Plum Peachy Cobbler For BSI

This week's BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient) is being hosted by Healthy. Delicious. and the secret ingredient is plums!

I decided to make this yummy cobbler for my entry.



I have to be honest here, I have never made anything with plums. I always just eat them the way they are.

I chose to use Sugar Plums in this cobbler.



You will need just a few things for this recipe.
  • 2 lbs. of Sugar Plums (about 12)
  • 3-4 peaches


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn starch or 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp lemon extract
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk



First you will need to seed and slice the plums and peel, seed, and slice the peaches. In a large bowl combine the fruit, 3/4 cup sugar, lemon juice, lemon extract, and corn starch. Stir to combine.

Next, Combine the Flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Cut the butter in. Add the egg and milk and mix well.

Place the fruit mixture into an 8 inch glass baking dish.



Top with flour mixture like so.



Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes until fruit is nice and bubbly and topping is golden brown.



The plums in this were so fabulous. I don't know why I haven't tried them in a recipe until now. I also really enjoyed the lemon flavor in this.


Have a wonderful weekend!

I just bought plums, wondered what to do with them. Kim, this looks fabulous! We can't get decent pages so I may have to use frozen, but I want to make this.

YUM YUM!!

I haven't cooked with plums either. The combination with peaches sounds juicy and delicious! I'll have to give it a try.

YUMMMMMM - I've never made anything with plums either! I'm making the Trailblazin' Muffins today when I get off the computer. I don't have the authentic trail mix from your dad's company, but I have a fake for the time being from the grocery store. That chicken manicotti keeps calling my name, too. Thanks for making me fat! HA HA

I do make a small quantity of plum jam each year, but I must say this really caught my eye. It really looks delicious. Now if I love cobbler and have plums what could keep me from doing this? Laziness is not an excuse, so this moves to the dessert portion of tonight's dinner. I'll let you know how how I do.

Cathy said...

Yum! Plums are my second favourite summer fruit (other than cherries) and I usually just make pie with it. I may have to give this a try.

MaRiN said...

Mmmm, cobbler! Cobbler is so delicious year round. I just had apple blackberry cobbler yesterday. Yum.

burpandslurp said...

A total winner in my book! Plums as cobbler? Awesome!

Joanne said...

This actually looks insanely delicious! You are the plum master and you didn't even know it.

Kathy B! said...

This looks delicioius. I've never baked with plums before either. If the stupid critters hadn't eaten all my precious peaches I could have used them in this recipe...

MaRyA said...

yummy indeed! gotta try this! I wonder if this recipe will work with apples too?

Marta said...

I'm the same way with fruits, I hardly ever bake with them because I eat them on their own. I almost feel like it's a sacrifice to "give them up" to a baked good.
But this cobbler looks worthy of the sacrifice!
