Super Simple Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Super Simple Fresh Fruit Cobbler

My father came to dinner last night. He has a serious sweet tooth and would have been perfectly happy only eating a freshly baked dessert for dinner. On yesterday’s tight schedule the thought of baking put me over the edge, but I do have my mom’s cobbler recipe-practically instant-that handily used up the last of my Michigan blueberries. Michigan peaches and raspberries are in their prime right now, they’d be wonderful as substitutes for the blueberries in this recipe.

I was tempted to add a half teaspoon of vanilla and half teaspoon of cinnamon to the sugar-butter mixture. Chopped walnuts or pecans, as well, would have been delicious sprinkled over the top. But this is the way my mom made it for dad so I’ll stay true to her recipe. Serve it hot out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The butter and sugar caramelize over the bread strips, creating an addictive, crunchy treat!
