Just Peachy: Summer Fruit Cobbler

Sometimes Summer's bounty is more robust than you can comfortably manage—that basket of peaches is starting to languish on the counter, berries are starting to shrivel in the fridge, and maybe even a fruit fly (or 20) are starting to eye your goods. Fret not: you can always convert these stragglers into something wonderful!

Summer Fruit Cobbler with Peaches Before Baking

Summer Fruit Cobbler

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup whole milk
About 2 cups fresh fruit, sliced or chopped (any soft fruit like peaches, nectarines, or berries)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan; set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together sugar, flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Add milk and mix until smooth (the batter will be quite thin). Scrape into prepared pan, top evenly with fruit, and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the cobbler is deeply golden all around the edges and the batter is completely cooked in the center. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes: Don't worry too much about the precise quantity of fruit—I happened to have just three wrinkly peaches when I made this cobbler, and it was delicious. You can certainly use more than one type of fruit, too. Definitely serve with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired!
