Fruit Cobbler

Recipe by  

"My son took first place in a baking contest with this one. Serve warm or cold plain, with ice cream or whipped cream. When I use apples, a sprinkle of cinnamon or apple pie spice makes a nice touch. In place of peaches, try using apples or plums."

Thumbs up! Good recipe. Very easy and can be made with ingredients on hand. Best made with fresh fruit. I was a little hesitant just spooning the fruit on top of the batter and not having a topping to place over the fruit, but soon realized the topping comes up over the top of the fruit almost encasing it. I did as another baker did and added a tablespoon of orange juice and sprinkled just a little bit of cinnamon on top of the fruit (peaches & plums) and then sprinkled some brown sugar on top once the fruit was spooned over the batter and it turned out fantastic. Thank you! Excellent recipe.

There was no taste to the apples and the consistancy of "cake" was rather unappealing.

Absolutely my favorite dessert recipe I have found thus far on this site. I was really afraid...never having made cobbler before and trying it out for the first time with company over for dinner. It was fabulous. Company loved it and asked for the recipe. I didn't have any peaches, but used apples instead...all I had on hand. Thank you for the post....delicious.

I used fresh blueberries instead of peaches with great success. Good recipe. I will definitely make it again.

This was so easy and good. I just recommend adding additional fruit. I used fresh peaches (peeled and sliced) but I wish I had almost doubled it.

This was the hit of the party. It was gone way before the birthday cake! I really wanted to use only apples, but I wasn't sure what type would work best, so I used what I had on hand which was only 2 granny smith. I had a lot of fresh plums I recently purchased, so I mixed them with the apples along with a dash of cinnamon, a tablespoon of orange juice, and I don't know why, but a squirt of lemon extract. I spooned over the batter, and sprinkled brown sugar on top. Everyone LOVED it! I will definately make this one again and again!!! Thank you for sharing this receipe.

I haven't ever made cobbler before, but I had some blueberries and 2 nectarines that needed to go...YUM, I'm not at all sorry that I decided to try this out. Even with my goofy fruit combo, it was still delish! Thanks Lenna!!

This recipe is so easy! I love cinnamon, so I put a tsp. in the batter. And I also tossed my apples in a little apple juice, cinnamon and walnuts, then used all of the mixture, for more moistness. I will definitely make this again, and will try other fruit as well.
