Grandma Mary's Magic Cobbler

We like to double this and make in a 9x13 pan, to serve 8. It's delicious with most soft fruits- strawberry/rhubarb, canned pears, blueberries, etc. When it's browned on top, it's done- it will set up as it cools. Serve hot, about 15 minutes after you take it out of the oven, with Cool Whip, ice cream, or whipped cream. The batter turns to a "boiled dumpling" kind of consistency- it's my favorite cobbler!

Personal tip: eat the leftovers for breakfast, cold. It's delicious!

Serves 4. (Really. No one wants to eat less than a quarter of the pan!)

Grandma Mary's Magic Cobbler

Melt 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine in a baking dish, to cover bottom and sides. Make a thin batter of:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
Pinch of salt

Mix and pour into buttered dish. Over batter, spread 4 cups of peaches (fresh or canned). Bake at 375 degrees about 45 minutes. The batter will rise through the fruit and form a delicious brown crust. Cherries, apricots, or blackberries may be used.
