Melt butter in a 9x9 pan. Personally, I heat the oven up and melt the butter directly in the pan in the oven.
Mix sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk in a bowl. When butter is melted, pour batter on top. Spoon fruit over the batter and butter mixture evenly and pour any juice from the fruit over the top. When fresh fruit is sliced or pitted, some juices and liquid will draw at the bottom of the bowl; make sure to drizzle this over the top before baking!
Bake at 350°F for 45 to 55 minutes until golden brown. The cobbler should be set in the middle and not jiggle when lightly shook.
Serve with a scoop of quality vanilla ice cream or freshly-made whipped cream!
If making a cobbler using a different fruit, use 2 ½ cups of desired fruit along with their juices.
