Cook the Cover: Canadian Living August 2014
What should you do with all that time? Make more fruit cobblers to eat!
This blueberry dessert can be easily whipped up, but don't skip on the "something extras." The ground ginger adds a surprising punch of flavour and the cornmeal gives it a nice crunch. However, I do think that the almond extract could go. Maybe it was the extract I used, but I found it too overpowering.
Blueberry Cornmeal Cobbler
Shopping List: fresh blueberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, almond extract, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, baking powder, ground ginger, baking soda, salt, butter, and buttermilk.
The fruit does shrink when it's being baked! So don't worry about filling up the ramekins a bit more. The height will eventually sink in.
The crumble can be mixed by hand! No need for a stand mixer here. The crumble is also designed to spread, so don't worry about flattening it over the fruit mixture. The mounds will level itself out when it's in the hot oven.
As I said before, bake these with a sheet pan underneath to catch any bubbling goodness that spills over!
