Green-Tomato-and-Raspberry Cobbler

Green tomatoes make a surprise appearance in this dessert. In the winter, you can substitute cranberries for the raspberries.

  • Yield: 9 servings


  • 3 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups chopped green tomato (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • none Cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk


Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine the raspberries and 1 tablespoon flour in a medium bowl; toss well.

Bring tomato, 1 cup granulated sugar, and water to a boil in a medium saucepan; cook 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in the raspberry mixture. Pour mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Lightly spoon 1 cup flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moist. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto fruit mixture. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and crust is browned.
