Cast Iron Skillet Blueberry Cobbler is an old fashioned blueberry cobbler that you can bake right in your cast iron skillet. Fluffy skillet cake is studded with sweet blueberries in every single bite.
Cast Iron Skillet Blueberry Cobbler
My husband is a huge fan of blueberries! So I wanted to surprise him with a refreshing blueberry dessert. So, I whipped out my cast iron and created this cast iron dessert.
Add a scoop of ice cream, and grab that spoon and dive into the ultimate blueberry recipe!
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries In Cobbler
The beauty of this recipe is you can use fresh blueberries or frozen. Both will work. The frozen berries will leak more color into your cobbler, but the flavor will taste just the same.
Frozen blueberries are frozen at their prime. So you will have sweet and juicy blueberries for your homemade cobbler. Plus if you enjoy cobbler, try my peach cobbler!
How To Serve Up This Blueberry Dessert
- Scoop of vanilla ice cream
- Top with a dollop of whipped cream
- Eat it plain
- Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over the top or lemon zest
We served ours with ice cream. Nothing better than a warm cobbler with melting sweet ice cream.
How to Zest A Lemon
If you are wondering how to zest a lemon let me share some pointers. I don’t use a lot of lemon in baking, but when I do I always love the flavor it brings!
- Use a zester for removing the yellow portion of the lemon.
- Move the lemon in one direction.
- Peeling only the yellow portion. The white will cause your zest to become bitter. Just rotate the lemon to zest the whole lemon rind.
If you don’t own a zester you can use a small knife or even a peeler.
Does Blueberry Cobbler Freeze Well
You absolutely can freeze this cast iron cobbler. Just allow it to cool down once baked, and then transfer to a freezer container or sealable bag.
The cobbler will freeze for around 2-3 months when froze properly!
How to Prepare Blueberry Cobbler
- Mix together dry ingredients.
- Add milk to the dry ingredients and blend until smooth
- Melt butter and add sugar.
- add in blueberries on saute for 3-4 minutes
- Pour batter over blueberries and bake.
Storing Leftover Cast Iron Skillet Blueberry Cobbler
Because of the fruit, I find this cobbler stores best when refrigerated. You will extend the life off the cobbler by an extra day or two.
Then when you want a slice eat cold from the fridge, or microwave for a few seconds for a fresh out of the oven flavor.
