3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp cane sugar (can reduce to 1/2 cup for a more tart cobbler)
4 cups of seeded and sliced fresh Harvest Haven plums, 10-18 plums, depending on the size of the plums
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 Harvest Haven egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar, plums, cornstarch, orange zest, and cinnamon. Place the fruit mixture in a 2-quart casserole.
In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter in with a fork, pastry blender, or your (clean) hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and egg until just moistened (do not overmix).
Drop the batter in large spoonfuls onto the fruit mixture. Bake in a 350°F oven for 35 minutes, until the cobbler topping is nicely browned and the filling is bubbly.
