Cupboard Cobbler:

2lbs fruit (fresh or frozen) peeled and sliced
1-2 TBSP sugar – depending on the sweetness of the fruit
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 tsp cornstarch
ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves (a pinch of each)
1 cup flour
6 TBSP butter cubes at room temperature
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup of boiling water
cinnamon sugar mix


In a bowl, mix fruit, sugar, juice of a lemon and cornstarch. Then add cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Stir. Put in a buttered baking dish and bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.

In another bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, and butter. Mix together with your hands until butter is in small bits and blended throughout. Then add 1/4 cup of boiling water. Stir gently with a spatula or wooden spoon until you have a loosely formed dough. Put spoonfuls of dough on top of fruit mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. 10 minutes into baking, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. Let it cook for the remaining 10 minutes. When crust is golden brown, it is done! Enjoy! (preferably with ice cream!)
