Mom's Fruit Cobbler

1 stick of butter
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
4 cups of fruit I use one can of sliced peaches,
{but that is because I like the doughy cake part way better than the fruit}

Place butter in and 9 x 13 baking dish, set in your preheating oven {Preheat to 375 degrees} until butter is melted. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder,salt, and milk… Blend well. Pour batter over the melted butter and spread fruit evenly over the batter. You basically have 3 layers… butter, batter, fruit…
Bake for 40 minutes.

This is very similar to my cobbler recipe, but you use twice the flour and sugar. I also love the cake part better than the fruit!

I make blueberry, apple, etc. And one tip - if you want more apple flavor, use apple juice for all or part of your liquid!

The batter rises and the fruit sinks while baking... The top turns a golden brown... delish

I made it tonight and it was a HUGE hit! It was so easy and delicious.

Thanks, Jenny--I have been trying to find a peach cobbler recipe that would make my husband swoon for 6 years--this one did it!
