Cobbler Dessert

This is a wonderful Winter warming dessert.  I originally heard about this dessert on the Oprah show years ago when she popped into her neighbour's house unannounced.  They were having this dessert with their meal that night.  So I googled it and came up with my version of this American favourite. 

1 x 410 gram tin of fruit in juice or stewed fruit
1 cup of SR flour
1/3 of a cup of sugar ( white or raw )
About 1  1/2 cups of milk - enough to make it a slightly runny batter

optional extras - 
chopped walnuts
cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on top,
sultanas or other dried fruit.

Lightly grease a medium casserole dish.

Empty slightly drained tin of fruit into a casserole dish, cutting up any large pieces.
In a mixing bowl mix the flour, sugar and milk until it's a smooth, slightly runny batter.

Pour evenly over fruit and sprinkle with nuts,  cinnamon and sugar.
Bake on 180 degree Celsius for 40 mins. Serve with cream,  ice cream or custard.


*  A couple of weeks ago I made a cobbler using stewed apple from the freezer.  It was a big hit with the family.  Darren said it tasted like apple pie.

*  Other fruit I've used with success are plums ( make sure you take the stone out ), peaches,  apricots and pears.

*  This dessert can be cooked 2 - 3 days ahead of time and reheated as needed.

*  If you don't have any tinned fruit,  grab a couple of apples ( even the wrinkly ones ),  peel,  cut and slice into a casserole dish.  Cover with cling wrap and cook in the microwave on high for about three minutes.  Then pour the batter over the top.

  3. I like the sound of this!
    I should have saved half of my stewed apples to give this one a go but that's ok, can't wait to try this recipe.

    1. This dessert is really cheap if you use old fruit and stew them.

    2. Yes absolutely,
      The apples that I ended up stewing were bought at least a month or more back (I think I posted it in a frugal task one week) they were still pretty good although it does make me wonder how long they kept the fruit for before I actually purchased it :S

  4. Yum Wendy, i just love Apple desserts (and Lemon). I don't think i have ever had Apple cobbler as i have only had Peach cobbler, must try. I made your Apple crumble last night, big hit, yummy, thanks

  5. Another great and cheap recipe Wendy, I'll make this one tomorrow.
