Ingredients Needed To Make This Easy Blueberry Cobbler
- Baking Powder

PRO TIP: If using fresh fruit, taste to determine the sweetness and ripeness. If the berries are a little sour, I recommend tossing the fruit in a couple of tablespoons of sugar before adding them into the cobbler.
How To Make An Easy Blueberry Cobbler
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the butter into a 2-quart sized baking dish. Place the dish in the oven as it preheats until the butter is fully melted, about 3-5 minutes.
- Whisk together flour, sugar, milk, and baking powder in a small bowl. Once the butter is melted, pour the flour mixture into the baking dish.
- Sprinkle blueberries on top of the batter or spoon pie filling into the batter, but do not mix the blueberries into the batter.
