We are all for classic and easy desserts! You shouldn’t need to be an expert baker to enjoy a delicious homemade sweet treat at home, right? Well, this vegan blueberry cobbler recipe will make you feel like a contestant in The American Baking Show! Are you up for it?
Vegan Blueberry Cobbler
This is such a classic recipe! A comforting and super-easy vegan blueberry cobbler dessert loved by all and pretty much foolproof when it comes to cooking skills. You can use different berries if you want to experiment a bit!
For the berries:
- 4 cups of frozen blueberries
- 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
For the topping:
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons + 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
- ¼ cup of cold vegan butter
- 1 cup of plant-based milk (any type)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place blueberries in a baking dish and sprinkle on the sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Mix with a spoon and allow to sit as you prepare the dough.
To make your dough: In a medium mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar and whisk until throughly mixed. Cut in the butter. Do do this, cut the butter into small chunks using a sharp knife, taking care not to melt the butter. Add the chopped butter to the flour mixture, and working quickly with dry hands, massage the butter and flour mixture together until incorporated and only small chunks of butter remain. Finally, add the plant-based milk and mix with a spoon to form a thick dough.
Using the spoon, add dollops of the dough on top of the blueberry mixture in the baking dish, leaving some spots exposed. This doesn't have to look neat and even—cobblers should have a rustic look!
Bake for 50 minutes, or until the dough turns a very light golden color and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the dough comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow cool.
Serve with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream (or vegan whipped cream) and enjoy!
If you have leftovers, this cobbler can be stored in the fridge and reheated in the oven or microwave. It's still delicious the next day!
A Foolproof Vegan Dessert!
This vegan blueberry cobbler is as easy as it gets! It basically uses the same principles as an apple crumble. Juice and sweet fruits at the bottom and rich and delicious dough (or crumble) on top. Easy peasy! You’ll need berries or stone fruit and a yummy easy to prepare the dough mixture on top. Here we use blueberries, but you could use strawberries, peach, apricot, or blackberries.
What makes this dish so perfect is the natural occurring sauce created by the berries! The sugar used to marinate them makes their juices come out and creates this unbelievably good saucy cobbler. I’m sure you’ll love it!
The Best Cobbler Toppings!
I have to admit that this incredible dessert doesn’t necessarily need any topping, but as a topping-aholic I cannot resist. Let’s begin brainstorming a bit.
The obvious and most delicious option is vegan vanilla ice cream! It melts with the warm berries and creates an even more amazing sauce! Drool! If you don’t have any or want to go classic, you could simply add some vegan whipped cream to it. The ones at the stores are super yummy, but you could make your own like this one!
Another super quick and straightforward option is to add a dollop of thick coconut yogurt on top! A perfect way to add creaminess and nutritious fats to the mix. Did someone say vegan blueberry cobbler for breakfast? I’m in!
Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Fruit?
The answer is whichever you have available! They say fresh is always best, but I’m not sure it applies to this recipe. Frozen fruits tend to be juicer since they thaw in the cooking process, and that’s a good thing in my book! The juicier the cobbler, the yummier! If you happen to be lucky enough to have fresh berries you need to use up, then fresh would be perfect too!
What about using some frozen mixed berries? Delicious, right? Imagine all those fantastic colors swirled together. So good!
Warm or Cold?
Usually, cobbler is served warm, but if that’s not your thing, you can let it cool down and serve at room temperature. If you can’t eat it straight away and want to save it for later, you can let it cool down and keep it in the fridge until you do, but I have to say, the experience won’t be the same! The juiciness won’t be the same. Plus, that vegan vanilla ice cream melting is a sight not to be missed, right?
How Long Does Blueberry Cobbler Keep For?
Now, if you’re wondering how to store your cobbler and how long does it keep for then I would say for about 4 to 5 days comfortably in the fridge. I have a confession to make; I love leftover desserts cold and straight out of the fridge. What about you? Give a try and let me know!
