Blueberry Cobbler


  • 3 cups blueberries
  • Sweetener; choose one:
    • 1/2 cup sugar or
    • 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, it measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion) or Splenda, if you prefer, *, or
    • 1/2 cup Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, it measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion) or Splenda, if you prefer, *
  • 2 tsps fresh lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup milk (I use fat free, but any type will work)
  • 1 egg, well beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 400-degrees.
  2. Grease a large (1-1/2-qt) square baking dish.
  3. Combine blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a bowl.
  4. Spoon into the baking dish.
  5. In another bowl combine the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  6. Work the butter until the mixture is in coarse crumbs.
  7. Lightly beat the egg and milk together, stir this into the dry mixture to form a smooth dough.
  8. Spoon portions of this dough over the berries, pressing slightly to cover as much as possible.
  9. Bake 35-40 minutes or until the cobbler is light brown.

Blueberry Pie

See this page: Blueberry pie, recipe and directions and illustrated!

Canning and freezing the blueberries:

*Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, it measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion) - or Splenda, if you prefer it, which is the trademark name for sucralose sweeteners.  They are different from other artificial sweeteners like Nutrasweet (or aspartame) and SweetNLow (tm); in that Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion). Or Splenda, if you prefer, which doesn't break down when you cook with it.  It is also considered to be "more natural" since it is a modified form of ordinary sugar. However, even the company that makes Splenda generally doesn't recommend completely substituting sugar with Splenda. They recommend a 50-50 mix seems to work best; otherwise both consistency and flavor suffer. But at least you can cut the empty calories almost in half, which can be important for diabetics!

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce.
