This might be one of the easiest desserts you'll ever make! A simple batter is combined with raspberries to create a homemade dish that everyone will enjoy. And that's exactly why it's called lazy cobbler! Not only is it tasty, but baking this recipe is a great way to bring together friends and family.
Add the butter to a 9x9 baking dish. Set the baking dish in the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare the batter ingredients while the butter is melting. Once the butter is melted in the oven, after 4-6 minutes, remove the baking dish.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk to incorporate evenly. Add the milk and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.
Pour the batter into the baking dish with the melted butter. There is no need to stir. Sprinkle the raspberries directly on top of the batter.
Bake in the preheated oven until the cobbler is golden and set in the middle, 45-55 minutes. Once baked, remove from the oven and cool 15 minutes before serving.
The baking dish does not need to be sprayed or greased for this recipe, which truly makes it even more easy! When the butter is melted in the baking dish as the first step, it creates a naturally greased surface that will allow the cobbler to be scooped out easily.
When pouring the batter into the melted butter in the baking dish, there is no need to mix the two together. As the cobbler bakes, the butter and batter will combine and envelop the raspberries that were sprinkled on top.
