1 cup of SR flour
1/3 of a cup of sugar ( white or raw )
About 1 1/2 cups of milk - enough to make it a slightly runny batter
optional extras -
cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on top,
sultanas or other dried fruit.
Lightly grease a medium casserole dish.
In a mixing bowl mix the flour, sugar and milk until it's a smooth, slightly runny batter.
Pour evenly over fruit and sprinkle with nuts, cinnamon and sugar.
Bake on 180 degree Celsius for 40 mins. Serve with cream, ice cream or custard.
* A couple of weeks ago I made a cobbler using stewed apple from the freezer. It was a big hit with the family. Darren said it tasted like apple pie.
* Other fruit I've used with success are plums ( make sure you take the stone out ), peaches, apricots and pears.
* This dessert can be cooked 2 - 3 days ahead of time and reheated as needed.
* If you don't have any tinned fruit, grab a couple of apples ( even the wrinkly ones ), peel, cut and slice into a casserole dish. Cover with cling wrap and cook in the microwave on high for about three minutes. Then pour the batter over the top.
