Jan's Apple Cobbler

1 9x9-inch cobbler


  • 5 cups sliced peeled tart apples

  • 1 ⅔ cups white sugar, divided

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • ½ cup table cream (18%)

  • cup butter, melted


  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.

Editor's Note:

Table cream is an 18% fat mix of cream and milk, available in Canada. For this recipe, you can also use half-and-half or whole milk.
