Vegan Blueberry Cobbler

This Vegan Blueberry Cobbler is a gem. Not only because it’s vegan but because it’s berry delicious! The sweet and buttery crumble topping along with the fresh blueberries is a match made in heaven. I LOVE blueberries. My all time favorite berry. When they are in season, I can’t help but buy a big container and try to figure out ways to use them up before they go bad. This cobbler is great because it uses frozen blueberries so you can enjoy all year round.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CRISP AND A COBBLER?

Vegan cobbler recipes or vegan crisp recipes are very popular desserts to feed a crowd. Both are easy to make with basic ingredients in 1 bowl and ready in about 30 minutes.

They are also known as ‘spoon’ desserts as they are easily spooned into your plate without fancy presentation.

However, while both desserts are made of a juicy fruit layer topped with basically the same ingredients, cobblers and crisps have very different textures.

  • Crisp or crumble – both have a crispy topping made by rubbing ingredients with your fingertips to form crumbly pieces that look like granola. Often, crisps use rolled oats too to add an extra crispy texture.
  • Cobbler – on the opposite, a cobbler is topped with dollops of buttery biscuit dough resulting in a fluffy, cakey topping that looks like a ‘bumpy’ cobbled road.

HOW TO MAKE A VEGAN BLUEBERRY COBBLER RECIPE

There is nothing easier than making a vegan cobbler recipe.

I love this recipe when berries are in season or when we simply crave a quick family dessert that doesn’t require hours to make.

All you need to make this easy vegan cobbler recipe are a few ingredients.

BERRY LAYER INGREDIENTS

The berry layer of a cobbler is supposed to turn into a thick, sticky muddle or jam. You need 3 main ingredients, plus optional spices to make it.

  • Blueberries – fresh or frozen, you don’t need to thaw the berries before using them in this recipe. Also, any other berries you love would work in this recipe. Feel free to mix the berries as well to create a berry cobbler. The best berries for this recipe are raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries.
  • Cornstarch – or tapioca flour or arrowroot flour. Any of these starchy flours work well. The purpose of this ingredient is to absorb any extra liquid to avoid a runny cobbler.
  • Lemon zest or orange zest – grate the outer skin of one of these acid fruits, finely chop, and add to flavor the fruit base.
  • Sugar – you can reduce the amount of sugar depending on how sweet your berries are. Another option is to make this dessert sugar-free, and diabetes-friendly, using erythritol or xylitol.

Simply combine all the ingredients above directly into a greased baking dish. Set aside while you make the cobbler biscuit recipe.

COBBLER BISCUIT INGREDIENTS

The biscuit topping of a cobbler recipe is cakey with a crispy outer. To achieve this amazing texture, you need the ingredients below:

  • All-purpose flour – or spelt flour or all-purpose gluten-free flour. This recipe doesn’t work with almond flour or coconut flour!
  • Sugar – same as above, you can use less sugar or sugar-free alternatives like erythritol. Other healthy sugar options are unrefined cane sugar like demerara sugar or coconut sugar. Not that these sugars are darker in color and therefore, would turn the biscuit brown.
  • Vegan butter – melt your butter before using or use melted coconut oil.
  • Non-dairy milk – like coconut milk or almond milk. You can also replace the milk with lemon juice to add a tangy flavor to your dessert. Lemon and blueberries go very well together.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt

In a large mixing bowl or in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and combine.

Then, stir in the liquid ingredients: melted vegan butter, vanilla, and almond milk until it forms a dough.

ASSEMBLING VEGAN COBBLER

First, place the berries of your choice into a 9-inch x 13-inch greased baking dish. Combine the berries with cornstarch, sugar, and any additional flavor or zest you want.

Then, sprinkle the biscuit topping over the fruits. It doesn’t have to be perfect just drop dollops of biscuits a bit everywhere to look like a ‘cobbled’ stone pathway.

Finally, bake for 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) until the biscuit is golden brown.

SERVING VEGAN BLUEBERRY COBBLER

First, cool the cobbler at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving. This allows the berry juice to thicken and form a jam-like texture.

Next, spoon some cobbler onto a shallow bowl and top with vegan toppings of your choice.

  • Vegan vanilla ice cream
  • Coconut yogurt
  • Whipped coconut cream
  • Melted vegan white chocolate chips
  • Shredded coconut

STORING VEGAN COBBLER

This vegan cobbler must be stored in the fridge, in a sealed container, or in its baking dish tent with a piece of foil or wrap. It lasts in the fridge for up to 4 days.

You can serve leftover cobbler cold or slightly rewarm the cobbler in the oven before serving in a preheated oven at 325°F (150°C) until the biscuit crisp and the filling is lukewarm.

CAN I MAKE THIS RECIPE WITH DIFFERENT FRUITS?

Yes, you can replace the blueberries with other fruits, not only berries. For example, you can use:

  • Peaches – to make a vegan peach cobbler. Simple peel the fresh peaches and slice or use canned peach slices.
  • Apples – use peeled, cored crispy apples like honey crisp.
  • Rhubarb – peel and dice fresh rhubarb. You may want to use more sugar with this fruit to cover the acidity or rhubarb or combine half blueberries and half rhubarb to make a vegan blueberry rhubarb cobbler.
  • Cherries – fresh or frozen.
  • Any berries – or a mix of berry.

Super-Easy Vegan Blueberry Cobbler

Super-Easy Vegan Blueberry Cobbler

We are all for classic and easy desserts! You shouldn’t need to be an expert baker to enjoy a delicious homemade sweet treat at home, right? Well, this vegan blueberry cobbler recipe will make you feel like a contestant in The American Baking Show! Are you up for it?

A Foolproof Vegan Dessert Recipe!

This vegan blueberry cobbler is as easy as it gets! It basically uses the same principles as an apple crumble. Juice and sweet fruits at the bottom and rich and delicious dough (or crumble) on top. Easy peasy! You’ll need berries or stone fruit and a yummy easy to prepare the dough mixture on top. Here we use blueberries, but you could use strawberries, peach, apricot, or blackberries. 

What makes this dish so perfect is the natural occurring sauce created by the berries! The sugar used to marinate them makes their juices come out and creates this unbelievably good saucy cobbler. I’m sure you’ll love it! 

The Best Cobbler Toppings

I have to admit that this incredible dessert doesn’t necessarily need any topping, but as a topping-aholic I cannot resist. Let’s begin brainstorming a bit.

The obvious and most delicious option is vegan vanilla ice cream! It melts with the warm berries and creates an even more amazing sauce! Drool! If you don’t have any or want to go classic, you could simply add some vegan whipped cream to it.

Another super quick and straightforward option is to add a dollop of thick coconut yogurt on top! A perfect way to add creaminess and nutritious fats to the mix. Did someone say vegan blueberry cobbler for breakfast? I’m in! 

Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Fruit? 

The answer is whichever you have available! They say fresh is always best, but I’m not sure it applies to this recipe. Frozen fruits tend to be juicer since they thaw in the cooking process, and that’s a good thing in my book! The juicier the cobbler, the yummier! If you happen to be lucky enough to have fresh berries you need to use up, then fresh would be perfect too! 

What about using some frozen mixed berries? Delicious, right? Imagine all those fantastic colors swirled together. So good!  

Should I Serve This Cobbler Warm or Cold?

Usually, cobbler is served warm, but if that’s not your thing, you can let it cool down and serve at room temperature. If you can’t eat it straight away and want to save it for later, you can let it cool down and keep it in the fridge until you do, but I have to say, the experience won’t be the same! The juiciness won’t be the same. Plus, that vegan vanilla ice cream melting is a sight not to be missed, right?

How Long Does This Vegan Blueberry Cobbler Keep For?

Now, if you’re wondering how to store your cobbler and how long does it keep for then I would say for about 4 to 5 days comfortably in the fridge. I have a confession to make; I love leftover desserts cold and straight out of the fridge. What about you? Give a try and let me know!
