Chef Leslie's Classic Cobbler
In this cobbler recipe, the batter puffs up around the fruit, creating a light, fluffy, cakey top and a gooey base. The buttermilk batter makes the perfect foil for sweet summer fruit! For you planners, you can make this batter up to 2 days before using it!

I served this at a summer BBQ, and it was the perfect end to a great meal. People raved and said that it didn't taste gluten-free (the highest compliment of Gluten People). It disappeared in a flash. I followed the recipe exactly, except that it wasn't even close to being done at 35 minutes baking time -- it was golden brown on top, but still sloshy throughout. I covered the top with foil and ended up baking it another half hour for a total of 1 hour and 5 minutes bake time.
