Easy Fruit Pies and Cobbler Recipes

Mulberry Cobbler

I made a Mulberry Cobbler today. Those mulberries have been sitting in the freezer since Spring just waiting for me to make something. I also added a little rhubarb for tartness instead of lemon. See the recipe for Easy Country Cobbler below.

This page is for miscellaneous fruit pies and cobblers. Some more fruit pies are on other pages too, like the Blueberry pie, Strawberry pies, and Apple pies. Be sure to pick out a pie crust.

Fruit Cobbler recipes

Easy Country Cobbler

  • 2 c mulberries (or other fruit)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 c sugar, depending on the sweetness of the fruit
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c brown sugar
  • 3/4 c milk
  • 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest, or lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the berries in a bowl and stir in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar into the fruit and set aside. (Don't do this, if your fruit is already sweet!) Melt the butter in an 8-inch glass baking dish. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together, and stir in the brown sugar; add the milk and lemon zest and mix.

Pour the batter into the dish of melted butter. Do not mix. Sprinkle the mulberries over the batter. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Yield: 6 servings.

My Note: This is a recipe I have made many times, but I can't remember which book I found it in. So I'm going to put it right here, so I don't lose it! Any kind of fruit or berries works in this easy recipe. I mainly use my frozen mulberries in it, and I don't add extra sugar to the mulberries.
