  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) softened butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lightly grease an 8x8-inch baking dish and combine the blueberries, 3 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and orange juice in it.
  • Cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar using an electric mixer until creamy.
  • Beat in egg and egg yolk.
  • Add vanilla.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt and add to mixing bowl, beating just until it is mixed in. Spoon mixture over blueberries. It will be thick and will not completely cover them.
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar on top.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until top is light golden brown and filling is bubbling.


I like the taste of nutmeg in my cobbler, but if you are not a fan of it, leave it out.
