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 ! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Tasted great and easy to make. I think the reviewers whose didn't turn out right may have failed to use self rising flour. A little tip, if you don't have self rising flour you can use regular flour if you add 1.5 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt per cup of flour. Read More
