I decided to make a Apple-Blackberry Cobbler with some healthier options. Below is the basic recipe – what you see in red is the substitutions I made to make it less fattening/calorie loaded. The taste is fresh, you taste fruit, not SUGAR and it’s a great dessert for the entire family.
• 1/4 cup butter, softened
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour (wheat flour)
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup milk (non-fat milk)
• 2 cups blackberries
• 1 cup diced apples (peeled and cored)
• 1/2 cup sugar (1/8 cup)
• sugar for sprinkling on top
Cream butter and 1/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with the milk; beat until smooth (added ¼ c. more milk or water to make more liquidy)
In a separate bowl, combine blackberries, apples, and 1/2 cup sugar (1/8 cup sugar)
Put fruit mixture in a buttered (non-fat cooking spray) 9-inch round cake pan.
Pour batter over the fruit. Sprinkle with a little sugar.(1/16 cup sugar)
Bake at 375° for 45 to 50 minutes. (Bake on HIGH for 25 minutes in NuWave Oven)
|Pre-Baking (in the NuWave Oven)|
|After Baking in the NuWave Oven|
Option: Serve with cream or ice cream. (Serve with non-fat ice cream or frozen yogurt). Best if served warm.
Time Saving Tip: While the cobbler is baking, clean up your cooking mess and don't let the dishes pile up, so you can enjoy the rest of your day!
Live and Run Strong,
