Your lifestyle, your quirk
My first memory of cooking was when I lived in South Africa. I have no clue how old I was, though my mother will be able to tell you, of course. I remember it was at a place that was shaped like a cottage. It was an art studio, as well – the Ernest Ullman Center in Sandton, South Africa. I played percussion there, and my mother learned bridge and French within its halls. I believe this is where my foundations for cooking began, with the loving support of my mother and grandmother.
The first dish that I actually prepared and still prepare to this day was an apple cobbler. My mother was so proud of me. Keep in mind I was probably eight years old!
This dish will ignite every wonderful memory in your life, and fill your house with an scent and warmth. Don’t make it for yourself – make it for your family and friends!
In a medium bowl, combine apples, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, vanilla and water. Turn into a lightly buttered 9-inch square pan. Dot apples with 1 tablespoon butter.
Combine all topping ingredients. Beat with wooden spoon until batter is smooth. Drop batter in 9 portions, over the apples, spacing evenly. Batter will spread during baking. Bake 35 to 40 minutes at 375 degrees, or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.
Until next time…Samantha Bann
