This is not really MY recipe. My sister gave it to me and she hates to cook. A recipe has to be super easy for her to want to make it. (She is a good cook, she just hates doing it. LOL!) I vary this recipe, depending on how much fruit I am using and how doughy I want it. The one above was made using the following:
- 3 cups sliced peaches. (you can use fresh, frozen or even canned)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 stick butter
Put the peaches in a baking dish. Mix flour, sugar and milk until blended. Melt butter and add to batter. Pour over fruit. Put in oven preheated to 350 and bake for one hour. (If the dough does not seem done enough, I just put it back in the oven until it is as done as I want.)
I have used less fruit and decrease the amount of batter and I have used less batter for the same amount of fruit. Just whatever I am in the mood for. Just be sure that you use equal parts of flour, sugar and milk.
My sister's recipe called for dotting the butter on the fruit before pouring the batter on, but my hairdresser told me that he just melts it and mixes it into the batter, so I decided to try that. It worked great.
So there is my super easy cobbler recipe and it works for most fruits. But it does not work with commercial pie filling. I tried that once and the batter did not sink under the fruit...just sat on top. It tasted good, but looked odd.
