Tips and Tricks for One Cup Cobbler

  • I always just melt the butter in the baking dish while I’m mixing up the rest of the ingredients and the oven is warming, but you could melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove top if you wish BUT the butter does have to be melted.
  • I’ve always added the fruit in last and on top of the mixed ingredients BUT I don’t think it hurts if you mix the fruit in with the flour mix,.
  • If this isn’t sweet enough for you, you can always add more sugar or top with some powdered sugar.
  • The fruit is variable, feel free to add more or less according to your tastes. This recipe is relying upon a 15 oz can of fruit.

Been making this for many years. Always have to look it up, as I can't remember what liquid is in it. Today it is black cherry. Yum.

Is there a leavening agent with the flour? Maybe 2 teaspoons baking soda or baking powder? Other flour options, self rising and bisquick both have leavening…. Thanks!

The recipe calls for 1/4 cup butter in one place, and then a stick of butter in another. These are not the same. Which is it?

Other than that, it sounds like a quick/delicious dessert.

It's a quarter cup or half a stick. Left out "half".
