Cobbler with streusel

Modified from The Joy of Cooking (1973) “quick cherry crunch”. I made this to use up some really tart apricots and old peaches with a bad texture. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it, but it was really good!

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2-2/3 cup sugar (use the smaller amount if fruit is already quite sweet or has added sugar)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or other liquid oil
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • Some milk (I didn’t measure, maybe 1/3 cup?)
  • (Optional) 1 cup nuts (either soft/oily ones like walnuts and pecans, or thinly sliced if harder, like almonds)
  • 3-4 cups chopped fruit (use the smaller amount if fruit is quite sour)
  1. Mix all ingredients through baking powder. Split in half.
  2. Mix one half with the egg, milk, and nuts. Put in the bottom of baking dish (~9″ x 9″ x 2″).
  3. Add fruit. Top with other half of streusel mixture.
  4. Bake 35 min at 350°F.

The original recipe just put half the streusel below and half above the fruit, no milk, egg, or nuts added.
