Are you often looking for a homemade dessert that is quick & easy, and oh so tasty? Something that can be changed up a bit depending on what fruit you decide to use? Then you’ll definitely want to try this Cake Cobber. It has the fruit like a cobbler, but the crust is more like a cake. And Oh So Yummy!
I make this dessert regularly and everybody loves it. It is a great dessert that can be put into the oven while cooking dinner and it will be ready to enjoy by the time dinner is over. And I am often asked for the recipe after I have made it for others. So I decided to share this with you today.
I think you’ll really love this recipe. I have made this with fresh fruit, fresh-frozen fruit, or a can of fruit pie filling. So keep that in mind when you are making your own. Also, just a quick heads up, this recipe doesn’t double well. I don’t know why, but it has run over every time that I have tried to double it, even if I use a much larger dish. If you want it to serve more than 4-8 depending on serving size, then I suggest making separate dishes.
I have also made this recipe for many years with one can of fruit pie filling. It can be easily changed up using different pie filling flavors; apple, cherry, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, etc. The recipe featured today is with Blackberry. Because my husband has been requesting it.
But I have also made it with fresh fruit or fresh frozen fruit. We now have our own blackberries bush in our yard, so we love using our fresh berries when we have them. It works well with fresh blueberries too, maybe even fresh rasberries.
Don’t forget to come back to let me know how much you love it.
1 stick butter
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
¼ tsp salt
¾ cup milk
2 cups fresh berries OR 1 can of fruit pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In an 8X8 glass dish melt the stick of butter.
In a separate dish, while the butter is melting, mix together the dry ingredients; flour, sugar, baking powder, salt.
When the butter is completely melted stir in the dry ingredients, add the milk, then mix until smooth.
Place the fruit in the middle, on top but DO NOT stir in.
Bake on 350 degrees for 1 hour or until browned
Once the butter is melted make sure you add the dry ingredients and milk into the hot dish and then mix well.
Please don’t make the mistake that I have made and try to double this recipe. It will run over.
Depending on serving size, this will feed 6-8
This is best served warm (add a little vanilla ice cream ~ delish)
