Hello, young Padawan
Black and red, these colours remind me of good music, you know, the music of my generation, generation X, a whole program, lol. Even if the boomers knew these times better than us because they were teenagers or adults, they don’t have such a sexy name, lol. From 1970 to 1995, the greatest artists, rock stars, punk, and metal bands blessed our ears with “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll”, an entire era – epic, iconic.
I photographed this recipe while listening to Metallica, hence the slight overflow in the picture, due to a little too ambitious headbanging on “Orion”. Those who know this song know that at 3:58 we are in a trance, especially if you play bass. When you cook you have to try to stay focused, especially when you have something hot out of the oven in your hands. But I like this little dented cobbler, it’s rock ‘n’ roll. After all, punk said “do it yourself” and even if we did it ourselves, believe me, bellies are going to hit heaven with this recipe. For real.
In this grey weather, rain and cold, a cute regressive dessert (or for a snack !!!) will comfort us. And in addition, it will only take you a few minutes to realize it.
Red berry cobbler
For one serving
2 handfuls of the fruits of your choice, fresh or frozen (here, it was strawberries and blueberries)
1 vanilla pod
For the « cobbler » dough :
1 tsp. cane sugar shaving
1 tsp. coconut powder
1 tsp. almond or hazelnut powder
1 tsp. cashew puree – or the oilseed puree you have at home.
Preheat the oven to 356°F (180 ° C) in grill mode, rack high position.
In a saucepan over medium heat, pour the fruit cut into small pieces, if necessary (yes, if you have blueberries, don’t cut them, leave them alone, lol).
Split the vanilla, harvest the grains and put everything, grains and pod in the saucepan.
Stir and let reduce 10 min while you choose your film or series. If necessary, lower the heat halfway (if the fruit is fresh rather than frozen for example). set aside.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, put all the ingredients for the cobbler, namely: sugar, coconut powder, almond powder and, the cashew puree. Scrape the spoon used to measure the cashew puree with your finger, then crumble the mixture with your hand. One hand holding the bowl, the other stirring. You must be fast so as not to melt either the cashew puree or the sugar. In 10 -15 seconds, the job is done. set aside.
In your most beautiful bowl or ramekin, pour the fruit straight out of the hot saucepan, add the cobbler, and put everything in the oven to obtain a nice golden brown. We said golden brown, not burnt, it will take 2 to 3 min maximum, keep an eye on it because depending on the oven, it can go very very quickly.
You can, as I did, add a small strawberry cut in half on top to decorate, or the fruit (s) that you will have on hand, or a mint leaf.
You can accompany this recipe with a nice tea, for example. A sencha or matcha will go well with your cobbler. And for the craziest: add a little speculoos.
I leave you now, you have a movie to watch; don’t forget your blanket, your cat or your goldfish (but not both, because one risks to eat the other).
Good weekend to you, you stay home, but with this dessert, you will be fine, that’s for sure!
