Grandma Nellie's Surprise Cobbler

1 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 C milk

Mix into a batter and pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan or dutch oven. Batter will be thin.

If fresh fruit is used - use 6 cups sliced peaches, set aside in bowl.

If using bottled fruit - drained fruit (save juice) and cut in pieces, set aside in bowl.

In saucepan mix
1 C sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch, heaping
2 C. water (I use the reserved juice to make up most of the liquid--1 1/2 C of juice + 1/2 C water)

Bring to boil, then add fresh fruit. Do not cook. Mix together and pour on top of batter. Batter will rise through the fruit.

Place dots of butter on top and sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. (not sure on dutch oven cook time)
