Easy to make and very tasty cobbler! I used a can of fruit cocktail with the extra cherries and that was a yummy choice to make. Want to try this with peaches and might double the recipe. Made and reviewed for the 2014 Culinary Quest - Family Picks Southern USA.

This fruit cobbler recipe is almost exactly like my mother's recipe. It's so quick and easy to put together using ingredients I keep on hand. Very yummy with a scoop of ice cream on top! Made for my U.S. Southern meal for Culinary Quest.

This was very easy and delicious! I went a different way with this and used fresh blackberries that I grow. I followed the directions except I also sprinkled some sugar on the blackberries and let them sit a few minutes before I poured the batter in the pan.

I made it with fruit cocktail and it was good. So easy! I used Cool Whip to top it and we had a very nice simple dessert.

I bought a container of fruit in its own juices. It was full of peaches, pineapples, grapes and cherries. I topped ours with vanilla ice cream warm out of the oven. It made a delicious cobbler!
