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!

  • 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!

Can you use canned pie filling over fresh fruit? Or could frozen fruit be used?
