This recipe uses cherries, but I've used blackberries with good results. This is about the simplest cobbler recipe that you will find.

A wonderfull contrast of flavors and textures! Tart cherries and sauce topped with a buttery light crumbly cake with a sugary crunchy crust. This recipe is so easy and quick, keep a can of cherries in your cupboard and you can whip this up any time. I served this warm with vanila ice cream. Thanks Mysterygirl, this is one of those "secret" recipes you can pull out of your cupboard anytime you need a special desert.
