Plum Cobbler

I have been getting quite a few plums in my bountiful basket the past few weeks, and even though I love plums, sometimes I forget I have them. And so, I have a few dozen plums I need to really start what better way to use them, then in a dessert?  I based my recipe of of this one, adapted it for our diet and made adjustments for consistency, etc.  It turned out amazing, I never realized how delicious cooked plums are...I think this may be my breakfast in the morning. :)

Plum Cobbler

3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
12 fresh plums, peeled, sliced and seeded (~4 or so cups)
2 tablespoons corn starch
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup gluten free flour blend
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dairy-free margarine
1/3 cup dairy-free milk
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350F.  In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar, plums, cornstarch and cinnamon. Place the fruit mixture in a 8X8 baking dish.

In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar, flour blend, baking powder and salt. Cut the margarine in with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and egg until well combined.  It should be slightly sticky.

Spread batter over fruit. Bake in a 350°F oven for 35 minutes. Top with dairy-free ice cream.
