Quick Cobbler

This is another one of my mom’s old recipes. This works great for any fruit that’s really juicy; apples are not a good choice (I like to make it with peaches in the summer; if you’re a fan of blueberry or raspberry cobbler, this would be great for those fruits, too).

It’s so easy to throw together, and it tastes best if you eat it right away! Of course, delicious with ice cream on top, too.

1/2 cup butter or margarine (and even though I’m completely devoted to butter, I use margarine in this recipe)
1 c flour
1 c sugar
1 c milk
2 tsp baking powder (I once forgot this ingredient…don’t do that. It wasn’t pretty.)
4 c any fruit, sliced and undrained

Melt butter/margarine to frying point. Then, in a bowl, combine flour, sugar, milk and baking powder into a smooth batter. Pour hot butter/margarine in a 13×9 baking dish. Pour batter over the butter/margarine and add the fruit. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

before baking - it totally doesn't matter that the batter/margarine are uneven in the pan. please note that i didn't have nearly 4 cups of peaches...probably more like 3.

finished! and if you are actually following the directions and using enough fruit, you'll see it poking up out of the crust after it's baked.
