An easy individual cobbler with cinnamon apples and a simple to prepare topping.
  • 2 x 11cm wide cast iron dishes
  • 2 eating apples, peeled and diced into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1½ tsps of cinnamon
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 50ml water
  • 50g walnuts, chopped roughly
  • 130g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 50g very cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 75ml boiling water
  1. Preheat your oven to 180c / gas mark 4.
  2. Toss the diced apples in the maple syrup, cinnamon and caster sugar. Add a splash of water and then sprinkle the walnuts on top. Arrange into the dishes and set aside while you prepare the cobbler top.
  3. For the cobbler top, mix the plain flour and baking powder in a bowl. Rub in the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs. Mix in the caster sugar. Create a well in the centre and add the sour cream and then the boiling water. Mix with a fork until it comes together, it should have a droppable consistency - like slightly denser cake mixture.
  4. Using a tablespoon scoop up some of the cobbler batter and dollop on top of the dish, two tablespoons per dish. Sprinkle the top with a little caster sugar.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the apples are cooked and the cobbler top is golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve immediately with a drizzle of double cream.
