You may have everything you need for this Easy Fruit Cobbler in your kitchen right now!
When unloading groceries from Costco this week, I found a container of fresh blackberries that I did not intend to purchase. Fate (or a confused shopper) had placed them in my cart without my knowledge, and there was only one thing to do: Bake. Years ago, I bought a bag of store-brand frozen peaches. On this bag was a recipe for “Old Fashioned Peach Cake.” Luckily I noticed it and gave it a try because it has become a go-to dessert recipe, perfect for guests or potlucks or friendly gestures. This cobbler is super simple and very customizable. You can use frozen or fresh fruit in whatever combination appeals to you. Peach-Blueberry is my favorite. The fresh blackberries mentioned above worked great too, and pictured here is Peach-Cherry. You can’t go wrong!Print
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut butter into four pieces (optional, but speeds melting) and place in 13×9″ baking dish. Place dish in hot oven until butter is melted.
Meanwhile, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in milk.
Carefully remove pan from oven, and spread batter evenly over the melted butter. (Butter will ooze onto the top of the dough, which is a good thing.) Arrange fruit over the top, pressing it down slightly into the batter, and bake 60-75 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through in the center. Serve warm.
If you aren’t feeding a crowd, cut the recipe in half and use an 8″ square baking dish. (Cooking time will be 45-60 minutes.)
You can use all white flour and white sugar if you prefer.
If using frozen fruit, it will cook faster if you can thaw it at least slightly before baking. You can definitely use it right out of the freezer, but it will need to bake over an hour.
Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream on top!
