Recipe by FlemishMinx
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Combine in a large saucepan the cherries, 3/4 cup sugar, tapioca and water.
  • Let stand at least one hour and up to several hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook and stir till slightly thickened and bubbly, about 5 to 10 minutes at a good boil.
  • Add 1 TBS butter and set aside.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put the 1/2 cup butter in a 9 X 13-inch glass baking dish and put the dish in the preheating oven.
  • While the butter is melting, mix the batter by combining flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk.
  • When the butter is completely melted, remove the pan and pour the batter into the melted butter.
  • The batter will immediately begin to cook, which is what you want.
  • Carefully spoon the cherry mixture evenly over the batter.
  • Return dish to oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until batter sets and is browned.
  • As the cobbler cooks, the batter will begin to rise up around the cherry mixture.
  • Serve warm (or at room temperature) with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
