How to Make a Fresh Cherry Cobbler

I mentioned earlier this week we’ve had a lot of company lately. This past weekend we decided to have an old fashioned fish fry, which was a lot of fun. We had spicy battered flounder, shrimp, creamy grits, collard greens and pitchers of cold beer. We had a great time. We’re really lucky that both berries and cherries can be found in abundance at the farmers market right now so I decided to make a fresh cherry cobbler. This cobbler is really easy to make and can be made with berries or cherries. It’s perfect for a big family get together or a Memorial Day picnic. Bonus, you probably already have the ingredients you need in the pantry and refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease the bottom of a 9-inch baking dish with butter.

Place approximately 3 cups of pitted fresh cherries covering the bottom of the baking dish. I usually cut the cherries in half or quarters.

In a medium bowl mix together: 1 cup of all purpose flour, 1 cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt.

Add to the mixture 1 cup of milk

and 1 stick of melted butter.

 Whisk together until all ingredients have been incorporated.

Pour the mixture over the cherries.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until top is bubbling and golden brown. Lightly dust with sugar if desired. Allow to cool a bit as cherry filling will be hot. Serve warm.   It’s awesome with ice cream.

I know right, can you believe it’s that easy? The top is a little spongy like cake and has the flavor of a sugar cookie. It was a big hit with my family and I hope it will be with yours as well.

    Totally reminds me of the cobbler my Grandmother Geneva made for us so many years at the lake house. What I would give right now for a bowl of cobbler and ice cream. You’ve inspired me to try this CoCo! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂 Bwg ~~~
