At this time of year there is a good supply of stone fruit and a need for lots of recipes to use them up. Something like a cross between a sponge pudding and a crumble, a cobbler is the perfect Autumnal desert, particularly when your neighbour drops a barrel of peaches on your doorstep!
- 100g butter
- 1 cup organic flour
- ¾ cup organic sugar, divided
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 cup milk (non-dairy is fine if preferred)
- 4 cups fresh organic stone fruit, sliced (we used peaches but most autumn fruit will work!)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ¼ t ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180°C. As the oven warms, melt butter inside in an oven proof baking dish.
Place fruit, 1/2 cup of the sugar and lemon juice in a pot and simmer for 2-3 minutes to soften fruit and dissolve sugar, stirring often.
While fruit cooks combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar and baking powder. Add milk and gently mix to combine.
Take butter out of the oven and pour the batter mixture over melted butter - do not stir. Then pour the fruit mixture over batter, again without stirring. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake in oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm with cream and/or ice cream.
