Vary your fruit depending on the season. Peaches, nectarines and berries in the summer or apples and pears to make a lovely winter warming cobbler. As a change, remove 50g of the flour and use 50g ground almonds and a tsp of almond essence
- 800g plums, stoned and quartered (alternative fruits can be used)
- 50g granulated sugar
- 200ml water
- 1tsp ground cinnamon
- Cobbler topping:
- 225g self raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 50g cold butter/ hard margarine, cut into small pieces
- 25g caster sugar
- 125ml Alpro Almond Unsweetened drink
Pre heat the oven to 190ºc fan, 200ºc conventional, gas 6
Place the granulated sugar, water and cinnamon in a large saucepan and place on a low heat until the sugar dissolves, approximately 2 minutes. Increase the heat and bring to the boil, cooking for 1-2 minutes. Then add the plums, cover with a lid and cook gently for 5 minutes.
Pour the cooked plums into a 25cm round ovenproof dish
To make the cobbler topping; Pour the flour and baking powder into a medium bowl , add the cold butter/ margarine and carefully rub the fat into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar and Alpro Almond Unsweetened until you have soft pliable consistency. Bring the mixture together into a ball.
Place the cobbler mixture onto a lightly floured board and flatten out with your hand or a rolling pin until it measures 4cms in depth
Using a 6cm cutter, cut out 8 circles and place them on the top of the plums.
