    This is a great and easy cobbler. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar on top when I put this in the oven.

    We make this in a Dutch Camp Oven over (an under) charcoal. Mix the dry ingredients, then stir in butter. Raw fruit is prepped as needed–peeling or sectioning as appropriate. Amount of raw is about two, 2 1/2 cups. Canned is always more predictable. Judging sweetening is easy, too. If pie filling, lick some off one sanitized finger and adjust. If raw fruit, guess, then adjust next time. Just dump the filling on the top. It settles out as it bakes. My Scouts make this on almost every camp out, so accuracy is as expected for an eight to fifteen-year-old, both in measuring and aim. Always works, very forgiving.

    The directions in this recipe are confusing. Should fruit go in the bottom, batter dolloped on top, and melted butter poured over the top of that? TIA

    I’m a little confused. It says, “stir well and pour in melted butter in 11×8 pan.” Do I mix all ingredients except the butter (though this doesn’t sound right), or am I supposed to grease the pan with additional melted butter?….. Do I pour batter in and then just dump on top of batter, or dump in baking pan then pour batter? Oh, and how much fruit would you use? I’m sorry; I know this is titled “Lazy Man’s Cobbler,” but I’ve never made one before and am just not exactly sure what to do. THANKS!

    I want to make a blackberry pie, using premium blackberry pie filling. what all you put in the blackberry or just pour the filling in the pie shell? need help never made one before. thank you

      I would think that since the can is labeled blackberry pie filling it is complete and no additional ingredients would be needed for the pie filling. I hope this helps!
