Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler


This mixed berry cobbler works well with any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won't find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream or a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup milk

  • 2 cups of sliced fresh peaches or nectarines, or whole blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or a combination of fruits (or a 12-ounce package of frozen berries)

  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Adjust the oven rack to the upper-middle position.

  2. Put butter in an 8-inch square or 9-inch round pan; place in the oven until butter is melted. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside.

  3. Whisk flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in milk until a smooth batter forms. Pour batter into the prepared pan, then scatter fruit over batter. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is lightly browned and fruit bubbles, 50 to 60 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
