Favorite Fruit Cobbler, using canned fruit!

Looking for a delicious way to use up some of your home-canned fruit from last year? Favorite Fruit Cobbler is the perfect recipe for home-canned or even store-bought fruit!


Fruit desserts are a favorite around here! And as spring rolls around there is a desire to eat from the stock of home-canned fruit in anticipation of the new crop later in the year, and canning once again becomes the task of the day. Just as the fruits and vegetables grow in your garden, processing them is part of the cycle of growth and spring to summer living. And that is how Favorite Fruit Cobbler came to be...

This basic recipe can be used for any canned fruit, your own home-canned or store-bought. And it goes without saying that any fruit will make a delicious cobbler. You may decide to change out the spice or leave it out completely depending on the fruit used. But this recipe is a fun one to have on hand and more importantly, a makes a delicious dessert to end the meal.  


The preparation is simple, and the topping is quick to stir together. So easy that this is a great recipe to make with a young helper in the kitchen! Plus they will love having had a chance to brag about helping make dessert for the family. And by now you should know that while this is delicious plain, Favorite Fruit Cobbler is perfect with a touch of cream on top, such as whipped cream or ice cream!


Some thoughts on this recipe:

For a pear cobbler, consider cardamom or nutmeg.

For a peach or rhubarb cobbler, consider cinnamon.

Or any combination of your choosing, you can't go wrong with fruit and spice!


Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • 1 qt or 2 16-oz cans or jars of canned fruit
  • lemon juice
  • whole wheat flour
  • sugar
  • cinnamon
  • salt 
  • egg 
  • butter
You will also need the following:
  • 9X13 baking pan
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • mesh strainer
  • medium-sized mixing bowl
  • kitchen spoon
Now we are ready to begin!



Favorite Fruit Cobbler

inspired by Crust Lovers Fruit Cobbler
350-degree oven

1 qt jar or 2 16 oz jars or cans of fruit, drained, reserve the syrup
1 T lemon juice
1 c whole wheat flour, we use pastry grind 
1 c sugar
3/4 t cinnamon
1 t salt
1 egg
5 T butter, melted

Drain the fruit, reserving the syrup. Place the drained fruit in the bottom of the 9X13 baking pan. Fruit should cover the bottom of the pan in an even layer. Add enough of the reserved syrup to have about 1/2 inch of syrup in the bottom of the pan.


Combine the whole wheat flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Use a whisk to mix everything together. Make a "well" in the middle of the dry mixture, and add the egg. Beat egg in place and immediately combine the beaten egg with the dry ingredients to make a crumb mixture. 



Sprinkle crumbs evenly over the fruit.

Drizzle with the melted butter. 



Bake 35-45 minutes or until golden and bubbly in your oven. 

Let cool before serving. Serve plain or with a bit of whipped cream, iced cream, or a dollop of honey Greek yogurt.


It is always best to sample before serving to your guests!

  3. Melynda, thanks for featuring cobblers, which I love. It occurs-- a savory cobbler would be a veggie casserole with hot buttered crumbs, like my Southern family used to make. Yum!
