Apple and Cheshire cheese cobbler

Apple and Cheshire cheese cobbler

Cheshire cheese may seem like a strange addition to this dessert but the slight saltiness of the cheese cuts through the sweetness of the apples perfectly. Serve with crème fraîche.

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. Place the apples in a pan with the sugar, butter and cinnamon and cook gently until just tender and caramelised. Spoon the apples into a pie dish. Discard the cinnamon stick.

  3. For the topping, blend the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and butter in a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

  4. Add the soured cream and pulse until the mixture comes together as a thick dough.

  5. Place spoonfuls of the cobbler dough on top of the apples, then sprinkle over the crumbled cheese.

  6. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until crisp and golden-brown.
