What's For Pudding?

"What's for pudding?" is a question which is asked quite often in this house....they all like a nice pudding!

Last night I was going to my monthly book club meeting where we all bring something nice to eat so we have dinner as well as a chat. I have to admit that most of the chat is not related to books as we all catch up with the latest news.
There are
7 of us & we all met when our children were at primary school, so saw one another every day at the school gates. We decided to get together & form a book club & have been meeting monthly for 10 years now! We don't see one another as often these days as our children are either in secondary school or university & no longer need to be picked up at school, so it is a great way to keep in touch on a regular basis.

Anyhow, I am known as the provider of puddings, so yesterday
I made a fruit cobbler - the recipe was given to me by my friend, Trish, and is really easy (and very tasty). Ideal for the weekend.

It uses just a few ingredients - you can use any fruit, but I used this pack of frozen berries which worked out very well. Serve it with custard,
cream or ice cream, whichever you prefer.

  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cups fruit
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg, well beaten
Melt butter in dish.
Mix all remaining ingredients and pour over melted butter.
Place fruit on top of batter.
Do not stir
Bake @180 C for 45 minutes. Let set 10 minutes then serve.


  1. Oh that looks lovely, bet your fellow book clubbers were pleased to see you!
    I really enjoy my bookclub too, we all met at antenatal class, lately we have just been swapping books about between one another....but I do look forward to the gatherings!
    Happy weekend to you.
