Cobbler

Cobbler is a Summer dessert with fruits and dough. It is much easier and quicker to prepare than tart, pie or galette. We mix fruits with sugar and lemon juice, put them into baking dish and cover with scoops of dough. There is no kneading, cooling, rolling, waiting nor blind baking required. The cobbler’s taste is similar to pastry-fruit cakes and often served with ice cream. You may use fruits of your choice – bigger need to be core and chopped and berries are ready on demand. Enjoy!

 

baking porcelain dish 8 x 8 inch (20 x 20 cm)

 

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 1 ½ cups (240 g) all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups (375 ml) whipping cream

Filling:

  • fresh fruits of your choice – I added:
  • 250 g blackberries
  • 250 g blueberries
  • 250 g strawberries
  • ½ - 1 cup sugar (100-200 g ) – depending on taste and fruit sweetness – I added 2/3 cup (130 g)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch/corn flour

Topping:

  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

 

 

 

Preheat oven to 375 °F/190°C. Grease baking dish with butter.

Wash fruits, slice bigger once, remove pits. Place to the bowl, add sugar, lemon juice and corn starch. Shake the bowl gently several times to toss fruits. Put the mixture into baking dish.

In a bowl of a stand mixer mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add cream and mix just until combined. You may prepare the dough also mixing all with a spoon. Spoon the dough mixture over the fruits in a rough splash style way. Brush with a cream and sprinkle with sugar.

Put the dish to the preheated oven placing it on the baking sheet (the filling will drip). Bake for 45-55 minutes until the dough is golden brown around the edges and filling is bubbling.

Serve warm or cooled, with ice cream or plain.
