QUICK-COBBLER - An extremely quick cherry cobbler dessert
This recipe came from a PTA recipe collection from my Aunt's
school a number of years ago. It's not a true, classic cob-
bler, but I think it's better. My favorite dessert!
INGREDIENTS (serves 6)
1/4 cup butter (or margarine, if you must)
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
13 oz tart cherries (one normal U.S. can)
2 Tbsp sugar to sweeten and thicken (use less or more as

You can use any unsweetened canned fruit for this recipe.
You can also use frozen fruit, by thawing it before adding
to the pan. Berries or peaches are standard substitutes.
Yesterday I made one with crushed pineapple. I used brown,
rather than white sugar atop the fruit. It tasted very much
like pineapple upside down cake (though the appearance was a
Difficulty: easy, I've been making this since I was about 8
or 9. Time: 5 minutes preparation, 45 minutes cooking.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
