This cobbler has proven to be popular among Menu Mailer users, as it is egg free. I originally used it as a Menu Mailer dessert recipe, but I occasionally use it for breakfast when we have an over-abundance of fruit. The topping becomes completely firm while baking, even though it’s liquid when you add it.
From the Menu Mailer
1 Tbs yogurt or kefir (coconut or dairy-based)
1 cup flour of your choice (I used sorghum)
4 cups firm fruit, such as peach/apple/pear/apricot, peeled and cubed
1 cup soft fruit, such as berries or nectarines, cubed if needed
1/3 cup + 2 Tbs rapadura (more if your fruit is tart)
1 tsp cornstarch (use organic to minimize potential GMO exposure)
¼ cup tapioca starch if gluten free, or additional wheat flour
½ tsp xanthan gum if using gluten free flours
1¾ tsp baking powder
Heaping ½ tsp salt
½ cup coconut oil or butter, melted
In a medium bowl, combine the kefir or yogurt with enough water to make 1 cup and whisk in the flour. Cover and allow to stand 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously grease a 12×8 baking dish or another shallow, 2-quart casserole dish. Add the fruit, 1/3 cup rapadura and cornstarch. Stir to combine and set aside.
Whisk the remaining 2 Tbs rapadura, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt into the soaked flour, being careful that the xanthan and baking powder don’t clump. Whisk in the oil. Pour the batter over the fruit. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and firm.
