This one pot pear dessert includes a biscuit topping that can be used with any seasonal fruit. One recipe that can be used year around. And it's vegan.
In a 8-9 inch medium saucepan with a lid, add the pears, maple syrup or sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and water.
Place over medium heat and bring to a full boil, stirring often. Lower the heat to simmer, cover for 4-5 minutes.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
In a small bowl, combine the milk with the oil, vanilla and zest. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon, just until the batter is mixed thoroughly.
Using a large spoon, about 2 tablespoons, carefully drop the batter onto the fruit mixture. Cover the saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Cook over low heat for 25 minutes. The biscuits when ready should feel firm and slightly brown.
Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of the biscuits with maple syrup.
Cool for 15 minutes before serving. Serve non-dairy ice cream or vegan whipped cream.
