Plum Cobbler

Love apple cobbler, what about peach? Then try this variation today!

3/4 cups sugar
7 plums, sliced (~4 cups)
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
1/4 cup milk

1. Mix first four ingredients together and place in an 8 x 8 square pan.
2. Mix the next four ingredients together in a separate bowl. Cut the butter into the dry mix using your hands or a hand mixer so the mixture is crumbly and the butter is in pea-sized pieces.
3. Add the 1/4 cup milk and mix together with a wooden spoon. Drop the batter on top of the plum mixture in the 8 x 8 square pan.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes*.

*Since plums are in season during the summer, you can consider using the toaster oven for this recipe. It is much more efficient and it doesn't heat up the house. However, consider adding a few extra minutes to the baking time.
