I have had a package of Louisiana Cobbler Mix in the pantry for some time now. This morning I noticed it was sitting on the shelf alongside a can of diced peaches. Coincidence? I think not. A quick check of the directions confirmed that I had all the additional ingredients, butter and milk, on hand, so I was off to make cobbler.
This goes together in a snap. Melt the butter and pour it in a casserole dish. Add milk to the cobbler mix, stir and pour that in the pan. Top it with a can of fruit and the juice and bake for 40 minutes. So easy, but would it taste good?
The answer is an enthusiastic yes! This mix has turbinado sugar in it and that gives it a really nice crunch. I wasn’t sure I would like that but it was my favorite thing about the cobbler. The edges and corners are extra crunchy. I was also concerned about adding the syrup from the canned fruit too but it works. It actually thickens and becomes a nice sauce on the bottom with the cake and fruit on top. This won’t take the place of your Grandma’s fruit cobbler, but it is certainly might make the family happy on a school night!
This would be a perfect mix to keep in the pantry for those times when you need a quick dessert. Just add your favorite fresh or canned fruit, milk, and butter and it is ready to bake. You could serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or cold with fresh whipped cream. Yummy.
The package says the cobbler serves 7. I think it would serve 4-5, unless one of them was me!
