Fresh Cherry Cobbler
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups fresh pitted sour cherries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the butter in a 9x13 inch baking dish, and place in the oven to melt while the oven is preheating. Remove as soon as butter has melted. Set aside.
  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, pour the batter into the pan over the butter. Do not stir.
  3. Place cherries in the mixing bowl, and gently toss with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour. Distribute the cherry mixture evenly over the batter without stirring.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm alone or topped with ice cream.
