Plum cobbler with hazelnut and oat crumble topping

┬áToday’s quick bake, Plum cobbler with hazelnut and oat crumble topping, from Short and Sweet by Dan Lepard. Hate to say it but Instagram does make it look lovely. I went off instagram over summer when sharing photos was made compulsory but now might start using it again. I made the cobbler/crumble hours ago and we actually had it for breakfast, which was rather decadent. Didn’t have time to post earlier as was in a rush. Cobbler/ crumble was lovely, good crunch from hazelnuts.

I was planning a different breakfast, sort of a hash made with leftover salt beef brisket and mash from Hugh FW’s Three Good Things but run out of time as we had tickets to see the new Bond film. I was also making sourdough and had to time the final proving while we were out watching the film. So, today’s been a bit chaotic. Film was OK, think I liked it more than some of the recent Bonds, loved the cinematography but then Roger Deakins is always brilliant and I also liked how it was a return to basics. It was a bit slow though at times and Bond shouldn’t be slow, perhaps I was willing it to get on with it as had sourdough waiting to go into the oven…

Now, back at home, sourdough done and the salt beef hash/cakes are chilling. Back to kitchen, making lasagne with cavolo nero and mushrooms (another River Cottage Veg recipe). Long walk tomorrow planned, must walk off all this food…
