Yankee Cobbler

I never knew this could be so easy. We had dinner yesterday at Granny's, and we got the master herself to share her cobbler recipe.

This is one of the most incredible desserts known to mankind. You can use store bought fruit, but fresh peaches would be ideal (just add a simple syrup to replace the syrup you would get from canned peaches)

Yankee Cobbler

Melt a stick of butter in a 9x13 glass baking pan.

Mix together the following ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt

This will create a light batter. Drop all of the batter in large blobs into the melted butter in the baking dish.
Pour 3/4 cup of milk over the batter in the pan. Do not mix, just leave it alone.

Add one large can (or jar of home-canned) fruit, including the syrup, evenly over the batter. I strongly suggest peaches.

Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.

Serve in individual serving dishes while still warm. To make it the most awesome thing in the world, add a scoop of home-made ice cream.
