Cherry Cobbler Upside Down (or How to Take Care of Sick Husbands)

As I mentioned before, The Husband is officially sick with Da Sickness plaguing so many of our friends (despite their protests of not being ALL THAT SICK at all)... So, he was craving stuff last night something fierce. One of the items was "something cobbler-like" (whispered on that tentative voice with questionmarks all over it that tends to make you all misty-eyed)...SO I made the cobbler below, and it was properly consumed in two sittings last night, while watching Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar (brown is fine, just pack it down)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1/4 cup (4 TBSP.) butter, melted, warm
1/2 cup milk at room temperature
1 tsp. salt
dash of cinnamon
1 lb. bag frozen dark cherries, slightly thawed in microwave for 1 minute on 30% power

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease one 9-inch round cake pan (can use nonstick cooking spray, butter or sunflower oil).
In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking powder. Pour in melted butter, add egg and milk. Whisk together with medium whisk until ingredients are well combined and lumps disappear.
Pour batter into cake pan. Scatter cherries on top.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until tootpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
Serve warm, spooning out of the pan.
This would work well with other fruits, such as peaches (fresh or frozen), or berries (blackberries or raspberries would be awesome).
