spiced berry cobbler

I love this pud, the scone topping makes nice change from crumble or pastry & the spices are lovely & warming. A fantastic dessert for a cold day! Serve with custard or ice cream. I used Basics/Value frozen berries & there is no need to defrost them.


Serves 4 Approx 50p per person

Prep time 10 minutes Cooking time 40 minutes




400g bag frozen mixed berries

1 ½ tbsp caster sugar

1 ½ tbsp cornflour

½ tsp ground ginger

½ tsp ground cinnamon


For the topping:

150g self raising flour

35g caster sugar

30g melted butter

160ml plain yoghurt





Place the berries into a large bowl & add the cornflour, caster sugar, ginger & cinnamon.

Mix to coat the berries & then transfer to a buttered ovenproof dish.

Pre-heat the oven to 190C/Fan 170/Gas 5.

To make the topping sieve the flour into a mixing bowl, add the sugar & a pinch of salt.

Beat in the melted butter & yoghurt to make a smooth batter.

Spoon the mixture over the berries don't worry if there are gaps because the fruit will bubble up anyway!

Place in the oven for 40 minutes until the top is golden brown & slightly crispy.

Serve warm with custard or ice cream.
