Fresh Fig Cobbler (Easy)
First, pick 4-5 cups (1 quart) of ripe figs.
Trim off the stems. Those figs that are not overly ripe can be cut into halves.
Add 1/2 cup white granulated sugar to the prepared figs and let macerate in the fridge for an hour or two.
Then plop the sweetened figs into a crockpot, set it on High, and cook for 1 hour.
Stir the fruit a couple of times to make sure all figs cook evenly.
While the figs are cooking down, prepare the cobbler mixture.
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1 quart fruit (in this case figs)
Dash of salt
1/3 cup (5 1/3 tablespoons) butter, melted in baking dish
Melt butter (if salted butter, skip the dash of salt) in baking dish in 375 F oven. ( Do not burn!)
Mix sugar, flour, baking powder, and milk into a batter.
Pour batter into melted butter.
Add 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger into cooked figs.
Pour figs into baking dish on top of batter. No need to stir!
Bake 25-35 minutes. Be sure batter is done.
Enjoy the cobbler served warm with ice cream or whipped cream or even cold.
(This is my favorite Cobbler recipe. Try blackberries or canned peaches, if you are not a fig fan! I have read that this recipe is called Green Hills Quick Cobbler.)
