Almost a cobbler, but not quite! This is really a treat! My kids asked me to use less sugar next time! 'magine that!

1 c sugar
1/3 c butter
2 t baking powder
1 c milk
1/4 t salt
2 c flour
Cream sugar and butter together. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk. Pour evenly into a 9x13 greased pudding pan.
2 c pitted sour cherries (fresh or frozen are better)
2 c sugar
1/3 c butter, melted
2 c hot water
Mix all ingredients together until sugar is dissolved and pour over batter in pudding pan. Try to distribute cherries. Bake in 350 oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm (with cream or vanilla ice cream if you like).
*I found this recipe in an old Smokey Mountain cookbook that I picked up at the Goodwill. A great find!

Okay, I am simply drooling at all your food posts today!

Do you think this recipe will work even if the cherries are not sour? I've never found sour ones here where I live.

Thanks, Donna!

lol, .....yes it would but I would use less sugar. This was really sweet, so I'll likely use 1/2 cup less next time that I make it, and may use 1/2 wheat flour too! Despite any protests from my sweet-toothed children!
