This cherry cobbler recipe is an excellent way to use up fresh cherries. Unlike most recipes, this one uses fresh sour cherries instead of the canned. It does require a little work to pit the cherries but nothing major and the end result is fantastic. This recipe is fairly easy with few ingredients. The cherries are tossed with sugar to make them sweat. This is a perfect baking dish for summer. Enjoy.
½ cup butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
2 cups pitted sour cherries
¾ cup white sugar
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place butter into a 9×13” baking dish. Place into the oven to melt while it is preheating. Remove from the oven as soon as the butter is melted. In a medium bowl stir together 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and baking powder. Mix in the milk until well blended. Pour batter over the melted butter in the baking dish. Do not stir.
Step 2: Place cherries into a bowl and toss with the remaining ¾ cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour. Distribute cherry mixture evenly over the batter. Do not stir.
Step 3: Place into the oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes until golden brown or a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
