This recipe uses frozen cherries, so it's great to make all year round! This is a sweet cobbler you can reduce the sugar slightly for a less sweeter taste. Although I have never tried it, I imagine that you could also make this using frozen or fresh blueberries.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 400 degrees (oven rack to second-lowest position).
  2. Butter a 9-inch glass baking dish.

Four cups of cherries was not enough so I added frozen strawberries to pie plate. Poured cooked cherries over the strawberries. Instead of making the topping, I thawed a pie crust and butter both sides and randomly placed over the fruit. After baking for 25 minutes, I sprinkled a little sugar over the crust and baked for 5-7 minutes longer. Family loved it.

I added vanilla and some oats to the topping... seemed a bit dry when I first ate it... that's cause I added the oats... when it cooled off it was much better. The kids and hubby loved it so I am giving it a 4 star. Great for breakfast!

Good, basic recipe. I had use up 2 bags of frozen cherries that had thawed by the time I'd gotten home from the store. I didn't have enough, so added 2+ cups of frozen peaches to the mix. My guess is, as long as you have between 4-6 cups of any frozen fruit, this will work. I cut the sugar by half and replaced it with Splenda. And I used whole wheat flour, which is the only stuff I've got. I might try adding a little bit of quick oats to the topping, as we ate it for breakfast this morning. Baked it in a 7.5X11" glass pan.
