What's In Your Oven?

Apricot Cobbler

Plum Cobbler

Plum, Nectarine, Apricot, Blueberry, Cherry

These are the easy fruits to work with, just pit and slice. Although cherries are a bit more work, they are so worth it. Serve it to the queen when she comes.

Peaches are also worth the peeling and the pitting. The queen will give you recomendation on this one as well.

If there is not official royality around, I guarantee your family will think you devine
Now, are they not more important anyway??!!!!

~~~~~The Cobbler~~~~~
3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp of white sugar

10 fresh plums or more (I use Santa Rosa, but any plums will do), sliced and seeded - about 4 cups

2 Tbsp corn starch

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butterat room temperature

1/4 cup buttermilk

1 egg, lightly beaten
A splash of Almond Extract is also a nice addition

~~~~~Preheat oven to 350°F.~~~~~~

In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup white sugar, plums, cornstarch and cinnamon.
Place the fruit mixture in a 2-quart casserole.
In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut the butter in with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. If butter is at room temperature, your fingers work it up in a snap.
Stir in the milk and egg until just moistened.
Drop batter on fruit using an ice cream scoop.
Bake in a 350°F oven for 35 minutes.
Serves 6. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream
