Plum and Apple Cobbler - Autumn Warmer Recipe 1

Over the next few weeks Henry and I will be sharing some scrummy autumn recipes with you.  Our first recipe is courtesy of Rachel's - one of the UK's leading organic dairy brands.  If like us your apple tree is loaded with fruit, this delicious Plum & Apple Cobbler is the perfect way of using up your autumn fruits.  It is made using Rachel's Low Fat Natural Bio Live Yogurt, which is a deliciously mild, fresh tasting yogurt, with a unique, smooth luscious texture and less than 2% fat.

Plum & Apple Cobbler

Using the best of Autumnal fruit in a scrumptious warming cobbler
Ingredients                    Serves 4-6 
500g plums, stoned & quartered
300g Bramley apples, peeled, cored & sliced
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

1.In a saucepan take the plums, apple slices, 100g of the caster sugar and add the water, cook until the plums and apples soften. Tip: leave the fruit to cool before adding the cobbler pieces this will stop some of the fruit bubbling out over the dish.

2. 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.

3.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. 4. Bake the cobbler for 30-35 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit is visibly bubbling beneath.

Try: serving with pouring cream or lashings of custard
