Default basic cobbler

A cobbler is like a pie, but it uses biscuit dough which for the novice is much faster and easier than a pie dough.
This recipe will make a "single" cobbler using 1 pint of freshly cooked or preserved fruit.
By "single" I mean a 6" x 10" rectangle or 8" diameter baking dish.
This recipe makes enough dough for both the top and bottom of the cobbler, so if you like yours topless or bottomless then act accordingly!

You are going to need:
  1. An oven preheated to 325 F (162 C)
  2. A baking pan
  3. A filling, which can be either:
    • Freshly made, heat as in pasteurization recipe but only to 180 F (82 C) or until a thick soup
    • From 1 or more pint jars of preserve stashed away from a harvest
  4. Dough-making tools
  5. The ingredients listed below

The center pan in the picture above is Pyrex, measuring 6 in. x 11 in. on top but only 5 in. by 9.5 in. at the base. I often double this recipe and make a "double" batch, using the pan at the right. For many guests or just overloads of fruit, I'll make a quadruple cobbler using the Teflon broiling pan on the right.

The Fruit: 1 pint cooked or preserved for a single, 2 pints for double, etc.

The Dough:
  • 1.75 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk at room temperature
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/4 cup) softened and partially melted unsalted butter or vegetable shortening (e.g., Crisco) or a combination of both -- cooled down to nearly room temperature.
When doubling, tripling, or quadrupling this recipe, I recommend a 50/50 mixture of unsalted butter and shortening instead of straight butter.

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the liquid ingredients and mix throughly until producing a soft dough. Roll out the top and bottom separately. For larger cobblers, roll out the bottom in two or three sections, and likewise for the top.

There is plenty of fat in the dough, so greasing the pan is not necessary unless you are using a metal pan with lots of rough aged spots.

Poke some holes in the top of the dough -- about 6 in a "single" recipe.

Bake for about 30 minutes in a preheated 325 F oven. Have a cooling rack available for when you take it out.

There are many variations on cobblers: "crumb" tops, etc. and I'm sure you'll find some of them posted here as time goes on.

Sounds yummy!

You can also do a "Crisp" topping by cutting the butter into Quick Oats, with cinnamon and cloves and brown sugar, then just layering this ontop of the fruit part. My Mum used to add walnuts or sliced almonds as well, and sometimes also raisins. So, basically, you can make it with Granola, I guess. This is less cohesive than a true Cobbler top, but if you get the blend of sugar to butter just right it sort of caramelizes on top.

Wild black raspberry... best cobbler ever.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

Thanks for the great recipe. In turn, I want to share a delicious and simple souffle cake recipe.
2 eggs
1 cup (250 ml) of sugar
1 teaspoon of soda
0.5 cups of vegetable oil (you can put less)
2 cups of flour
1 cup of milk

Beat eggs with sugar, add butter. Milk, vanillin and flour mixed with soda. Pour this dough into a mold, oiled and sprinkled with flour.
We spread the fruit from above. You can use both fresh and frozen.
I have a plum. We put in the oven preheated to 180 С and bake 30 minutes until golden brown. The pie turns out softer and juicier than the charlotte.

Hiya Re: basic cobbler

Curry Banana Stir Fry Sauce

2 fresh or frozen bananas, peeled and chopped
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. agave nectar
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. coconut oil
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend to a smooth texture.

For the stir fry, I used tempeh cubes, celery, carrots, red peppers and chopped leeks. Of course, you can use whatever ingredients you like in a stir fry.
Heat 1 tbsp. of coconut oil over medium heat in a skillet or wok and saute ingredients until cooked and maybe a little golden.
Pour in the curry banana sauce, thoroughly stir and simmer over low to medium heat covered for about 5 minutes.
Then enjoy! Sauce covers a 4-serving stir fry dish.
The sauce is a crazy blend of spiced banana with a curry kick, a little sweet and sour action and the perfect amount of curry. And the texture is just right, creamy and thick, like a savory pudding that coats everything nicely. Another plus is it came together fast, throwing the sauce together in the Vita-Mix just takes a couple of minutes and cook time is only about 15 minutes – perfect after a busy weekday.
If you’re a curry fan, give this recipe a try.
