Are you looking for a super easy fruit cobbler recipe? Well, just stop looking around and keep reading! This simple recipe is great for fresh or frozen berries, as well as a variety of other fruits. My mom has made cobbler my whole life using this recipe.
When I first saw fruit cobblers that weren’t made this way, I remember thinking “That’s NOT cobbler.” I started making it as soon as I was married because it’s so easy and it’s a great dessert to serve to guests, take to potlucks, or even send to someone who needs food – and really, who doesn’t need cobbler? It’s healthy because it has fruit. True story. Having an easy fruit cobbler recipe that also helps you stay healthy by increasing your fruit intake? Yes please!
The batter is super quick and easy to whip up while your butter melts in the pan in your oven. Then you just pour it over, no stirring! Yes, no stirring. After that, you can just drop your desired fruit on top, whatever you want. NO STIRRING (except the batter part). I’ve used:
- apples (chopped)
I have not used cantaloupe or watermelon because…well, it just wouldn’t end well. And those deserve to be eaten alone in their glory or with a small smackeral of salt.
I’ve made this fruit cobbler recipe in the past for a dairy-free/egg-free friend using coconut oil instead of butter and almond milk instead of dairy milk. There is no egg, so it’s naturally egg free. You could probably make it gluten free by using a gluten-free flour, but I haven’t tried that…so, don’t shoot me if it doesn’t work.
Also, if you use coconut oil, don’t quite use 1/2 cup…maybe only 1/3 cup? 1/2 cup tends to make the cobbler a bit oily.
This doubles very well and fits in a 9×13, but I usually bake as-stated in an 8-9 inch square dish.
