Sour Cherry Cobbler




I live in Michigan and we have sour cherry grown in abundance. I went to whole foods the other day and i saw mounds of these grown by local farmers.. so i went ahead and got lots of them to snack on and make this cobbler. To be honest i was not a great fan of pitting them tho.. that was a royal pain..

For the cobbler you need:

Ingredients

Cherry Part:

Cherry - 2 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cup
All purpose flour - 1 tbls
Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp. (optional..i love cardamom)

Cobbler Part? :

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Unsalted butter - 1/4 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup (this event is sugar high fridays right ;)
Milk - 8 oz (i used 1% organic milk)- can sub with soy too

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. Melt the butter in a pan. Add in flour,baking powder,sugar, milk and whisk to a smooth batter.

3. Mix the cherries,sugar,flour and cardamom powder lightly.

4. Pour the batter in 4 individual serving dishes (i used mini loaf pans - actually they were not too mini!), and spooned the cherries on top.

5. Bake for 50 minutes and when it cools down serve it with ice-cream if you want to go nuts!

to avoid pitting them - add them in seeds and all, then bake your cobbler, take it, sit in your bathtub, and have a seed spitting competition. the one who spits it farthest wins. yeah, we're lazy.

Rajitha said...

asha - thnx.. i love cobblers too, i should chk out the mango one..

richa- it is yum! he he i really have not tried peach and cardamom, but i think it will go well together...even cinnamon will..just give it a try and lemme know :)

thepassionatecook said...

what a great idea to add cardamom... it's a recent discovery for me, but i really like it. if only i could find sour cherries here, i haven't had them in ages!

This cobbler is just fantastic! This is just enough to keep me busy in the kitchen, again. I am planning to try this on my kid's birthday next month. Cherry sounds so tasty.
