EASY FRUIT COBBLER — A simple but delicious cobbler recipe that can be made with practically any kind of fruit. Don’t forget to top it off with some vanilla ice cream!
It is so handy to have a dessert like this Easy Fruit Cobbler in your repertoire. Believe me, dessert doesn’t get much easier than this.
This simple cobbler takes about 10 minutes to put together. And I think it took even less time for my family to devour it.
I especially love that this recipe works well with all kinds of fruit, or even a combination of different fruits. My favorite version is one that uses a variety of mixed berries
And you probably have all the ingredients to make this cobbler in your pantry right now!
You can use fresh or frozen fruit in this recipe. Just note that if you use frozen fruit, you may need to increase the baking time by about five minutes.
This recipe is also a great way to use up fresh fruit that’s nearing the end of it’s lifespan. I often just toss whatever odds and ends of fruit I have into the mix and it always turns out great.
I always serve this dessert warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but a dollop of homemade whipped cream on top is delicious too.
And of course, since there is fruit in this recipe, I totally approve of having leftovers for breakfast the next day.
Even my husband, who claims not to like baked fruit desserts, goes back for seconds when I serve this Easy Fruit Cobbler. I hope you love it as much as we do!
Be sure to save this Easy Fruit Cobbler recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
Tips for Choosing and Storing Fresh Berries
Appearance: Look for berries that are bright and uniform in color. Avoid berries that look dull, dark, wrinkled or dried out. Be sure to check the container for crushed or moldy berries–don’t forget to check the bottom too!
Storing: Do not wash berries until you are ready to use them. Store them in the container you bought them in, or some type of breathable container. Avoid keeping them in the coldest part of your fridge.
To freeze berries, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for a few hours, then pour the frozen berries into a large zip-top plastic bag or container. Frozen berries will keep for up to 10 months.
