Max’s Five Ingredient Blueberry Cobbler

Easy five ingredient blueberry cobbler // Karista's Kitchen

I love it when children get excited about cooking.  When they realize they can take a few simple fresh ingredients and transform them into something delicious to eat.  The dazzled little expressions on their precious faces says it all.

We have several “little Chef’s” in our extended family.  Our two tweens, Max and Amelia, definitely get motivated about good food.  Not that our teenagers and young adult members don’t cook, but I have to tell you, when Max and Amelia get cookin’ in the kitchen it’s usually a delicious masterpiece of a meal.

Easy Five Ingredient Blueberry Cobbler // Karista's Kitchen

This yummy blueberry cobbler recipe is compliments of our Chef Max.  While visiting my sister one summer, Max whipped this up in a snap and I fell into blueberry heaven!  It was so simple, so fresh and so delightful.

The cobbler is incredible when prepared exactly as written.  However, I played around with the recipe a bit and added a few different flavors that compliment blueberries.  The first cobbler I added fresh ground cardamom, another I added a pinch of cinnamon and the last cobbler I added lemon zest and dried lavender buds.  They were all astoundingly delicious!

However you decide to prepare this blueberry cobbler, you won’t be disappointed.   A great big special thanks goes out to our Chef Max for sharing this delectable dish!

Keep dinner simple… Enjoy the flavors of life.

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,


Max’s Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Max’s Fresh Blueberry Cobbler


  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • Zest of one lemon (optional)


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  • Melt the butter and add it to the bottom of an 8x11 glass baking dish or baking pan.
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar and milk. Pour it on top of the butter.
  • Toss the lemon zest with the blueberries and then sprinkle the blueberries over the top of the flour mixture.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until the cobbler is golden brown on top.
  • Serve with Vanilla Bean ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
  • Notes

    For a variation you can add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom or ground ginger to the blueberries. Or try adding 1/4 teaspoon of dried lavender buds.

    To make your own self rising flour: for each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and mix together. You can store this in a sealed container.
