This recipe is one of the simplest I have found.  Its referred to as a “Cup of Cobbler” recipe.

The difference in this recipe from the original is that if you use canned fruit, you use the juice of the canned fruit as your liquid.  In place of the milk, you use powdered milk.  It will take a little bit longer to mix it all together but it does work.  Bake the cobbler as usual.

You can add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the recipe if you should want a hint of cinnamon.

When serving the cobbler, consider adding a scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream.


1-cup milk
1-cup sugar
1-cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1-cup fresh fruit

Stir together the dry ingredients, then add the milk.
Add the fruit (if canned fruit, you can use the juice, but MUST use with powdered milk (1 cup))
Melt one stick of butter (not margarine) in a 9×9 pan
Pour mixture in pan
Bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes
Let sit for at least 4 hours before eating (to settle the cobbler)
