Pear, berry and white chocolate cobbler
Yes, you can make a fruity cobbler in the slow cooker - this recipe is proof. It’s got a pear and berry base with an irresistible nutty topping.
Note: + 20 mins standing time
- 4 pears, peeled, cored, cut into wedges
- 300g pkt frozen mixed berries
- 1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
- 1/4 cup (35g) plain flour
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 1 1/2 cup (225g) self-raising flour
- 1 tbs caster sugar, extra
- 120g butter, chopped
- 3/4 cup (185ml) buttermilk
- 100g white chocolate, chopped
Combine the pear, berries, sugar, plain flour and vanilla in the base of an 18-cup (4.5L) slow cooker. Stir to combine. Stand for 20 mins or until the berries start to release their juices.
Meanwhile, combine the self-raising flour and extra sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre and pour in the buttermilk. Stir until a soft sticky dough forms. Stir through the chocolate.
Spoon the scone mixture evenly over pear mixture in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or until scone is cooked and fruit is tender.
