Cherry Cobbler--for sweet cherries
But this was good and not too sweet! I'm always looking for recipes for sweet cherries because we get good local crops of them! This is what I'm taking for my coffee clutch with my Nana today. Enjoy!
Sweet Cherry Cobbler
1 stick (1/2 C) of butter
1 C all purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 C sugar
1 C milk
1/2 t cinnamon (or to your taste)
pinch of nutmeg
2.5 C sweet cherries, cleaned and pitted
1/2 C white sugar
1 T all purpose flour
I use a glass 9 x 13 pan for this recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 but put pan with butter stick in it in the oven to melt while oven is heating up (watch that it doesn't brown, usually takes me about 5 minutes)
When the butter has melted, bring back out of the oven.
Before you go further---remember this isn't to be mixed in the pan, it is to be layered so be sure not to stir things up in the glass pan!
To assemble the cobbler
Stir the cup of flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and spices. Mix in the milk and stir well. Pour evenly over the butter WITHOUT STIRRING! This will be the second layer of your cobbler (the first is your butter)
Mix cherries with remaining 1/2 c sugar and 1 T flour. Evenly scoop over batter. DON"T STIR IT!
Bake 50-60 minutes until golden brown!
