You're probably familiar with the style of American cobblers that top sweetened fruit with a cake, biscuit, or other pastry dough. This one's a little different, and I like it better. Here, a pancake-like batter goes on the bottom of the pan and the fruit is strewn over the top. In the oven, the fruit bakes into the batter, melding the two perfectly.
