Easy Cherry Cobbler
Today I want to share one of our family’s favorite recipes! Oh, my goodness. I often wonder if I love to cook because I love to eat, or if I love to eat because I love to cook so much! Sort of a chicken-or-the-egg kind of thing.
Anyway. I discovered this variation of my much beloved peach cobbler recipe when I was thinking of a quick and easy dessert for the upcoming July 4th holiday. Of course, I make mine gluten-free, so that’s the recipe I will share. But it’s easy to convert back to standard flour. Just use 1-1/3 cup of self-rising and omit the baking powder, soda and salt.
- 1 stick butter
- 1-1/3 cup gluten-free flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- dash salt
- 1-1/3 cup sugar
- 1-1/3 cup milk/buttermilk ( I use 1/2 milk, 1/2 buttermilk)
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in 9x13-inch pan. Mix dry ingredients in mixing bowl and add milk with wire whisk. Pour into prepared pan.
- Then I spoon the cherry pie filling on top. (We've touched on the perfectionist thing before, but I like to make sure every serving is going to have roughly the same amount of cherries! ...oh dear, it's hopeless!) Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown on top. Enjoy plain or a la mode!
- *OK. Here's my secret: I use the whisk to stir the butter into the flour and milk mixture a bit to incorporate before I add the cherries. I do this right in the pan. Just kind of disperses the butter amongst the entire dish.*
Now, get ready for the fireworks! Enjoy!
