Blueberry Cobbler-Breakfast of Champions
We couldn't resist the big box of luscious blueberries at our favorite store. I thought we needed to have immediate dessert and I haven't perfected my wheatless pie crust yet, so a cobbler was the logical choice. Of course you could use any berry. If you use tarter berries you might have to bump up how much sugar goes in the filling, but with the blueberries the sweetness is just right.
1 Tablespoon potato starch (if you're not allergic to corn, you could use corn starch)
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C water
3 C blueberries or other fruit
1 C flour mixture (I used 1/2 C potato starch, 1/4 C teff flour, and 1/4 C coconut flour)
1/2 C white sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 C milk
1/4 C melted butter
Mix first three ingredients, add fruit. Cook and stir until mixture thickens. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Stir dry ingredients together, add milk and butter. Spoon over fruit and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serves 6-8.
We always try to justify eating lovely desserts like this by having them for breakfast. A great way to start the day. It's very good with ice cream if you can do dairy.
