Tuesdays with dorie: Johnny Cake Cobbler


Today it's Tuesdays with Dorie, where we baked a recipe from the cookbook Baking with Julia (Child). Today there were two recipes, from which we could choose. First there was the Johnny Cake Cobler (where I've never heard of before I made it).
The second recipe was a raspberry/fig crostata (and I've never heard of that one either).

So I'm going to make two blogs. One of the Johnny Cake Cobbler. And tomorrow the second one about the raspberry/fig crostata.

The Johnny Cake Cobbler is really delicious and easy to make. You make it with plums, I forgot the peaches (really did), butter and sugar. You spoon this fruit into small oven-proof bowls. You top it with a surprising element. The dough contains cornflour and cream as special ingredients.

You put the bowls in the oven and when the crust is golden brown, you can eat it. And then you get a real great taste. The sweetness of the plums, the creamy dough, the unique taste of cornflour and a little bit of salt. With a little bit cream of better ice it's simply delicious.

The recipe you can find in the book: Baking with Julia from Dorie Greenspan. Try it!

I like how you have done individual portions they look very pretty. I haven't tried the cobbler yet as I opted for the crostata.
