This cobbler isn't what first comes to mind when you think of cobbler. There is no pie crust the fruit is baked in a cakey type batter.
It's buttery with the just the right sweetness, super simple and best of all you can do it with any fruit you like. Use whatever is fresh for the season.
If you're in a pinch you can even use frozen fruit, just defrost it first. After adding your sugar to the fruit, if more than 1/4 cup juice accumulates don't use it all. Use about 1/4 cup otherwise your cobbler won't set correctly.
This is a recipe that comes from the south, I don't even remember whom I got it from but I've been making it for years! It's always a hit, as is it's simplicity to make.
Top it with a little scoop of ice cream, a little whipped cream or on it's own, either way I think you'll love it.
I personally like mine for breakfast with a great cup of coffee...yum
I will warn you though, the corners on this are just as coveted as the brownie corners, these get crisp and buttery yummy!
Simple fruit cobbler
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups sliced peaches or any other fruit you'd like to use
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9x13 baking dish add the butter and place in the oven to melt.
Peel and slice your peaches, add the cinnamon and 2 Tb of your sugar stir to combine and let set.
Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
To this mixture add in milk and vanilla, stir to combine.
Pour this mixture into the pan with the melted butter and then top with your fruit mixture and the juices that have accumulated while sitting.
