This recipe is plenty for a 9x13 pan. Tonight I made about 2/3 of the recipe for an oval dish that will serve the two of us nicely today and tomorrow, unless I have some for breakfast.
Put your fruit of choice in the bottom of the pan ... remove pits of course and cut into good-sized chunks. I'll confess and admit that I used canned peaches tonight. Sorry, I needed cobbler and we had *nothing* fresh in the house. This was my substitute 4th of July pie!
3/4 Cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup milk
1 Cup flour
Mix the topping together and drop by spoonfuls onto the fruit. Mix 1/2 C sugar and 1 Tablespoon cornstarch and sprinkle over the top. Then pour over 1/4 Cup warm water. It might look strange, but trust me .. you'll get the best syrupy fruity flavor at the bottom and a lovely crunchy top ... but see that spot where you can see the dry sugar, I should have mixed that in - it was still there when I took it out of the oven.
Bake for 45 minutes at 375F / 190C.
The hole in the middle, that was me checking to see if it was done .. tonight it took over an hour to bake but I only just realized that I didn't have the oven hot enough because, yep, I did the math wrong again.
Word of caution: allow to cool ... the hot fruit can cause terrible burns - trust me!
I don't know why, but our cobbler is always served upside down. Is yours?
This is lovely topped with vanilla ice cream, but completely unnecessary in my opinion. Happy 4th everyone!
