1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place 4 tablespoons cut-up butter in 8 by 8-inch baking dish and transfer to oven. Heat until butter is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Mash, cut, or crush 2 cups fruit into nice bit-sized pieces, letting juices out. Taste and add sugar if needed.
4. Combine 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp spice (see note below), 2 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp salt in large bowl. Whisk in oil until well distributed, then whisk in milk and vanilla (if desired).
5. Remove baking dish from oven, transfer to wire rack, and pour batter into prepared pan.
6. Dollop mashed fruit mixture evenly over batter
7. Bake 20-25 minutes, brush top with additional melted butter (if desired), sprinkle with course sugar, and rotate pan.
7. Bake additional 20-30 minutes until golden brown and edges are crisp.
8. Let cobbler cool on wire rack for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
The fun in this is pairing the two interchangeable parts, fruit and spice. Here are some suggestions:
- Peaches and nutmeg
- Blueberries and cardamom
- Pears and galangal or ginger
- Cherries and cloves (sub almond extract for vanilla)
For an extra flourish you can brush the top crust with butter half-way through baking so that it bakes up extra golden brown and deliciously buttery. If you want the bread part of the cobbler to be richer or more tender, add butter to the batter or substitute some of the milk with half-and-half or cream.
