Grandma Elizabeth's Cobbler

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

This is a family recipe that has been handed down through generations - Chambers to Harris to Walkush. And it's so good, it will make you forget your own name.




Here's the original recipe in Grandma's handwriting, referred to simply as "Apple Pie," this is actually a cobbler that can be made with any fruit. (I've shown it in the photos above with strawberries, peaches, and apples.) Grandma was known for writing down recipes from memory and then only writing down what she thought to be pertinent. For that reason, I have written below a detailed version of the recipe that includes all steps needed to make it. I have used strawberries in the example steps.


Grandma Elizabeth's Cobbler
2 cups sugar, divided
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup milk
1 1/2 sticks butter, divided
2 cups fruit of choice, peeled and chopped (apples, peaches, berries, etc.)
Cinnamon to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix 1 cup sugar and flour together in a bowl. Melt 1 stick butter and add to mixture. Add milk to mixture and stir until lumps are gone. Pour batter into greased 13 X 9 pan.
  2. Add chopped fruit over top of batter.


3. Add remaining 1 cup of sugar evenly over top of fruit.


4. Cube the remaining 1/2 stick of butter, place randomly over top of sugar, and sprinkle with cinnamon.


5. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.


Note:

If you use particularly sweet fruit, then use less than 1 cup of sugar to cover the chopped fruit in step 3 or you might go into sugar-shock when you taste the recipe. That, or you'll have your kids fighting you for it!

I hope you give this a try and that you enjoy it as much as my family does.
