Tuesdays With Dorie: Cobbling with Henry VIII



It looks like TWD will be linked to Henry VIII for now, as we make our way through The Tudors. This Tuesday's recipe is Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler (page 415), hosted by Amanda of Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake. However, I'm not a fan of baked cherries or rhubarb, not to mention I had a lot of leftover fruit. Without further ado, let me present a Nectarine/White Peach/Blueberry Cobbler:

Dorie's recipe uses a basic dough to form little "biscuits" and the biscuits ride on top of a puddle of delicious goo made from mascerated fruit and a smidge of cornstarch. It's not a cobbler for me without oats, hence the sprinkling of oats.

Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy. Optional, as always, are the rants of England's whiniest (and most libidinous) king.

I like the oats on top - they must provide a nice textural contrast to everything else. Very pretty cobbler.

Pamela said...

Looks great. The oats are a nice touch and it looks so pretty.

Amy said...

I love your addition of oats. Your cobbler looks great!

Natashya said...

Your cobbler looks divine. I think that using up leftover fruit was probably the original intention for cobbler.

Yummy! I was going to make a strawberry rhubarb crisp last weekend, but I couldn't find fresh rhubarb. I wonder if frozen would do it justice...then again I haven't actually had rhubarb since I was 8 so maybe I don't even like it. Brett, of course, is wary of it. Maybe I should just do like you did and pick some different fruits.

Nickki said...

That looks really good. I do like the look of the oats on top. Blueberries and peaches sound delicious :)

Prudy said...

It looks fab, especially with the hearty oat sprinkle.

The oats on top add a real old-world appeal. This could as easily have emerged out of my great grandmother's oven as yours or mine. Timeless food is a wonderful thing!
