Apple Cobbler

I thought about making a non-canned dessert for once and saw apples on the side. This apple cobbler is really delicious and great with ice cream or sorbet in Summer! Especially with a few icy cold drinks!


Preferably for this recipe, self raising flour is recommended though you can opt for plain. If you are using plain flour make sure to use around a teaspoon of baking soda to help it rise up. You can also use toasted flour.

The spices used in this recipe can be changed based on tastesh if you want a more caramelized flavour replace the white sugar with brown Demerara sugar. We used cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, allspice and ginger for the spices.

We used five apples which where quite small and it didn’t entirely fill the pie dish so make sure to use medium or large apples and make sure it fills at least a third of your pie dish. Adding lemon juice to the apples with the sugar and spices helps get the delicious juices out- we keep them in as to not dry the cobbler out.

We also mix in some cinnamon into the topping to make sure that it has a great flavour! You can add allspice into there as well but use a teaspoon as the flavour can be a bit overpowering if we use too much!

Before starting this recipe make sure to preheat the oven to around 180 C fan on! We’ll be leaving the cobbler in the oven for around half an hour.
