i also did this recipe using frozen forest fruit. i soaked the fruit first in 150ml of warm water as tinned fruit has juice to add turned out just as nice - 16 Jan 2015


I've never made or even had a cobbler before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I added cinnamon into the sponge mix and it came out super delicious and amazing. I'll definitely be doing this again, wish I had bought some ice cream! - 23 Feb 2014
