I was taught how to fix this easy cobbler by my boys' Grandmother. She was a wonderful "country cook" and I'm thankful she shared her extensive knowledge with me. This one is so easy to remember...it takes "one" of all the ingredients.
If fresh fruit isn't available, you can whip this up in no time flat with your choice of canned fruit. The first time I fixed one with fresh pears, Andy couldn't believe how good it tasted.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 quart of fruit* or 2 cans of fruit with syrup drained (add more or less to your taste)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt stick of butter in 9"X9" casserole dish in oven.
Mix flour, sugar, vanilla and milk in a small bowl.
When butter is melted and bubbly, pour fruit in dish and then pour batter on top. Do not mix!
Bake until top of cobbler is a very light brown and fruit is bubbly.
*We are fortunate to have a couple of cherry trees that produce quite a bit of fruit and the birds tend to ignore. Around Memorial Day weekend, cherries are ready to pick; stone (remove pits) and freeze. We use a vacuum sealer which guarantees what is frozen keeps a good taste.
When I use frozen cherries or pears, I will pour them, after they have thawed and been rinsed, into a small bowl and cover with approximately 1/4-1/2 cup sugar.
