Cobbler (aka Virginia Pudding)

I have no idea why it's called "Virginia Pudding" in my family, but it is, so there.

Stupid easy. :)

1/2 stick butter
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup self rising flour (OR 1 cup flour + 1/2 teaspoon baking powder + 1/4 teaspoon salt)
spices to taste (I'm a crazy head and often do about a tablespoon of cinnamon, or about a tablespoon total of cinnamon, ginger and cloves)
1 can of pie filling (or equivalent)
1 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish

Put butter in baking dish, put in oven, set oven to 350. While oven is heating, mix together milk, sugar, flour and spices. When oven is at temp and butter is melted, pour batter into dish, then dump the pie filling in. Bake until it starts to smell "done" and the batter is now a golden cake-like substance. :)

well, it is Virginia Pudding ---though I've seen Virginia Pudding with apples and with molasses, and with a couple of other things. By the time my grandmother got ahold of it the "one can of pie filling" was standard, though. Maybe it was sometime around when people stopped fixing shoes that they started using 'cobbler' to differentiate between sweet puddings and savory. I say "sometime around" because plainly "cobbled together" was still in common usage...

*grin* menstrual, blithery. I want ice cream, but not badly enough to leave the house.
