Cooking with Pastor King: Quarantine Cobbler
Updated: Feb 23, 2022
If you're quarantined in the house and want to try your hand at baking, try this:
1 cup self-rising flour
(If you don't have any, add one and a half teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of plain or other flour)
1 cup sugar*
1 cup milk*
1/2 c butter (room temp)
(Substitute margarine or shortening if necessary)
1 can of sliced peaches, drained
*(You can use the juice from the peaches to supplement the milk to make a cup. If so, reduce the sugar by half).
If you don't have peaches, any canned fruit (or pie filling) will do. If you have some frozen berries (like I do), squeeze a little lemon juice over them for flavor). Be creative fresh apples, raisins, cranberries, etc.), but stay away from bananas - unless you resort to doing bread, muffins, or pancakes instead of cobbler.
Mix the first four ingredients in a bowl the pour them into a square or rectangle baking pan. Evenly arrange the fruit over mixture ( I recommend starting with the corners and working toward the center).
Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top the fruit (if it seems appropriate to you).
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 45 minutes (or until golden brown).
