Autumn = the season to indulge on pies; the reason being all the windfallen fruits gathering outside. By chance, I stumbled over a little gold mine of blackberries the other week which resulted in about two litres of beautiful berries now gathering up half the space of my freezer. (Albeit a tiny freezer.)
They are decreasing at a steady pace though, as they go so well in a fruit cobbler with apples and cardamom. Which so just happens to be ridiculously easy to make. Here’s how:
APPLE & BLACKBERRY COBBLER
→ 1 dl flour
→ 1 dl oats
→ 1 + 2 tbsp sugar
→ 100 g dairy free butter
→ 4-5 apples
→ a handful or two blackberries
→ cardamom + cinnamon, to taste
→ dairy free ice-cream, for serving
1. Pre-heat oven to 225°C.
2. Grease a pie dish.
3. Core the apples and slice them up thinly. Place apple pieces at the bottom of your pie dish. Sprinkle the blackberries over, followed by a tablespoon or two of sugar. If you wish, you may also sprinkle some cinnamon on top, and cardamom of course!
4. Separate the butter in a big bowl with the flour, oats and sugar and use your hands to form it into a grainy dough. Spread evenly over the fruits + berries.
5. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the crust has a nice goldeny brown colour.
6. Serve warm topped with some vanilla ice cream.
