Mango Cobbler

Here's the recipe I used: Mango Cobbler

We all know that I have never followed a recipe to the letter, so here are my substitutions: Substitutions
Lime juice1 teaspoon1/2 teaspoon vinegar OR 1 teaspoon white wine OR 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Maybe it doesn't say Italian White Wine Vinegar? Eh, Wev.

I didn't have the called-for 3 mangoes. I had 2, plus a quarter bag of frozen peaches. Microwave Defrost. Also, my mangoes, not exactly ripe. They were a little tough and a bit dry....but good enough for me.

I added a handful of Flaxseed and Soy hot cereal and an extra tablespoon of butter to the crust. I would have preferred a more crumbly crust though. Maybe next time.

I decided to leave the cobbler warming in the oven (off!) so the crust would set for sure, while I ran around town looking for an open store with vanilla ice cream. Success: Town & Country. I also picked up a coffee cocoa. It was all delish. The cobbler by itself wasn't wonderful, but good. Riper mangoes and lime juice probably would have made it wonderful.


  1. Gostei muito desse post e seu blog é muito interessante, vou passar por aqui sempre =) Depois dá uma passada lá no meu site, que é sobre o CresceNet, espero que goste. O endereço dele é . Um abraço.

  2. Sounds...interesting. I'm not 100% sure I like mango, but I've never had it in anything before. I need to cook more...

  3. That's weird...It posted under Scott's name...I guess that's because I'm using his computer. This is Sarah, btw :)

  4. Yeah, I assumed Scott wasn't yearning to cook more....

    I know a few people who don't like mango because of the texture. Once its cooked its alot like peaches.
