This super-easy cobbler is great for unexpected company or spur-of-the-moment cravings. The juice from the fruit cooks out to produce enough moisture to make this cobbler delicious. You can also use fresh peaches instead of apples.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish.

    Advertisement
  • Mix flour, sugar, butter, and cinnamon together in a bowl using a pastry blender or fork until crumbly; reserve 3/4 cup flour mixture to use as topping.

  • Sprinkle a light layer of flour mix into the prepared baking dish; top with a layer of apples. Continue alternating layers of flour mixture with apples and ending with apples. Sprinkle top apple layer with the reserved 3/4 cup flour mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until apples are tender and topping is lightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow cobbler to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

If topping begins to brown too soon (before apples are tender), loosely cover with aluminum foil.

Delicious! I scaled this down to make it in six ramekins rather than the 9 x 9 pan (half the flour, half the sugar and half the butter, and left everything else the same - which was the perfect amounts). My son ate two of them for dessert tonight, and then asked when I was going to make it again! This was quick and easy, and is going in the recipe box! Thanks! Read More

Don't get me wrong. It tasted just fine...pretty good actually...but this was NOT what I was looking for. When I want cobbler, I want something a little more complex and with a little more depth of flavor. Maybe using brown sugar and/or vanilla would have helped? Also disappointing was the consistency of it. The topping was not crumbly and crunchy, nor breadlike (the two options for good cobbler topping for me). It just kind of sat there as sweet, cinnamon-tasting mush. Like I said: it tastes good, it was easy, and it might work in a pinch; but it was just not what I was looking for. Read More

I made this recipe for a group of friends and WOW!!! Was it a hit!! Everybody came in for some, and came back for more. Yes, as some of the other reviews stated there needs to be an adjustment in the cooking time. I worked with a 7x11 deep glass dish and needed to double the cooking time. But the end result was well worth it!! I will definitely make this again!! Read More

I didn't have any self rising flour on hand, so I followed a recipe here on all recipes, super easy. One of the guys at work asked for Apple cobbler, so I chose this recipe. I'm not a big fan of baked fruit deserts normally, but I really just wanted to eat the whole thing, and not share at all, it was so good! I did share tho, and everyone at work really loved it. I brought it in for breakfast, and the only problem was that there was not enough! Everyone wanted a second helping! I recommend making extra!! I'm making it again this morning and I know everyone will love it! Just don't over mix your batter, and don't use melted butter, just soften it, and you will do great! I love adding my own touches to recipes normally, but don't change a thing on this recipe. So simple, and my first cobbler was a success! Now I'm cobbler queen! Thanks for making me a star at work:)) Read More

I did make some adjustments while creating this delicious dessert that I think may have improved the taste and texture. For starters I kind of messed up in the beginning when I mixed the flour, sugar, butter, and cinnamon. I mixed everything together except the sugar and I had to cut it in afterwards. I also added about a tablespoon of chopped pecans to the dough mixture for a but of crunch. I used an 8oz can of fried apples instead of fresh ones which cut down the prep time (but not the cooking time.) I layered the apples and dough mixture & added a bit of flour as the recipe stated then put it in the oven at 350° for 18minutes. I'm so impatient i had to peek! And the dough still appeared gooey so I raised the oven temp to 400° for another 18 mins. Then I let the cobbler sit in the oven (turned it off) for another 2-3 minutes before I removed it to cool on the stovetop. I think raising the temp gave the crust a more dense flakey texture than if id left it at 350° and the result was delicious! I used a small Pyrex dish to bake it and the end result served 3-4 people. I even added a couple of oats (oatmeal) on the top because id always wanted to make Apple crisp. The and result was delectable! I guess a small mistake or alteration can make all the difference, and in this case it was a wonderful outcome! Read More

So easy! I actually am going to try baking at a higher temp next time and bake it covered with foil until the last 15 minutes and then brown it. I like my apples a little more done. Read More

I made this tonight because I wanted something sweet and I had just bought some granny smith apples. After reading the reviews I decided to bake the cobbler at 400 degrees and covered it with aluminum foil for 20 minutes and then let it bake uncovered for another 20 and the texture and consistency was perfect. It would have went great with some vanilla ice cream but we didn't have any. Will definitely make again. Read More
