This recipe uses frozen cherries, so it's great to make all year round! This is a sweet cobbler you can reduce the sugar slightly for a less sweeter taste. Although I have never tried it, I imagine that you could also make this using frozen or fresh blueberries.
- 4 cups frozen dark sweet cherries (can use 1 cup more)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar (can use 1 tablespoon)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces (no substitutes)
- 2⁄3 cup buttermilk
- Set oven to 400 degrees (oven rack to second-lowest position).
- Butter a 9-inch glass baking dish.
- To make filling: cook all the filling ingredients in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar begins to dissolve (about 3-4 minutes).
- Spoon the filling into prepared baking dish.
- To make the topping: in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Blend in the cold butter using your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Stir in buttermilk with a fork JUST until combined (do not overmix!).
- Drop the dough in mounds over the filling, leaving space between the mounds.
- Lightly sprinkle sugar over the dough.
- Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the topping id golden brown and the fruit is bubbling.
- Cool slightly and serve warm.
Four cups of cherries was not enough so I added frozen strawberries to pie plate. Poured cooked cherries over the strawberries. Instead of making the topping, I thawed a pie crust and butter both sides and randomly placed over the fruit. After baking for 25 minutes, I sprinkled a little sugar over the crust and baked for 5-7 minutes longer. Family loved it.
I added vanilla and some oats to the topping... seemed a bit dry when I first ate it... that's cause I added the oats... when it cooled off it was much better. The kids and hubby loved it so I am giving it a 4 star. Great for breakfast!
Good, basic recipe. I had use up 2 bags of frozen cherries that had thawed by the time I'd gotten home from the store. I didn't have enough, so added 2+ cups of frozen peaches to the mix. My guess is, as long as you have between 4-6 cups of any frozen fruit, this will work. I cut the sugar by half and replaced it with Splenda. And I used whole wheat flour, which is the only stuff I've got. I might try adding a little bit of quick oats to the topping, as we ate it for breakfast this morning. Baked it in a 7.5X11" glass pan.
