Blueberry Cobbler & The Brady Bunch

Singing the theme song to “The Brady Bunch” got me thinking about making a blueberry cobbler. (Yes, I’m still singing. LOL)  I’m doing my best to have fun in the kitchen during this pandemic and I have a lot of blueberries to use from our garden, so Blueberry Cobbler it is!

If you are not sure what a cobbler is and how it compares to a crisp, crumble, or buckle here’s a quick definition so you know the distinction between them. (source Martha Stewart Magazine)

Cobbler: Fruit base baked with a golden topping of biscuit dough, dropped in dollops over fruit. 
Crumble: Fruit base baked with a sugary streusel topping.
Crisp: Fruit base baked with a sugary, streusel topping (like the crumble) with added oats or nuts.
Buckle: A single layer cake with berries or fruit in the batter, giving it a “buckled” appearance.

A previous post on my blog featuring blueberries that might interest you: Life is Short So Let’s Make Dessert which combines fresh-picked peaches and blueberries into a type of cobbler. That post also includes an easy vanilla ice cream recipe which is a delicious addition to this dessert. I’ve also made blueberry muffins, jam, and a swirl roll-up to name a few ways I’ve used blueberries. (Recipes in posts linked at the end of this post.)

This recipe is quite different from my other blueberry cobbler post, yet just as tasty!

Oh so good by itself or served with vanilla ice cream. Oh, and do you have the theme song to “The Brady Bunch” still running around in your head? I thought so!
