Blueberry Cobbler for Dad


Father's Day started last night around here. The Trout grilled a perfect steak and we had a marvelous salad using the 1905 salad dressing we bought at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. But the dessert--which is not common at our house--was the 'icing on the cake'.


My blogging friend, Mary, at "One Perfect Bite" always has the best recipes and we try 9 out of 10 and are always happy with the results. She gave the recipe for Blackberry Cobbler and it sounded wonderful. So, when I saw blueberries at the grocer this morning at a very good price, I knew I had to try it.


The Trout was very happy and said, "keep this recipe. I like the crunchy top." Mary said to follow the directions to a tee and I will admit, the topping sounded a little strange to me, but I followed orders as a good little soldier. No other cobbler recipes need be tried. This is the best and I can just imagine it will all sorts of fruit. I will admit that I forgot the buttermilk at the grocery store, but substituted one cup milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar which I let set for a few minutes. It worked just fine. As Mary says, throw away all other cobbler recipes and I have to agree 100%. After this, you need not look further.


Thank you, blogger friend, Mary, for making Father's Day weekend extra special around here.

  1. Thank you my dear for the wonderful cobbler treat - blueberries are fine but can't wait to try peaches or other berries - maybe some huckelberries when we are in Montana! As usual you showed how good a chef you are as well as being my wonderful wife and making my father duties much easier - LOVE YOU - The Trout
