Apple cobbler made simple! Tart apples, sweet crunchy topping…don’t forget the scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Is it too soon to start with the fall inspired apple recipes?
I mean, I love summer just as much as the next guy, but I made the mistake of searching Pinterest for fall decorations and, well, here we are with this easy apple cobbler recipe.
I have some new pumpkin recipes sitting in my drafts just waiting for me to hit publish, but I have a feeling y’all will revolt if I publish pumpkin in July.
But just know…it’s coming. And I’m ready for it. Brace yourselves.
Anyway, I feel like apple recipes can happen anytime of year. Agree? Please say yes. Because this apple cobbler is DIVINE.
The tender apples bursting with cinnamon, the crunchy topping, served warm with a scoop of vanilla. And maybe a drizzle of caramel, because WHY NOT.
How to make apple cobbler:
We’re going to start with Granny Smith apples. They’re nice and tart which keeps this apple cobbler from getting too sweet. You can use whatever tart apples you like best, though.
Peel and slice your apples up and then toss them in some sugar and cinnamon. I’m using a 1/2 cup of sugar, but I recommend tasting your apples before you add the sugar. You can absolutely reduce or increase it based on how sweet/tart your apples are. And keep in mind that the topping is sweet too, so don’t overdo the sugar. 🙂
Add your apples to a 9×13 baking dish and then prepare the topping.
This simple apple cobbler topping is made with just flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and eggs. You’ll stir everything together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Pour the topping over the apples – it’s a lot of topping because I believe the topping is the best part. 😉
Next, you’ll drizzle melted butter over the top of everything. Butter makes this nice and rich and allows the topping to bake up crispy, crunchy, and golden brown.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour – you want the topping to be golden brown.
I let this cool for about 10 minutes before scooping out a big portion and topping it off with some vanilla ice cream.
A drizzle of caramel sauce certainly won’t hurt things either.
