  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 quart fruit, sweetened (peaches, cherries, blackberries, etc.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. Melt the butter in a baking pan by placing it in the preheating oven.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk to make the batter.
  4. Once the butter has melted and the pan is hot, pour the batter evenly over the melted butter in the pan.
  5. Arrange the sweetened fruit on top of the batter in the pan. Do not stir; let the batter rise to the top as it bakes and absorbs the flavor of the fruit.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour, or until the cobbler is golden brown and the fruit is bubbly.
  7. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.


  1. Can I use fresh or canned fruit for this recipe?
    • Yes, you can use either fresh or canned fruit. Just make sure the fruit is sweetened before adding it to the cobbler.
  2. Can I use a different type of flour?
    • While all-purpose flour is recommended for this recipe, you can experiment with alternative flours like whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour blends. However, it may slightly alter the texture of the cobbler.
  3. Can I reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe?
    • Yes, you can adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste preferences or dietary restrictions. Keep in mind that reducing the sugar may affect the sweetness of the cobbler.
  4. Can I add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter?
    • Absolutely! Feel free to add spices to the batter to enhance the flavor of the cobbler. Cinnamon or nutmeg would be excellent choices, especially if you’re using apples or peaches.
  5. Can I make this cobbler ahead of time?
    • While this cobbler is best served warm, you can prepare it in advance and reheat it in the oven before serving. However, the texture may change slightly upon reheating.
  6. Can I use a different type of fat instead of butter or margarine?
    • Butter or margarine provides the best flavor for this cobbler, but you can experiment with other fats like coconut oil or vegetable shortening if preferred.
  7. How should I store leftovers?
    • Store any leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave before serving.
  8. Can I double the recipe for a larger crowd?
    • Yes, you can easily double the ingredients and bake the cobbler in a larger baking dish to serve more people. Just adjust the baking time as needed.


  1. For a twist on the classic recipe, try mixing different fruits together, such as peaches and raspberries, for a unique flavor combination.
  2. To ensure the cobbler bakes evenly, spread the batter and fruit mixture evenly in the baking pan.
  3. Serve the cobbler warm for the best taste and texture, and don’t forget to top it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  4. If you prefer a crispier topping, you can sprinkle a little extra sugar on top of the batter before adding the fruit and baking.
