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.

How To Make Plum Cobbler:

- 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).
