Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3.
  2. Grease a 1 litre (1_pt) pie dish with butter, then pour in the chopped rhubarb and strawberries and scatter over the caster sugar.
  3. To make the batter, sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl. Rub in the butter, then mix in 75g (3oz) of the sugar. Beat the milk and egg together and mix in to form a soft dough. Place in 'blobs' over the top of the fruit.
  4. Mix the almonds together with the remaining sugar, then sprinkle over the top of the cobbler.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 45-50 mins until the centre is cooked through. Stick a skewer into the batter- the cobbler is ready if it comes out clean.
