Apple Cobbler

Easy Apple Cobbler

This easy apple cobbler makes me so incredibly happy. It’s the tastiest dessert for the best time of year – FALL.

Is fall the best or what? Making warm sweet desserts is the best when the weather gets a little crisp outside. And speaking of crisp, this apple cobbler is just that! That crunchy crispy topping compliments the soft golden apples perfectly. We’ve all decided it is the easiest and best apple cobbler recipe we’ve ever tried!!

The spices in this cobbler give it that warm comforting feeling of the changing seasons. The flavor combination of cinnamon and apples is to die for. I promise you will go crazy for this apple cobbler dessert. And anyone that tries this dessert is bound to love it. I mean, what’s not to love about warm gooey apples topped with a sugary and butter topping?

Another great thing about this cobbler is that it’s a cinch to make. It’s the perfect alternative to apple pie when you don’t have time to make a homemade pie crust. The crumble topping is so delicious you won’t even miss the pie crust. 😉

You’ll need about 7-8 large tart cooking apples.

What kind of apples do you use for apple cobbler? We prefer Granny Smith but these other apples work great too!

  • Honeycrisp
  • Golden Delicious
  • Fuji
  • Gala
  • Cortland

Peel and slice them to ¼ of an inch thick. This will make about 9 cups of sliced apples. Place the apples into an un-greased 9×13 inch baking dish.

In a small separate bowl mix together the sugar and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.

Apple Cobbler Crumble

The crumble topping is the best part right? Here are the apple cobbler crumble ingredients you’ll need:

  • cinnamon
  • flour
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • butter

And here’s how you make it. Combine the remaining cinnamon, the sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Mix until you get coarse crumbs. Spread this mixture over the apples evenly. Melt the 2/3 cup of butter and pour it over the entire dish. Put it in the oven at 350 degrees and bake for 50-60 minutes until its lightly browned on top and apples are tender.

Serve this baby warm. I like it right out of the oven with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. I actually like it cold too. Or warm temperature. Basically I could eat this dessert anytime, anywhere, and at any temperature.

Does apple cobbler need to be refrigerated?

That’s what we do! We cover and store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How to reheat apple cobbler?

Put chilled cobblers in the oven and bake at 375 for about 25 minutes or so.

What’s the difference between a cobbler and a crisp?

Cobblers typically have more of a dough or biscuit topping while crisps have more of a topping that usually includes oats (check out our Apple Crisp recipe HERE).

How to make apple cobbler with cake mix?

We love this Pillsbury version that includes yellow cake mix.

    You may not remember my comment on the carrot cake you posted a while back, but i made it as a 4-layer cake (simply doubling your recipe) for our son’s wedding on the 16th and it was amazing! everyone raved endlessly that is was the most delicious and moist carrot cake they had ever eaten. so thank you for that recipe. we had a gathering for everyone at our house the day after and i made your apple cobbler. I am a cobbler over crisp fan any day and searched a few of my top bloggers and yours looked like a winner. again……….we were all blown away. this will forever by my go-to recipe for apple cobbler/crisp from now on. hands down, the best i have ever had and i have been baking for 30 years, trying many different versions. watching our youngest get married will be a cherished memory for us, but your recipes made it an even more memorable day. food is so closely connected to memories and our food rocked! we have sent them on a 3-week honeymoon to japan and when they come back they said, and i quote, we’d like another carrot cake and you can make it smaller if you want. UGH!! i (we) have created monsters. thank you again for your wonderful recipes and i really like the redesign of your blog.

    I’m a big fan of apple anything. My Grandmother loved apple pie and I can understand why. This is a quicker version but just as good!

    A friend of mine recently brought me some apples from her parents orchard in CA. I knew they would be perfect for this recipe. Cobbler is one of the easiest recipes that create such a delicious and warm dessert. I thought your recipe was a good balance of tart apples and sweetness.
