Dinner Confession
So, I must confess...we ate Nectarine Cobbler (with a little fresh ground nutmeg!)for dinner tonight. Don't judge us! I can totally justify it though. I mean, come on. It has some whole grains, milk (Lactaid) and nectarines. The So Delicious was just a bonus. Try to argue with that. It was so good too! I am one of those fortunate people that taking the Lactaid pills does not work for me. It only postpones the inevitable! For some reason though, I can "drink" Lactaid milk. I use the word "drink" loosely because I really don't drink it. Like I have mentioned before, I never really drank milk. I just don't care for the taste of it. Lactaid milk is about as close to the taste of real milk that you can find and it still has a bit of a sweeter flavor. So, I use it in everything I cook when I need milk because the flavor is close enough to the real thing without causing questions from the others!

So, I went to the store and nectarines were on sale. I am such a whore to sales at the grocery store. I can always justify buying food on sale (maybe I get that from my mother-in-law)! When I was unloading the groceries, the illustrator said ooh how about a cobbler for dinner! I could not refuse, so in about 5 minutes I whipped up some "old fashioned bowls of goodness" and in 25 minutes we were eatin' the good stuff! I, of course have tweaked the old recipe for "a cup, a cup, a cup". We love this recipe and you can use whatever you have on hand in the way of fruit(fresh, frozen, canned). I use frozen berries a lot for it too! My favorite is a mix of blackberries and raspberries. If you try something really different, let me know so we can add it to our mix!

Fruit Cobbler
(4 servings)
1 cup Self Rising Flour (I used 3/4 cup SR Flour and 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour with 1/4 tsp baking powder)
2/3 cup sugar (or 1/3 cup Splenda Blend for Baking)
1 cup Lactaid milk (I use fat free)
1 cup fruit
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 inch square pan with no stick spray. You can also use oven safe bowls for individual servings.

Whisk flour, sugar, vanilla and milk together. Pour mixture into the prepared pans. Sprinkle fruit over the batter. Bake between 20 to 40 minutes depending on how big the dish(es) are you are using. You can easily double this recipe!

Nectarine Cobbler with sugar = 376 calories
Nectarine Cobbler with Splenda blend = 216 calories

    I've never done a true cobbler - just crips with oatmeal. Can I replace some of the flour with oats, and if so in what ratio? I am so on this with apples tonight!

    I have never tried it, but this is what I would do...try exchanging out 1/4 to a 1/3 cup of oats for the flour. Make sure to add the baking powder so it will puff some. Also, make sure you slice the apple thin and I would microwave them for a couple of minutes. I would add a little unsweetened applesauce to the apples to add a little more moisture to the cobbler(if you have it or cook the apples down a little more). Let me know how it turns out! Now I want to make some!
