Summer cobblers are the best, aren’t they? They’re easy to make with the berries and other fruits of the season, and they’re a perfect ice cream delivery system. They’re one of the first things I consider when I need a dessert for a summer gathering.

When it comes to berry season, I’m admittedly in favor of as many blueberries as possible. For this Blueberry Cobbler with Ginger Biscuits, you can keep things simple with an easy blueberry filling topped with a fairly basic biscuit topping that comes together quickly.

That biscuit topping has one thing going for it that makes it just a bit different. Adding a hint of ginger to the biscuit dough gives this cobbler a little zing of flavor that goes oh-so well with all those blueberries. It’s not enough to stand out. In fact, those who sample it may not quite be able to put their finger on what’s different from a standard cobbler topping.

Add to that ginger the bit of fresh lemon juice in the filling, and you’ve got a simple way to make your blueberry cobbler anything but ordinary. The flavor focus will still be on all those blueberries, where it rightfully should be. But you’ll enhance it even more with those added ingredients.

For the topping:

  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces

To make the filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

To make the topping:

  1. It seems to me there is not better combination of ingredients than the one you have listed; not to mention the ice cream serving suggestion: Paradise it is !

  2. We made this other day and it was delicious beyond belief. Crystallized ginger was chopped and sprinkled on top of the biscuits. It was awesome. The ginger permeated the blueberries but was not overpowering at all.
