This recipe has been one of the most requested and most loved dessert recipes I have used in the menu mailer. I have modified it here to be more budget-friendly and usable for breakfast.
Total meal cost $1.80, 60 cents a serving
1/3 cup flour of your choice (16 cents calculated at $2/pound for whole grain, home ground)
1 cup minus 2 Tbs water
2 Tbs yogurt (15 cents at 89 cents for 6 ounces)
Fruit of your choice, sliced (I use 2 bananas, 33 cents at 50 cents a pound)
3 eggs, beaten (75 cents at $3/dz)
2-3 tbsp rapadura, depending on the sweetness of your fruit (20 cents for 3 Tbs)
1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract (20 cents for commercially purchased, less for homemade)
1/4 tsp salt (1 cent)
The night before, whisk together the flour, water and yogurt in a medium bowl. Cover and allow to sit overnight.
Preheat oven to 375°F and oil a 9″ round glass or ceramic baking dish or pie pan. Scatter fruit evenly in a single layer on the bottom of the pan and set aside. In the bowl with the flour mixture, whisk in the eggs, sweetener, extract and salt. The batter will be thin. Pour the batter over the fruit and bake 25 to 35 minutes or until sides are puffed and golden and center is just set. Serve warm or at room temperature- it will collapse as it cools.
