1 quart pitted pie cherries or other fruit
1/2 to 1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups sourdough starter (in the form of a thick batter)
3 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons dried ground candy caps
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Grease a 7 by 11 inch (2 quart) baking pan. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mix the fruit with 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Spread the fruit in the bottom of the pan.
Stir the egg yolks, salt and the candy caps into the batter. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites and baking soda into the batter. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the surface is golden and no longer dents from a finger-touch to the surface. May be served hot or cold, but the cobbler will fall a little if it's cut hot.
