Cherry Cobbler

24 Jul

We got a bunch of cherries from FFTY, and I had never made a cherry cobbler before, so I figured, why not. We had bought a cherry pitter before I made the Diabetic Dad pie (it actually worked on the cherry plums!), so that helped make prep tons quicker. This recipe was billed as “Cobbler for 2” but we easily made it into 4 servings – it’s a lot of food. I also wanted more toasty flavor to the topping, so I added a bit of oatmeal and wheat germ. It turned out great


Cherry filling

  • 2 cups of pitted cherries
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • dash of salt


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • [I also added a handful of rolled oats and a sprinkle of wheat germ, I added a little more butter and milk to make sure it would still be moist enough]
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  2. Pit the cherries and wash them. Add the 2 tbsp of sugar, lemon juice and a dash of salt to the cherries and mix well. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl add the remaining ingredients and mix well with a fork. Dough will be crumbly.
  4. Butter two ramekins (4″ in diameter). Pour half the cherries in each. Add the crumbled dough on top of the cherries.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden.
