Teacup cobblers

Last week when I wrote about my new Teacupcake baking molds, I got some very helpful (and inspiring!) reader comments. One idea was to bake cupcakes in regular paper liners and then serve them in teacups (how easy!), and another comment was about actually baking in teacups. I'd forgotten that could be done as well, so I pulled out some glass teacups and punch cups from the thrift store and decided to bake cobblers.

I really like how the cobblers turned out, and here's mine halfway through eating! The teacups made serving and portion control super simple, and the fresh blueberries I picked at my parents' house last weekend cooked up beautifully -- and so yummy!

We had some family visiting so I served them these cobblers, and here was the happy result! If you're interested in baking these for yourself, here's the recipe.

Easy Blueberry Cobblers

1 stick margarine, melted
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar, divided
1 cup skim milk
2 cups fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray six glass teacups/punch cups with cooking spray. Bruise the fruit slightly with a fork or spoon, add 1/4 cup of the sugar, mix well and set aside. Mix remaining sugar with flour. Add milk and melted margarine and blend. Spoon batter among the teacups about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Then spoon blueberries with sugar and juices atop each teacup. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cobbler is just beginning to brown. (Note: I had a little batter and blueberries left over, but no more glass teacups, so I believe this recipe would make 6-8 cobblers, depending upon the size of the teacups and how full you prefer to make them.) Enjoy!


  1. Those look delicious! What a great idea, yum. Joanie
    ps: The Coweta Guide is FANTASTIC - what a great resource, we love it! Thanks for a great guide.

  2. This is a wonderful idea! You could make them cupcakes too and frost them right in the glass. I wonder what the details are on what kind of glass can take the heat and what can't?

  3. Teacup cobblers are a great idea and they look yummy. I have a recipe for individual microwave choc cakes that would work in teacups just as well as ramekins. Thanks for the idea.

  4. Yum. They look delicious, and I have so many teacups. I would think stoneware would work, too, but not porcelain.

  5. Love this and I have a freezer full of blueberries!!

  6. Love this idea - it's perfect for an upcoming tea party! One simple question, don't laugh, but do you put the cups on a baking sheet or something? I never baked in a cup!

  7. Oh Jocelyne, that's something I definitely should have mentioned: YES, I did place all the cups on a baking sheet! And I highly recommend using both hands when you remove it from the oven! ;)

  8. Mmmm..these look great! And I clearly see where you stand on the voting of cobbler types! ;-)

    Thanks for sharing - what a grand idea.


  9. Thanks for the recipe - yummy!

  10. The cobbler looks so good and even better in the teacups.

  11. Thank you for answering my question Angela! I will post on my blog how it turns out.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
