I started following a new blog "The Weary Cook."  What a great title and a nice little dessert for the Thanksgiving sweet tooth.

Too Easy Fruit Cobbler
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
All you need is frozen or fresh fruit and a few kitchen staples to whip up this delicious and EASY fruit cobbler!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 10
  • ½ c. butter
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. turbinado (raw) sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 c. milk
  • about 24 oz. of your choice of fruit, fresh or frozen
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut butter into four pieces (optional, but speeds melting) and place in 13x9" baking dish. Place dish in hot oven until butter is melted.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in milk.
  4. Carefully remove pan from oven, and spread batter evenly over the melted butter. (Butter will ooze onto the top of the dough, which is a good thing.) Arrange fruit over the top, pressing it down slightly into the batter, and bake 60-75 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through in the center. Serve warm.
Weary Chef's Notes:
If you aren't feeding a crowd, cut the recipe in half and use an 8" square baking dish. (Cooking time will be 45-60 minutes.)
You can use all white flour and white sugar if you prefer.
If using frozen fruit, it will cook faster if you can thaw it at least slightly before baking. You can definitely use it right out of the freezer, but it will need to bake over an hour.
Don't forget the vanilla ice cream on top!
