You haven't had Cobbler if you haven't had this Cobbler!

The Very Old Family Cobbler Recipe

~ best if made with fresh picked blackberries! ~

A very special treat that is super easy to make

Amish Cobbler
1 cupSugar
1 cupFlour
1 cupMilk
1/2 cupButter
2 tspBaking Powder
1/4 tspSalt
1 lbFruit or Berries
  • Heat oven to 375°
  • Melt the butter in a GLASS breadpan
  • In a mixing bowl, combine ingredients except the berries
    • Mix with a fork
    • BUT, not too much - honestly!
  • Now, no more mixing!
  • Carefully pour batter into the middle of the pan so the butter stays between it and the pan.
  • Pour or Place the berries/fruit into the middle of the batter
  • I'm not kidding -- No Mixing!
  • If your pan is small you may need a cookie pan underneath in case the butter boils over.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes -
    • A knife stuck in the middle should come out with just butter, no batter.

We always serve with cream poured over the top (half-and-half will do.)


For dutch-Oven cooking (over a campfire)
The recipe stays the same,
But if you have a larger Dutch-Oven you may need more butter to be sure the batter stays surrounded.
Cooking longer not hotter is better.
Most likely it takes about an hour to an hour-and-a-half and you will need to manage the coals to keep an even heat. You need to keep the dutch-oven enough above the coals that they don't get smothered - I set mine on three small stones.
