Homemade Fruit Cobbler
4 cups fruit of choice (berries, apples, cherries, peaches)
1/4 cup cornstarch dissolved with 1/2 cup water
½ cup warm water
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon dry yeast
2 tablespoons oat flour
1 cup + 3 tablespoons organic whole wheat flour
1 cup organic unbleached white flour, or organic whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup cold-pressed oil
1/2 cup warm water
To thicken fruit, place fruit with its juice into pot and heat. (If fruit doesn’t have juice, add 2-3 tablespoons of fruit juice concentrate.) Let it come to gentle boil and slowly stir in dissolved cornstarch, trying to make sauce as thick as pie filling. cook a few seconds more after desired thickness. Remove from heat .
Mix water, honey, and yeast together. Let set for five minutes or until the yeast is dissolved.
Combine flours and salt in a large bowl.
Rub the oil into the flour with your hands.
Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture along with a ½ cup warm water. Mix together into a soft dough that holds together. Pat the ball of dough out on a floured surface until it is about one inch thick or a little less.
Cut with a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass or empty can. Next, pour the thickened fruit into an 8” square baking dish so it is ¾” full and place the biscuits on top.
Let the biscuits rise for 20 minutes in a warm place. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
