Quick Fruit Cobbler

So beautifully simple and delicious, an authentic pre-industrial dessert that is unbelievably fast and easy to make, and about as healthy as you can imagine! Of course, we like it best with ice cream :-). All you do is make up the usual oat scone mixture, except instead of forming it you crumble it over the fruit and bake. That's it!

Crumble mix

Fruit mix

  • 1 stick (½ cup) very cold butter, grated
  • 6 medium pears or apples, cored and cut into thin slices
  • ½ cup scone mix


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F; grease a 9 x 13 pan
  2. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg, add cream and whisk smooth
  3. Measure out ½ cup scone mix and set aside.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining scone mix with cold grated butter, crudely, using a fork; then gently mix in egg and cream mixture
  5. In the pan, combine sliced fruit with remaining ½ cup dry scone mix; toss to blend and spread evenly
  6. Crumble scone mixture on top of fruit and spread evenly
  7. Bake bake at 375*F until browned and the fruit bubbles slightly, about 30-40 minutes
