Now that the weather is starting to cool and we’re a month into homeschool, it’s starting to feel like fall.
To me, fall is everything squash, spice, pie, and cobblers. As much as I love to make a good pie, sometimes I want to make something quick when I have a large gathering at my home.
This super simple apple cobbler is one that everyone seems to enjoy. It tastes of apples and spice and everything nice.
I especially like this dessert and make it throughout the year because it only takes me about ten minutes to make.
An Easy Dessert for a Fall Gathering: Super Simple Apple Cobbler
Making this cobbler is seriously a cinch.
All I do is toss chopped apples, cranberries, and spices together in a large bowl. Of course, if you don’t have cranberries, it would taste just as great without. I then place the filling into a pie dish over some melted butter.
In the same bowl that I mixed my apples and spices, I make a batter with a few dry ingredients and pour it all over the top of the apple mixture in the pie dish. I finish by sprinkling it all with large granule turbinado sugar.
That’s really it. After about 20-25 minutes of baking, I allow it to cool while I finish up supper for my family and friends.
Even at room temperature it tastes great and made even better by topping it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
It’s such a simple dessert to make perfect for a fall gathering.
An easy dessert for a fall gathering: super simple apple cobbler. It tastes great and is a cinch to make!
- 5 apples, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (sub 1/2 cup organic brown sugar)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp flour
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- pinch of salt
- 4 tbls butter
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- Turbinado sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350F
- In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the cobbler filling.
- Place the 4 tbls butter into a pie dish and place in the oven until it melts. Remove the dish from the oven and fill with the filling mixture.
- Using the same bowl that you mixed the filling ingredients in, whisk together all of the ingredients for the topping.
- Pour the cobbler topping over the fruit mixture in the pie dish.
- Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the juices are bubbling and the cobbler topping has turned golden brown.
Also, what I love about this cobbler is that you can make it with any kind of fruit you have on hand. On the same day I made this apple cobbler, I also made this blueberry cobbler spiced with a hint of cardamom.
It was a hit! For the filling, I used 4 cups of frozen blueberries that I had picked earlier this year. I mixed the blueberries with a 1/2 cup of turbinado sugar, 2 tsp flour, juice of 1/2 a lemon, and 1/8 tsp of cardamom. I topped it with the same batter as in the recipe above and baked it. It was delightful.
