How to Make a Berry Cobbler

by Jan Hoffman

You can make a delicious homemade fruit cobbler - its so easy!


  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 stick of margarine
  • Fruit - pint, quart, you choose!
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Go berry picking! These are wild blackberries we found growing on public property. This cobbler works fine with fresh, frozen, or canned fruit.

    Step 2

    I usually use margarine but I decided to try real butter tonight.

    Step 3

    Place it in the oven to melt as the oven is preheating to 350.

    Step 4

    "Look" the berries. I usually take a small handful and transfer them back & forth between hands as I look for bad spots, leaves, or bugs.

    Step 5


    Step 6

    Meanwhile, place one cup of flour in a bowl.

    Step 7

    Add one cup of sugar.

    Step 8

    And 2 teaspoons of Baking Powder.

    Step 9

    Mix dry ingredients.

    Step 10

    Add one cup of milk. (Easy recipe to remember!)

    Step 11

    Oh no!! Do NOT try real butter! This is not the desired outcome.

    Step 12

    Back to the tried & true. Margarine!

    Step 13

    Tongue Twister: "Betty Botter bought a bit of butter. But she said my butter's bitter. If I put it in my batter it will make my batter bitter but a bit of better butter will make my batter better!"

    Step 14

    Yes, this IS what I wanted!

    Step 15

    Pour the batter in the butter, not the butter in the batter. :). Just pour it all over, not dumping it all in one spot.

    Step 16

    It should look sorta like this.

    Step 17

    Add desired amount of berries by dropping the fruit on top. No stirring. If you like more bread, then don't use as much fruit. I have more berries than normal here...could have made two cobblers.

    Step 18

    Place in the preheated oven.

    Step 19

    For 30 minutes - give or take a little.

    Step 20

    Fresh cobbler! Serve hot with a scoop of vanilla icecream if you have it. If you don't, then just a cold glass of milk will do! :)

    Step 21

    Again, you can use fresh, frozen, or canned fruit. Cherries, blueberries, peaches, blackberries, mixed berries..... Enjoy!
