Week 37: Blueberry Cobbler (Oregon)
Today I baked a blueberry cobbler, and it turned out wonderful! The topping is crispy and goes well with the sweet blueberries.
Oregon is well known for its blueberry industry, in which it consistently produces delicious and sweet berries.
Oregon is, after all, one of the top blueberry producers in the United States, although blueberry farms across the state vary greatly in size and production.
In 2016, Oregon produced 116.1 million pounds worth of blueberries.
The word cobbler was coined in 1859 due to the topping having the visual appearance of a "cobbled" stone pathway.

3 cups blueberries
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. In a baking dish, distribute the cubes of butter around the pan. In a bowl, mix the blueberries, sugar, and lemon zest. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and milk until it forms a thick paste.
Pour the blueberry mixture over the butter and drizzle the topping over the blueberries. Bake for 35 minutes, and serve warm with ice cream.
