Pear Cobbler

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"A rustic batter is dropped onto fresh pears before being baked for a healthier dessert. Using less sugar than most recipes I've seen, the crisp flavor of the pears is highlighted. My family and I enjoy this at breakfast. I leave 1 or 2 of the pears unpeeled to add a bit of color."

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter a round 9x2-inch, 6-cup baking dish.
  2. Fill a large bowl halfway with water and add lemon juice. Peel all but 1 of the pears. Core and cut all the pears into eighths. Add pear slices to lemon water to keep them from browning.
  3. Combine egg and milk in a bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside.
  4. Whisk flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons cane sugar, and brown sugar together in a separate bowl. Use a fork to cut cold butter into flour mixture until it resemble pebbles.
  5. Drain pears and put into a bowl. Sprinkle with corn starch and 1/4 cup cane sugar; toss to coat.
  6. Pour milk-egg mixture into the flour mixture. Mix batter until just combined. Add pears to the prepared baking dish. Drop batter by spoonful onto the pears.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until browned on top, about 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Topping needs something more. It was not sweet enough for my taste. I topped with plain yogurt and maple syrup.
