Peach and Berry Cobbler Recipe
|Peach and Berry Cobbler, with a topping made from whole wheat flour.|
It doesn’t take much time looking through the recipe archives over on the left to realize that I’m a lot more into salad than I am dessert. It was actually a savory dish that led me to this recipe. When Farmgirl posted her recipe for Savory Tomato Pesto Pie a while back, she mentioned that she had been reading The Sonoma Diet Book and it had a good recipe for Peachy Berry Cobbler. I was interested, since one of the desserts I do love is peach cobbler and since the recipe uses whole wheat flour, which is a “good carb” for South Beach dieters. Farmgirl offered to send me the recipe, and I took her up on it.
Peach and Berry Cobbler
(6-8 servings, adapted from The Sonoma Diet Book, with thanks to Farmgirl for sharing the recipe.)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. ground ginger or cinnamon (I used ginger)
1/8 tsp. salt
2 T butter
1/3 cup plain fat-free yogurt (I used 4 oz. low carb vanilla yogurt)
1 egg, slightly beaten
(I would add 2 T or more Splenda or Stevia-in-the-Raw Granulated to the topping next time)
(optional, additional ground ginger or cinnamon to sprinkle over topping)
1/3 cup cold water
4 tsp. cornstarch (I used arrowroot starch, which is better for South Beach)
2 T Splenda, Stevia-in-the-Raw Granulated Sweetener or honey
3 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened rasberries or blueberries
(next time I would use 5 cups peaches or 5 cups berries)
Preheat oven to 400F/205C.
Made with whole wheat pastry flour, Splenda, arrowroot starch, and low carb yogurt, this would be acceptable for the South Beach Diet, phase two or three. Even if you used cornstarch, the amount per serving is very small. For phase two, I would be careful to limit serving sizes.
I chose the South Beach Diet to manage my weight partly so I wouldn’t have to count calories, carbs, points, or fat grams, but if you want nutritional information for a recipe, I recommend entering the recipe into Calorie Count, which will calculate it for you.
