This apple cobbler is made with Granny Smith apples and a cinnamon-spiced cake batter topping.


  • Apple Filling
  • 5 cups tart apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
  • Topping
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • cinnamon sugar for topping, optional


Heat the oven to 375°. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.

Combine the sliced apples, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, vanilla and water. Turn into the prepared baking pan. Dot apples with the pieces of butter.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the beaten egg and softened butter and beat until blended. Using a tablespoon, drop batter evenly over the apple mixture. If desired, sprinkle the batter with a cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Serve warm with cream or a scoop of ice cream.
Serves 6 to 8.

Sweet treat, Member GMK1017

Really liked this recipe a lot. It was a big hit at the party. I did half the sugar in both topping and body. I also added dried cranberries maybe a half to three quarters of a cup. The topping was not a batter so I also added some milk to bring the consistency to a level that I could pour it on top of the apples. I added a shake of Allspice to the topping also. Quick, delicious and easy to prepare!
