for filling:

  • 6 medium sized gala apples or other apples suitable for cobbler
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg optional

for the batter (topping):


to prepare the apple filling

  • Peel and core the apples and slice them in slightly thick slices.
  • Melt the 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan and add the apple slices.
  • Saute the apples in the butter for about a minute. Add in the brown sugar, cinnamon powder & nutmeg for the apple filling, mix everything well and keep this mixture aside.

to make the batter

  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients first - flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt until all ingredients are evenly mixed.
  • In another bowl add the melted butter and add the sugar, mix very well.
  • Also add the milk & vanilla extract to the butter sugar mixture, mix everything well together.
  • To make the batter, transfer the wet ingredients mixture slowly to the dry flour mixture and mix in.
  • Also add the ¼ cup of brown sugar for the batter and mix everything well to form the batter. Do not overmix but make sure there is no dry flour in the batter and all the ingredients in the batter are well blended.

to make the cobbler

  • Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare a pan greased with little butter and layer the apple filling mixture in a single layer.
  • Pour the prepared batter over the apple filling and using a spoon, spread the batter evenly across the pan to almost cover the apples, and then gently mix in the batter a little so some of the apple slices are visible outside.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 to 60 minutes of time until the cobbler is baked and the apples look juicy and the top is golden brown in color. One tip to make the perfect apple cobbler is to check the apple cobbler after about 35 minutes of time, and if the topping begins to brown, cover the pan with a foil and bake for the remaining time which will help to retain the moisture content of the dish, making it more delicious and juicy!
  • Allow the apple cobbler to cool down slightly, then scoop out and serve the slightly warm apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream or any ice cream of your choice!
