Apple cobbler recipe

It may be just before Christmas, but if you’ve got an apple tree, I bet you’ve still got a couple of apples on it, just revealing themselves now that the leaves have fallen off. And if you harvested everything back in September or October, then you’re probably still eating your way through the pile.Apples in the frost

This is a really delicious way to use up some of the apples: it makes a change from the more usual crumbles, bakes and pies. Although not a main ingredient, it’s the brown sugar that really makes the difference, so use the very best you have – we’ve got a great range here. The list of ingredients is long, but the recipe itself is extremely simple. With all the spices, it makes a good Christmassy dessert – with some custard to offset the sticky richness.


4 big apples (or equivalent in small windfalls), peeled, cored and diced

100g white sugar

50g brown sugar

2 tbsp plain flour

Pinch ground cinnamon

Dash vanilla extract

Pinch salt

Pinch ground nutmeg

Juice of half a lemon

For the topping:

30g butter

70g self-raising flour

100g white sugar

Pinch salt

Pinch ground ginger

1 egg, beaten


Butter a baking dish.

Mix together all the ingredients in the top half of the list and put in the dish.

Mix together all the topping ingredients. Dollop this in spots on top of the apple mixture – it will spread out as it bakes.

Bake in an oven preheated to 190C, for about 30 minutes.
