Plum Cobbler Recipe!

Hello lovelies,

HAPPY BLOOMING NEW YEAR! I hope however you saw the new year in, that you enjoyed yourselves and your heads aren’t too sore today. That being said, 2021 was one hell of a year, I think we deserved to see it off having a good time.

Well, I thought I’d kickstart the year as I mean to go on… with food glorious food. Hell yeah, you thought 2021 was good for bakes? Well, there’s plenty more where that came from. I’m super excited to share what I’ve got up my sleeve for this year. I’ll be pushing myself harder than I ever have before.

This year I’m determined to cater for all. I’ll be doing super sweet treats to easy dinners to savoury snacks, from vegan to gluten/dairy free, from low calorie to super indulgent and not forgetting, everything in between. Put it this way, you’ll be able to find something on my blog which caters to your wants and dietary needs.

Today I’m sharing with you a another (yes another *sees people rolling their eyes*) cobbler recipe. Did I go a little cobbler mad last year… yes… do i intend to carry that on this year… hell yeah! It’s a plum cobbler today and DAMN is it good.

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Overall: 50-60 Minutes


Ingredients You Need For Filling:

  • 8-10 Large Plums, Chopped In Half
  • 65g Of Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, Peeled & Grated
  • 3tbsp Of Cornstarch
  • 1tsp Of Mixed Spice

Ingredients You Need For Topping:

  • 140g Of Plain Flour
  • 1.5tsp Of Baking Powder

How To Make Plum Cobbler:

  • Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients and preheat the oven to 190C / 170C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
  • Secondly, in a large bowl, combine the 8-10 chopped plums, 65g of light brown sugar, 1 grated Granny Smith apple, 3tbsp of cornstarch and 1tsp of mixed spice.
  • Once combined, place the plum mixture into the bottom of a dish (TIP: I used a skillet but you can use whatever you have to hand).
  • Next, in a medium size bowl, combine the 120g of flour and 1.5tsp of baking powder.
  • Add the 136g of cold, unsalted butter and using your fingertips, rub the dry ingredients with the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Now, slowly add the 20ml of double cream to the butter mixture and stir using a fork until just moistened.
  • Using a spatula, gently press the mixture together, forming a loose dough.
  • Crumble the dough across the top of the plums in your dish.
  • Then, sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.
  • Place your plum cobbler into the oven for around 45 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  • Finally, take out the oven and serve warm (TIP: adding some cream or vanilla icecream to this will taste delicious).

That’s your Plum Cobbler prepared, baked and ready for you to enjoy!

Want to know a secret? this cobbler is actually much low in calories compared to my other cobblers I’ve made. Around 400 calories for the entire cobbler – not bad, ay?

Let me know in the comments below if you make this yourself and if you do, what your thoughts are on it. Did you enjoy?

Get excited ladies and gents, there’s plenty more delicious bakes to come. Here’s to 2022 being a great year of great baking… cheers!

Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,

Elle xo

    This is another unique sweet treat. I have eaten peach 🍑 cobbler, but never came across plum cobbler. Black and red plums are sold here In the US so i am assuming these are the same plums you use. Like the play with the granny smith apple 🍎;he tartness will balance the sweetness of the dish. Thanks for sharing this delicious dessert Elle.

      Ooo peach cobbler is one of my favs, it’s delicious isn’t it? Plum cobbler is just as delicious. Yeah they are, I use any plums I can come get my hands on – they work beautifully no matter what type you use. Worth giving the plums a try before though so you can balance the sweetness / tartness out. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
