Cherry Cobbler

I made this berry cobbler the other day and it ended up boiling over.  I laughed when it came out of the oven, thinking there was no way I could possibly use this picture for a blog post, but then when I posted it on Cooking With Jax's Facebook Page to poke fun at my disaster, tons of readers thought it still looked delicious and asked for the recipe.  It WAS still delicious, even though it didn't turn out picture perfect this time, I knew that if I had used a larger different dish like the recipe calls for, it would have turned out perfectly.  The truth is, things don't always turn out exactly as planned.  That's been going on a lot lately in my life, but I'm trying to just go with it instead of letting it stress me out.  So, instead of remaking this entire recipe just so I'd get a better picture, I decided to just go with it and try not be such a perfectionist this time around!

This cobbler is my Gramma's recipe and it's a huge family favourite - Gramma's signature dish is to make it with blackberries, and while that's still my personal favourite, I've made it with raspberries (SO good), peaches, pears, and even mango all with excellent results!  I made the cobbler with fresh, BC cherries this time around, and I have to say I highly recommend it!  Do you yourself a favour though, put it in a 9x13 pan, not the pretty artsy pan that's just a smidge too small.  ;)

- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk

Mix the above ingredients thoroughly and place in a 9 x 13 pan or dish.  

Combine the following ingredients and pour over the batter. 
- 2 cups berry or other fruit
- 1 granulated sugar
- 1 cup water

Bake in an oven pre-heated to 350 degrees for 1 hour.
