Fruit Cobbler
Cobblers will never go out of style because they are easy to make and extremely rewarding! This Cobbler recipe has a topping which is very like cake, and can use fruit such as apples, peaches, and pears. The unusual topping made from vanilla yoghurt seems fattening, but is not!

4-5 apples, sliced (peaches or pears) mixed with demerara and cinnamon, optional

1/4 cup butter, creamed

cup sugar

1 egg, beaten

Ready for the batter . . .

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup white flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

cup milk


-500 gm ( qt) plain yoghurt, drained in a coffee filter

-whisk yoghurt with honey to taste (several tbls)

-add vanilla, cinnamon, liqueure, nutmeg

Peel, core, and slice fruit; toss with brown sugar and cinnamon, then place in greased loaf pan. Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar, then add egg and vanilla; combine well. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture alternating with the milk--end with dry (as for a cake batter).


Pour batter over prepared fruit. Bake at 350° F for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving with the yogurt topping, or with ice cream or whipped cream.
