Have you got 5 minutes? Great! That is literally all the time you’ll need to throw this bad boy together.  This cobbler was born one Sunday morning when I had less than an hour before I had to leave for brunch, and I had absolutely nothing to bring with me. Being a pastry chef means that when I am invited somewhere, I cannot simply “pick something up along the way.” That would be an atrocity. Blasphemous, even. I knew I could throw something together quickly, but I just didn’t know what. The giant bag of blueberries in my freezer coupled with my desire to use my large marbled baking dish led to the idea of cobbler. Aside from being extremely easy and super fast to assemble, this dessert is amazing because it’s one of the few southern-inspired foods that isn’t loaded with fat, so you really don’t have to feel bad when you go for seconds. (And trust me, you will go for seconds thirds!)

This blog does contain one other blueberry cobbler recipe, but I think I’ve outdone myself this time. The previous one was still delish, but it was much more labour intensive as it required making and shaping biscuit dough. This new and improved recipe is for a cobbler without biscuits, made instead with a crispy crumbly buttery cornmeal topping. Honestly, this is going to be my go-to from now on. I can’t wait to experiment with different types of fruits! Also, with only 7 ingredients and 5 minutes to prepare, why NOT make this more often?
