What is a Cobbler?

Cobbler is a dessert with fruit filling at the bottom of  a baking dish, covered in batter, biscuit, or dumpling before being baked.

What is a Crisp?

A Crisp is similar to a Cobbler but the topping on the fruit is crispier, crumble topping.  The topping is usually butter and sugar, with flour, or oats.

What is a Crumble?

A Crumble is a crisp without oats in the topping.  It may feature nuts, but it is usually a combination of butter, flour and sugar.  The topping tends to be more clumpy than a crisp.

What fruit is used in these cakes?

Cobblers, Crisps, Crumbles, Buckles, and Slumps- Why so many?  Maybe because they are easy, delicious, and versatile.  Part of that amazing variety comes from the many flavor choices of fruit.  You may select berries or stone fruit.  Great combinations can include berries like raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries mixed with a stone fruit like peaches, apples , apricots, or pears. Other delicious combinations include mixed berries, strawberries and rhubarb, or cranberry apple.  You may need to adjust the level of sugar based on the sweetness, or tartness of the fruit you choose.
