- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup milk

- 2 eggs
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, & grease a 2 1/2 qt baking dish.

- Pour hot fruit into prepared baking dish & top with batter.
- Bake 30-40 minutes, until golden brown.

This recipe just speaks volumes about Autumn. I halved the recipe very successfully. I used peach and plum for my cobbler and served it with cream hot - so wonderful !!!!!!!!!
Amazing! I love the fact that on Zaar I can reduce recipes to make the desired number of servings for a smaller family. I cut the recipe in half, used fresh pears, frozen cranberries and not having a can of apricot halves, I peeled and sliced a large juicy nectarine. As the recipe called for orange zest, I also added the juice of 1 orange. The fruit produced plenty of juices for the cobbler. A combination of Splenda and white sugar was used with the fruit. The topping did require a touch more milk. This was served warm with a scoop of no sugar added vanilla ice cream. This will be repeated in my house many times over. Thanks for a great recipe.
I made this with frozen cranberries and increased the sugar to 1 cup and the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon, this is easy and truly wonderful, thank you Syd!
