Welcome to the first post!
This is the beginning of a journey through my favourite meals with the first port of call also being the best – dessert! For this recipe I have chosen two of my favourite fruits, nectarines and raspberries. More typically made with peaches, a cobbler can literally be “cobbled together” with any number of varied fruit combinations. This is a lovely seasonal dessert for those of us trying to convince ourselves that the fruit content outweighs the sugar.
Underneath you will find the ingredients needed for this recipe, and don’t forget you can refer to the conversion tables tab in the menu for all measurements and temperatures.
You will need:
5 ripe nectarines, peeled, pitted and sliced
Juice of half a lemon
1tsp vanilla paste/ extract
2 tbsp caster sugar
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup milk
30g unsalted butter, melted
- Preheat your oven to 180ºC
- Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the light brown sugar
- Beat in the milk and melted butter, and whisk to form a smooth batter
- In another bowl, mix the sliced nectarines, raspberries, vanilla paste, caster sugar and lemon juice
- Pour the mixed fruit into a dish to form a layer across the bottom
- Pour the batter mix over the top to cover substantially
- Sprinkle over some rolled oats and light brown sugar
- Place in the middle of the oven and bake for between 50 minutes and 1 hour
This particular pud is best served warm with pouring cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. For a variation add a handful of blackberries to the fruit mix!
