YUMMYLICIOUS! The first two times I made it, I inadvertedly used baking soda instead of baking powder. I rectified my mistake next time I baked it and used baking powder as the recipe calls for. I found that the soda works SO MUCH BETTER. I also add nutmeg, cloves, ginger and raisins. I have an apple tree that has given me abundant fruit so I have baked this cobbler MANY, MANY TIMES. I get nothing but raves. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly. The baking time of 55 minutes is too long. The apples were way too soft. The top of the cobbler had cracks on the top of it. Read More

A very good recipe! I doubled it and put it in a 9 x 13 pan, and baked it 10 min. longer and it turned out perfect. So easy to make and was to die for. Thanks! Read More

Outstanding. I didn't have evaporated milk so I substituted a can of sweetened condensed milk for the evaporated milk and 1 cup sugar. Fabulous!! Read More

What a wonderful treat this was! I did find that it does have more of a cake like texture as another reviewer mentioned though. I had to omit the nuts for my daughter and I used half white sugar and half light brown sugar with a tsp of vanilla and some extra cinnamon and then did a very light drizzle of maple syrup over the apple before I added the flour mix. I think that maybe 55 minute was a bit to long for my oven. Next time i will start checking it after 45 or so. Thanks for the wonderful recipe! Read More

this recipe is excellent. the only change we made was to add the juice of 1 lemon to the apples, it helps with the browning of the apples and tastes great. i would highly recommend this recipe. Read More

I made this yesterday, and I have to say this is the bomb-diggity! I have no changes whatsoever, except maybe enjoy with a couple bottles of wine! As my grandpappy used to say, "It's so good, it'll make yer tongue slap yer brains out!" Read More

I don't know whether it's a real cobbler or not but it is amazing! I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and doubled the quantities for the dough as suggested by other reviewers. Too bad I didn't have enough pecans to sprinkle some on the top too... Read More

DELICIOUS! This has become my favorite cobbler recipe. Followed the directions exactly but had a little more apples than it called for so I put it all in a 9x13 pan. Family raved over it! Thanks for sharing! Read More
