Easy Apple Cobbler

This is a simple dessert which is quick to make and uses ingredients which are always at hand in the kitchen.

You can use any fruit as the flavour which is topped with a vanilla batter and baked until golden. This dish got its name as once cooked the top of the dish looks like a cobbled street.

I served it with praline ice cream but any flavour is delicious melting into the warm pudding.

Apple Cobbler
Serves  6 - 8
Apple mix
5 cups tart apples peeled and sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour

1/2 cup flour sifted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter softened
1 egg beaten gently

Roast the apples in a tray until lightly golden at 190 degrees mixed with the apple mix ingredients
Mix all the batter ingredients together.
Grease 6 - 8 ramekins and pour the batter in filling 3/4 full. Press a few pieces of apple into the top of each dish.
Bake the puddings for 15 - 20 minutes at 190 degrees, test with a skewer.
Serve with Ice cream and a dusting of icing sugar.
