Tennessee Cobbler

This is our friend Hannah's cobbler recipe. It's quick, delicious, and perfect served with warm, with vanilla ice cream on top.

The Recipe:

Mix 2 cups of fruit-any kind you like-with sugar and vanilla, to taste.

In a mixing bowl measure:

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Mix well.

1 egg (beaten)
1-1 1/2 cups milk

Mix well, again.

Melt 1 stick of butter your cobbler pan in the hot oven (it works best to do this while you are mixing the rest of the ingredients).

Pour the batter into the pan, over the melted butter.

Spread the fruit filling over the batter- do NOT stir.

Bake at 350 degrees 'till edges are golden brown and the middle is done,
35-40 minutes.



  1. That looks soooooo good! I have a lot of cherries in the freezer, and I think I will use some to make this. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Hello there Rosie!

    I found you because you link to the Gentlewoman's Almanac. I just looked through your blog and it is very sweet. I love the photos of farm life and the femininity that blossoms here. And I always like finding someone who reads C.S. Lewis and J. Austen and Laura Ingalls Wilder!
    As you can tell, I have had a hard time keeping up with the Almanac in this particularly busy season of my life. If you have any interest, would you like to write a guest post for the Almanac? It can be about a lady author, missionary, musician or whoever inspires you, or something like a book review.
    Let me know if you're interested by leaving a comment at the Almanac!

  3. I love this recipe! Sooooo easy and quick. I can do this without looking at a book, I have actually made it that much. We love blackberry, but I think peach is my favorite. Apples are good done this way, just stew them a bit first.

    Much love - hope you are staying cool - Raquel XO

  4. This recipe looks so good and easy! I have blueberries I might use this recipe for later on today. I even have some vanilla ice cream...my dh will love it!

  5. Making this tonight Rosie! With oven-fried chicken, corn on the cob, chop salad and mashed taters and gravy. Well, we won't be eating on time tonight but it will be tasty when we do. <3

  6. hehe...I am guessing this is the recipe from Hannah West? :) I have their DVDs and she said in one of them, how the cobbler was her favorite and she makes it *a lot*! :)
    Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  7. HI! We are snowed in here and watching Homestead Blessing's DVD's. We just made the Buttermilk pancakes and might try Hannah's cobbler!! It looks delicious. The West Ladies Cookbook is wonderful. God bless, Rose and girls
