The "original" Village recipe:
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) == 113 grams (recommend less butter)
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 2-3 cups berries or peaches
Preheat oven to 350°F = 177°C
Put the butter in a 9x13-inch Pyrex baking dish and put the dish in the preheating oven. While the butter is melting, mix up the batter by combining the flour, salt, sugar and milk.
When the butter is completely melted, remove the pan and pour the batter into the melted butter. Then, carefully spoon the berries/peaches and juice evenly over the batter. Return dish to the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
As the cobbler cooks, the batter will rise up and around the berries/peaches.
Makes 10 to 12 serving
