Okay, Enough of the Home/Hygiene Products–Nectarine Cobbler Time


When I created this blog, I didn’t intend to be using it for pintesting homemade cleaning and hygiene products, but I guess that’s what I’ve been doing lately.  Time to move onto something different.  How about a recipe?!

My husband recently bought some nectarines, which are not my favorite fruit.  The kids think they’re okay, but they weren’t moving very fast.  So, one night I decided to experiment, and here is what I came up with.

Mug Nectarine Cobbler

Tools:  Oven-safe mug; toaster oven (mine is a convection oven, and I had convection on)

Ingredients:

1 sliced nectarine

about 2 Tbsp butter

dash of salt

pinch of cinnamon

1.5 Tbsp sugar

3 Tbsp flour (may need more, see instructions)

 

I took my sliced nectarines and placed them in my mug.  That was the easy part.  Then I cut the salt, cinnamon, sugar, and flour into the butter.  You want this topping crumbly.  I never got it quite there–I think I worked the butter too long and it got too melty, but it is possible that I just needed more flour.  At any rate, once your mixture is ready, sprinkle it on top.  Heat in a 350-degree toaster oven for about 10 minutes (until topping gets golden brown).

Despite my mixture not being crumbly enough, it tasted good.  That’s all that counts, right?

Pre-baking.  Yes, crumbles would have looked nicer.

Cooked.  Parts of the topping were a bit doughy, probably because it was in big glops.  Still tasted great!
