Apple Cobbler

Filling:
5 cups tart apples, peeled and sliced (approx 5 large)
1/2 – 3/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
2 Tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp butter, softened

Cobbler:
235g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda
1 tsp salt
80g raw sugar
80g unsalted butter, room temp
270ml buttermilk
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
Extra 1 Tbsp raw sugar
Double cream or vanilla ice cream to serve

Preheat oven 200C

Filling: Place all ingredients except butter in a large bowl, combine with hands until well mixed. Place in a baking dish and put little pieces of the butter scattered on top. Bake in the oven for approx 25 mins.

Meanwhile, to make cobbler batter: Put all dry ingredients into the bowl of a processor and pulse until combined. Add unsalted butter and process for 30 secs until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla and mix with a spoon until just combined.

Remove apples from the oven and either pour cobbler batter on top to make one big one, or put apple mixture into greased individual, 1 cup capacity pots, spoon batter on top, sprinkle with extra raw sugar and place in the oven. Bake for approx 25 – 30 mins or until well risen and golden.

Remove from oven, sprinkle with icing sugar if desired and serve with cream or ice cream.
