Rustic Florida Blueberry Cobbler

For dessert, we’re sticking with blueberries for a true Southern favorite, Timineri’s Rustic Florida Blueberry Cobbler. Layers of sugary goodness go into this baked treat, topped with a flaky, golden brown crust.  Pair this with a glass of Florida Sangria and a picturesque Florida sunset, and what else could one ask for?

Rustic Florida Blueberry Cobbler

4 to 6 Servings



  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup natural sugar


  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup natural sugar
  • 1 teaspoon natural vanilla
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place the butter in an 8-inch square glass baking dish (no substitutes) and melt in the microwave. In a mixing bowl, combine lemon juice and blueberries. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the blueberry mixture to the baking dish with the melted butter. Do not stir. Tip: Put cobbler baking dish on top of a foil-lined cookie sheet to catch any spillover during baking.


Make Topping: Combine all of the topping ingredients in a small bowl. Pour this mixture over the blueberries and bake 45 minutes, or until brown. Serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
