Recipe: Mulberry and Apple Cobbler

At this time of the year our fruit trees are producing an abundance of fruit. Here is a cobbler recipe which is delicious served hot or cold.

- 1 cup of self-raising flour
- ½ cup of white sugar
- ¾ cup of soy milk
- ½ cup of margarine

Fruit filling:
- 2 cups of mulberries
- 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and quartered
- ½ cup of white sugar

- Set oven to 190 degrees C.

To make batter:
- Melt the margarine. Pour into a baking dish.
- Mix the flour, ½ cup of sugar and milk. Pour this batter over the margarine in the baking dish.

To make the fruit mix:
- Wash the fruit thoroughly. Snip the green stalks from the mulberries.
- Cook the apples in the microwave with a little water until soft. Test with a fork.

- Combine the mulberries, softened apples and ½ cup of sugar in a saucepan until mixed together. Stir to avoid burning.

What a beautiful colour

- Pour the mulberry mix into the baking dish, on top of the batter.
- Bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until the batter is cooked through.

Serve warm with your favourite coconut or soy icecream. Can also be sliced and served cold as a cake the next day.
You can experiment with this recipe by adding different fruits. You may also want to experiment with the sweetness by using more or less sugar depending on the types of fruit used and the ripeness of your selected fruit.
