    Spiced Date and Apple Cobblers

    Classic comfort puddings don't get much more scrumptious than this. The dates give the filling a gooey sweetness and the cobbler topping is softer and more crumbly than the traditional firm scone top.

    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes 45 minutes
