Favorite Restaurant Dessert Recipe

Preparation time: 20-25 minutes. Serves 15-18 depending on portion size.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 2 2/3 cups Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk - this is the secret)
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 3 pounds of fresh blueberries
  • Streusel Topping (recipe below)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl and mix well
  • Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, or a fork or by rubbing it in with your fingers until it is crumbly
  • Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and mix well
  • Stir in the lemon peel
  • Stir in the blueberries and pour the mixture into a 9 X 13 inch baking pan
  • Sprinkle Streusel Topping over the batter
  • Bake 1 hour and 40 minutes or until golden brown
  • Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick near the center of the cobbler. If it comes out clean, the blueberry cobbler is done

Tip: To prevent the Streusel Topping from getting too dark, cover the pan loosely with foil during the final 15 minutes of baking.
