This gluten-free blueberry cobbler is the perfect delicious dessert. It features an incredibly delicious blueberry filling and a fluffy cake topping.
By the time this cobbler is ready, you will have some sweet blueberries topped with a deliciously fluffy vanilla cake. It is an excellent combination that does not require any extra accompaniments. However, some custard is pretty nice poured over the top.
A single batch of this cobbler should feed roughly four people. You can easily double or triple the recipe if you need to feed more. I also recommend serving the dessert with some extra accompaniments.
The leftovers of this cobbler are perfect for an easy breakfast the next day. It is great warm, or cold. You can keep the leftovers in the refrigerator for three days or three months in the freezer.
What to Serve with Blueberry Cobbler
There are lots of condiments that will match nicely with the flavors of this cobbler. Below are just a couple of ideas on what to serve with this delicious dessert.
A scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is one of my favorite additions to this delicious cobbler. It matches beautifully with the flavors of the blueberries and cake. I highly recommend giving it a try.
Some homemade custard will work nicely poured over the top of the cobbler. If you do not have time to make it at home, then some store-bought custard will work nicely. I love the super thick custard the most.
A drizzle of cream is the perfect accompaniment to this delicious dessert. It helps cut through the sweetness of the cobbler while adding a delicious creamy texture. It is the easiest way to slightly change this dish.
Adjusting the Recipe
Doubling the blueberries is an excellent option if you want loads of delicious fruit. I do not recommend changing the cake recipe if you do decide to add more fruit.
You can add some more spices into the cake mixture for a bit more flavor. A combination of nutmeg and cinnamon will add some delicious flavors into the cake mixture. Perfect if you are after a spiced blueberry cobbler.
Some more fruit can be added in with the blueberries. You may want to par-cook the fruit, so it is tender. I recommend something like pears or apples for the best results. A blueberry and pear crisp is certainly a must-try.
Fresh or frozen blueberries will work nicely in this dessert. I typically use frozen blueberries as they are available all year round and are often cheaper than fresh blueberries. If you are using frozen blueberries, then I recommend that you allow them to defrost slightly.
