This easy homemade cherry cobbler recipe is a fan favorite for a reason. It is the go-to dessert for anyone who has a sweet tooth. And because it is so easy to make, you can certainly have it at any time of the day or night. All you need is a few basic ingredients and some fresh cherries.
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 large egg
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. butter (unsalted, melted)
2 lbs. cherries (fresh, pitted, cut in half)
1/2 c. sugar (granulated)
2 tbsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. salt
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Wash and pit the cherries. Slice them in half and place them in a saucepan. Add all the other ingredients for filling. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, but be sure to stir occasionally.
- To make the batter, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, milk, salt, and egg in a bowl until smooth. Melt the butter in the skillet, remove from heat, then pour the batter in.
- Spoon the cherry mixture in an even layer over the batter. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
- To make it much easier to pit the cherries, use a pitter.
- You can serve your cherry cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
A cherry cobbler will last for about 4 to 5 days in the fridge. You have the option to store it either in an airtight container or in the skillet itself so you won’t have to worry about making a huge mess.
If you opt to keep it in the skillet, let it cool completely and then cover it with plastic wrap or foil. You can simply reheat it in the microwave later on.
