5cupsfresh or frozen blueberries
2tablespoonsfresh lemon juice
2cupsgranulated sugar, divided into ¾ cup and 1 ¼ cups
5tablespoonsunsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 ½cupsboiling water
Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9 x 13’’ baking dish with coated with cooking spray. Spread the blueberries in the bottom of the dish and sprinkle the fresh lemon juice over the top.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, ¾ cup sugar, milk, butter and vanilla extract. Use a hand mixer and mix on low speed until just combined. There may be a few small lumps in the batter, which is fine.
Add 1 ½ cups of water to a kettle or small pot and bring to a boil over high heat. While the water boils, combine the remaining 1 ¼ cups sugar and the cornstarch in a small bowl. Use a spoon to sprinkle this evenly over top of the cobbler batter. Place the cobbler dish on top of a rimmed baking sheet.
Once the water comes to a boil, pour it evenly over the cobbler. Use the back of a wooden spoon to poke several holes through the cobbler surface.
Carefully place the cobbler into the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes until a golden, shiny crust forms on top and the fruit bubbles through the top. Cool for 30 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.
*The leftover cobbler will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.RECIPE UPDATE 7/21/20 - While baking powder is listed in the ingredients list and instructions, it was accidentally left out of the video instructions. Please use the baking powder so your cobbler crust will not be gummy!
