I lived in Savannah, Georgia, for a couple years in my early 20s. What a gorgeous place to live, the downtown scenery and vibe mixed with so much history. And the food.
OOOhhhh, the food. You don’t have to love Paula Deen to enjoy all Savannah has to offer in the way of restaurants, pubs, cafés and eateries.
I loved some of the desserts I learned how to make while living there, and a favorite of mine to this day is cobbler. Not crumble, not buckle, but a true cobbler – gooey, sweet and super easy to make, with ingredients you can keep on hand, all of the time.
I’ve made this recipe with all kinds of fruit, fresh or frozen. My favorites are peach and blueberry, but strawberries, raspberries, and any other soft flesh fruit or berry will work great.
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Combine 1 cup sugar with the fruit in large bowl and set aside. Put the butter in a 9×13″ baking dish and place it in the oven to melt.
Meanwhile, in another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, 2 cups sugar, salt and milk to make a batter.
Once the butter has completely melted (but don’t let it brown), pour the batter in – DO NOT STIR! Next, drop the peaches and blackberries on top of the batter – again DO NOT STIR!
Bake until the crust is puffy, light brown and bubbly around the edges – about 40 to 45 minutes.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
