Who doesn’t love blueberries? Besides having incredible color, blueberries taste fabulous and are often available year-round. I’ve used them in all sorts of desserts and sweet treats, including a unique cocktail.
Growing up, I lived just up the road from a large blueberry patch. It was in someone’s backyard and they would allow folks to go pick blueberries whenever you’d like. Payment was made into a tin coffee can via the honor system. Those were simplier times. Blueberry picking and eating was a favorite summer activity. That’s why today I’ve rounded up My Best Blueberry Recipes. I’m sure you’ll find something special to add to your repertoire. If you’re blueberry-obsessed like I am, you’ll probably want to make all of these blueberry recipes many times.
My Best Blueberry Recipes
I was inspired to create this blueberry recipe when I found a gorgeous shortcake pan. (If you’re also a fan of specialty cakes, you might want to take a look at my post on Specialty Cakes to Bake at Home here.) Of course, these shortcakes are loaded with blueberries. They’re finished off with more blueberries and a lemon glaze, plus a sprinkling of confectioners’ sugar and lemon zest.

Here’s another blueberry recipe that brings together the delightfully refreshing flavors of lemon and blueberries. It’s a fun recipe to experiment with in the middle of winter the way I did. Given the popularity of whoopie pies, though, you’ll probably want to bake them whenever you get the chance.
This is a quick bread, so it doesn’t take long to whip up. The batter is jam-packed with fresh blueberries highlighted with lemon. As you can tell, I love the combination of blueberries and lemon.

These cuties are tasty and simple to put together. You just pipe a cream cheese filling into store-bought mini phyllo pastry shells and top with a spoonful of blueberry sauce. I have a feeling this professional-looking dessert will become one of your entertaining go-to’s.
Are you wanting something sweet to accompany the cup of coffee you have in the morning or middle of the afternoon? You can whip up these muffins easily with ingredients you’re likely to have on hand. I often bake these in the summer when blueberries are in season where I live.
I got this blueberry recipe with the fun name from my grandma. Boy bait, which dates back to the 1920s, is similar to coffee cake or buckle and is pretty straightforward: batter, berries, and crumb topping. You can serve it for breakfast, brunch, an afternoon snack, or even dessert. Boys AND girls of every age will love it!

Don’t let the name of this unique dessert throw you! To make a grunt, you simply steam small sweet dumplings in a shallow bowl of fruit, in this case, wild blueberries. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, the sweet-tart flavor is intense.

Have you ever wondered what to do with leftover pancakes? Why not combine them with blueberries, sliced almonds, and custard for an unbeatable breakfast casserole? Topped with real maple syrup and real whipped cream, this is a blueberry recipe your family will be begging you to make.
Yes! You read that title correctly. Zucchini bread batter is layered with blueberry crisp, baked, and then served warm with vanilla ice cream. I had this marvelous mashup for the first time in Kennebunkport, Maine and couldn’t wait to recreate the recipe at home during my Year of the Skillet.
This is another lovely blueberry recipe from my Year of the Skillet. I used store-bought pie dough when I baked these during the summer, but you are welcome to fix your favorite crust.

These darling pies are a cinch to make. You simply spoon homemade blueberry filling into small jars, cover them with store-bought crust cut to fit, sprinkle with coarse sugar, and bake. The hard part will be waiting for the pies to cool a bit before taking a bite.
