Home Made Cherry Cobbler Recipe Ingredients:
2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoon cornmeal
15 ounce frozen packed cherries, pitted dark, unsweetened
3 tablespoon all purpose flour
¼ cup orange juice, fresh
4 teaspoon butter, frozen
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoon milk, reduced fat or fat free
¾ teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoon frozen or refrigerated egg product
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, ground or allspice, ground
Ice cream for garnish, low fat
- Thoroughly thaw the egg product if it is frozen before proceeding. Combine cherries, cornstarch and orange juice in medium sauce pan for the filling. Let this mixture stand for about 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit. Stir all the white colored powders together for the biscuit topping, that are – all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, cornmeal, salt and ground nutmeg or allspice. Cut in the frozen butter in the flour mixture with the help of a pastry blender until it resembles coarse bread crumbs. In this cornmeal mixture make a well in the center and leave this mixture aside.
- Over medium heat cook the filling mix (cherries, orange juice and cornstarch mixture) until it gets bubbly and thickened. Stir occasionally. Grease 4 individual baking dish or 4, 10 ounce custard cups and divide this filling equally among them.
- Stir the low fat milk and thawed egg product together in a small bowl and add this mixture in the center of the cornmeal mixture all at once. Stir the mixture well with the help of a fork until it is well moistened. Do not let this mixture stand. Spoon it immediately on top of the hot filling on a mound of the biscuit topping in each baking dish or custard cups. Place the baking dish or the custard cups in the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center of the custard cup or baking dish; if the topping comes out clean then consider the dish done. Remove from the oven and let it stand for few minutes. Serve warm with a small serving of low fat ice cream. This recipe makes 4 servings.
- You may use water instead of fresh orange juice if availability is a problem. But adding orange juice will not only give a tangy touch to this recipe but will also help to increase the vitamin C content of the recipe.
- To make this recipe diabetes friendly substitute sugar with any natural or artificial sweetener. If you intend to use sweetened and bottled orange then substitute that with water too.
