Recipe: Is it a blueberry cake or a cobbler? Either way, it’s delicious

I call this dish a blueberry cake, but the chefs at America’s Test Kitchen name it “Easy Blueberry Cobbler.” No matter what you dub it, it is delicious and very easy to prepare. Instead of the expected flour, salt, baking soda, milk, butter and some kind of sugar, the batter has been simplified by using fewer components — self-rising flour, sweetened condensed milk, milk and melted butter. Easy, indeed.

Serve it warm accompanied by ice cream. If you have leftovers, it’s also tempting at room temperature for a breakfast or midday treat.
