Can you add frozen blueberries to cake mix?
Yes, you can add frozen blueberries to the cake mix! This is a great option to incorporate berries into an easy dessert recipe without having to have fresh fruit on hand.
Just toss the blueberries in a bit of flour before you toss them into the batter. They will thaw as the cobbler bakes.
Does blueberry cobbler freeze well?
One frequent question about easy blueberry cobbler recipes is whether the cobbler freezes well.
In general, cobbler freezes quite nicely as long as it is stored in an airtight container. This will prevent freezer burn and keep the cobbler moist.
When you are ready to enjoy the cobbler, simply thaw it overnight in the fridge or reheat it in the oven.
If you have leftover cobbler, it is best to freeze it within a day or two of baking. Otherwise, the cobbler may start to dry out and will not be as enjoyable.
Therefore, freezing is a great option if you want to enjoy this easy blueberry cobbler recipe all year round.

Yes! One of the best things about this easy recipe is that it works with just about any type of cake mix. You can use a yellow cake mix, white cake mix, lemon cake mix, or even spice cake mix for a festive twist on the classic cobbler.
Can I use different fresh berries for this recipe?
Of course, you can use any type of fresh or frozen fruit you like. If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding a mixture of berries for a colorful and flavor-packed perfect dessert.
So next time you’re in a pinch and need to make a quick dessert, reach for a box of dry cake mix and some frozen fruit. With this simple kitchen hack, you’ll be able to whip up a delicious cobbler in no time!

- One stick of unsalted butter
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
- Place the berries in the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish
- Soften butter in large mixing bowl in the microwave for a few seconds. You don't want to completely melt it.

- Scrape the cake mixture (or use your fingers to sprinkle it) on top of the berries in the pan.
- Place the dish in the oven (middle rack) and bake 28-minutes or until lightly browned on top.
- Let your blueberry cobbler cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. (Tastes amazing with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top)
