Some days you need a small batch to get you through. This cobbler is the perfect size for two (maybe even 3 people if you're cautious) people.
I used to try to make healthy dessert and while it was a fun challenge, I find that if I make smaller versions of the real deal, I end up feeling more satisfied and happy with my homemade dessert. I like these smaller recipes because as much as I do enjoy dessert, I don't need it lingering in my kitchen all week.
Use the same base for any type of cobbler you want. Peaches are great, blueberries, even blackberries!
Blueberry Cobbler for Two
- Small Cast Iron Skillet or Pie Dish
- Glass Measuring Cup
- Medium Sized Mixing Bowl
- ½ stick butter (¼ cup) unsalted, melted
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup milk
- 1 cup blueberries
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a cast iron skillet with nonstick spray or melted butter.
- Melt ½ stick of butter in a microwavable measuring cup or dish and set to the side.
- In a small bowl, mix the ½ cup sugar, ½ cup flour, ¾ teaspoon baking powder, and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Whisk together to combine.
- Slowly whisk in the ½ cup milk to the dry mixture. Stir well.
- Pour the butter into the mixture and stir well. The batter should be smooth and thin.
- Pour batter into the cast iron skillet.
- Pour the blueberries over the top and spread them out evenly. Try not to mix them into the batter too much.
- Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. You'll need to watch this depending on your oven. You don't want it to be runny inside at all. I like mine crunchy on the outside, so I tend to bake it on the 35-40 minute mark.
- Once it's golden and bubbly, remove it from the oven and serve it with delicious vanilla ice cream!
- You may use self rising flour instead of all purpose. If so, omit the baking powder and salt.
Treating dessert as a treat helps me remember that it can be a part of a healthy lifestyle. I hope you have time to enjoy a favorite treat this week, too!
