A warm and aromatic plum cobbler, made just a bit healthier. This healthy dessert recipe uses less sugar than most cobblers I've seen, and I also used half spelt, half plain flour. I use plums here, but other autumn fruits - apples, pears - would work a treat!
Sprinkle the top of the cobbler with a little extra demerara sugar before baking. Add freshly grated nutmeg to the plums or the topping to taste. Serve on its own or with Greek yoghurt, custard, creme fraiche, mascarpone or vanilla ice cream.
This was such a yummy cobbler and no one thought it tasted 'healthy'! I served it with Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of honey. I did reduce the sugar sprinkled over the plums, as my plums were already over ripe and sweet enough. The cobbler bit was delicious as well, surprisingly fluffy for spelt. Thanks for the recipe! - 08 Sep 2015
