Campfire Blueberry Cobbler
Fresh blueberries simmer with butter and sugar, then get a simple biscuit topping in this easy campfire cobbler recipe.
What to buy: For best results, use pastry flour.
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) salted butter
- 2 dry pints fresh blueberries, picked over and washed
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup unbleached pastry flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
1Prepare a grill or campfire for medium heat, using 20 to 24 charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal.
2Place a cast iron skillet on the heat and add 1/2 cup (1 stick) of the butter. When it’s melted, add the blueberries and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Cook until the mixture bubbles and a light syrup forms, about 5-8 minutes.
3Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar. Using a fork, 2 knives, or your clean finger, cut in the remaining 1/4 cup of butter until the mixture looks crumbly. Stir in the buttermilk, mixing quickly until the dough just comes together. It will be wet and sticky.
4Stir the blueberry mixture, then drop the dough on top in approximately 1/4-cup lumps.
5Cover the skillet with foil and cook until the filling is bubbly, the cobbler top is firm and rounded, and a toothpick inserted in the topping comes out clean, about 30-40 minutes. Serve warm.
