Fruit Cobbler

Submitted by: COOKANDRUN

Introduction

Fresh summer stone fruits and a high-fiber, whole-grain crust. I made up this recipe to get rid of some of the overabundance of fruit I got from my local farmer's market. Any combination of stone fruits (peaches, plums, necatrines, cherries) or berries would work wonderfully. Fresh summer stone fruits and a high-fiber, whole-grain crust.

Ingredients

    Approx 2 cups of summer fruits and berries (cherries, blueberries, apricots, nectarines, peaches, etc - your choices). 1 cup dry oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar + 1 tblsp brown sugar, 1/2 stick butter

Directions

This is a very "lax" recipe - all serving amounts are approximate, as it was created to deal with unexpected overabundances of summer fruits and berries. If you want to make it smaller, or larger, or with more crumb topping - go for it. If you want to add more or less butter or sugar, that works too! And though I use gluten-free oats for the cobbler topping, flour-based or biscuit-style toppings could also be used. I've even made a batch with ground up cereal!

Slice and dice up nectarines and apricots. Pit cherries (if using) and split into halves. Rinse and toss in any berries you will also be using. Mix the fruit with a spoonful of the brown sugar and set aside to allow the sugars to begin macerating the fruit.

In another bowl, break up the cold butter with the oats and remaining sugar. Mix it with your hands until the butter is soft and fully incorporated with the oats and sugar. The mixture should be granulated and no chunks of butter should remain. It will feel sandy and slightly damp.

Put the fruit in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, and sprinkle the cobbler topping over it. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until fruit bubbles and topping browns. Very good with low-fat vanilla ice cream or a sorbet!

  • Do you just sprinkle brown sugar or is there a flour or biscuit mixture you put in it? - 7/22/10

    The first spoonful of sugar is just mixed in with the fruit to allow it to start macerating. For the topping all I do is just use the oats, brown sugar and butter and mix them together. I don't use flour in the topping or with the fruit.
