My grandmother's peach cobbler is always a hit, never any leftovers. I have used blueberries, blackberries, and cherries as well. Any fruit will do.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup melted butter
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 cans any type fruit (or about the same volume of fresh or frozen fruit*If you use fresh or frozen, be sure to sweeten it)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Drain the fruit, and place in an ungreased casserole dish.
- Mix together all other ingredients in mixing bowl until smooth.
- Spoon evenly over fruit.
- Do not stir.
- Bake uncovered at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve hot by itself or a la mode!
I know no other way of saying this, but this did not turn out at all. The cobbler batter was SO thin it poured around the fruit and never rose or firmed up. Even with baking 40 minutes past the bake time. My baking powder was brand new so I know that was not expired. I really wanted this to work. I used some blackberries and raspberries and 2 chopped apples. It smelled wonderful but unfortunately I could not serve it.
Honest to goodness, I was going to post my memaw's cobbler which she called "German Cobbler" when I found your memaws is just the same except for the order they are placed! Her recipe calls for the butter to be melted first and put in pan, mix batter and pour into pan and top with 1 can of fruit (not drained) or berries. I just made this and after it cooks, the berries go to the bottom and the batter rises to the top. Today I made with dewberries and sprinkled 1 tbsp of sugar on top of fresh fruit before baking. I've made once before with 1 can apple pie filling and only added the 1 cup sugar to the batter. So good and so easy!
I loved this cobbler. I tried it when I had my now-In-Laws over for the first time. The batter on the top turned out almost cake-like. I was asked for the recipe and SO glad it turned out. I used 2 cans of blueberry pie filliing for the fruit. It was great with a little ice cream.
