Since we toured around Williamsburg, VA and Washington, D.C. recently, I’ve had an insatiable affinity for apple pie and cherry cobbler.
I know, I know, so cliche, right? Well, I can’t help myself!
The apple pie served at Shield’s Tavern in Williamsburg is enough to make anyone fall in love with apple pie, even if they never thought they liked apples! But, I decided that I liked my own cherry cobbler more than the I ordered during this trip. Nothing against the restaurant that I ordered the cherry cobbler, it’s just I prefer my own cobbler.
Since we walked a bajillion miles a day seeing all of the sites we can pack into the day, I decided to keep the momentum going and lighten up the calories a bit in my cobbler. Now, I wasn’t about to fool around with the amount of butter in the recipe, but sugar? Yeah, I knew just the trick where that was concerned. I thought it would be the perfect time to use a new sweetener for baking that I’ve been enjoying in my coffee for the last week, NECTRESSE™Sweetener.
Simple Cherry Cobbler Recipe
A simple recipe for homemade cherry cobbler.
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup Nectresse or 1 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 cups cherries, pitted
- 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Melt butter in a baking dish.
- Mix together flour, sugar and milk and pour over melted butter. Do not stir.
- Pour cherries over other ingredients.
- Do not stir as batter will bubble up through fruit to create a cobbler crust.
- Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes.
- Remove from oven and serve warm.
Have you heard of Nectresse? It’s a new 100% natural sweetener made from monk fruit from the makers of Splenda. It has zero calories and has all of the sweetness of sugar without the calories. If you are like me, you’ve never heard of the monk fruit. I was happy to learn that the monk fruit is a small green melon that has grown in remote mountain regions in Asia for hundreds of years.
Lisa Ling, who has a family history of diabetes, has made a video explaining more about Nectresse that I think you’ll enjoy.
