I love cobblers, they are such a great southern style dessert. It's got just the right combo of fruit to cake, it makes them irresistible.The last cobbler was a peach and blueberry cobbler, this a plum. You can trade the stone fruits straight across and use the same recipe. Cobblers are such a simple dessert as well, it's one of the things I love about them.
Start by cutting the plums into wedges.
I like to fill it to the top of the pan. Sprinkle with sugar.
Pour batter over top of fruit.
I tap them down just a touch. You want it to fill in between the cracks of the fruit.
Bake until golden brown and fruit is tender. I love it warm, but will also take it cool over even chilled. It is great anyway you eat it.
Just remember, the recipe listed is for peaches, but you can add in any stone fruit or berry you choose.
- 4 cups dice plums. I split mine in half and then cut in quarters.
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour If you prefer, you can always use an all purpose or gluten free.
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar You can definitely use less if you want, ⅓-1/2 could still be good.
- 1 ½ cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Prepare 10 inch cast iron skillet. It's my favorite to bake cobblers in. If you don't have one, you can always just use a 10 inch cake pan. Butter or spray.Places plums in pan.In separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour over top of fruit. Sprinkle with about a tablespoon sugar. This step isn't necessary if you are trying to cut sugar, but I love the crunch it produces.Bake for about an hour. If you are using frozen berries like I did, bake a little longer. Allow it to cool or eat it right out of the oven. Either way, it is incredibly delicious!You can also eat it like it is, or serve it with ice cream or whip cream. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
