Easy Creeping Crust Cobbler

Easy Creeping Crust Cobbler created by Chef Itchy Monkey

This was given to me by my mom - she's made this for years, and it's really easy and really good! The name comes from the fact that the batter starts out underneath the fruit, and "creeps" up to surround the fruit as it's cooking! Great served with ice cream or whipped cream.

    Very easy recipe with simple, inexpensive ingredients. I used Black Berries for this Cobbler & turned out amazing. This is one recipe I will use often for many years to come.

    Made this last night with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, prob. a little more than 2 cups. Followed rest of recipe to a T. DH Loves loves loves this! I agree with other reviewers that it's a little sweet, but since he's so happy, who am I to tinker with success!!! Thanks for such an easy "always on hand ingredients" recipe. Update - I fixed this with fresh peaches and blackberries this time. I only warmed the peaches in the saucepan, with addition of a little cinnamon, nutmeg to season the peaches. After placing the peaches over the batter, I then sprinkled the blackberries over and pushed them down just a little. This way the berries didn't break up and disappear under the heavy peaches. Still remains uber-good!

    Made this with fresh sweet red cherries. I actually doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan. It was best served warm with a scoop of ice cream.

    This is now my favorite easy desert recipe. I make this normally with home grown blackberries but add 3-4 cups of fruit instead of 20. It is wonderful with peackes as well.

    I was in the mood for something warm, sweet and comforting on a cold, winter night... and this really hit the spot! I had one can of pears in syrup so I had improvise on the other fruits to make up the 2 cups of fruit in the recupe. I had some organic cranberries in the freezer so I threw about 1/2 c in the syrup (along with a split vanilla bean)as it warmed on the stove. I also peeled 3 granny smith apples and added those along with the pears at the last minute so they wouldn't get mushy. I added about 2 Tbs of sugar to the fruits just to take the tartness off the the cranberry mix. Then I had to substitute turbinado sugar for the white sugar in the batter since I ran out, but it was a terrific substitution. I thought the fruit might spill over the pan so I placed it on a baking sheet to catch any overflow but there was none. A terrific and easy recipe to mix and match fruit with. I served it with some vanilla bean ice cream... a keeper for sure!
