Preheat oven to 375*f. Melt butter in large baking pan, set aside. This can be done in the preheating oven. Set fruit and sugar to medium heat in large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 5 minutes.
Mix dry ingedients, stir in milk. Pour this batter into the baking dish. Drop fruit in by spoonfuls (or a small measuring cup) placing it evenly around the pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown and set.
~Canned pie filling may be used in place of fresh fruit and sugar. Great with cherry pie filling. Serve with Half N Half or ice cream.
