"This recipe works great with other cobbler fruit and is an excellent light dessert that isn't too sweet! Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream." — Jen

I've made this recipe a few times now and must say that the addition of cinnamon both into the berry mixture and cobbler batter really makes this recipe pop. I add about a 1/2 teaspoon to each, but also increase the amount of berries to 5 cups and orange juice to about 1/2 cup. Also I read many reviews of this recipe being too sweet, but I find that with fruit recipes you really have to taste the fruit before you use it to know how much sugar is needed. I rather like the cakey cobbler this recipe produces as opposed to some with a denser topping. The best compliment this recipe can get from me is that even my very picky hubby requests it regularly. Thanks for a nice basic recipe.
This was not a cobbler recipe for me. What I call a cobbler has a crusty crust and this cobbler had a cake like topping which was thick and absorbed the filling into it. The fruit underneath tasted great, but I just did not like the cake like top.
Terrific recipe vaulted into the five-star category by two changes. I have added 1/2 tsp of lemon zest(grated peel) and a bare sprinkle of cinnamon to the blueberry mixture on the bottom. Have added a streusel topping (over the existing two layers in the original recipe) consisting of 1/3 c. Bisquick, 1/3 c. packed brown sugar, 2 T. butter and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. The crunch and nuttiness were missing previously. Mix all streusel topping ingredients together with a pastry blender or forks and sprinkle evenly over the middle layer, baking for 35-40 minutes as usual. Vanilla ice cream is a must for most fans. Oo-o-o, LOOK OUT! It's TOO GOOD!
This is really good! But I did make some changes, namely:
1) I used frozen blueberries.
2) To the berry mix, I added about 2 dashes of ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, and 1.5 tbsp. cornstarch. I also increased the white sugar by 1 tbsp (total of 4 tbsp). The sweetness was just right.
3) I used a rectangular pan, 9.5" x 7".
I think that the serving size is more like 4 than 6.
Oh boy! Was this ever a HUGE hit with my family and guests! The only modifications I made were: Instead of 1/3 C pure orange juice, I diluted it down with water, to make 1/3 C liquid. (I am not a big orange juice fan, so I adjusted it for my liking!) I used 4 Cups blueberries, because we had an overabundance of them, and didn't want them to go to waste. The blueberries bake down, and didn't overtake the entire cobbler. Finally, I doubled the topping, but found that the center did not cook fully, so next time I might only do it 1.5 times versus doubling the recipe. We will make this again and again! It is WONDERFUL!
Oh my gosh...this is an outstanding recipe. My daughter and I picked blueberries this morning and I made it tonight. My family devoured it. My husband happened to accidentally drop his second helping on the floor and I thought he was going to cry. Vanilla ice cream on top is the way to go. Thanks for the recipe!! I will make again and again!
There isn't enough crumb topping in this recipe, but this stuff tastes fan-friggin-tastic regardless! Recommend adding about 50%, or even doubling the crust portion of the recipe.
This recipe was amazing! My first cobbler ever, and it was immediately gobbled up! I made the following changes to it, based off of other reviews. 1) I used 4 cups of blueberries. 2) I used brown sugar instead of white sugar with the blueberries. 3) I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon both to the blueberries and the batter. 4) I added 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the blueberries. 5) I sprinkled the blueberries with a little bit of nutmeg. 6) I made 1.5 amount of batter (using 2 eggs). 7) I didn't have an 8x8 dish, so I used a 9x7. 8) I added a streusel topping: 5 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. My cobbler was done cooking in just under 30 minutes. I served it with Cool Whip, and it was a big hit. I know it sounds like a lot of changes, but I read a year's worth of reviews, and these were changes suggested by many users. I will definitely add this to my dessert rotation!
