Grandma's Fruit Cobbler

In case you haven't noticed, or are a new reader (thanks to all of you BTW) of my little blog, I feature many of my Grandma's recipes.  Grandma's recipes represent love and comfort to my soul.  This recipe delivers nothing less than delicious, buttery comfort that feels like grandma's hug. 

Aside from the amazing flavor, I love the versatility of this recipe.  You can use fresh, frozen or canned fruit.  You can use just about any kind of fruit.  The ingredients are simple and I always have them on hand.  Preparation is as easy as mixing everything together and pouring it on top of melted butter in the pan. 

This weekend, I made the cobbler with plums and apples.  The result was delicious.  I peeled and cored the apples and left the skin on the plums to give it some nice color and tartness.  I've eaten this cobbler with blackberries, but peaches are my favorite.  If you have some extra fruit lying around, and want to feel the comfort of Grandma's hug, give this recipe a try!

Grandma's Fruit Cobbler
Serves about 6 (or 1 if you don't feel like sharing)

3/4 C. Flour (I used freshly ground whole wheat pastry flour)
3/4 C. Milk
1 C. Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 C. Fruit, fresh or canned (I used apples and plums in the above picture)
1/2 C. Butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix flour, milk, sugar, baking powder, & salt just until blended.  Stir in fruit.  Melt butter and pour into 9"x12" pan.  Pour batter into pan, over butter.  Bake at 350 for approx. 45 minutes to an hour, or until top is golden brown and crispy.  Serve warm or cold.  Enjoy!
