Quick Cherry Cobbler

In July, I ordered ten pounds of cherries from a local farm and made this delicious cobbler.  This recipe is an old recipe my Mom had and I am not sure she knows where she got it.  But it is similar to many other cake-like old fashion cobbler recipes.  I still have some cherries in the freezer.  I hope to experiment with them soon!

Quick Cherry Cobbler

1/3 c butter or margarine
¾ c sugar
1 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ t salt
¾ c milk
½ t almond extract
2 c red cherries, pitted
¼ c additional sugar

Preheat oven to 325o.  Melt the butter or margarine in a 9x9 baking dish.  In a mixing bowl, combine the ¾ c sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk.  Pour over melted butter or margarine but do not stir.  Add almond extract to cherries and pour cherries over batter.  (You can substitute vanilla extract for the almond extract but the almond is recommended.)  Again, do not mix.  Sprinkle ¼ c sugar over cherries.  Bake for about 45 minutes.  The batter will rise and the cherries will settle to the bottom.  Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream!
Serves 8
