Vegan Cobbler, Cornmeal Topping - Pineapple or Apple or Peach or Berry, etc.

What you need: 

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
juice to cover bottom of pan to about 1/2" deep
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring, optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 (20 ounce) cans pineapple chunks in juice, drained, juice reserved
1/4-1/2 cup raisins, dried cranberries, currants, or other dried fruit
1/4-1/2 cup nuts, chopped and toasted, optional
additional juice or milk, as needed
3/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup fruit juice (any kind that goes well with your fruit choice)
1/2 cup non dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring, optional

What you do: 

1. For fruit, combine cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and 1/4 teaspoon salt in pan. Add juice, vanilla, maple flavoring and lemon juice. Stir with a fork until cornstarch is dissolved. Add drained fruit. If using fresh fruit, no need to pre-cook it. Pile fruit into 8x8 or 9x9 pan to a depth of about 2 pineapple chunks. You can mix your fruits, too - there are no rules here.
2. Sprinkle dried fruits and nuts over the fruit layer. Sprinkle extra juice over all if needed. You should have enough juice to almost cover the dried fruit layer. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
3. For topping, combine cornmeal, flours, baking powder and salt. Separately, combine 1/2 cup each fruit juice and milk. Any fruit juice is fine. Cider also works. Add vanilla and maple flavoring. You could add some lemon juice, too. Depends on your preference.
4. Stir liquids into the flour mix and gently combine. Add more liquid if needed, but don't over-stir. You should have a medium-thick consistency that's pourable, but just barely. Spread topping over fruit. Gaps are okay. Bake until topping is nicely browned and filling is bubbly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
