There are countless ways to vary this blueberry cobbler for two. Here are a few ideas you may want to try.
- Make it gluten-free. Replace all-purpose flour with almond or coconut flour.
- Use another sweetener. Instead of sugar, use honey or maple syrup to sweeten the cobbler.
- Make it vegan. You can also swap butter for coconut oil or ghee and the milk with plant-based milk for a vegan option.
- Add more flavor and texture to your cobbler. Mix some chopped nuts like almonds or pecans into the topping mixture.
- Spice it up. A pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg will enhance the blueberry flavor further.
- Vary the fruit. While this recipe calls for blueberries, you can make variations using other seasonal fruits like strawberries, peaches, blackberries, raspberries or even apples. Adjust the sugar accordingly based on the sweetness of your chosen fruit. You can even mix different fruits.
- Use fresh blueberries. The best blueberry cobbler is made with fresh and ripe blueberries. Frozen berries can also be used but they can release more juice as they thaw during baking so you may need to adjust the liquid or add a little cornstarch.
- Adjust the sugar to taste. The filling of the cobbler should have a good balance of sweetness and tartness. Lemon juice adds tartness while sugar sweetens it up.
- Use the right size baking dish. To ensure the cobbler cooks properly, place it in an appropriately sized baking dish or ramekin. A small cast iron skillet works well for two servings. Or, divide it between two smaller ramekins.
- Serve warm. Once out of the oven, let the cobbler cool slightly before serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for extra deliciousness.
Cobbler is best served warm. Adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top never disappoints. The creamy, cold ice cream complements the warm, sweet blueberry filling and adds an extra touch of indulgence to this simple dessert.
The blueberry cobbler can be stored for up to three days. Let it cool completely and then place it in an airtight container. Make sure the lid is on securely to keep any moisture from getting in. It's also a good idea to place the container in the refrigerator, which will help keep the cobbler fresh longer.
If you plan on eating it longer than three days, freezing is your best option. Wrap the fruit cobbler tightly in plastic wrap or foil before placing it in an airtight freezer-safe container. When ready to eat, thaw the cobbler in the refrigerator overnight and reheat it before serving.
