- 2 cups Flour
- 2 cups Sugar
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 3 tsp. Baking Powder
- Water for batter
- 1 gallon Fruit, cherries are preferred but any fruit will do
- Lemon juice and sugar to taste
In a large cobbler pan or medium Dutch oven, stir all dry ingredients. Add enough water to make a thick batter. Spread evenly. Drain juice from the fruit and add a little salt, lemon juice and sugar to make juice taste good. Spread fruit on the batter and pour juice over it. Bake at 350^F for 1 hour.
If you use a Dutch oven and cook outdoors, live coals are put on the lid until the cobbler begins to puff up and gets a little brown. Take coals off the lid and continue cooking slowly.
