Crazy Mixed Up Berry Cobbler!

There is a bed and breakfast in our area that serves what they call a 'Bumbleberry Cobbler' as one of their featured desserts.  It's a cobbler with an assortment of berries in it and it's delicious.  Most of their cooks are Mennonite women who live in that community and those ladies can definitely cook.  This recipe is a variation on that idea for a cobbler.  I don't have their recipe, so one day I decided to make my own. 

 Of course, I added a few things, but this is a good variation and it is the easiest cobbler you can make.  No rolling out crust or making the lattice top.  Although, I think that is very pretty and probably makes for a better presentation, this cobbler takes a lot less time and tastes every bit as good.  You can also use this basic cobbler recipe and use any sort of filling you like or have on hand.

First, melt 1 stick of butter in a 9" x 13" baking dish.
Mix together milk, self rising flour, sugar and cinnamon until smooth.

It will look like this when blended.  Pour this mixture over the butter.  Do not stir.
Mix one bag of frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries) and one can of sliced peaches with 1 cup sugar.   Thaw the berries slightly by leaving them out for about an hour or so.  Don't drain the peaches, use the juice they are canned in.   You can use fresh berries instead of frozen and if you don't want to use the peaches just use 6 cups of berries and add 1/2 cup of water to the berry/sugar mixture.   The peaches do balance the berries out nicely though.
I sliced the peach slices in half.

Pour fruit mixture evenly over the batter.  Do not mix.  Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until the top is nice and brown.  Ovens vary so set the timer for 50 minutes and if it hasn't browned enough leave it for 5 to 10 more minutes.
This is how it will look when browned.  The crust rises to the top and the berries form a delicious filling. Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! 


4 cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen (use a mixture of any you like)
1 15 oz. can sliced peaches in syrup (do not drain)
1 stick butter (can use margarine)
2 cups sugar (1 for batter, 1 for sweetening berries)
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon

OPTIONS:  You can substitute any fruit you like in this. For example use 2 cans of peaches with their juice for a peach cobbler.
