Cobblers are hands down my favorite dessert to eat during the summertime. Peach Cobbler is my favorite, but this Blueberry Cobbler is a close second.

Fresh blueberries get tossed with sugar, a little cinnamon, and some orange juice. They are covered in a cobbler dough made with butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla extract. and baking powder. Plus a little ground nutmeg for flavor.

35 minutes in the oven and the blueberries cook down wonderfully and turn a vibrant dark purple color.

The exterior of the cobbler topping gets a little crispy and crunchy, but it is nice and soft underneath, especially the parts that soak up the blueberry juices.

The ratio of blueberries to topping is just right.

This recipe only makes an 8×8-inch pan and believe me it will disappear in a hurry!

A bowl of blueberry cobbler served warm with vanilla ice cream is the perfect way to finish off a light summer meal.
