Ingredients

  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into wedges
  • 500g frozen blackberries
  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 3/4 cup (110g) self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup (55g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, extra
  • 60g chilled butter, chopped
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup (25g) chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbs demerara sugar
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Combine apple, blackberries, caster sugar, lemon juice, cornflour, cinnamon and vanilla in a slow cooker. Cover and cook, gently stirring once, for 2 hours on high (or 3 hours on low) or until the apple is tender and sauce thickens slightly.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, combine the flour, brown sugar and extra cinnamon in a bowl. Add the butter. Use your fingertips to rub butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre. Add the egg yolk and buttermilk. Use a round-bladed knife to stir until a soft dough forms.

STEP 3

Drop tablespoonfuls of buttermilk mixture over the apple mixture in the slow cooker. Sprinkle with the walnut and demerara sugar. Cover and cook for 1 hour on high (or 1 1/2 hours on low) or until the topping is golden.

STEP 4

Divide the cobbler among serving bowls. Serve with ice cream.
