Recipe by: Wendy and Clayton
This is an original recipe my son and I created together. We incorporated some of our favorite fruits with our favorite healthy spelt bread.
We use a Victorio VKP1010 Apple and Potato Peeler we purchased on Amazon for $21.99 to quickly and efficiently core and peel the apples in our recipe. Please view our video for a demonstration.
4 pears (any kind you prefer)
4 apples (any kind you prefer)
10 oz. cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 C raisins
1 C maple syrup
2T Earth Balance Butter (or your favorite butter)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp vanilla
1 C toasted pecans (I toast the pecans for approximately 3-5 minutes at 300 degrees)
3 C spelt flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 packet (3 tsp.) dry yeast
1 3/4 C water
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Mix the bread first as you will need to set it aside to rise for approximately 20 minutes while you are preparing the rest of the recipe.
1. Add the yeast packet to the warm water and gently incorporate. Add the honey and set aside for at least 5 minutes.
2. Mix the spelt flour and sea salt.
3. Add the yeast mixture and stir gently, just until incorporated.
4. Pour into a greased 11 x 17 baking dish. (we use coconut oil to grease the dish).
5. Set aside in a warm place to rise while you prepare the fruit topping.
Now the fruit mixture:
1. Peel, core, and slice your apples and pears.
2. Add the butter to a large saute pan and melt over medium heat.
3. Add the sliced apples, pears and the cranberries and saute approximately 5 minutes.
4. Add the spices, raisins and toasted pecans, and maple syrup.
5. Saute a few more minutes.
6. Remove from heat and set aside for at least 10 minutes.
7. Pour the fruit mixture over the prepared bread mixture and spread evenly.
8. Place in preheated oven and bake approximately 35-45 minutes, until tester comes out clean.
This cobbler is delicious as is but whipped coconut milk adds even more flavor! Take one can of organic coconut milk and set in fridge overnight. Open can and remove the hardened milk cream. Discard the liquid. Whip the milk cream with a mixer. You can add a little maple syrup to sweeten it a bit, if you prefer.
