Guava Cobbler

Just hearing the word cobbler gets me drooling, lol! My husband suggested the guava cobbler, (I had originally planned on doing a peach cobbler, but I had no peaches). This cobbler was done with canola oil, because I was out of butter. Result – not bad, not bad at all.

  • 1 – 16 oz can guava shells (in syrup)
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • *1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

*If you don’t plan on using the syrup from the guava shells then you would need additional sugar and maybe a bit more liquid.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Drain syrup from guava shells and set aside.
  3. Roughly chop shells and place in a bowl, add a sprinkle of cinnamon and set aside.
  4. Sift flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl, add remaining dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Add milk, guava syrup and oil, beat until smooth.
  6. Pour batter in a greased pan.
  7. Spoon guava on top of batter.
  8. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

You may serve your cobbler with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
