One Minute Blueberry Cobbler

Last week was roasting here in Michigan. I had to take poor Ginny on walks either really early in the morning or late at night or she would die of exhaustion. I really think she is part Husky or some other snow dog. The snow doesn't bother her a bit, but if the temperature gets over 75 she just about dies when we take our neighborhood walk. Jim thinks this means we should move to Alaska... it just confirms to me that she is lucky to live in Michigan. 

The heat has died somewhat in Michigan down to the 70s compared to the roasting temperatures we had last week. Even though the temps are down sometimes you just don't feel like turning on the oven or spending lots of time in the kitchen in the summer.

So this recipe is for everyone out there that wants to avoid the kitchen in the summer...but still wants a yummy summer dessert. It it down and dirty fast, a little messy and oh so yummy.

This recipe is for one... I just doubled everything to make two. I thought it would be a little rude to eat it in front of Jim without giving him any... and I ofcoarse need to test everything that goes on the blog. 


1/4 cup flour
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp milk
2 tsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Mix together the following ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well mixed. Add the milk and melted butter, and mix with a fork until just combined.

Place the blueberries in the bottom of a large (6-8 oz) microwave safe ramekin.

Spoon batter over the blueberries.

Important: Place on top of a microwave safe plate, because the blueberries will boil over. As I said this is a fast and messy recipe :) Microwave for 30 seconds on high. Then check cobbler. Microwave another 30 seconds, and you are done.

See why you need the plate....

We topped ours with whipped cream, but you could also do ice cream. I'm sure it would be good plain as well.

Lastly eat and enjoy!
