Fruit Cobbler

By Helen Brody (June 28, 2015)

This cobbler can be whipped up in ten minutes. If you do not want the fruit baked in, as is defined by a cobbler, make the batter without the fruit and top with fresh fruit after the cake has cooled. If cobbler style unmold five minutes after removing from oven. If making without fruit, do not unmold and  serve covered with fresh fruit out of the skillet.

1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 half stick)
