Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler


"Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won't find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes."

I was skeptical of this recipe because, quite frankly, it looked a bit too easy. I am used to more complicated cobblers. I had some fresh strawberries in the refridgerator that I didn't want t...

I really don't know what more you could ask for in either a recipe or a dessert. Five stars for ease of preparation. Five stars for straightforward instructions and easily available ingredients....

very good for a quick and easy dessert. I used a mix of peaches and blueberries. However, I would recommend using more fruit than recommended-closer to three cups makes it fruiter and less dou...

I cannot believe that this only has 4 stars. Maybe a review by a pastry chef is in here somewhere; short of that level of concern for detail, I can't imagine not loving this. It was a total bree...

Doubled this and made it in a 9x13 with 4 cups of blueberries and about 1/2 c bing cherries. Yum! Added about 1/4 t nutmeg, because we like nutmeg with blueberries.

Been making this for ~15 years and it's great. Kind of surprised that Pam Anderson got a copyright on this recipe (2004); it's essentially a recipe that appeared in Cook's Illustrated magazine i...

I made this with peaches, and I thought it was great!! I just served it by itself instead of with ice cream because there is enough sugar in this alone. I will probably make it again sometime wi...
