Happy New Year! I hope that each of you have a wonderful year!
This New Year’s Dinner is my traditional meal:peas, greens, cornbread, pork with mopping sauce and sweet potatoes all cooked clean of course. But I changed my dessert, wanted something new, something different after all the holiday foods that we have eaten in the past 5 weeks.. So I came up with this as I was making my cherry smoothie this morning and saw I only had 5 cherries left.. The recipe will only need 4, so yes, I ate the fifth one!
4 tsp. melted unsalted butter, (divide 3 tsp and 1 tsp)
4 tsp Turbinado Sugar
4 fresh or unsweetened canned Pineapple slices
4 pitted fresh or frozen cherries
2/3 c. whole wheat pastry flour
3 tbsp Honey
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 dashes cinnamon
6 tbsp unsweetened soy milk ( can use milk of choice)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
Lightly spray 4 ramekins
Pour melted butter into ramekins. Sprinkle with the Turbinado, then top with a slice of pineapple. Place a cherry into each middle of pineapples.
In a small bowl , combine pastry flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in milk, vanilla and 1 tsp unsalted butter.
Stir just til all ingredients are moistened. Spoon over the pineapple.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or til golden brown and the edges have separated from the dish.
Invert into a serving dish, serve warm and enjoy!
