A Recipe for Blueberry Streusel Cobbler


While I'm not much of a fan of fruit filled desserts (if it's not chocolate it's not worth it is my motto ;)) there's something about summertime that feels like you should bake with it. My mom found the recipe for this yummy cobbler last week and asked my sister and I to bake it for her. It was so quick and easy to whip up, and it turned out beautifully!

Juicy blueberries, lemon zest, sweetened condensed milk (my sister has an obsession with this stuff, she would put 4 cans if you let her...I don't let her :p) makes for a creamy filling, while butter, brown sugar, and nuts make for the perfect streusel topping. Oh and we can't forget the sauce... cooked blueberries infused with cinnamon & nutmeg...yum! Top this baby off with some vanilla ice cream and you have yourself a lovely picnic ready dessert!



Hope you guys & gals enjoy the rest of your summer! :)
