floating cherry cobbler

My Mom and Grandma have been making this easy cobbler recipe for years.  Last night I needed a quick and easy dessert recipe to take to a dinner party.  I knew right away that this was the recipe I was going to finally try.  I only had to buy one ingredient for this recipe.  If that doesn't say easy, I don't know what does!!

You will need....

1 stick of butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup milk

1 can of fruit (any kind)

1/2-3/4 cup sugar (opt.)

1 tsp. vanilla

Cinnamon

Be sure to buy these kind of cherries, and not cherry pie filling like I did!!
The only ingredient I had to buy, and I bought the wrong thing! Can I blame that on pregnancy brain?? Fortunately, my grandma had an extra can of cherries that I could borrow!!

Melt margarine in a pan large enough for the cobbler.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, milk and vanilla.  Pour the batter over the melted margarine.
Pour the can of fruit (do not drain) over the batter and sprinkle with sugar (optional).
Bake 30-40 minutes (or until the crust is golden brown) at 350 and the crust will magically float to the top.  
The six of us at our dinner party ate every last bite of the cobbler.  
This dessert is so good and super easy to make!!

Enjoy!!

I'll have to try this since Jonathan is a cherry lover. I don't think I can adequately describe how much the guy loves cherries!

I am NOT a cobbler fan. I just can't do my fruit at a warm temperature. But my family LOVES them, so this just might be easy enough to give it a try....for them, of course. :-)
