Easy Sourdough Fruit Cobbler with sugar-free options

I’m trying to stay away from sugar as my body doesn’t seem to like it very much and I’ve been incorporating a lot of sourdough into our meals so this was a creation I came up with.

Top it with some sugar-free caramel syrup and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious treat!

In the photo, I put the cobbler dough on top but it also works well if you want to spread the dough on the bottom of the pan first and put the fruit on top.

If you don’t have any sourdough on hand then you may want to check out my other Fruit Cobbler recipe.

This makes enough for an 8×8 pan.

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 1-2 c. fruit, chopped or sliced
  • 1/4-1/2 c. Monkfruit ( I like to use the golden for this recipe) or sugar or brown sugar

Dough batter:

  • ¼ c + 2 T all-purpose flour
  • ½ t. baking powder
  • ¼ t. baking soda
  • A good pinch of salt
  • 3 T. butter
  • ½ c. sourdough starter or discard

Topping: (optional)

  • 1 T. melted butter
  • 1 ½ t. Monkfruit or sugar

Optional toppings:

  • Ice cream
  • Caramel sauce
  • Whipped cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Place 3 T. butter in pan and set in the oven to melt.

Mix the fruit and sweetener together and set to side.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Mix well.

Add in the melted butter from the pan and the sourdough starter. Stir just until combined.

Add the fruit or batter to the pan and then add the other to the top.

Drizzle the butter on top, if desired and then sprinkle with sweetener.

Bake 30-45 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm or cold with ice cream and toppings, as desired.

All-Purpose Baking Blend

As many of you know we are on a healthy eating journey and I have been scouring the web for alternatives to many of our favorite recipes. The hardest thing for me was finding a baking blend that we liked. Many of the blends were either too expensive or just didn’t have a texture that everyone seemed to like.

After a little bit of trial and error, we have found a blend that works well for us and we have been testing this out with some of the Trim Healthy Mama recipes that call for their baking blend. This recipe has worked well for us so far but if I find anything that needs to be tweaked I will update the recipe. You may want to try making a half a batch when to give it a try before making the big batch that we make here. I also found this great container to hold my big batch. (You can also find it and most of the ingredients below at some Walmarts or just add them to your grocery pickup order so you don’t have to search for them.) 😉
