Less than ten ingredients in my homemade Texas blueberry cobbler. Texas style cobbler has more of a cake-like texture, and you drop the fruit on top, and as it bakes, the cake rises on top. So good when it’s warm right out of the oven topped with vanilla ice cream!
Would you believe I’d hadn’t even heard of a Texas blueberry cobbler up until last year?
At this point, I’ve lived in Texas most of my life now, and somehow I’d skipped right over the worlds easiest dessert, right on to all the other things. I had my first Texas blueberry cobbler at a local bbq joint. I can still remember the day; it was blustery cold outside, and we stood in a line that seemed like forever. This place is so well known for their bbq, their ribs sell out within minutes of opening! And yes, they make more every single weekend and somehow, they still disappear!
So while we were waiting in what I call the worlds longest line, I happen to spot a worker bringing trays of what looked like blueberry cobbler and warm chocolate cake out of the kitchen. And though my husband was so hoping I’d go for the chocolate cake, I, of course, went for the cobbler. And I’m happy I tried it. Texas blueberry cobbler is like nothing you’ve had before. Especially when it’s warm, you can taste the cinnamon and the hint of cornmeal that gives the cake a little crispy texture and the warm blueberries as they melt in your mouth.
It’s a cake; it’s a cobbler, it’s basically the best thing ever.
Take it from someone who loves blueberry crisp  or a good blueberry muffin ; I take my blueberry desserts very seriously. So when I found something that tastes like a cross between a crisp and a muffin, you bet I’ve already made and shared this with everyone I know. Have you ever made or tasted a snack cake or a dump cake? Texas cobbler is very similar to those.
While still recipe testing, I made a batch for a dinner party I was hosting for ten people, and you know what? Every single person helped themselves to seconds.
Like with most things, Texas has its own way or doing things! A Texas-style cobbler is a buttery cake speckled with fresh fruit or berries and bakes up with a buttery snack cake. The coolest part is that the berries start on top and as the cake bakes, they move towards the middle, and the bottom and the cake develops a buttery golden top!
Regular or traditional blueberry cobbler is made with a biscuit topping – whether homemade or store-bought. The fruit filling (which can be anything from apples, to peaches, to berries, sits on the bottom of the pan and the biscuit topping bakes up on top. But if you ask a Texan, they’ll probably tell you that biscuits go with gravy and not on your cobbler!
Our Texas blueberry cobbler is much more simple to make and uses a cake mix. The edges get nice and golden brown and extra buttery. Trust me, once you have it, you’ll think twice before deciding what kind of cobbler you want to serve at your next shindig!
Though you can use just about any brand you like, I suggest making sure that your box mix is 16 ounces. Make sure you don’t use a family size or anything like that!
I suggest using a 9×13 baking dish. This is so that the baking time is accurate. Pictured is a dish that was slightly smaller than the size I mentioned, and it took several additional minutes. The things I do for a good picture! If I were to make this for us, I’d make it in a 9×13!
No, Texas blueberry cobbler is better served with a spoon, the way you’d scoop out a traditional cobbler as this many berries does make the cake a little unstable!
You can make this with canned peaches or even raspberries if blueberries aren’t your thing! Anything that you’d use in a fruit snack cake, or make a cobbler with, would work well here.
