Blueberry Cobbler – Breakfast at Wiscasset Woods

Wiscasset Wood’s Blueberry Cobbler

We didn’t introduce this recipe until our second season, but it became an instant success. You can also make it with peaches or a peach/raspberry mix but blueberry is hands down the most popular. This recipe was adapted from How to Bake Everything by Mark Bittman. We cut the sugar almost in half to make it more of a breakfast dish, less sugar lets the blueberry flavor shine.

Interesting factoid: Cobbler was so named because it looks like a cobbled street.

Ingredients

1 stick of cold butter
6 cups of blueberries (we use Wyman frozen blueberries)
1 1/8 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbls lemon juice (if making peach cobbler omit the lemon and add cinnamon instead)

Directions

Heat oven to 375, lightly grease a square baking pan. Pour blueberries into bottom of baking pan and sprinkle 1/8 cup of sugar over the top. Sprinkel the lemon juice over the berries as well (if making peach cobbler sprinkle a little cinnamon over the peaches).

In a food processor add the flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into ¼ inch bits and add as well. Pulse the food processor until the mixture is just combined so you can still see bits of butter. Pour ingredients into a bowl and beat in the eggs and vanilla by hand.

Drop the mixture on top of the berries using the two spoon method. Cover the top as evenly as possible in dallops leaving small gaps. Don’t spread the batter out.

Bake for 35 – 45 minutes. The cobbler is done when the topping turns golden brown and the blueberries are bubbling. 

A big thanks to Ann Doucette, one of our wonderful cooks at Wiscasset Woods Lodge, for helping us perfect our recipes.

Breakfast at Wiscasset Woods, Pet Friendly

Famous for our Free, Hot Breakfast

Our customers continue to rave about our hot breakfast.

If you’re looking for the cookie cutter experience of a chain motel – keep on driving. Wiscasset Woods Lodge is one of a kind and from our perspective – hard to beat. There’s not a thing we would change. Affordable accomodations, effective heat and AC, free parking, free wifi, comfortable bed, in room refrigerator, clean units – this has them all but the bonus is what sets this apart…. congenial staff, charming rooms, a trail through the woods loaded with birds, trees, and wildflowers, and BREAKFAST!!!!!!!! The free homecooked breakfast that comes as part of the cost is worthy of a 5* restaurant. We’ll be back next time we’re passing through.

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay. Wasn’t sure what to expect – one description I read was the rooms are “rustic” which we have found can sometimes mean uncomfortable or not tidy. Our room (second floor) was attractive, comfortable, cozy and exceptionally clean. We, too, loved the delicious, something-new-every-day breakfasts. But, the friendly owners and staff are what is best! Thanks for all of your helpful suggestions and for treating us like family.
