Family Recipe Friday... Dutch Oven Cobbler

This is a basic simple cobbler recipe, that can be baked over hot coals [which I have done on campouts] or in the oven. It's a fast easy cobbler. And all you do is mix, and dump, the ingredients into the Dutch oven, and bake!



Ingredients:
  • 1 stick butter, 1/4 cup
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 to 5 cups fruit
  • 1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350°. Melt the butter in Dutch oven.
Mix together the flour, milk, 1 cup sugar, and baking powder; pour over melted butter
Put fruit (your choice), approx 4-5 cups over mixture
Sprinkle 1 cup sugar over top
Bake in 350° oven until golden brown (usually 30-35 minutes depending on oven temp.)
Serve while warm [especially good with a scoop of ice-cream, or as the old folks used to do with heavy cream poured over!].
When you place this in the oven, the fruit is on top... when you take it out... the crust is over the top! The kids love seeing this transformation!

Enjoy!
