Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Our Fresh Cherry Cobbler is made with fresh cherries from your garden instead of canned cherries from the store. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth the extra effort when you taste the finished product.




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the butter in a 9×9-inch baking dish, and place in the oven to melt while the oven is preheating. Remove as soon as butter has melted, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and baking powder. Mix in the milk until well blended, then pour the batter into the pan over the butter. Do not stir.
  3. Rinse out the bowl from the batter, and dry. Place cherries into the bowl and toss with the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour. Distribute the cherry mixture evenly over the batter. Do not stir.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. A toothpick inserted into the cobber should come out clean.
