Fruit Cobbler

This is a popular and frequently requested recipe with my friends and family. Be sure to follow the instructions or you’ll get mush instead of cobbler. I have made this with apples, peaches, apricots, blueberries, strawberries, and mixed berries. Peach cobbler is always the most popular!

Fruit Cobbler

Step 1 (Fruit):
4 cups fresh fruit of your choice
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
Mix together in a large saucepan. Bring to boil then simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool about 15 minutes, until warm.

Step 2 (Batter):
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups whole milk
In a mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together, then whisk in milk by hand until combined. Do not over-mix.

Step 3 (Assembly):
Preheat oven to 350. Place 8 tablespoons salted butter in a 13×9 pan. Melt in oven, but don’t burn. Pour batter directly on to the melted butter.

Using a slotted spoon, draining as much liquid as possible top batter evenly with fruit. The cobbler will be mush if you don’t drain off most of the liquid. Do not mix. The fruit will settle naturally into the batter while it bakes.

Step 4 (Streusel):
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter
In a small bowl, cut butter into dry ingredients. Sprinkle streusel topping evenly over batter and fruit.

Step 5 (Baking):
Bake at 350, 30-40 minutes. Test with a toothpick in the middle. You may see some damp crumbs of cake but not wet batter.
