Damsons are similar to plums and are widely grown all over the country. Try this recipe in the Autumn when they are in season. Alternatively you can swap the damsons for plums if you have these available instead.

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 4).

  2. Mix the stoned fruit with a tablespoon of the sugar in a pan set over a medium heat and cook until the sugar has dissolved and the fruit has softened a little, about 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, put the remaining sugar in a bowl with the flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well and add the butter.

  4. Crumble between the tips of you fingers, and stir in the milk. The dough should just come together in the bowl, but not drop from the spoon.

  5. Spoon the fruit into an ovenproof dish. Spoon the cobbler dough over the surface of the fruit. Brush with milk and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

  6. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown on top.
