Backyard Cherry Cobbler
1 cube butter or margarine
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2-cups sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. poppy seeds
2 cans (14 1/2 oz.) cherries save the juice
1 cup brown sugar
Put 7-8 charcoal briquettes under a 12” Dutch oven and melt the butter or margarine. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, poppy seeds and about 2/3 juice from the cherries to make a fairly dense batter.
Add a little more juice until you can just stir it with a heavy spoon.
Pour gently on top of the melted butter.
Mix the brown sugar into the cherries.
Pour gently into the middle of the batter.
Put the lid on and add about 16-18 charcoal briquettes to the top around the rim. Bake for 45 minutes to about one hour… (Be sure to pull the bottom heat at about 30 minutes.)
Check it at 30 minutes. The cobbler should be as high as it is going to get.
Check it too early and it will probably crash, turning it into a flat something. (Still good to eat!)
You can also put your Dutch oven in your regular oven without the lid at 350°, just remove the racks first and add a little more time.
