cobbler

You can’t beat a hot pudding and we do love a bit of cobbler; It’s our favourite combination of cakey, juicy fruits and of course lashings of custard.  Just like grandma use to make.

Why not go berry and apple picking at the weekend to make this dish- it’ll certainly work up an appetite.

Vegetarian

Preparation time:10 minutes
Cooking time:30 minutes
Total time:40 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

4 Waitrose Best Of British Apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
340g blackberries
100ml Belvoir Blueberry & Blackcurrant Cordial
100g self-raising flour
100g salted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
50g light brown muscovado sugar
40g whole almonds, roughly chopped
Custard or vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC, gas mark 5. Place the apples, blackberries and cordial in a large saucepan. Heat gently and simmer for 5 minutes. Spoon into a 2-litre ovenproof dish.

2. Rub together the flour and butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar and almonds. Add 2 tbsp cold water and bring together to make a soft dough.

3. Shape the dough into 8 rough balls and place around the edge of the baking dish. Place the dish on a baking sheet then bake for 25–30 minutes until the dough balls are cooked through and the filling is piping hot. Serve warm with custard or ice cream.
