Busy Day Cobbler
1/4 c Butter (or margarine,
-if you must)
1/2 c Sugar
2/3 c Milk
1 c Flour
2 t Baking powder
13 oz Tart cherries
-(one normal U.S. can)
2 T Sugar (to sweeten
-and thicken; use less
-or more as needed)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Drain cherries, saving liquid.
Cream butter and sugar together.
Alternately add in milk and sifted dry
ingredients. Pour into a buttered
and floured casserole dish. Top evenly
Sprinkle sugar on top and cover with saved liquid/juice.
Bake 45-50 minutes.
The batter will expand and surround
the cherries so they're evenly mixed
throughout the cobbler.
The juice will congeal to fruity and pudding-like.
Serve warm topped with cream,
milk or ice cream. (I prefer milk). If any
is left, it's good cold, too.
* As the name implies,
this is a very quick recipe to make.
Depending on how soft the butter
is to start with, or whether or if you use a food
processor (I don't, but it should work)
this recipe takes only 5 to 10
minutes to mix.
* You can use any unsweetened canned
fruit for this recipe. You can also
use frozen fruit, by thawing
it before adding to the pan.
Berries or peaches are standard substitutes.
