A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
Wednesday with Donna Hay: Stewed Apple and Coconut Cobbler
My 126th recipe with the Wednesday with Donna Hay group isStewed Apple and Coconut Cobbler, was chosen for the group by Gaye, and is found in Donna Hay's book Seasons on page 206. You can also find the recipe online here.
The ingredient list: apples, blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, water, vanilla, self-rising flour, butter, milk, coconut, rolled oats, and confectioner's sugar for dusting (optional).
Cobblers, crisps, buckles, etc. are all delicious, an easy fun way to use fruits in season or out. They are quick to throw together and bake when you realize at 4:00 p.m. that maybe a dessert would be nice for dinner. This recipe is all of those things, easy, simple, fast, delicious. I was trying to think if I had ever had the combination of apples and blueberries in one dessert and I couldn't think of a single time before this. They went well together, don't know why I haven't seen this combination before, but I haven't.
The blueberries turned the whole fruit mixture purple so it was kinda fun eating purple apples in the end. The topping was more biscuit-like than cake-like so that was a nice change as my other baked fruit desserts of this nature seem to have a more cake-like or streusel-type topping. The recipe suggested dusting the cobbler with powdered sugar but Mark prefers whipped cream and he was here and she was not, so whipped cream it was rather than the powdered sugar. It tasted wonderful with the whipped cream. Definitely repeat-worthy.
