Cobbler update.

I was eating some of my delicious cobbler last night and realized that I should have clarified my recipe a little more.

The recipe I posted is for Hubby’s favorite kind of cobbler. It is very “doughy”, like a lot of restaurants in our area serve. If you like a less doughy cobbler, you can use more fruit (like Annie Jones did) or cut the batter.

Sometimes, when I want a more fruity cobbler, I will use the same amount of fruit, but will cut the batter recipe in half.

So, if you decide to make this easy cobbler, please modify to suit your tastes. I know you will, but just wanted to let you know about the “doughy” issue, so no one would be disappointed if they made this.

Silly, maybe, but I want everyone to love their food. :-)

To be honest, I was skeptical about the dough/batter because there was no baking powder or egg in it. But it turned out very good. To me, it kind of had the texture of a bread pudding.

Cobbler is so many different things to different people. To me a cobbler is like a rectangular pie, with both a top and a bottom pastry crust. That's the way my mom and both grandmas made "cobbler". Your recipe reminded me a lot of the dump cake recipes, only more dense.

Whatever anyone calls it, it's good!

I agree with you that cobbler is different to different people.

My mom made cobbler by mixing little "dumplings" in with the fruit, then putting a lattice crust on top. So, our cobblers never had a bottom crust.

My MIL prefers cobbler with top and bottom crust, but to me that is a pie, no matter what shape it is. LOL!

I didn't make cobbler because I could never make it as good as my mom, but with my sister's recipe, it is just fine. And super easy! (And makes Hubby super happy!)

Whatever you want to call it, I am glad you enjoyed it!

Haven't tried it yet, but look forward to as soon as I can get my hands on some good peaches...

Pam said...

Truthfully, I like doughy better than fruity. I have this recipe and I definately like the dough.

SonyaAnn said...

Hell my fat @$$ won't say no, no matter what you call it!

Frances said...

Hi, McVal, hope you enjoy it!

Frances said...

Hi, Pam. Thanks for coming to see me.

Frances said...

SonyaAnn, I am use you could make it less fattening, but leaving out the butter and cutting the batter down. And I think it would be just as yummy.

I just read through the recipe and it sounds delish! I like a doughy cobbler; that is how my Mom always made it. YUM! :)

Frances said...

Hi, A.Marie, I am so glad you came to see me! If you make my recipe, I sure hope you like it!

Pam said...

Woo hoo! I have to make that cobbler. It looks delicious and doughy works great! I'm a new follower and really like your blog. You seem like a great fun couple and hubby's hair-do is to die for! Can't wait to see what's next!

Hi, Pam, I am so glad you came to join our slight insanity!

SonyaAnn said...

Hi! So do you have plans for the weekend? I think we are just going to relax. We were nuts last weekend because of the graduation party. I love when it is boring here. It doesn't happen very often though!

Frances said...

Hi, SonyaAnn, no plans for the weekend, yet. I would like to have no plans at all, as we are expecting temps over 100 this weekend. I want to stay inside.

I sent you and email early.

Now really Frances do think I have the skills to make this? Or can I just have a scoop?

Frances said...

Marilyn, I am pretty sure you have the skills to dump fruit and stir batter. I think this is a pretty foolproof recipe.
