For the fellow plum-lovers...

This plum cobbler was an impulsive happily
turned out to to be the most fantastic marriage of tartness and sweetness.
Taken from


3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp of white sugar
10 fresh plums, sliced and seeded - about 4 cups
2 Tbsp corn starch
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup white sugar, plums, cornstarch and cinnamon. Place the fruit mixture in a 2-quart casserole. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter in with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and egg until just moistened. Drop batter on fruit, or if desired, spread batter in stripes. Bake in a 350°F oven for 35 minutes.
Serves 6. Serve with whipped cream (optional).
