Becky Troyer’s Magic Cobbler

Laura V. Hilton, author of Patchwork Dreams, joins us today. Her main character, Becky Troyer, is sharing her Magic Cobbler recipe.

“I have to make a lot of cobblers for quilting frolics and this is my never fail recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  I use whatever fruit is in season except in the winter, then I use fruit I canned.  If you use fresh fruit, you need the sugar that is listed.  If you used canned cut the sugar level in half, and use only 1 cup divided.” -Becky Troyer

Becky Troyer’s Magic Cobbler

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 2 cups fresh fruit (peaches, apples, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In 8×11 inch pan, melt butter. In mixing bowl, combine milk, 1 cup sugar,
flour and baking powder. Pour mixture over melted butter, but do not stir.
Spread fruit on top and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup sugar. Again, do not
stir. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until fruit is soft.

Note: If you use canned or frozen fruit, cut sugar down by half.

Serves 8

Patchwork Dreams Book 1 of The Amish of Seymour

Becky Troyer has committed the ultimate sin, and finds herself on the edge of her Amish community. Jacob Miller believes he was sent to the Old Order Community in Missouri to help out a distant cousin. Instead, he discovers he was part of an arranged swap–sending men from his Pennsylvania district to the Missouri district to bring new blood into the Amish community. Becky dreams of marriage, but doesn’t dare hope that anyone would choose her–not with her history. Can God use the lies that have affected Becky and Jacob to bring them together? Or will Jacob rebel and head home to his first love?

  1. mmm this looks really good! I will have to try this next time I make dessert for a group. 8 servings of cobbler to myself wouldn’t be a good thing 🙂
