I have recently been looking for something a bit more interesting to do with pork…

The weather has been really hot recently and my raspberry canes have suddenly become covered in raspberries. I had a crop of about three last year so was really pleased when I suddenly found lots appearing. When Flora challenged me to come up with a recipe using Flora it seemed a good opportunity to use them.
There is something about raspberries and strawberries that just make you realise it is summer. They have a succulent taste which is perfect for the sunny weather. Raspberries are great for lovely summer desserts. A pie would be nice but is a bit too heavy when it is sunny. Reaching though my recipe books I found a few recipes for cobbler. This has a fruit base with a type of shortbread type pastry placed on top. I have never made a cobbler before so thought I would give it a try. I put a few recipes together to come up with a peach and raspberry cobbler recipe. You can see my trip to shop for ingredients in my google plus album.
Making Peach and Raspberry Cobbler
The first challenge was picking the raspberries. I sent my son out but the dog thought it was a game and started chasing him round the garden.
We did manage to get a couple of cups full of ripe raspberries and there are still some ripening on the bush. Time to get cooking. First of all we chopped up the peaches. My son had to concentrate hard on this task.
We chopped the peaches into small pieces and put them in an oven proof dish. The raspberries and sugar were added.
Next I had to make the dough for the top of the Peach and Raspberry Cobbler. Cream together the I creamed together the sugar and flora then added the flour and eggs. I found using the flora was much easier then using butter as it took far less time to make a dough. Finally knead the dough into a ball to make the topping.
After rolling out the dough it was torn into pieces and put on top of the cobbler in a random fashion. We then put it into the oven to bake.
Serve the peach and raspberry cobbler with ice cream for a lovely summery dessert. If you have plenty of raspberries you could use more of them by making raspberry ice cream or raspberry ripple ice cream. This cobbler was a big hit with all the family and I will be making it again.
