Serves 6 (serving size: about 1/2 cup cobbler and 1/3 cup ice cream)

You're probably familiar with the style of American cobblers that top sweetened fruit with a cake, biscuit, or other pastry dough. This one's a little different, and I like it better. Here, a pancake-like batter goes on the bottom of the pan and the fruit is strewn over the top. In the oven, the fruit bakes into the batter, melding the two perfectly.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Place butter in an 8-inch square metal baking pan; place pan in oven 3 minutes or until butter melts.

Step 2

While butter melts, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 6 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl; stir with a whisk until blended. Combine milk, lemon rind, and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring with a whisk just until moist.

Step 3

Pour batter over melted butter in pan (do not stir); top with blueberries. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until bubbly and crust is lightly browned. Serve with ice cream.
