TWD: Johnny Cake Cobbler, with a dash of cranberries
2 tbsp Orange Vanilla Sugar or 1 tbsp Xylitol.
1/2 tbsp Russian Mulling Spice
6 tree frut - peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, apples, pears or an assortment of each
1 cup cranberries (or 1/2 cup craisins) ((or 1 cup blueberries, mulberries, raspberries, blackberries, you get the idea))
1 package Corn Muffin/Bread Mix (or your own favorite)
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 cup Soy Cream
1 tbsp Local Honey
Pit and slice fruit. I like to keep the skins on, you don't have to.
Roast fruit for 30 minutes at 425f in a cast iron skillet or greased baking dish.
Combine cornbread mix and honey.
Add coconut oil and work in with a pastry blender until you have the consistency of tiny pebbles.
Add cream and combine.
If the mixture is dry, add more cream. You want a moist dough.
Spoon the dough on top of fruit.
It should not be even, rather an imperfect, craggy top.
Bake at 350f for 20+ minutes, until the tops are nicely browned.
Expect the fruit to bubble up through the cracks in the dough.
To avoid a mess, bake on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet.
Cold nights on the maritime coast call for a fruit filled bowl of something that resembles pie. It might be called Pandowdy or Slump, the result is often prettier than the name.
