Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won't find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes."

Doubled this and made it in a 9x13 with 4 cups of blueberries and about 1/2 c bing cherries. Yum! Added about 1/4 t nutmeg, because we like nutmeg with blueberries.

I made this with peaches, and I thought it was great!! I just served it by itself instead of with ice cream because there is enough sugar in this alone. I will probably make it again sometime wi...

I have made other cobblers that turned out delicious. In this one the ratio of butter to milk to flour seemed wrong. I followed directions anyways but the cobbler was soggy and greasy. It was ...

Easy and very delicious. I used nectarines and freshly pitted cherries, doubled the recipe for a 9x13 dish. It's a "cakey" cobbler, not a "biscuit" cobbler. I added nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla...
