Recipe by Mama's Kitchen (Hope)
Fast and easy. Very unusual topping made with bread- but you can't tell! Use whatever fruit you would like. My family says this is THE best cobbler EVER! I like it bc it is made with things that I always have on hand and can be thrown together in minutes yet it looks pretty enough to serve company.

If you are a pudding person like I am then this is to die for and so easy too !!! The fruits I chose to use were yellow peaches and strawberries and I used fruit bread as I had it on hand.I did halve the sugar as my bread was sweet. My DD has a part time job at a bakery so we always have excess bread so many many thanks for posting such a satisfying and delicious way to use it up !!
- 1 cup sugar, adjust to your taste
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup margarine, melted
- 5 slices white bread, crusts removed and cut into strips
- 3 cups fruit, approx, SEE NOTE
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon (optional) or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cardamom (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix first 4 ingredients together and set aside.
- Place drained fruit in a buttered 8x8 pan and top with bread strips.
- Pour sugar mixture over bread and fruit and sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown.
- Great topped with ice cream or whipped cream on top.
- Note: I dont usually measure the fruit, I just fill the bottom of the pan. Frozen fruit that has been partially defrosted works great as does soft fresh fruit- harder fruits such as apples or pears should be precooked until softened for best results. Drained canned fruit works great for this too. One large can (29 oz) is a perfect amount.
