Cue the drooling. This is our new favorite summer dessert. Hot bubbling fruit underneath a blanket of crackling sweet topping? Sign me up!
Let me show you how simple this recipe comes together. Brown some butter. Mix some ingredients. Add fruit. Sprinkle with brown sugar. DO NOT MIX OR TOUCH. Done.
The most difficult part about assembling this cobbler is not mixing all the things together before you put it in the oven. But you must. not. mix. Be strong! Be brave! I believe in you!
And then, to add to the fun, you get to perform a magic trick. Put it in the oven with the batter on the bottom and the fruit on top. Say some magic words, set the timer for forty-five minutes. Presto-chango, the crust is on the top and the fruit has moved to the bottom! Ta-da!!!
For my next trick, I will be making the entire thing disappear. Can I get a volunteer from the audience?
A 12-inch cast iron skillet is the pan of my choice, but if you do not own one, you can certainly use an eight or nine-inch square baking dish.
Can you eat this without ice cream? Sure. Should you eat this without ice cream? I don't even know how to process that question. Do yourself a favor and pick up a half-gallon of Blue Bell to make this cobbler the ideal way to end a summer meal.
Bonus points: you can use any summer fruit (or combination of fruits!) you like. Or, make this with frozen fruit, but make sure you thaw and drain all the liquid before beginning.
