Ingredients

TOPPING

Method

1.

Cut pears into 1cm-thick wedges. Combine pears and cinnamon in a bowl. Divide among six oven-proof teacups (200ml-cup capacity). Divide blueberries over top. Place on an oven tray.

2.

To make topping, sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in sugar. Add butter and, using your fingertips, rub into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add the egg and milk. Stir to form a sticky dough.

3.

Tear dough into small pieces and place on top of fruit mixture. Sprinkle with sugar.

4.

Cook in a hot oven (200°C) for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until tops are golden.

5.

Serve hot cobblers with vanilla pouring custard if desired.
