Cherry Cobbler

My husband loves cobbler: peach cobbler, berry cobbler, cherry cobbler. He could probably go all Bubba from Forrest Gump with types of cobbler. I have struggled for a long time trying to find the perfect cobbler recipe and when I stumbled across this one in a spice catalog of all places, I immediately gave it a try. That one was peach and then I tried it again with cherry and the result was amazing. Perfect cherry cobbler. I am so excited that I finally found a recipe that worked. Blueberry might be next. I don’t tend to make super sweet fillings for desserts so I cut the fruit sugar in half for this recipe and it worked well, but if you like the super sweet fruit, up it a bit.

Cherry Cobbler

Cherry Cobbler
3 cups of cherrys, stemmed, pitted and halved
1 cup of sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter
3/4 c all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 2 quart baking pan
  2. Mix the cherries and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a mixing bowl and set aside
  3. Either melt the butter directly in the baking pan or pour melted butter in the baking pan and set aside
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the other 1/2 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon.
  5. Stir milk and vanilla in to the flour mixture and mix well
  6. Pour batter in to baking pan on top of the butter, do not stir
  7. Gently pour cherries (and their juice) over the batter, trying to get them as even as possible without disrupting too much of the batter/butter mixture.
  8. Bake for 45-60 minutes until fruit is bubbly and top is golden brown.
  9. Let cool a bit and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

    Cobbler is delicious! I’m intrigued by the pie-like crust you have on top. I might give this a go when we get back from camping, we’re sure to have tons of blackberries ready for such things by then.

    Blackberries would be delicious. It doesn’t really taste like pie crust. It’s cobblery, just a little thick.

    so is this a “miracle pie” type thing where the batter rises to the top then bakes?


    Amy Reply:

    I think so! I don’t know how it works, but it tastes delicious.
