Blueberry & Banana Cobbler

I had a ton of blueberries left over from the blueberry scones and wanted to use them in a quick dessert last night. Cobbler is a really easy dish to make and you can use any fruit you like. Along with the blueberries, I also had some ripe bananas so I threw in some as well. I used small ceramic cups since I just wanted to make two individual servings. 

These next few steps don't have to be exact, it's hard to screw it up!

Add your fruit to the cups, I filled them to about 1/2 the container.
Mix in 2 tablespoons sugar + 1 teaspoon flour + 1/4 cup topping

I made a larger batch of the topping to keep in the freezer for next time so you could half/quarter this recipe if you only wanted a small amount.

1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
8 tbs cold butter (1 stick)

Add the dry ingredients together and mix. Cut up the cold butter into 1/2 pieces, add to dry ingredients and mix. I used my handheld mixer with the beater attachments. Mix until the butter is into small pieces.  

Add the topping over your fruit, I like to make sure there are some pieces of butter on top so it melts across the top.

I baked them for about 15 minutes @ 350 degrees. I wanted the top extra crispy so I turned on the broiler for a couple of minutes.. be sure to keep an eye on them because they can burn easily.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Simple, fresh & delicious! The blueberries were amazing but I think I would leave out the banana next time since it was kinda mushy. This would be amazing with peaches, strawberries, raspberries, or maybe apples if they were in small enough pieces.

I stored the extra topping in a ziplock in the freezer for the next time we have a craving or need a last minute dessert. 

What's your favorite summer-time dessert?
