Easy Cobbler

1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup fruit
1.5 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk (I use skim)
pinch of salt
1/2 stick butter

Melt butter in the bottom of a casserole dish in microwave.
Combine other ingredients (except fruit).
Pour over melted butter, do not stir.
Drop fruit on top.
Do not stir.

It will look like this (above).
Bake at 325 for 1 hour.

It comes out like this.  

It is consumed like this:
It is divine and SO easy.  I used frozen blueberries.  The original recipe calls for a can of peaches, drained.  I think a combo of peaches and blueberries would be delish!  You can use fresh, frozen, or canned.  Beautiful.

*I doubled this recipe for our family of 5 to have leftovers.  I made it recently and it yielded just enough for our dessert not doubled.  When doubling, I only do 3/4 stick of butter.  A whole stick makes it too greasy.  Gee, I wonder why.

Enjoy the bounty of summer fruit!

Oh, cobbler. How I love thee.

I think this is my mom's recipe without the baking powder. I'm going to try the baking powder next time. I wonder if it makes it fluffier. Sometimes I even double the crust because that's my favorite part.

You know what goes good with this? BlueBell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.

oh my friend - we make this same recipe. It's SO yummy, isn't it? I eat WAY too much of it when I double it. Our blackberries are finally getting ripe and you can bet we'll make this a few times. :)

I use the same easy recipe, except using self rising flour (omit the baking powder). We love it with blackberries - canned or fresh. :) Your pictures make me want to make one now!
