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®.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 50 minutes.

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 covered it all. Read More

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 back a bit I will be making this again. Read More

Very good. I doubled it and used a 9x13 pan. I used less sugar. 1 c. when doubled with the apples as some suggested. Disappeared quickly! Less in crust too. Read More

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 I was running low on white. As noted in the recipe I used 1/2 and 1/2 milk as a replacement. Very tasty! The topping is what makes this special. Served with a bit of whipped cream on the side. Delicious with coffee:) Read More

No changes this time except about 1/3 less sugar. Half the sugar would be just fine. Read More

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 cinnamon sugar. Came out fine. Yum! Read More

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. Read More
