A young scientist needed a can of pineapples for an experiment, so he rang the father person and asked if he could bring them home with the shopping. Well the father person came home with a large can of pie-apples… And so began our go to comfort food this winter. Since then someone has needed to dash the store for a can of pie apples all winter long!!! Apple Cobbler has become our best friend this winter, every couple of days we succomb…
Let’s Meet the Players:
For the Apples:
- A can of pie apples – you can actually use any soft fruit and they don’t have to be canned either. Peaches are so good too!!!
- A cup of brown sugar
- Half a cup of butter
- A teaspoon of cinnamon
- A splash o lemonjuice.
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 2 cups of Milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 a cup of sugar
For the Batter:
Let’s Play the Game:
- Gently melt the butter in a pan.
- Add the apples… the sugar and the cinnamon and the lemon.
- Let them bubble away until they are brown and caramelized…
- Pour them into a greased pie dish.
- Add all the batter ingredients into the mixing bowl: the flour, the baking powder, the milk, the sugar and the eggs.
- Beat away, you should get a batter just slightly thicker than pancake batter.
- Pour the batter over the pie apples.
- It is good to leave a few bits of fruit poking through… If you have a bit too much batter for your pie dish just keep the excess back and make a couple of little pancakes… someone will thank you!!!
- Pop it into the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius for about half an hour, until a skewer comes out clean.
- And there you have your apple cobbler, and if you live with a chef he will want to sprinkle it with a whole lot more cinnamon at this stage…Let him, a chef must do what a chef must do!!!
- Serve it plain or with cream or with ice-cream, and it is just delicious. Not to mention perfect for yet another rainy day!!!
Hope you have a fun weekend!!!
