Cobblers, crisps, and crumbles are some of my very favorite desserts to serve year-round. At some point during summer, I’m always serving this blueberry cobbler or this Peach Crumble recipe. Once the temperatures drop though and the weather turns crisp I turn toward my crisps such as Apple Crisp and Raspberry Crisp.

One of the very best life lessons I’ve ever learned is how to make this Easy Blueberry Cobbler. Just before I drove off to college an older friend of mine, who’d just moved into her first new house as a single woman, shared this recipe.

She told me how simple it was to have these four ingredients always stocked in your pantry and you could easily whip up this dessert whenever someone came to visit.

This blueberry cobbler, which is bursting with fresh blueberries and flavor, doesn’t actually have to be blueberry at all. You can easily change the filling for your favorite fruit, and though the recipe only calls for four ingredients, you can easily add some of your own favorites. Below I’ll show you how.

Since this has become one of my favorite recipes I’ve not found other flavor combinations such as this pecan pie cobbler, which makes a delicious fall dessert.

Make this delicious dish in minutes! You probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.

  • Prep. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and slice and layer the butter on the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish.
  • Batter. Whisk the flour, sugar, and milk together until smooth. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

How to Make Self-Rising Flour

No self-rising flour? No problem. Here’s a quick way to make your own. This will make 1 cup of self-rising flour, which is exactly what you need for this recipe.

  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Whisk these ingredients together and you’re ready to use it for this recipe.

Other Delicious Versions of this Cobbler

You can get extremely creative with this cobbler recipe and use your favorite pie filling and fruit to come up with your own combination. Some of my favorites are below. I can’t recommend serving each and everyone though with tons of vanilla ice cream.

  • Peach Pie Filling + Freshly Sliced Peaches
  • Cherry Pie Filling + Fresh Blueberries
  • Apple Pie Filling + Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Topping
  • Blueberry Pie Filling + Mixed Fresh Berries
  • Strawberry Pie Filling + Fresh Strawberries

If you want to make your own pie filling you absolutely can do that as well. Here’s my favorite Apple Pie Filling.

  1. Wow, stumbled upon this easy blueberry cobbler recipe, and it’s a game-changer! 🌟 Just whipped it up in no time, and the result was pure bliss. Seriously, if you’re into quick and delicious desserts, this one’s a winner. Can’t wait to make it again. Kudos to you, and looking forward to checking out more easy gems on your website!

  2. 1 star
    I don’t know what went wrong. Possibly because I used regular flour vs self rising and 1percent instead of whole milk and I didn’t use canned blueberry pie filling but a speciality that may have been less thick, but it didn’t turn out well at all. There was too much butter, the ‘cobbler’ part was gummy. Unfortunately the day after when I returned to the recipe online I noted how to make self-rising flour. I just may have to try again.

    1. Hey Kathleen, I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you! Since it only has a handful of ingredients they are specific so the self-rising flour isn’t replaceable unfortunately. If not used it will result in a gummy cobbler. I do hope you try it again though.
