Blackberry and Apple Cobbler

or rather...Blackberry and Apple Cobble!  I think I should have chosen a shallower dish for this as the cobber pieces all joined together into one big cobble!  It did taste delicious though!

It's the last day of Bookmarked Recipes, run by Jac at Tinned Tomatoes from an idea by Ruth at Ruth's Kitchen Experiments, and I thought I wasn't going to get an entry in in time.  But for tonight's dessert I chose a recipe I had bookmarked in Woman and Home - Dinner Tonight for October.

Blackberry and Apple Cobbler
500g (1lb 2oz) Apples
400g (4oz) blackberries
200g (7oz) golden caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1tbsp cornflour
150g (5oz) self-raising flour
50g (2oz) chilled butter, cubed
100ml (4fl oz) buttermilk
1tbsp demerara sugar

1.2litre (2 pint) greased ovenproof dish

1. Heat the oven to 200C, 180C Fan, 400F, gas 6.  Fill a bowl with water, peel the apples and put into the water to stop them browning. Quarter, core and slice the apples and place in the ovenproof dish.

2. Add the blackberries to the apples and sprinle over 50g (2oz) of the sugar, as well as the cinnamon and cornflour.  Gently stir everything together to mix the apples and blacberries with the dry ingredients.

3. Put the flour in a bowl or food processor, add the butter and the remaining 150g (5oz) sugar, and cut with a knife or whizz until it forms crumbs.  Add the buttermilk and blend until a squidgy dough forms.

4. Scatter clumps of the dough over the fruit - don't cover completely.  Spinkle with the demerara sugar and bake for 40 minues, or unitl the fruit is tender and the cobbler golden.

I didn't have any buttermilk, normally I would use a bit of yogurt in the milk to sour it or some lemon juice, but instead I used an egg and topped up to 100ml with semi-skimmed milk, it rose beautifully as you can see.

Mmmmmmmm, that looks scrummy Janice. If I hadn't just been out for a meal and if I wasn't feeling rather stuffed and content, I would be wanting to have a slice this minute. Great Bookmarked Recipe. The roundup will be posted tomorrow night :)

Mmm the cobble looks great! I have a tub of blackberry and apple pie filling in the freezer, rather tempted to give this a go instead of pie!

That looks fabulous Janice, who doesn't like apples and blackberries together, SO delicious!
Must join in bookmarked recipe next time.

That does look lovely. I love old fashioned puddings but, funnily enough, I don't remember ever having had a cobbler. I can see I would love it, though.

Waw, Janice!! That cobbler looks amazing & ooh so pretty too! :)
I loved every bite of it & so did my husband!

Yes, it was very good and easier to make than a sponge topping, lovely crusty top. If you made it in a cake tin you could probably cut it like cake rather than pudding.

Thanks for all your lovely comments.

That looks like a lovely Autumn pudding, who needs dinner when you could skip straight to the pudding and have two big bowls of this!

Perfect dessert for this time of year - warming and delicious:-)

What a shame all the cobble pieces joined together, I think you are right and maybe should have used a larger dish. Great that it still tasted fab though, perfect pud for this time of year.

Oh,Janice, you have caught my attention and taste buds with this dish... YUM!

Yum! I just love these types of warming autumn puddings.

Looks gorgeous - I keep meaning to try a cobbler, but never get round to it! I love the combo of blackberries and apples - delicious!

You can't do better than blackberries and apples in autumn. I think I might prefer the single cobble - there's more of an element of surprise that way, if you see what I mean.

Looks great! I was searching everywhere for a recommended cobbler recipe a couple of weeks ago so am so glad to have come across this - Thanks, will def make soon.

Cobble or cobbler, it looks delicious and I bet tasted great.

That looks fantastic. I can't wait for blackberry season here!
