Mini Blueberry Cobbler Ingredients
- Prepared Yellow Cake Mix Batter
- Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
Fresh or Frozen Blueberries?
Both can be used! Fresh blueberries are perfect when they are in season. But frozen fruit is perfect in off season times.
Otherwise, frozen blueberries can be exchanged in place of the fresh ones. No extra prep needed. Just make the recipe as you normally would.
How to Make the Cake Mix Topping
Any type of boxed yellow cake mix can be used. Just follow the directions on the box to prepare the cake batter.
Use a KitchenAid mixer fitted with a flat paddle and mixing bowl or use a hand mixer. Add the eggs and oil to the bowl.
Pour in the dry cake mix and top with water. Beat all ingredients together and then scrape the sides of the mixing bowl.
Continue mixing for 2 minutes until the cake batter is smooth and lump free. Set aside until ready to assemble the individual mini cobblers.
Can I use a different cake mix for this blueberry cobbler?
Yes! This cobbler recipe has great versatility and can be adjusted to your liking. Choose whatever cake flavor that you like.
You can use white, spice, butter, or even lemon cake mix as a flavorful variation of the classic cobbler recipe. You can even use a sugar free cake mix or a gluten free cake mix.
How to Make Blueberry Cobbler
Preheat the Blackstone Griddle to the lowest setting. Gather the ingredients to make your old-fashioned blueberry cobbler.
Prepare the yellow cake mix batter. Clean and rinse your fresh blueberries. Place the blueberries into the large ramekins.
Make sure to only fill about ½ way with fruit. Top the blueberries with sugar and flour. Gently, stir to combine all ingredients in the ramekin.
Carefully, place a scoop of the cake mix top on-top of the blueberry mixture. Don’t fill past the inner rim otherwise the cake batter will run all over the place.
How to Bake a Blueberry Cobbler on the Blackstone Griddle
Learning to bake a Blackstone blueberry cobbler is very easy. Place a piece of parchment paper down on the hot griddle.
This helps to prevent the flat top griddle from smoking and giving your dessert a funky smoke flavor. Set the filled ramekins onto the hot griddle and cover with a dome lid.
This creates an oven effect to bake the cobbler recipe. Bake for 30 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a clean dry toothpick into the cake top part only.
If the toothpick comes out clean, then the blueberry cobbler with cake mix is done. If the toothpick comes out wet with batter on it, then bake a little longer.
In a couple minutes, retest the cake mix with another clean toothpick. When it comes out clean, carefully remove from the griddle.
Use an oven mitt because the ramekins will be very hot. Eat the blueberry cobbler piping hot with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or let cool for later.
Oven Blueberry Cobbler
If you don’t have a Blackstone Griddle, that’s okay. Bake the mini cobblers in your oven. Prepare the easy blueberry cobbler while the kitchen oven is preheating to 350°F.
Once the ramekin blueberry cobblers are ready and the oven is preheated, put them on a sheet pan. Place them in the hot oven and set the kitchen timer for 15 minutes.
Let them bake and check for doneness after the 15 minutes. Cook longer if needed or remove from the oven. Let the cobblers cool.
How to Store Mini Blueberry Cobbler
Once the ramekins and cobbler has cooled, cover each with plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for up to 6 days.
Serve cold or reheat in the microwave or air fryer until the desired temperature is reached.
How Long Can Blueberry Cobbler Sit Out Un-refrigerated?
Yes, all fruit cobblers may remain unrefrigerated overnight. Any longer than that, the cobbler will start getting an off taste.
If the fruit cobbler is not eaten within a day, it is recommended to cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
