Great simple recipe. But, I would say that it is not appropriate for sweeter or riper fruits. I used fresh blueberries and thought the batter was just a little too sweet to suit them. Now, if I had added a tart peach to the mix, it would have been perfect. Also, I saw lots of folks complain about mushiness. I believe the problem is that they aren't cooking the cobbler long enough. Mine-amounts as recipe states-took about 70 minutes before it was properly bubbling fruit and browned batter. Don't take it out too early or it certainly will be mush. Mine was too sweet to pair with ice cream, but, went great with whipped cream. I would think this would be a five star if you stuck with peaches/plums/pears or even less-ripe strawberries.
Update: used same recipe with peaches and blueberries this time. It had to cook about 90 minutes to get to the right consistency. Although the taste was still great, it did not store as well as the blueberry-only version.
