|Plum and Apple Cobbler|
I wanted to make a cobbler for ages.
But I just could not get the required ingredients the plums were not good enough or the peaches just disappeared in a blink of my eyes.
Just as a last try I googled and found this yummy plum and apple cobbler here.
The recipe needed Bramley apples which are cooking apples…hmmm a quick query to Mir, who is a Chef by profession and a good friend solved my problem.
Now I do not have self- rising flour at home so I mixed cup maida with 1½ tsp baking powder and skipped adding the ½ tsp salt as I was using salted butter. By the way I forgot to peel the apples but that has not bothered anyone and the cobbler has just disappeared. The girls started on it when it was still warm and out of the oven!!A good enough reason to “#FireUpYourOven”
Plum and Apple Cobbler
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
- 500g plums, stoned and quartered
- 300g Granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 160g / 2/3 cups + 1 tblspn caster sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- 300g/2 ½ cups self raising flour, sifted
- 85g / 6 tblspn unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp milk+2 tblspn
- 150g/ 10 tblspn curds
- In a kadhai/wok mix the plums, apple slices, 100 grams/ ½ cup of the sugar and add the water, cook until the plums and apples soften.
- To make the cobbler, add the sifted flour, butter, baking powder and rest of the sugar and using a food processor pulse to get fine crumbs form but if like me you don’t have a food processer don’t fret, add all the ingredients to a big bowl and with your fingertips rub the butter in the flour to get fine crumbs.
- Add the milk and curds and mix to get a soft dough forms. I needed the 2 tblspn of milk to get the droppable dough You may need or need the extra milk.
- Now the choice is yours you can spoon the mixture in scattered clumps over the fruit leave some gaps for the cobble effect. Or add a little more flour and roll the dough.
- Bake the cobbler for 50 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit is visibly bubbling beneath.
