Rated as 4.73 out of 5 Stars

"Tart, firm apples bake to juicy tenderness under a delicious topping, which is a cross between cake and biscuit. This goes really nicely with a custard sauce such as Bird's Custard®."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir apples, 2/3 cup sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together; distribute apple mixture into a 9x9-inch baking dish that is at least 2 inches deep.
  3. Whisk flour, remaining 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Stir egg, cream and melted butter together in a cup; pour egg mixture into flour mixture and stir until all ingredients are moistened. Using the back of a spoon, spread batter over apple mixture to seal apples in completely.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 50 minutes.

I made this as directed except for the sugar. I reduced the sugar by almost half (it's just what I always do). I also used brown sugar instead of white in the granny smith apples mixture because...

Very easy and delicious! I used a casserole dish and a little less sugar and it was great. I wasn’t able to spread the batter to cover my apples but once it baked the dough fluffed up and covere...

YUM YUMYUM! I didn't have a 9 by 9 pan so used my 9 by 13 and increased my apples to fill it up (probably about 10 cups), every thing else the same except only had 2% milk and cut the sugar ba...

Tastes really good for such a simple recipe. And it's pretty forgiving - I realized after 15 min that I'd forgotten to add the sugar to the biscuit topping, so I did a heavy sprinkle of cinnamo...

Yes, I will make this cobbler again. After reading previous reviews, I increased the amount of apples to 6 cups and made a double batch of topping. It came out finger licking good! I also use...

This was a hit with my family! I put a little less sugar in and more apples.

I have never made a cobbler or really baked anything. Substituted flour with GF flour substitute but otherwise did the recipe. Got rave reviews from everyone.
