Don't doubt me... this will be the BEST cobbler you have ever had!
This is not crisp... this is cobbler. There are no oats or crunchy bits. There is the most amazing cakey goodness atop your fruit. Deliciousness. I got this recipe from my uncle's ex-wife. Most people thought she was crazy, but hey I am certainly not one to judge so we always got along fine ;) She was possibly the best home baker I have ever known. And that is saying something because, people, I take my baking real seriously!
Read the whole recipe first since I have broken the ingredients down within the instructions.
preheat your oven to 350 degrees
5 c (about) fruit, sliced or prepped (that's 5 med sized apples)
3 T - 4T brown sugar (depending on tartness of fruit)
3 T flour
6 -7 dashes cinnamon or about half as much nutmeg (or a mix of each)
combine the above ingredients in a 8" square glass dish (or similar) coating the fruit thoroughly.
in a separate bowl beat 1 egg
sift into the egg 1 c flour (and by sift I mean dump)
and 1 c white sugar
mix together with a fork until crumbly
pour egg mixture evenly on top of fruit mixture
melt 6 T butter and pour over the top of the cobbler. Do this slowly, you want to coat the entire surface with butter.
bake for 45 min in a hot 350 degree oven
makes 9 servings at 250 calories a piece (made with apples) .. that does not take into account the vanilla ice cream you will most certainly want with this!
This is unbelievably good made with plums (red plums being the best). I know that might seem unusual to some but it is fantastic... leave the plum skin on! But hey I got this out to you all a little late in the season for that.... go peel your apples!
Also as in all baked goods, unless otherwise specified, you should be using unsalted butter.
And yeah go ahead and click on that picture to see it in all its up close glory! :)
