Delicious desert, made exactly as described, perfect result.Thank you
Easy to make taste great!
Delicious and easy! I like how you can dial down the sugar to taste. Also recommend whipped cream on the side.
Put cool whip on top
This is so delicious! I have tried many recipes for Plum Cobbler but the grated orange peel adds a tangy layer of flavor. My family loved this cobbler with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Excellent recipe!My 7 year old granddaughter made it with me. She did the measuring & mixing and was SO proud when everyone told her how delicious it is.We also substituted apricots for a second cobbler. Equally tasty. We will definitely do this again!!
A friend brought us a ton of Santa Rosa plums! I just saw this recipe and can’t wait to make it tonight. I also live in Sacramento, and think it’s great you’re a local as well! Here’s to the River City and our wonderful summer bounty!
Hi David, hello neighbor! Our Santa Rosas are just now coming in. Sacramento really is wonderful for produce, isn’t it?
Made this tonight with elephant heart plums Was so delicious with such a unique flavor. Thank you
Plum-deliciousSooo very goodMake some right now
So happy with this! I had no clue what to do with a ton of plums. This!!! So so good.
Soooo good! Will definitely reduce the sugar next time and cut back the orange zest to 1/4 t as 1 t was a tad overwhelming. Served it warm with whipped cream for a super cozy dessert
Made this tonight and it was a big hit! Who knew you could make a cobbler with plums? I used 1/2 c sugar and cornstarch and added a generous pinch of pumpkin pie spice. Delicious!
Why do the directions refer to a different recipe? I love the first recipe because of the simplicity of ingredients.
Hi Linda, the only difference between this recipe and the one I originally posted in 2005 is that it has a teaspoon of orange zest in the filling. Everything else is the same. I updated the photos.
I’ve been making this recipe for years and it is always a hit. I freeze plums during summer so I can enjoy during winter. I increase corn starch so not too loose.
This was fabulous! I didn’t have enough plums so I used a few peaches that were getting a bit old, and I only had enough for a half-recipe but it was a hit. My husband & I ate it all straight away. Thank you!
I made this today, and it was delicious! I used yellow plums with a few red ones thrown in because that’s what I had, and I used half sugar, half honey rather than just sugar. And I put in a dash of nutmeg because I just like nutmeg. It turned out wonderfully! I love how the juices turned so cherry red.
Will a GF Flour work? Such as Redmill all purpose?
Hi Mik, I haven’t tried making this cobbler with GF flour, but I see no reason why it wouldn’t work fine. If you do try it that way, please let us know how it works out for you!
I am making it with Robin Hood all purpose gf flour right now! Can’t wait to test it out!!
I loved this recipe! I also added some apricots in there that I had which were getting very ripe. Turned out delicious!
I had a bunch of plums given to me so I made this cobbler. My family loved it. I am not a fan of plums, but I am going to make this recipe with some Cannes peaches. I loved the topping so I am hoping it should turn out OK.
Hi Amy, just make sure the peaches have sufficient tartness. Peaches that are sweet and tender do not do well baked.
I have golden (yellow) plums will they work as well?
Hi Carrie, the best plums for baking are tart plums. If your yellow plums are tart, they should work great!
