This is an old basic receipe from a cookbook my grandmother had that was written back in the 1920's. It's a very basic receipe meaning if you have the fruit on hand, the rest of the ingredients are probably on your shelf. Good served warm with ice cream or even with milk poured over.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in 8 x 8 cake pan.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients together into pan.
  3. Spoon sweetened fruit (to taste) over batter.
  4. Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes.
  5. (NOTE: if you don't have fresh fruit, you can use frozen but reduce milk to 1/2 cup).

This recipe is so simple, yet so wonderful! It's winter now and the usual cobbler fruits aren't in season, but I used apples, persimmons and oranges, mixed with some brown sugar and some of my homemade vanilla for a little punch. I also added some of the orange zest into the cobbler batter. The whole thing rose up over the fruit and engulfed it, making it a perfect warm dessert which we had with dark chocolate ice cream. Thanks for posting!
