I called this a fruit cobbler because you can use any fruit you like, fresh or frozen. If you use frozen you will need to thaw them before baking. I used peaches because that’s what I had, but you could use blackberries, cherries, apples, blueberries, whatever you prefer. I should mention how EASY this is! Even your children could make it. This would be a great recipe to get your children involved with cooking.
Fruit cobblers are a favorite of us Southerners. It’s one of the most common desserts and for very good reason…it’s simple to make and delicious! I am not a baker but find this Fruit Cobbler to be almost fool-proof.
Melt the butter and pour into a 2-quart baking dish.
Mix the flour, sugar, and milk in a bowl until well combined. You will still have lumps and this is fine, they will dissolve as it cooks.
Pour the flour mixture over the butter but do NOT stir.
Spread the fruit evenly over the batter but do NOT stir. I know it sounds crazy, but it works! The first time I made this cobbler I was convinced it was not going to be good. Trust me…it’s DELICIOUS!
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45-50 minutes or until it is golden brown.
Serve with whipped cream, ice cream, or just plain cobbler. My family all have their favorites, but ice cream has to be at the top of the list. Me? I prefer mine plain.
