A thick batter (wet dough) results from this. Add in a bit more milk and let the batter rest (10 minutes).Mix the flour (1 ¾ cups), sugar (6 tablespoons), and baking powder in a medium bowl.
- 4Leave small spaces so that the blueberries could pop through. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar (2 tablespoons) and the cinnamon. Sprinkle this on the top of the batter.Spoon the batter over the blueberries you prepared earlier.
- 5To test this, a knife or a toothpick inserted into the cobbler should still be clean when you pull it out (no batter, just syrup).Bake until the top of the cobbler is golden brown (for about 20-25 minutes).
- 6Cool the blueberry cobbler before you serve it.
The dessert can keep in your fridge for two days.
How to Bake a Blueberry Cobbler
Sweets- it seems difficult to live without sweet delicacies. Suffice to say, sweets add spice to life. When it comes to sweet recipes, among the most favorite and loved delicacy is the blueberry cobbler. Basically, cobblers served as subs for conventional pies, and these delicious delicacies were introduced to the circulation during the 1850s.
The conventional New England style entails chunky biscuit topping- alternative for the pie pastry. There are a lot of people who thinks that cobbler is quite tedious to make. As a matter of fact, it only requires traditional baking ingredients such as whipping cream and full fat sour cream. Nevertheless, there are some home bakers who prefer to look for an excellent alternative for the latter.
Some people, instead of utilizing full fat sour cream, they incorporate a fat-free kind of cream and for the record; this kind of cream is undetectable. In terms of nutritional profile, fat-free kind of sour cream is much preferable. The modern cobbler has lesser fat compared to the conventional recipe, yet manages to keep an amazing buttery topping flavor.
