Teeny Tiny Plum Cobbler / Minijaturna pita od šljiva

What to do when you have those few random pieces of fruit lying around? Take out your smallest ramekin and make a cobbler, that’s what! This recipe is customizable to no end, really. Easily substitute plums with whatever fruit you have at hand. The same goes for the topping, which in my case was a convenient way to use up the leftover ground walnuts I had lying around.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 small servings / 0.46 EUR per serving / 1.83 EUR for the whole)

5 plums, pitted and sliced (0.40 EUR)

5 tbsp vanilla sugar, divided (0.33 EUR)

1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon, divided (0.01 EUR)

¼ tsp ground nutmeg (0.01 EUR)

4 heaping tbsp all purpose flour (0.03 EUR)

4 heaping tbsp rolled oats (0.07 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

50 g cold butter, cut into small cubes (0.47 EUR)

2 tbsp ground walnuts (0.50 EUR)IMGP3742

METHOD:

In a small bowl, toss together sliced plums with 1 tbsp of vanilla sugar and 1 tsp of ground cinnamon. Set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, oats and salt. Quickly work in cubed butter with your hands, until butter breaks down and pieces are generally sized from oats to peas.

Spread half of your plums on the bottom of your ramekin, top with half of cobbler mixture, then repeat with another layer of fruit and layer of cobbler. Gently press everything down and sprinkle with ground walnuts. Refrigerate prepared cobbler for half an hour before baking, so the butter can solidify again.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 175°C. Bake for around 25-30 minutes, until crispy golden brown on top. Allow to cool slightly before serving with ice cream, milk, Greek yogurt, or on its own. Nothing beats vanilla ice cream, however. 😉

Što napraviti sa zadnjih par komada voća koji vam se povlače po doma? Uzmite najmanju posudu za pečenje i napravite minijaturnu pitu, eto što! Ovaj recept je beskrajno prilagodljiv i funkcionirao bi sa bilo kojim voćem. Isto vrijedi i za ono sa čime ćete ga posipati po vrhu, a što je meni bio zgodan način da iskoristim mrvicu mljevenih oraha koja mi je ostala od drugog recepta.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 male porcije / 3,43 kn po porciji / 13,71 kn za sve)

5 šljiva, očišćenih od koštica i narezanih na kriške (3,00 kn)

5 žlica vanili šećera, podijeljeno (2,50 kn)

1 ½ žličica mljevenog cimeta, podijeljeno (0,10 kn)

¼ žličice mljevenog muškatnog oraščića (0,10 kn)

4 žlice oštrog pšeničnog brašna (0,25 kn)

4 žlice zobenih pahuljica (0,50 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

50 g hladnog maslaca, narezanog na male kockice (3,50 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih oraha (3,75 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U maloj zdjelici pomiješajte narezane šljive, 1 žlicu šećera i 1 žličicu cimeta pa stavite na stranu. U drugoj zdjelici pomiješajte preostali šećer, cimet, muškatni oraščić, brašno, zobene pahuljice i sol. Prstima brzo umiješajte narezani maslac dok se na razbije na grudice veličine od zobene pahuljice do zrna graška.

Na dno posude za pečenje rasporedite pola šljiva, posipajte sa pola ‘tijesta’, pa ponovite sa ostatkom šljiva i ‘tijesta’. Sve nježno utisnite u posudu i po vrhu posipajte mljevene orahe. Stavite pitu na barem pola sata u hladnjak prije pečenja, kako bi se maslac ponovno stisnuo.

Kad želite peći, zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C. Pecite 25-30 minuta, dok se na vrhu ne uhvati hrskava, zlatno-smeđa korica. Mrvicu ohladite prije posluživanja, a jedite uz sladoled, mlijeko, grčki jogurt, ili samo bez ičega. Ali ništa nije bolje od sladoleda od vanilije. 😉
