Apple Cobbler with warm cinnamon apples and a golden cobbler crust. Top it off with whipped cream or yogurt, the perfect autumn dessert!
Apple Cobbler is one of my favorite autumn desserts! I love it more than cake and the good news is that it’s so much easier to make too. I prefer to eat it warm straight from the oven. Another of my favorite cobbler recipes is this Skillet Mixed Berry Buttermilk Cobbler, and for another fall apple dessert, try my Apple Cranberry Crumble.
This healthy apple dessert recipe is delicious, and you’ll never know it doesn’t have all of the butter and sugar that most cobblers ask for. You could make this recipe in a cake pan if you’d like to serve it for Thanksgiving, but I love the portion control that comes with making it in liners.
What is the difference between a cobbler and a crispy?
The Apple Cobbler and Apple Crisp are very similar except for the toppings. Cobbler is more like a cookie topping that you drop spoonfuls over the apples, and Crisp has an oat sugar topping.
There are two main parts to an apple cobbler: the apples and the topping. Let’s start with the filling ingredients:
- Apples: Of course you need apples to make apple cobbler. For this cobbler I use peeled and sliced Gala apples, but you can use Honeycrisp or Granny Smith too. You do you!
- Sweetener: I use honey to sweeten the filling, but you can use maple syrup or agave if you want.
- Spices: This cobbler smells like autumn thanks to cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Citrus: The fresh lemon juice brightens the taste.
- Corn starch: Corn starch thickens the filling.
- Water and salt
What you need for the cobbler flooring:
- White whole wheat and all-purpose flour
- Granulated sugar mixes into the topping and brown sugar comes on top
- Baking powder, baking soda, salt
- Butter, buttermilk, rapeseed oil
Is Gala a good baking apple?
Yes, gala apples are good baked apples. They are naturally sweet so you don’t have to add as much sugar when you prepare them.
Variations & Tips:
- Exchange the honey for stevia, monk fruit, agave or another sweetener.
- Feel free to use Honeycrisp or another sweet apple if you don’t have Gala.
- Two and a half pounds of apples is roughly six to seven apples depending on your size.
- Swap the apples. You can make this cobbler recipe with peaches or pears.
- Make gluten free Apple cobbler, sub the flours with gluten-free flour.
- If you don’t have custom casserole molds, bake the cobbler in a cake pan or 8 ”x 8” pan for about the same length.
- If you want to prepare, bake it the day before and heat it in the oven or microwave if you want to serve it.
- Take it to the next level, add a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt or whipped cream.
