1. Coat a 13 x 9-inch pan well with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Prepare the filling by combining the cut fruit in a large mixing bowl
with the sugar, flour, cinnamon and zest. Mix together well and pour
into prepared pan.
3. Place the oven rack in position 1. Select Bake at 350°F for 35
4. Once preheated, place pan with filling into the oven.
5. While the fruit is baking, prepare the topping. Place the flour, sugar,
baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and orange zest in
the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade.
Process dry ingredients together for about 10 seconds to sift.
6. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients and pulse together
until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
7. Combine the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add the buttermilk
mixture by pulsing until ingredients are just combined.
8. Once the fruit has cooked, remove the pan from the oven. Scoop
the topping onto the fruit so that it is evenly spaced, leaving space
in between each scoop as the topping will expand quite a bit when
baked. It is not necessary for the fruit to be completely covered.
9. Select Bake again and set to 325°F for 45 minutes.
10. Cobbler is ready when the top is an even, deep golden and
completely baked through.
11. Serve warm with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
