Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

So y’all have to know by now how excited I am about DH’s self immersion into the world cooking. Not only do I love the way he is finding enjoyment in searching and making new dishes, but it is also pretty great to come home from the office to a fully prepared dinner.

I did not nag.
I did not ask.
He went willingly into the light himself. And I am forever thankful as any other working mom would be.

So what do you think was my reaction when I heard this…..

“So I was thinking I might bake a fruit cobbler this week.”

My head spun around.
Completely.
Picture the scene from the Exorcist, but without all the other gross effects (since this is a recipe post after all)

I thought I misheard him.

Wait.
Hold on.
Let me get this straight.

Not only is the love of my life cooking dinner on a regular, but he now is also offering to bake dessert?!?!?
I swear the heavens opened up, and I heard angels singing right there in my kitchen.

So here it is.
The first baked dessert my loving husband has ever made.

How amazing does this look?

We decided to serve our cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Definitely, the way to go in my opinion.
CRAZY delicious!

We had extra fresh blueberries so DH (in all his sweetness), offered to make another cobbler for me to take into the office and share with my coworkers.

The verdict came back as EXCELLENT from all taste testers.

You don’t have to take my word for it though, you can find the recipe here at allrecipes.com and give it a try for yourself!
It’s definitely a keeper! We can’t wait to try it again as fresh cherries come into season.

What is the first dessert you ever tried to make?
Was it a success?
