This is a very easy recipe made with simple basics you usually have around the house. Perfect with after-dinner coffee or office pot-lucks. My sons also like to top it with whipped cream or ice cream. Change it up a bit by substituting a can of cherries or sliced peaches for a different variety of cobbler.

There was definitely too much butter the batter ended up too gooey because of the excess butter I think there was no separation really when I poured the batter on top of the butter. The taste itself it great (although I did add a bit of nutmeg to the batter as others suggested). I will try it again at some point with much less butter hopefully that will correct the issue.

Needed to cook a bit longer because I used fresh uncooked apples. It turned out so good my man ate I've 1/3 of it in one sitting. It's a shock because he doesn't care for sweets. I will make this again and again because it's so easy for me, a person with bad neck and back issues, to make. I'm going to try the batter with other fruits. Read More

Only change I made was not adding the extra sugar at the end. My husband says it's the best he's ever had and has asked for it again. I'm not a cook. But I love to bake. He has never asked me to make something again with such sincere enthusiasm! This will be a repeat dessert for sure at our house. Read More

This was good! I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the batter. To the 5 fresh, small Granny Smith apples, I added 1/2 cup dried cranberries.To the topping, I added 1/2 cup oatmeal, and 1-2 tablespoons chopped walnuts. I left out the water, because I forgot. ?? Read More

I'd give it 6 stars if I could. I followed this recipe to the 'T' and did not change a thing in the recipe. It turned out fabulous! I really thought it would be far too sweet but to my surprise and my husband's it was a real winner with us. Definitely a keeper! Read More

Good quick recipe. Used can of apple pie filling in place of plain apples. Reduced sugar to 3/4 cup and did not add sugar on top. This is very buttery tasting with 1/2 cup of butter. You may want to reduce if you do not like a strong butter taste. Read More

I made this on a whim after I realized the apples I harvested from the yard wouldn't amount to enough for an apple pie. I searched All Recipes and had all these ingredients all ready. I did mix it all together once in the pan (the butter at the bottom was kind of unsettling and I wasn't sure how it would bake out.) Is added sugar cinnamon and nutmeg to the top and it gave it such a beautiful "crust" on top and oh so tasty! My husband isnt much for sweets but really enjoyed this recipe. I plan to use it with other fruits from our back yard though the summers... pears plums and respberries! Read More
