“An easy and tasty southern dessert. If you use fresh fruit instead of pie fillings, simply cut it up in bite size pieces if not using berries. This will be your go to dish for a quick idea when weeknights, covered dish invites, and holiday parties are calling. Bon Appetit”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter, unsalted
  • 2 cups self rising flour (I used Pillsbury)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg (optional)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • fresh fruit (enough fruit to cover the whole pan ) or canned pie filling (enough fruit to cover the whole pan )


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 13 by 9 pan ( I used Pyrex glass) with non stick cooking spray.
  3. Melt the butter, then pour evenly in pan.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and spices.
  5. Add milk to bowl and whisk til smooth, about 1 minute.
  6. Pour batter over top of butter in pan. It will be very loose and there is no need to stir it.

  8. Put pan on lower rack in preheated 350 degree oven and let bake til golden brown and batter is puffed over fruit.
