Recipe by SaffronMeSilly
This recipe has been in my family for 3 generations, and its absolutely delicious and sinful. It is a basic fruit cobbler, so the peaches can be substituted for blackberries, cherries, or anything else. (I forgot to include the 1/2 cup milk in my original post, thanks to the reviewers who spotted the mistake!)

This came out great just as written! I thought the recipe had a lot of sugar, but that made the syrup from the fruit nice and chewy, like candy. I used canned cherries and was uncertain how much of the syrup to use. I used individual ramekins and spooned the cherries evenly over the batter. Then I spooned the syrup over until the batter was pretty much covered. I probably only used about half the syrup in the can. I think peaches and other fruits normally have far less syrup in their cans if I recall. Well anyway, my cobblers were not at all dry and they were great. Just wish comfort food wasn't so unhealthy!
