Summer Fruit Cobbler

I first made this pudding at my nana’s house a few years ago. I decided on the spur of the moment to use up some summer fruits nana had in the freezer and decided to make a cobbler. I made it up as I went along and hoped for the best and it turned out great!! My grandad loves hot apple pie and ice cream however, he loved the Summer Fruit Cobbler for a change. Every time I visit them now, grandad always requests I make one, well it can’t be bad eh?!

This is a delicious alternative to crumble. It is more of a suet/scone mix, a heavier cake batter, very rich, full of butter but not very sweet. I add plenty of sugar to my fruit to balance out the flavour. It’s great served warm from the oven with ice cream or hot custard.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams Summer Fruits, frozen
  • 200 grams Butter
  • 200 grams Self Raising Flour
  • 3 tsp Caster Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 100 grams Caster Sugar, for the Summer Fruits

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

In a saucepan, melt the butter gently over a low heat. Meanwhile, measure the flour and add the salt and 3 teaspoons of caster sugar. When the butter is melted, add to the flour mixture and mix through well. Add the milk. It should be thicker than a cake batter but not to thick like a bread dough. It is very buttery so not sweet. Therefore, take the summer fruits and place in a saucepan with the 100 grams of caster sugar and gently heat to allow the fruit to thaw slightly and the sugar to melt. The fruit will go soft and produce a nice sweet juice.

Place the fruit into an oven proof dish and place the cobbler mix on top. Place a baking tray under the dish as it usually leaks juice slightly. Place in the oven for 25-30mins or until cooked through.

Fresh from the oven, as you can see, you need a baking tray underneath 😃
