Easy Sweet Cherry Cobbler Recipe
with Fresh or Frozen Cherries
A basic cherry cobbler is fruit tossed with sugar and baked under a batter, pastry, or biscuit crust. This cobbler adds some nuance with spices and citrus zest. It is delicious, and easy to make!
Here's what you'll need for the fruit: Fresh or frozen cherries Sugar Salt Lemon or lime juice Vanilla Mace or nutmeg Butter
The butter is what makes the cobbler nice and juicy. And the fat also carries flavor. If you want a less juicy cobbler, toss the fruit with a tablespoon of flour or cornstarch.
Here's what you'll need for the batter: Flour Sugar Baking powder Baking soda Salt Milk Buttermilk Vanilla
Pit the cherries and toss them with sugar, salt, vanilla, citrus juice, and spices. Pack into a 2-quart baker and dot the top with bits of butter.
Mix all the batter ingredients together and pour over the fruit. As the cobbler bakes, the batter will flow down and mix with the fruit. It's such a comforting dessert!
You'll know your cobbler is done when it is deeply golden brown on top and around the sides (easy to see if you use a glass dish). Any fruit peeking through the batter will be bubbling.
