How to Make a Classic Cherry Cobbler from Scratch
Who said baking from scratch has to be difficult? Bakers from years gone by loved saving time in the kitchen just as much as we do today.
And this cherry cobbler is the perfect example. Prep time is just minutes with a bake time right around twenty-five minutes.
The only equipment you need is a mixing bowl and a 9×9 baking dish.
Cherries: If using fresh cherries, slice them in half and discard the pits. Canned cherries are already prepared, keep the juices for your filling.
Mixing Filling: Once cherries are prepper it’s time to mix your filling together. Simply stir your filling ingredients together until well combined.
Topping: To prepare your cobbler topping, simply stir ingredients together. Once combined, spoon your topping over your cherry filling evenly.

One of my favorite things about baking old fashioned recipes like this is that all the ingredients you need are common and usually stocked in the pantry.
Because it only uses pantry staples (especially if using canned cherries) this is a great last minute dessert to add to your rotation.
- Tart Dark Cherries
- Granulated Sugar
Cherries: Fresh or canned cherries work great in this cobbler. While you can opt for sweet cherries, tart provide the best flavor in my opinion. Make sure they are pitted, and if using canned, retain the juices.
Bisquick: This versatile baking ingredient was a quite popular during my grandmother’s day. It produces a great topping texture and is super easy to work with. Keep it stocked in your pantry, you’re going to love how this topping tastes.
Butter: I usually use salted butter, but if unsalted is all you have on hand, that will work. Simply add a pinch of salt when stirring together your topping ingredients. Make sure to melt your butter before adding it in.
