Plum Cobbler Recipe

If I had a dollar for every plum on my tree out back……well, I could at least buy a few new summer outfits! The tree exploded with ripe fruit and I picked over 150 plums this weekend. Not to mention there is three times that still left on the tree and I sadly threw away about that many that have already fallen on the ground. I took some to share at work, I’ll give some to family and neighbors, and yet my counters are still overflowing with bowls of plums. I went searching for recipes to use my plums before they start fermenting into wine (hmmm, there is any idea). The first one I found, a plum cobbler, sounded yummy and easy- just my style. And it definitely lived up to my expectations. It’s too good not to share. This cobbler is sweet but still could have used some vanilla ice cream melting over it. Oh well, next time. But if you have a prolific plum tree or just like plums, keep this recipe handy.

From Simply Recipes


  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp of white sugar (I think you could use less, it’s sweet!)
  • 10 fresh plums sliced and seeded – about 4 cups
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 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 egg, lightly beaten


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup white sugar, plums, cornstarch 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 or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and egg until just moistened.
