Plum Cobbler With Buttermilk Crust
- 1. Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl, mix the plums, 1/4 c of sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until combined. Spoon into a 1 1/2 - 2 quart ceramic or glass baking dish. Set aside.
- 2. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 1/2 c sugar. Add the buttermilk and melted butter, and mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
- 3. Using a large spoon, dollop the batter onto the plums. (Don't worry about covering the entire surface - the batter will spread when it bakes.)
- 4. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until the cobbler topping is golden and set. Remove from the oven, and immediately sprinkle the top with 1 teaspoons sugar. Serve warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
