This is one of the simplest cobbler recipes I've ever used. It also makes one of the loveliest cobblers I've ever tasted. And, it's because this recipe doesn't use a biscuit dough, i.e. where you cut the butter into the flour and make it crumbly. You see, I have never cared for biscuit crust cobblers.
In this version, the butter is put in the baking dish and melted in the oven. So when the smooth batter gets poured over the hot butter, it puffs up and creates a lovely crunchy edge when it's baked. You can see that in the photos. It reminds me a little of the way a Dutch Pancake puffs.
It can be served warm or room temperature with a dollop of yogurt or vanilla ice cream. And, if you put the left-overs (should there be such a thing) in the refrigerator, the next day it tastes just as wonderful cold. I've used this recipe to make a peach cobbler. Oh yes, that was yum too.
I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and it's called Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler. Instead of using an 8- or 9-inch pan as suggested in the recipe, I baked it in a glass pie plate. You can find this delicious recipe by clicking here.
Today I'm joining Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday.
Wishing you a beautiful Labour Day Monday,
