Jewel's Fruit Cobbler

Jewel, a wonderful Southern cook, was a huge part of my life while growing up. She always made the most delicious “cobbage, ” as she called it. I didn’t realize how easy it was to make until I got old enough to cook.

FIRST Preheat oven to 350. Put butter in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish; bake until butter is melted. Set aside.

NEXT In a medium bowl, combine flour, milk, 3/4 cup sugar, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, toss peaches, blueberries, and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar.

LAST Pour batter into dish over melted butter, but do not stir. Spoon fruit over batter along with 1/2 cup fruit juice from bottom of bowl. (Discard any extra juice.) Do not stir; bake 25 minutes, or until crust browns.
