This is a simple crisp style cobbler. It can be used with plums like I did, or if you are uninteresting, apples or peaches. Actually a lot of fruits would work, so experiment away (grapes or strawberries maybe?). It is made using a handful of ingredients you probably always have on hand and if you use a slice free fruit (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries) you will have it put together before your oven heats up! I call that a win.
12 plums, pitted and sliced (or enough fruit to fill an 8"x8" baking dish 3/4 full)
1/8 c. sugar (I like the tartness of plums. If you don't increase to 1/4 c.)
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt (if you do not like a little sweet/salty mix cut back to 1/2 tsp.)
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
Combine filling ingredients and pour into greased 8"x8" baking dish.
Combine sugars, flour, baking powder and salt.
Add egg and cut in until mixture looks like sand.
Sprinkle over the top of fruit in dish.
Drizzle melted butter over top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
