the sauce.

Busy Day Cobbler

Serving Size  : 6

1/4   c  butter (or margarine,-if you must)
1/2   c  sugar
2/3   c  milk
1  c  flour
2  tsp.  baking powder
13  oz tart cherries-(one normal u.s. can)
2 tbs.  sugar (to sweeten -and thicken -- use less-or more as  needed)

  Preheat oven to 350 ° F.  Drain cherries, saving liquid.

 Cream butter and sugar together.  Alternately add in milk and sifted dry
 ingredients.  Pour into a buttered and floured casserole dish.  Top evenly
 with cherries.  Sprinkle sugar on top and cover with saved liquid/juice.
 Bake 45-50 minutes.

The batter will expand and surround the cherries so they're evenly mixed throughout the cobbler.  The juice will congeal to fruity and pudding-like.
Serve warm topped with cream, milk or ice cream.  (I prefer milk).  If any is left, it's good cold, too.

Depending on how soft the butter is to start with,  this recipe takes only 5 to 10 minutes to mix.

  *  You can use any unsweetened canned fruit for this recipe.  You can also use frozen fruit, by thawing it before adding to the pan. Berries or peaches are standard substitutes. Using pineapple gives you the taste of pineapple upside down cake although it won't look like one:)

Fresh Berry Cobbler Cake

1 pint fresh berries (blueberries,blackberries, raspberries and or
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbs. butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbs. cornstarch
1 cup cold water
Additional berries (optional)

Makes 6 servings

Preheat oven to 375° F. Place berries in 9x9-inch baking pan; set aside. Combine flour,1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until coarse crumbs form. Stir in milk. Spoon over berries. Combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cornstarch in small bowl.

Berry cobbler

 (Serves 6)

1/2 cup  sugar (for sprinkling)
4 cups  berries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup  sugar (for the batter)
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp.   salt
1/2 cup   milk
1/4 cup   butter (softened)

 Preheat oven to 375 ° F.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of  sugar  on  the  berries,  and place them in the bottom of a 2-quart baking dish.
Combine  the  remaining  dry  ingredients  (flour,sugar, baking powder and salt).
Add the milk and softened butter, and beat well.
Spoon the batter over the berries.  Sprinkle  some nutmeg on top.
Bake for about 45 minutes.


You can use pretty well any type of berry for the  base. A favorite of mine is a combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

The base of this turns out to be a bit thin and liquid.  If you strain the juice from the fruit, add a couple of tablespoons of flour to the juice, and then pour the  juice  over the fruit in the baking dish, the base will be semi firm.

You do not need to sprinkle the full 1/2 cup of sugar on the berries; with sweeter berries, much less will often be needed.

If you would like a sweeter, candy like batter, try adding more sugar to the batter.  I wouldn't recommend putting more than 1 1/4 cups of sugar into the batter, though- the  crust of the batter will be very candy like, but the center of the batter will not properly bake if you do.
