I wonder if other people enjoy reading cookbooks as much as I do? I don’t always make everything that I see, but I can spend hours paging through each one. And sometimes, I even try to recreate the recipe (or worse… I adapt it based on my fridge/store cupboard ingredients).
Which is exactly how I managed to make this apple and blueberry cobbler, which is now a firm favourite in our household and has been repeated numerous times using different fruit!
The original recipe is a Peach Cobbler from Jamie Oliver which I had seen in Jamie’s America cookbook, but I changed the fruit portion and kept the cobbler recipe (almost) the same. It is a SURE winner and a definite “repeat” in our household.
Apple and Blueberry Cobbler
4 apples, peeled/cored & diced
1 cup of blueberries
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
juice from 1 lemon
100g self-raising flour
50g caster sugar
100g butter, chilled & cut into small cubes
pinch of salt
- Place the apples, cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan and cook over a medium heat until the apples are soft.
- Remove from heat and place into an ovenproof dish along with the fresh blueberries
- To make the cobbler topping, place the flour/sugar/butter/salt into a food processor.
- Pulse until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs
- Add 2 Tablespoons of water & pulse again – the mixture will form a dough now
- Spoon this mixture over the fruit
- Bake at 180C for 20minutes
