Mango Cobbler

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

This looks so yummy, I'm going to have to try it some tropical night or maybe make it for our next South Seas Cinema event!


Mango Cobbler with Coconut Whipped Cream

Serves 6
For the filling:
4 pounds ripe mangos, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
For the topping:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut chips
Coconut Whipped Cream, for serving

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place all the filling ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat mango slices evenly. Transfer to a 9-inch square baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the topping. Mix together the flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to rub butter into the mixture until it looks like coarse meal. Add the beaten egg and buttermilk, and stir until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Spoon the batter over the hot mango mixture in 9 evenly-spaced clumps

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown. Let cool for at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, spread coconut chips evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown. Remove immediately from the hot pan and sprinkle over the cobbler.
Serve warm or at room temperature, with a dollop of coconut whipped cream on each serving. (Be aware that the cream will melt quickly if the cobbler is warm.)

Recipe Notes

  • I use Ataulfo mangos — also called Manila or champagne mangos — because they are very sweet and not too fibrous. Other mango varieties can be substituted, but if they are quite tart, you may need to add additional sugar to the filling.
  • For a slightly less tropical dessert, serve the cobbler with regular whipped cream or vanilla ice cream instead of the coconut whipped cream.
  • This dessert tastes best the day it is made, but can be made up to one day ahead, cooled, and stored at room temperature, wrapped tightly with foil or plastic wrap.
Thank you to The Kitchn for this yummy recipe.
