I got this recipe from one of my foodie friend, Ping from Ping's pickings. Ping has nice page with many great recipes and pictures, in fact I bookmarked some of them ^,^
and this is one of her recipe I've been tried in my kitchen, Plum Cobbler, check on her nice page so you can find some great recipes also, who knows you might try some
Well, here what you need for making plum cobbler:
Yield 4 individual ramekins
- 3/4 cup brown sugar- Since I have sour plum, I add 1/2 cup sugar more
- 3/4 tbs cornstarch (you can reduce this to 1/2 tbs, I like my filling gooey)- I use 3/4 tbs
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tbs sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbs baking powder
- 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 oz cold butter, diced
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 cup cream
- 1/2 - 1 tsp grated lemon peel
1/2 tbs sugar
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbs cream
Toss together all filling ingredients. Place in a deep dish and bake in a 180˚C oven for 30 mins.
I mix and put all together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, grated lemon peel,ground cinnamon and diced cold butter in food processor, then pulse few times to perform resembles breadcrumbs.
In other small bowl, whisk together egg yolk and 1/4 cup cream. Then I Pour egg+cream mixture slowly through the food processor funnel and pulse few times more until just combined.
My note: the dough slightly flabby and soft, I have no idea is it suppose to be like that? Ping, what do you think?
Refrigerate until the filling is ready.
Remove filling from the oven, give it a stir , I spooned the filling into 4 individual ramekins, rolled the dough into thick ropes and coiled them around the top.
My Note: I had difficulty in this part, since my dough was flabby and soft, the dough sink inside ramekins, so my cobbler was't as pretty as Ping's :(
Brush with cream. Sprinkle with mixture of 1/2 tbs sugar and 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon.
Bake in oven for about 20 - 25 mins until golden browned.
My Note: I bake on 180 deg C about 30 mnts.
