Apricot Cobbler


  • Around 5 or 6 medium sized apricots, stone removed and sliced
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 3/4 cup sifted self raising flour
  • 1/3 cup sifted wholemeal plain flour
  • 100g chilled unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC (160ºC Fan Forced).
  2. Lightly grease a 4 cup oven proof dish (or you can make yours as individual desserts like I did) and place apricot slices in them.
  3. Combine flours, rind and butter in a bowl and rub butter lightly into the flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs (or place in kitchen processor and pulsate until you have the desired texture).
  4. Combine egg and milk in a seperate bowl, then add to dry ingredients.
  5. Stir until mix is dough like then place heaped tablespoons on top of apricots to cover them entirely.
  6. Bake for 35 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve with some cream, ice cream or custard.
