learned this as a child , & taught it to mine . The only difference is that we also use 1 cup milk (batter will be thin but thats fine). You can adapt the recipe to fit your pan merely by increasing in equal amts. , but we do not ever use more than 1 stick of butter or margarine . you can use any fruit you choose , but if using canned , drain some of the liquid if there's a lot . My favorite is peach ....I sometimes sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top of that one . This cobbler bakes up into a great cake-like dessert that's wonderful served warm with a scoop of ice cream on top !

it seems although I followed the recipe to a T my cobbler looks completely different. The blackberries all stayed on top. No other reviews stated same issues......crossing my fingers that it tastes yummy...well sadly this did not turn out to be the case. I am a habitual recipe changer but this time I followed it exactly even though everything inside was saying no!! What went wrong? The mixture ended up being a doughy brick.

Good and EASY cobbler. I didn't stray from the recipe, but I did think it was a little dry and will add a bit more milk (about a cup) to the batter in the future. I did sprinkle some turbinado sugar on the top. We enjoyed this simple recipe.

Ecellent recipe. Do not skimp on the butter, as it browns and creates a delicious crust on top. I also use this recipe for a peach cobbler.

This recipe is TOO EASY for something that turns out SO TASTY! It was great the 1st night served warm w/ my husband's homemade vanilla bean ice cream, and just as delicious the next day when I kept stealing bites of it cold from the frig! Thanks for the recipe...a true keeper!

After a looong day of picking berries this is by far the easiest cobbler recipe to throw together! This is so yummy, we have to pick enough to make two. They just don't last in our house!! I have 3 requests today to make cobbler and this recipe is the one I have used for years and years and people just LOVE it! Mouth watering yummy!
