This was a lovely, simple, delicious recipe that I'll be making again. It was the perfect ratio of fruit to batter, as long as the fruit is spread out to one layer in the baking dish.
I don't like to make major changes to a recipe the first time I make it but the reviews to reduce the sugar were so consistent that I reduced the amount of sugar in the recipe; 1/2 cup only in the batter and 3/4 cup in the topping. I wouldn't reduce it below a 1/2 cup in the batter or it would be too thin, but I would reduce the topping further to a 1/2 cup.
I added a full teaspoon of cinnamon, as a couple of reviews indicated that adding more cinnamon made a very positive difference and I'm glad I did. I always think cinnamon and blueberries is a strange pairing, but it's also always a nice surprise.
The last change I made was to add a couple teaspoons of cornstarch to the blueberry-lemon juice mixture, which made sure that it didn't turn out soggy as it had for a few members, and instead it made a lovely thick syrup.
Because of past cobblers I've made, I sifted the flour and baking powder together. That helped the texture of the cobbler be "cobblery" but not cakey, lumpy, or heavy. I also used organic sugar rather than white sugar. I used lactose-free whole milk + a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
I think that there was too much baking powder because I could taste it so next time I'll reduce by 1/2 tsp. Since I sift, b.powder isn't as much as issue.
