MANGO COBBLER !

HEAVENLY MANGO COBBLER!! I think it's the beginning of the season for mangoes bcos prices are going up!!Before they run out of all the mangoes,I thought I would BAKE you a mango dessert!! It is relatively easy, and you cannot beat the taste of mangoes with any other fruit on this sweet Earth, in my opinion!! So bake it and let me know!!

Mango Cobbler:

Mangoes:
The mango is a tropical fruit of the mango tree. Mangoes belong to the genus Mangifera which consists of about 30 species of tropical fruiting trees in the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae.
Reference to mangoes as the "food of the gods" can be found in the Hindu Vedas and the leaves are ritually used for floral decorations at Hindu marriages and religious ceremonies.The fruit flesh of a ripe mango contains about 15% sugar, up to 1% protein, and significant amounts of vitamins A, B and C. The taste of the fruit is very sweet, with some cultivars having a slight acidic tang; it tastes roughly like a cross between a peach and a pineapple.More info at WIKIPEDIA.

Here is the delicious Mango Cobbler:

Here's How To Bake It:



YOU NEED:
1 cup diced mango pieces, (1 big ripe string less mango)
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp water to keep it moist
1 oven proof bowl










For Cobbler Crumb Topping:
2 tbsp chilled butter ( must be cold)
2 1/2 tbsp Plain all-purpose flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp Cinnamon pd(sweet not dalchini)
Pinch of salt
Pinch of Nutmeg pd











Mix mango,sugar and water,put them in a oven proof bowl. In another plate, mix all the crumb topping ingredients with your fingers to small lumps.Sprinkle crumb topping on the mango mixture.Heat Oven to 375F.This is how it should look before you put it in the oven.

Put in the oven on a baking sheet and bake for 25mins or until the top is golden.
I used Creme Brulee torch to make the top golden.You can also broil the top to get golden. Double the recipe if you want more than one bowl.
Garnish with mango pieces.You can also garnish with little whipped cream.

Here is how the torch looks to use on the crumble toping to caramelize it to a golden crunchy crust!

Priya Baskaran said...

Asha- I liked the way you presented the recipe man--- people with no interest in baking will try yours-- I am not a baking person but definitly would love to try yours:)

Keshi said...

hell Im running out to get some mango-anything!

Keshi.

Nee said...

Yum, YUM! Fabulous recipe Asha. I always thought a cobbler would need more sugar, but I guess in this case the sweetness comes from the mango itself, right?

Foodie's Hope said...

Thank you for the compliment, Anonymous!

Thanks Priya, it's so easy I made it within 35mins including baking time!

Keshi, that 'put you in romantic mood', made you run out to get some, isn't it?! :D

You are right abt sweetness of mango, less sugar thingie! See how fast you are 'DOMESTICATED' :D :D
If you use tart apples or peach, you do need to add more sugar,pulpy ripe sweet mangoes don't. But sugar, salt & chillies in recipes are always tweakable acc. to your taste!Baking it for THE BOY?? :)

Prema Sundar said...

Wow.. look at the mango pieces..would love to take a piece from that. mango cobbler sounds easy and simple to make.Thanks for the lovely recipe.

Krithika said...

This is a great recipe. Creme brulee torch ??? I am impressed !

Nee said...

Noooooooooo - say it ain't so! I shall resist the "domesticated" tag for as long as I can! :-)
This will be for me and Nah only! The Boy doesn't like mangoes (or most other fruits for that matter)- can you believe it?

Hema said...

Hi Asha,
I am not a sweet person;) but this really looks good. It has a crunch, no extra sweet added and made with mangoes! Perfect dessert.

mandira said...

Jayashree said...

Krithika ,I have all kind of little gadgets to make life easier.Instead of grilling, I burn the heck out of the topping with my magic torch! :D

Thanks Mandira, Jaya and Shilpa, didn't have much to do yesterday, so I did some baking!!

Hema!! I think you are a VERY sweet person, Hey! who wouldn't like mangoes?

Deepz said...

Asha, this looks very easy to make. I have never tried baking mangoes but will definitely try your recipe. Also I agree with you that mangoes are the best on the earth.

Foodie's Hope said...

Thanks KA! hope you will try making it...

Hi Deepz, usually mangoes are good enough to eat as they are but I thought I would give cobbler a try. Thanks!!

Menu Today said...

Hi Asha,
Really its tempting me to make.Colourful pictures and neat presentation.Thanks for sharing..

Archana said...

What a splendid idea !

Nandita said...

I love cobblers, more so for the ease of preparation...you know why cobblers and called so? because the crumb mix when spooned on top, after baking it has a cobbled appearance...
Have done an apple and peach cobbler before, and mango season is gone and out from Mumbai, will try it next season :)

Foodie's Hope said...

'Cobbler' I didn't know about that, thanks! I see now , I have walked on many cobbled stone walkways in England, many many times around castles!! Hey! looks like those, indeed!! :D

Mango cobbler was delicious, hope you will try year!

Foodie's Hope said...

Thanks Menu Today and Archana! It's one more way to use mangoes, isn't it ? It's really yummy!!

Sushma said...

Hello Asha,

Mango cobbler looks very tempting, Wish I could reach from these internet pages and get a bite of it.
Thanxs for sharing
Sushma

Foodie's Hope said...

Thanks Sushma, go ahead and take some if you can! I don't mind!! :)

shaheen said...

lovely and yes romantic looking mango cobbler. if only u had posted this before the mangoes became extinct here in the northeast.

HariPriya said...

hi asha...tht looks really wonderful...am sooo jealous tht u get mangoes ..but in japan we dont get mangoes...if we find them in any market one mango costs 10$(1000¥)...
anywayz thnx for sharing...

Lera said...

Asha, how did i miss this out ..Awesome Mango dessert,very similar to Apple crumble..wish I had this recipe earlier,it's too late to try now ,mangoes are no longer visible in Bangalore markets...:)

Foodie's Hope said...

Oops Shaheen! I should have posted it early! Lot of people are telling me that they are not getting mangoes anymore! In NC we still getting them somehow.Save the recipe for next year! Thanks...

PriyaH, I am surprised Japanese don't have mangoes, or that expensive! We live in close proximity to Mexico so we get plenty of fruits and vegs. Sorry Priya,but you can use any sweet fruit like bananas in the same recipe and try it! Thanks..

Lera Thanks! That's why you have to visit often, girl!! :D Almost missed it and it's too late for mangoes! You can use any fruit to replace mangoes, hope you try it!

Meeta said...

Asha, this really is gorgeous. And you were right it would go perfectly with my beef curry. But I think it would go with just about anything. We get mangoes throughout the year so I think I'll give it a try.

Manjusha Nimbalkar said...

Hey Foodies Hope,

Ur Mango Cobbler simply rocks.!!!!!

Foodie's Hope said...

Thanks Manjusha! Easy one, isn't it? :)

Meeta! lucky you to get mangoes all year round there! Many of them said I am late in posting the mango cobbler recipe bcos it's almost out of season!Hope you will try..thanks!

Anonymous said...

it looks yum!!!presentation is too good....my mother loves mangoes so would make this on her birthday

Asha said...

Hi ,thank you. I am sure your mom would love this.For us here,it's hard to get good soft mangoes but sometimes we do. Enjoy:))

des yu said...

hi! thanks for sharing this!m gonna make it as soon as possible...of all the mango cobbler recipes, i found yours the easiest to make...especially for a mom like me who's always in a hurry.
question: can i skip the nutmeg powder?i all have the ingredients in my kitchen except for that....;)

Asha said...

Yes you can skip Nutmeg, Des. Just add cardamom pd if you have or you can skip that as well. Mango has wonderful natural aroma and flavor of it's own, so you don't need the extra spices. Enjoy! :)

Pietzi said...

This was sooo delicious! I had this mango lying around, not knowing what to do with it and wanting something sweet for sundays breakfast.... Tadaaa Mango Cobbler :D Thank you very much!

Would you mind if I shared
