Fruit Cobbler Recipe…

I haven’t been feeling too good this weekend so rather than write up the recipe I was planning to share with you yesterday, I’m going to share my favourite comfort food pudding recipe – fruit cobbler.

Fruit cobbler

It’s easy to make and uses pretty much whatever fruit you have in the house – whether it’s fresh, frozen or even tinned as I used today in tonights Peach and Mandarin Fruit Cobbler.  Aside from the fruit, there are just three ingredients and you don’t even have to measure them out specifically as you can just use cups instead.

Amazing, easy fruit cobbler recipe!

This was just what I needed tonight although the photo above isn’t my portion as I only had a small amount thanks to feeling grotty.  My husband managed to polish off the portion above in no time at all though!

I’ve made this in the past using all sorts of combinations of fruit – apple and cinnamon is amazing but not as gorgeous as pear and chocolate chip.

I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this fruit cobbler recipe is! Honestly it's not only the easiest pudding to make, it's also the most comforting pudding to eat!


  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Approx 2 cups of fruit - today I used 1 tin mandarin segments and 1 tin of peach slices, drained.


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 c
  2. Cover the bottom of an ovenproof dish with the fruit you're using. Today's fruit cobbler was a last-minute decision so I just went with two tins of fruit which is about the quantity I'd advise using - about two cups worth.
  3. In a large bowl or jug, mix the flour, milk and sugar until it's smooth.
  4. Pour the mix over the fruit and give it a bit of a mix about - this makes sure the fruit is distributed and also absorbs any liquid on the fruit is absorbed rather than having it sit at the bottom of the dish.
  5. Pop in the oven for 35-40 minutes until the cobbler is cooked through and golden on top.


You can use actual cup measurements for the milk, flour and sugar or just use a mug instead - the key is that these measurements are equal.
