Recipe by Bradshaw Brood
This cobbler is so very simple, and so very delicious. I am writing this recipe with peaches, however you can use any variety of canned fruit. Hope you enjoy.

Last summer, I had this recipe written out on a post-it note and stuck to the interior of one of my kitchen cabinets for easy access for the whole season... It's incredibly easy and fast, though I found our tastes required a few changes to the amounts. I'm giving a 4 star review because although this is my "go to" fast fruit recipe, I no longer make it as written. Changes that work for us: this is kind of a big one, but the batter amount doesn't quite work for a 9x13 pan for me. Other "easy cobbler" recipes on RZ use the same amount for a (very full) 9x9 pan; I found that making 1 1/2 times the recipe filled the 9x13. With the added batter, the melted butter amount is okay, though still maybe a bit much for us; without more batter, it was noticeably greasy. I do tend to use fresh fruit instead of canned, when it's available. I also cut back on sugar by 1/4 cup unless using very tart fruit, in which case I mix that reserved 1/4 cup in with the chopped fruit. I also like to put a splash of extract (vanilla, almond, orange or lemon) in the batter for some depth. I also had problems with sogginess the first time I did use canned fruit and added the syrup to the top of the batter. Overall, though, it's a fine starter recipe for a fast dessert, and once you get the amounts fine-tuned for your family's tastes, it's a keeper.
