Quick Any-Fruit Cobbler  (from my friend Rusty)

 1 stick butter or margarine

1 c. self-rising flour (or 1 c. flour + 1 t. baking powder + 1/4 t. salt)

1 c. sugar

1 c. milk

2 c. fruit

 Heat oven to 350°. Melt butter in glass 8" x 10" or 9" x 9" pan, or a 2-quart casserole. Mix flour, sugar and milk until lumps are gone. Pour batter into butter. Place fruit on top. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Makes 9 servings.

 (Rusty's likes using:  1 c. blueberries + 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped, and tossed the fruit with a little lemon juice before putting it in the batter).
