|Blueberries and apple cobbler|
In a bowl, sieve the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and lemon zest. Rub the butter into it until it resembles crumbs. Make a well in the centre and add the milk. Mix it into a soft ball of dough.
Break this into 8 to 10 pieces, top it all over the dish.
Bake in a preheated oven of 175C /350 F for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and the dough is cooked through.
Let it rest for 10 minutes and serve.
If blueberries are not available, you may substitute them with blackberries or even raspberries. Goose berries and cherries may also be an option of choice. Add an extra tablespoon of sugar if the fruit is extra tart.
Frozen packets of berries are often available.
Use any hard apple in season. If you prefer to leave the peel of the apples on, simply wash them well.
While brown sugar is healthier, caster sugar may also be used.
Use your favourite cream cheese.
You can serve this pudding with vanilla ice cream or double cream if you desire.
