Plum, orange & almond cobbler
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 6
This comfortingly cakey cobbler makes a warming end to any meal
For the topping
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix plums, sugar, 1 tbsp flour and cinnamon in a large baking dish. Splash over the orange juice, cover with foil, then bake for 30 mins until the fruit has softened.
- STEP 2
Mix the ground almonds, zest and flour with the salt and baking powder in a food processor, then whizz in the butter until it disappears. Pulse in the sugar, tip into a large bowl, then make a well in the middle. Warm the yogurt, milk and vanilla together in the microwave for 1 min or in a pan; it should be hot and may well go a bit lumpy-looking. Tip into the bowl and quickly work into the flour mix using a cutlery knife. As soon as it's all in, stop. The mix should be stiffish but spoonable.
- STEP 3
Take the plums from the oven, uncover, then top with 6 big spoonfuls of batter. Scatter with flaked almonds and a little sugar. Bake for 30-35 mins until topping is golden and the fruit bubbles underneath. Scatter with more caster sugar to serve.
