Sweet Tooth

For at least the last twenty years, my Mom has been making this cherry cobbler-type dessert. She makes it just about every time we go to visit her, and she always makes it for breakfast. If you use your imagination, it's almost like a cherry pancake. At any rate, it's my favorite dessert that she makes. When I think of her house, it's the smell of this dish baking that I think of! I always thought it was so complicated that I couldn't handle making it myself. I'm not the baker in the family - Michael is. But when she gave me the recipe and I made it for a potluck, I was shocked at how simple it was. So in the spirit of giving, and in the spirit of massive amounts of holiday parties for the next month that you might need to bring a dessert to, I give you this recipe. Use it well!

Grandma Rose's Cherry Dessert

1 21oz can of Comstock's More Fruit Cherry (Generally on deep discount this time of year!)
1 cup sugar
1 cup self rising flour (Different from normal all-purpose flour! Don't confuse them!)
1 cup milk
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter

Place butter in 9x13 inch pan, place in oven. Turn oven to 350 degrees F.
While oven is heating, mix batter of sugar, self rising flour, and milk.
Once butter has melted, pull pan out of oven and pour in batter.
Spoon cherry filling onto top of batter.
Place pan back into the oven.
Bake 45 minutes.

You could technically eat this cold, but if you taste it while it's still warm (but not bubbling) from the oven, you'll never want to eat it cold again! Enjoy!
