Reviewed this for ZWT3. I loved this cobbler, it was easy to make and came out of the oven just as promised - bubbling and golden. The sugar had caramelised and made a fabulous sauce. The lime and ginger helped cut through the sweetness. I served it with fromage frais, a little fresh lime set and a mint sprig. Next time I make this I will add a bit more ginger and lime as I can't get enough of those flavours!

I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
