Any Fruit Cobbler Recipe That Is Super Easy To Make Using Fresh Or Canned Fruit

This easy any fruit cobbler recipe is a true southern favorite.  Nothing beats a buttery fruit cobbler when you are entertaining down in the south!  It can be made with any kind of fruit, regardless of it it’s fresh or canned.

You only need a few simple ingredients to make this recipe.  Some people call this the cuppa cobbler, because it uses just one cup of each ingredient which makes it a recipe that is very easy to remember!

This Truly Is An Any Fruit Cobbler Recipe!

The fruit and fruit juice ingredients are not that difficult to use to adapt the peach cobbler recipe below.  Simply take any fruit that you like, canned or fresh, and use it instead of peaches!

I do not recommend using banana or citrus fruits, because they will not do as well in this recipe as others like apples or pears.  Berries are great to use in this recipe, including strawberries!  Mango is a favorite of mine, it makes for a very fine dish indeed.

Here’s How You Can Use Fresh Fruit Instead Of Canned

To use fresh fruit, simply slice the fruit (if it’s apples or pears etc,) into slices that are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.  You will need about 3 cups of slices because they will shrink once they have been boiled down.

The same with berries, 3 cups of fresh or frozen berries will be needed.  This is why I say that this is truly an ANY fruit cobbler recipe!  You literally can use any fruit that you like, just some will not do as well as others.

Simply add 2 cups of water, with 1/2 cup of sugar to your fruit.  Bring the mixture to a boil, then let it simmer on low for 30 minutes to one hour.  This method cooks the juice out of the fruit, to make a delicious juice to use in the recipe.

Freeze any left over fruit and juice in separate freezer bags.  You can use them later to produce a “Fruit medley” cobbler, if you start accumulating excess of different types of fruit.

Feeding Large Crowds Is Not A Problem!

You can easily increase the recipe to feed as large of a crowd as you wish also. This cobbler recipe can be made on a commercial scale, it’s a favorite when catering southern events like weddings.

To increase the recipe, you will first need to decide which pans you wish to use.  If you are catering an event, then aluminum pans are perfect to use.

You will want to mix up enough recipe to make one small cobbler, and place these ingredients in the baking dish of your choice.  If it’s a larger baking dish, then you will want to multiple the recipe times 2.

Some pans can hold even more than this, if yours can, then simply add each ingredient times 3.  Keep doing this until your pan is almost full, then you’ll know how much to make in the future using your larger pans.  Larger cobblers will require more cooking time.

To determine cooking time, watch the top of the cobbler carefully.  When it becomes golden brown, you can dip a bit out from the middle to be sure it’s done.  Write down the time it takes to cook the larger dishes.

This recipe can be frozen (uncooked) for up to three months.  If you choose to freeze it, then cooking frozen cobbler will require more time than if it’s fresh.   Simply watch your cobbler as it bakes, until the top is a golden brown.
