EASY FRUIT COBBLER RECIPE

Easy Fruit Cobbler - CopyI have made this recipe for years using different canned fruit pie fillings. You can also make it with fresh fruit but if you use fresh fruit, I would put the fruit on and boil it with a little sugar and water to make like a filling before putting it into the recipe.

Easy Fruit Cobbler
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 stick melted butter
1 can fruit pie filling of your choice
Mix first 4 ingredients and pour into a baking dish. Drop pie filling by spoonfuls into the filling. Bake at 400 degrees until brown on top. Serve with cool whip or ice cream of your choice. Note:  If using a 9 x 13 inch baking dish double this recipe and use a 29 ounce can of peaches. The recipe above is made with one regular sized can of sliced peaches and  a 9 x 9 baking dish.   Enjoy!. Note:   I did add a couple tablespoons of the peach juice to the batter and sprinkled about a tablespoon of cinnamon on top.  Just use your imagination with this quick and easy recipe and you can come up with all kinds of different cobblers!

  1. I have made this recipe many times using fresh or frozen fruit. Works great!

  2. My mother used to make this. It’s YUMMY!

  3. Needed a last minute dessert for Easter gathering and had no pie filling…so I changed it up a bit. Melted butter in 9×13 baking dish, mixed flour, sugar and milk and poured into baking dish. Then, took a large can of crushed pineapple and mixed it with 1 cup of sugar. Just poured this mixture over the flour mixture and baked about 1 hour at 350. Note: I did double the flour mixture as in the original recipe. Turned out yummy.

  4. I use to make this with my Mama and we’d just use canned peaches in heavy syrup. It was our favorite cobbler recipe. We did cut the sugar to 3/4 c because it was too sweet for us otherwise.

  5. When I make this cobbler, I use only 1/2 stick of butter, which I melt in the oven while I blend the flour, sugar, and milk (I also add a dash of vanilla to the batter). When the butter is melted and sizzling hot, I pour the batter over it, then I pour the peaches and all the juices evenly over the batter, and do not stir. The batter rises over the fruit and makes a nice crust. Bake on 350 until golden brown.

  6. I love this! I like a cup of selfrising flour, cup of sugar and a can of fruit cocktail (including the juice) and mix – bake 350deg. till it’s golden and it’s delish and simple.

  7. This is really good made with fresh blackberries.

  8. Cupa, cupa, cupa, that’s what we call this cobbler recipe………love it!!!!

  9. I MAKE PEACH COBBLER SIMILAR AND ADD A TSP OF ALMOND EXTRACT WITH IT …ALMOND IS GREAT WITH PEACH RECIPES.

  10. So happy to see this on here. We called it 1 cup cobbler. I have been making this for over 50 yrs. and it gets raves every time. Love your delish “Suthern” cookin. Yes, I am a GRIT…lol

  11. I don’t have self-rising flour. Would you be able to tell me how to adjust the recipe for this, using regular flour and whatever else is needed? Would I add baking powder and/or baking soda; and how much? Thanks in advance, I’m looking forward to making this!! 🙂

  12. I got this very recipe from my mama, we made it all the time, and now I make it for my family

  13. Grandma called this “Lazy Man Pie”! Been making for years. She always made it on wash day…which took all day using the wringer washing machine!

  14. Judy, I just got through making one of these. That’s the recipe my
    Mother used all the time. It’s so good. I had Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream to top it off!

  15. This is the cobbler recipe that my grandmother gave me when I got married, 39 years ago. She called it “Lazy Day Cobbler”.
    It’s awesome with blackberries too. Mmmmm

  16. I ALWAYS ADD A CUP OF QUICK OATS TO MINE. IT MAKES THE COBBLER GOOIE AND CHEWY.

  17. My mother called this “one cup cobbler”. Thanks for the reminder.

  18. Could anyone tell this ignorant English person what a stick of butter weighs please

  19. I make my cobblers with this recipe and have for years, I’m now a diabetic & use splenda instead of sugar. I also Double the recipe for bigger cobblers, & use fresh fruit in splenda syrup,( water slenda mixture)

  20. I have used this recipe for over 50 years, it is my fav dessert, simple an easyan of course so yummy….Thanks for your great delic recipes..

  22. Thank u So much! I use to make this…. Going to again now! Love cobbler!

  23. we make this ALL the time….tonight I am making it with pineapple and cranberry!!! I also sprinkle brown sugar over it before baking…YUMMY!

  24. i am cooking this for guests coming tomorrow. If I double the recipe for a 9×13 pan. I understand that I just double everything and then add a drained 29 oz. of peaches that have been cut up. Is this correct? What is confusing me, it says to add a regular size can of cut up peaches for the 9×9 size but it does not show the regular size of peaches as one of the ingredients used

  25. I’m looking for a good peach cobbler recipe, but this one is a little confusing. The recipe says 1 can fruit pie filling, but then on down you talk about adding the juice. So…….are you using the canned pie filling or just canned peaches? Thanks!

  26. Which is better can pie filling or just canned fruit?

  27. Can this be used with frozen fruit? I have tons of frozen berries. If so how much? About a cup and a half?

  28. I’ve made this recipe for over 10 years now…..it is delicious!!!!

  29. Do you drain the juice off the canned peaches or do you use it in the recipe? Thanks!

    • I drain it if using canned peaches. I usually use pie filling but you can use the canned peaches. You could add a little of the juice or replace some of the milk with the juice but not much. You don’t want it to be soggy.

  30. I make this all the time, It is very flexible. I use fresh, frozen or canned fruit. You can also use your imagination……my last experiment was fresh blueberry and peaches. YUMMY. I had a house guest and a quart of fresh cherries. Her question was what are you doing with the cherries. I said we can just eat them. She asked if I would made a cobbler. I said OK. She sat with a paring knife and pitted each cherry The cobbler was amazing. It is also called Poor Man’s Pie. I have given this recipe to countless people.

  31. do i use the can peaches and the juice or do i drain the juice off the peaches and use them without the juice. please let me now?

    • You can use pie filling or canned peaches. If using canned peaches, I drain them. You could add a little of the juice in it but not a lot or you could replace some of the milk with juice. You don’t want it to be soggy.
