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.

Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is delicious and a great way to use up your canned peaches or fresh peaches! We used coconut cream for this recipe which gives it a delicious coconut aftertaste to it. Therefore, using the cream this recipe is 100% vegan!

Alternatively, you can make a much more tropical cobbler with pineapple as we have a recipe for that too! This cobbler is a plain and basic cobbler which means you can add any spice or herb to it. My recommendations would be allspice, cinnamon and cloves to give it an autumn note.

The cornstarch helps it to thicken the filling.

Pineapple Cobbler

Pineapple Cobbler is delicious and a great way to create a dessert with canned ingredients! With only the basic ingredients like sugar, flour and milk along with the liquids and the delicious pineapple! These together create this delicate dessert being filling and well- awesome!

We toasted the flour in order to make the cobbler taste much better, you can find the recipe for toasted flour here. If you’re looking for something else you can make with canned pineapples we have a pineapple pie recipe as well.

You can alternatively add butter into this recipe but we sadly didn’t have any available for when I had baked this up. Adding butter turns the topping of the cobbler from partially dry to nice and moist.
