So my grandma has a cherry tree in her backyard and when we were kids we used to climb onto the roof of her garage and pick them in the summer. I feel like we were always picking cherries, pitting them, and making something yummy with them. This is her recipe for cherry cobbler that I tried my hand at for the first time solo this weekend!
This is for a double batch (I needed to make mine in a 9x13 pan because I was feeding more people)
2 sticks butter or margarine
1 1/2cup milk
2 cup flour
2 cans cherries (undrained)
2 cups sugar
4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
Melt butter in baking dish
Make a batter of flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and milk
MIx batter with butter and pour into pan.
Pour fruit over this mixture.
Sprinkle 1 cup sugar over top
Bake at 350 until brown and bubbly about 50 min (The regular batch size says to bake for 30 min)
My grandma's house is why I am planning on planting apple and cherry trees in my yard this year. I want my kids to be able to pick fruit and enjoy baking just like I did as a kid!
