My ‘Super Easy Peach Cobbler’ can be made with a variety of Fruit. Today I used Fresh Cherries (Dark Coloured Cherries) that are in season. When Fresh Cherries are not available, You can use Frozen Cherries OR Canned Cherries, but you need to alter the amount of Sugar accordingly.


4 Servings


500g Fresh Cherries
*Note: If you use Frozen Cherries OR Canned Cherries, alter the cooking time and the amount of Sugar accordingly.
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
1 pinch Salt
1 tablespoon Corn Starch
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
Thickened Cream OR Ice Cream to serve

60g Butter *melted
1/2 cup Self-Raising Flour
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
1/2 cup Milk

  1. Wash Cherries, cut them in half, twist to separate, and remove the stones. *Note: If you used Canned Cherries, drain very well. You would need at least 400g pitted Cherries.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  3. Combine Cherries, Caster Sugar, Salt, Corn Starch and Lemon Juice in a heat-proof bowl, cover with a plate, and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes (OR longer if Frozen Cherries are used), mix well, then heat for 2 more minutes. *Note: Naturally you can heat them in a saucepan, with a little bit of Water if required, over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Place chopped Butter in the baking dish and microwave to melt, OR spread melted Butter in the dish. Combine all other Batter ingredients in a measuring jug OR bowl, and pour it over the melted Butter evenly.

  5. Spoon the Cherry mixture over the Batter evenly and bake for 30-35 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked though.

  6. Serve Cherry Cobbler warm, with Thickened Cream OR Ice Cream. Today I served with slightly whipped Thickened Cream.
