Fruit Cobbler

Yumm! Yesterday, I needed to make a treat to share and I was undecided about what to do. Then, with the blustery day that was dawning, I decided that a berry cobbler would be a perfect treat to share.

It was still warm when I got to work and it smelled delicious. I had to dig in right away. Cobblers are very easy, especially if you have frozen fruit. I used a 4 berry mix - Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackberry and Red Raspberry, but you could use a single berry as well.

6 tbsp butter
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c milk
21 oz bag of frozen fruit (3 - 4 c of fruit)
1 tbsp sugar

Melt butter in your 9x13 baking dish (you can do this in your preheating oven if you like). Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the milk and stir until smooth. Pour batter over the melted butter in your baking dish. Scatter the fruit across the batter. Sprinkle with the 1 tbsp of sugar. Bake at 350 for 55 - 60 minutes - cobbler should be lightly browned and the fruit bubbling.

We had it plain, but you can add whipped cream or ice cream to take it to the next level.
