Blueberry Cream Cheese Cobbler

There’s nothing quite like the sweet, juicy taste of fresh blueberries, and this blueberry cobbler recipe perfectly captures their summery flavor. With a hint of lemon zest and creamy bits of cream cheese, this dessert is sure to be a hit at any gathering. Best of all, it’s easy to make and pairs wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 4 oz cream cheese, cold and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving

To make:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Brown the Butter: In a 10″ cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and continue to stir until it goes quiet and turns brown. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Pour the browned butter into a mixing bowl and let it cool for about 15 minutes. Do not clean the skillet, as it will be used to bake the cobbler.
  3. Prepare Dry Ingredients: While the butter cools, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. Prepare Blueberries: In another bowl, combine the blueberries, lemon zest, and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Set aside.
  5. Make the Batter: Once the butter has cooled (it can be a little warm but not hot), add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract to the bowl. Whisk to combine. Then whisk in half of the dry ingredients, followed by the milk, and then the remaining dry ingredients. The batter should be the consistency of thin pancake batter.
  6. Assemble the Cobbler: Pour the batter into the same skillet used to brown the butter. Scatter a handful of blueberries on top, then evenly disperse the cream cheese pieces throughout the cobbler. Top with the remaining blueberries.
  7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool and Serve: Allow the cobbler to cool for at least 30 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
