Plum Cobbler

19 Jun

I had a bunch of plums from Bountiful Baskets this past weekend that were getting a little overripe.  I debated between using them in a crisp, like my favorite Apple Crisp, or trying something more like a cobbler.  I decided on trying out cobbler, just to have something new.  This actually turned out pretty good!  I think I maybe could have cooked it about 5 minutes longer to bake up the cobbler part more, but it still tastes good as it is.  And, really pretty easy to make.

 

Plum Cobbler

What you need:

12 plums, about 1.5 – 2 pounds, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cup sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Put butter in a 2 qt (8×8) baking dish.  Place dish in oven until butter melts.  Remove dish from oven.

In a bowl, mix together 1 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt.  Pour in milk and stir well.  Pour batter mixture over the melted butter in the baking dish.

Spoon chopped plums over the batter in the baking dish.  Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until cobbler is browned and bubbling.

Best served warm with vanilla ice cream.
