Fresh Fruit Cobbler

This is one of my favorite go-to desserts because it is quick and delicious.  It is equally good with any seasonal fresh fruit or berries as well as frozen and canned fruit.   Today I am making it with fresh sour cherries, but also love it with canned peaches.


Adjust your oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Put your butter (4 Tablespoons -1/2 stick) into an 8″ square or 9″ round pan and set in oven to melt.

Whisk together:

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Add milk and whisk together until just incorporated:

  • 3/4 cup milk


When butter has melted remove pan from oven.  Pour batter into pan and arrange fruit over batter.  Sprinkle with sugar:

  • 2 cups fruit or berries (not sweetened or thickened)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar


Bake until batter browns, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool slightly and serve.


I hope you enjoy this easy to make fruit cobbler that can be enjoyed all year.  It is yummy alone, but also delicious with ice cream and/or whipped topping.
