  • 1 ½ pounds fresh cherries pitted and halved (about 5 cups)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into 6 pieces
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar or granulated sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk whole milk is best


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the cherries, granulated sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch in a large bowl and stir to combine. Set aside for a few minutes to allow the cherries to release some of their juices.
  • Meanwhile, place the butter in an 8x8-inch or 9x9-inch baking dish. Put the dish in the oven to melt the butter. This will take 4-7 minutes. Once melted, remove the pan with the butter from the oven.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the white whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the milk until just combined. Pour the batter into the baking dish, on top of the butter. Do not stir.
  • Stir the cherry mixture once more and then pour it on top of the batter/butter. Do not stir.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, until the filling is bubbly and the topping is light golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

To make this cherry cobbler in the slow cooker:

  • Follow directions above, except cut the butter into 8 pieces and scatter over the bottom of the slow cooker (no need to melt).
  • Pour the batter on top of the butter pieces, followed by the fruit mixture. Do not stir. Cover and cook on high setting for 2 ½ hours.


  • You can use other types of fruits in this recipe. Try blueberries, blackberries, peaches or pears!
  • You can use frozen cherries (or other frozen fruits) in this cobbler recipe.
  • The recipe calls for using half white whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. You can use only white whole wheat or only all purpose. Just be sure to use 1 cup of flour total.
