Cheap and Easy Fruit Cobbler Recipe.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Cobbler Instructions

2 sticks butter

2 Cup sugar

2 Cup Flour

4 tsp. baking powder

1 Cup Milk plus if need be

1 tsp. salt

4 Cups Sugared Fruit with juice (I used our raspberries)

Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in 9x13 pan in preheated oven. Combine remaining ingredients except fruit. Add more milk if needed. Pour batter in the center over the butter, make a well in the middle of batter with a spoon that has been dipped in butter in the pan. Pour fruit into a well.

If the fruit has too much juice you can add a little flour or corn starch to it no more than a tablespoon. You really need most of the juice for this recipe.

You can use canned fruit, use at least 2 cans. You can also mix fresh fruit with canned fruit.


Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes until golden brown.

Cheap and Easy Fruit Cobbler Recipe

This is a very easy dessert recipe. You don't have to be real careful about the amount of flour, sugar or milk. You use whatever milk you have buttermilk, skim milk or cream that you might need to use up.

I have used fresh fruit and canned fruit in it. Just so the fruit adds up to 4 cups. It is so good with ice cream or whipping cream. My husband puts milk on his just like he does with his bread pudding.

It can all be mixed by hand without the mixer.

CraftytotheCore, I use the raspberries because we have so many growing on our land and we also get blackberries and I have often made the cobbler from them. Thanks so much for your nice comment and for stopping by.

MysticMoonlight, Thank you and thanks so much for coming by. I appreciate it.

moonlake (author) from America on November 26, 2013:

Au fait, I'm glad your sister enjoys them. I wonder if your sister and my relative that lives in Wausau might know each other. I wouldn't be surprised Wausau is not that big. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Thanks for the pins, vote and followers.

CraftytotheCore on November 24, 2013:

Seriously Moonlake, have you written a recipe book? Every time I step in your Hubs, I want to eat my computer screen! LOL I would have never thought to use raspberries. You make them look extra delicious. And this would be so perfect for the holidays as well. Either Thanksgiving or Christmas, because of the beautiful presentation of the finished product. Well-done my friend.

MysticMoonlight on November 24, 2013:

This looks absolutely delicious! I've never had raspberry cobbler, must try! Voted up, across, and shared. Well done information.

C E Clark from North Texas on November 23, 2013:

This is an ideal desert for Thanksgiving or any time during chilly months. We're having freezing temperatures down here in Texas and an ice storm is forecast for tomorrow.

You make it so easy to follow the directions for a perfect cobbler. Pinning this to 'Awesome Hubpages,' voting it up again, and sharing again with my followers.

Just wanted to let you know that my sister in Wausau area really enjoys your articles and made a point of telling me so just last week.

Peggy W, It is easy but don't do what I did last time I made it and forget the sugar it's not so great without sugar!

Thanks for stopping by.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 23, 2013:

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on May 23, 2012:

I have a kilo of apples in the fridge, so I'm going to put this together for tonight. I wish I had blackberries instead, but you have to use what you have! Thanks for sharing your recipe. : )

The Dirt Farmer, I've never mad a dump cake but I have heard of them. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Jill Spencer from United States on May 11, 2012:

Will have to try these when it's berry picking (and then apple picking) time! The method reminds me a bit of "dump" cakes. The word "cobbler" definitely sounds better. (:

moonlake (author) from America on May 11, 2012:

Levertis Steele, My husband likes to pick berries and we have often made it from blackberries he has picked. We have also made it from raspberries we pick in the meadow here. I'm sure you will like this cobbler.

Levertis Steele from Southern Clime on May 11, 2012:

I enjoy fruit cobblers, and my favorites are peach and blackberry. Thanks for sharing the recipe and pictures. I must share them also.
