Mennonite Blueberry Cobbler

I got this recipe when picking blueberries on the Mennonite farm when I was a little girl!

Original recipe makes 1 cobbler


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, cut into chunks
1/3 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 cups blueberries

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Cut 1/4 butter into flour mixture with two knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Whisk milk and egg together in a bowl; stir into flour mixture until just moistened.
  4. Spread blueberries in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle tapioca powder over blueberries; drizzle lemon juice over the top. Dot remaining butter pieces over blueberries. Drop batter in mounds over the blueberry mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cobbler is golden and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
