Easy Apple Cobbler

by Milisa on October 18, 2011

Easy Apple Cobbler

This is classic cobbler.  I adapted this recipe from the one my Mother-in-law gave me from an old cookbook.  The cookbook calls it “Don’t Stir Pudding” because you pour everything into the pan without stirring.  I’ve made this with peaches, blackberries and apples and I think any fruit would be delicious.  It’s so easy and comes together with simple pantry ingredients and a little fruit.

I have an abundance of apples and you can expect a few more apple recipes coming up.  Until then check out this round-up of great apple recipes from Chris at the Keenan Cookbook, totally drool-worthy!

Speaking of drool-worthy, I want to  point out the bowl pictured above.  It is handcrafted by Lindsay of Suite One Studio.  I just love her porcelain pottery and wanted to give you the opportunity to check out her etsy store.  I could easily spend all of my dollars buying everything she makes!  She mixes her own glazes for amazing colors and her pieces are original and unique.  You can definitely see she loves her work.  So check it out, she has some really beautiful pieces and is constantly adding new items.  Now for that oh, so delicious cobbler recipe!

Easy Apple Cobbler


  • 8 cups apples,peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder


Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Combine apples, brown sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl, set aside.

Melt butter and pour into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

In a large mixing bowl, add flour and sugar, stir together.  Add milk and vanilla and stir until smooth.  Add baking powder, stirring until all combined.

Pour batter over melted butter, do not stir.  Pour apples evenly over batter and butter.  Once again do not stir.

Bake for 40-50 minutes until edges are browned and filling is bubbly.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.  Perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.

Oh man. It’s close to dinner time and I just opened this post; so trying not to drool. Can I skip dinner and go straight for dessert?

Thanks for linking to the apple recipe round up. Love seeing another apple post :)

Oh boy, I love cobbler! Tis the season for apples!

There’s really nothing like an apple dessert, no matter how much we try. Looks SO tasty.

There are far better things than apples in my eyes….No matter how easy I try.

This looks so great!

Warm cobbler and vanilla ice cream is one of my favorite things ever.


Cookin' Canuck October 18, 2011 at 11:01 am

To me, this dessert epitomizes autumn. Wonderful, easy dish!

I love that golden crust on the cobbler, now all I need is a big scoop of ice cream and a spoon!

Now THAT is an apple cobbler! My son loves apple desserts, so I will be making this for him!


Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray October 18, 2011 at 9:17 pm

I’m a fan of anything apples! Well maybe nearly anything. I haven’t had cobbler yet so I’ve got to get on that! :)

Wow does that bake up nicely. Delicious. Come visit. We have a terrific pumpkin panna cotta recipe to share.


Kristi Rimkus October 19, 2011 at 9:42 am

I am not known for my baking skills, but I could totally make this. I’ve saved it for the next time I’m craving cobbler. Thank you to you and your mother-in-law. :)


Keri January 21, 2012 at 9:51 pm

I made this last evening and it was a hit. My 7 year old told me “Mom this is the best thing I have ever tasted”. Super easy and quick to prep.


Ashley July 7, 2012 at 12:57 am

AMAZING but you can substitute the vanilla for maple syrup if your out like I did couldnt tell a difference!!!


Ashley July 7, 2012 at 1:49 am

OH I just remembered I cut the ingredients in half too I know this is sort of a cooking no no but it worked!


Theresa September 20, 2012 at 8:48 am

Way too much butter. Mine came out more like a custard even though I cooked it longer than it called for. It’s back in the oven after we ate it for dessert tonight. Hoping that helps.


Meg December 1, 2012 at 10:14 am

I, too, had an issue with 1 cup being too much butter. Thoughts??


lynn April 12, 2013 at 2:50 pm

Just made this …first of all way to much butter & milk for the batter to cook!! this is the second time I trusted a blog for a recipe and wasted ingredients…I will stick with professionals online such as foodnetwork before I do this again…


Rachel Walker April 16, 2013 at 3:10 pm

So I just made this (cutting the ingredients in 1/2) and it was wonderful! I did have to bake it for just over an hour, but it turned out great!


Erin April 20, 2014 at 9:34 pm

I just made this and I had to cook it for about 20 more minutes to get it golden brown on top. Other than that, it tastes great for being my first cobbler in college.


teena May 10, 2014 at 10:46 am

OMG I’m so glad I found this recipe! looked and looked until |I came upon this one which is exactly the one I wanted, where you put in the batter first and fruit on top, then the batter rises above the batter! thank you


audrey June 12, 2014 at 11:14 am

looks yummy… but mine doesn’t resemble yours! Wonder what I did wrong? All my apples stayed on top and look a little dry.


Charlene September 1, 2014 at 2:03 pm

I followed rhe recipe to the T and this was horrible. The best part is the crispy bottom and corners. The apples are dries up and the batter turned into something like baked paper mache glop.


Milisa September 2, 2014 at 5:08 pm

I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you. I’ve made this many times for my family.


Kristen September 20, 2014 at 10:42 pm

Just made this. Previous writers are correct, you need to bake this much longer. I baked mine for over an hour. The apples still weren’t completely soft, and I don’t think this was sweet enough. If I made this again, I would cut the butter and milk in half and add more sugar. Something happens to the sugar on the apples during baking. The apples were hard and bland.


Pamela Wilsey September 22, 2014 at 7:31 pm

I am making this recipe right now, and my boyfriend and I are super excited! I kind of find it odd that the batter goes underneath the apples, but I’m sure there is good reason for it! Will comment once it is finished and we have had some… can’t wait!
