Now I know I've already posted one Slow Cooker Sunday recipe today, and I also know that I've also posted this recipe several months ago, but this is the first time I've tried doing the fruit (in fact any dessert) in the slow cooker. Plus it's my blog and I want to post it again, so there you go. I've used the slow cooker for the first part of the recipe as I have no idea if the cobbler bit would cook in it, another time I'll test that out.
- 800g of mixed fruit, I went for apples, plums, pears and nectarines
- 160g caster sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- 300g self raising flour, sifted
- 85g unsalted butter, cubed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp milk
- 150g Rachel’s Low Fat Natural Bio Live Yogurt
- In the slow cooker take the fruit, 100g of the caster sugar and add the water, cook until the fruit softens. Tip: leave the fruit to cool before adding the cobbler pieces this will stop some of the fruit bubbling out over the dish.
- To make the cobbler, add the sifted flour, butter, baking powder and the remainder of the sugar (60g) and using a food processor or mixer whiz together for a few seconds on pulse speed until fine crumbs form.
- Add the milk and yogurt and whiz again until a soft dough forms . You can either spoon the mixture in scattered clumps over the fruit or add a little more flour and roll out the dough using a cutter. Leave some gaps for the cobble effect.
- Bake the cobbler for 30-35 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit is visibly bubbling beneath.
- Serve with vanilla ice-cream, custard or clotted cream.
