Have I mentioned how much I love fall? Have I mentioned how much I love apple recipes? I’m positive I’ve mentioned the first, but I’m not so sure I’ve mentioned the latter. Well, let me gush for a minute. Apple recipes are what memories are made of. Their smell reminds me of childhood. Between this healthy Apple Cobbler and Apple Bread, it’s hard to choose a favorite.
I consider apple recipes more fall than anything. However, they’re just as common during the summer, spring, and winter as well. This is because apples are one of the easiest fruits to get year-round. At least, they are here in the US. If possible, I like to get mine from a farm. I do the same with my blueberries when I toss together this Blueberry Sorbet or Keto Blueberry Cheesecake Cups. Alright, enough chatting and on to the good part!
How to Make Apple Cobbler
Prep - Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, grease your baking dish, and peel, core, slice the apples.
Add the spices - Layer your apple in the prepared dish and sprinkled with cornstarch, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Toss to mix well.
Make the topping - In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Crumble over the top of the apple mixture.
Bake - Bake the apple cobbler recipe for 40 minutes then remove, serve, and enjoy!
Tips and Variations
- Storage - Store in the pantry or fridge in a glass dish, covered in plastic. In the pantry, it will last about 3-4 days. In the fridge, it will last up to a week. If freezing, store in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
- Reheating - Reheat by placing back in the oven uncovered on 350 degrees until warmed through. You can also heat it up in a microwave-safe dish in singled out portions.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream - Vanilla ice cream is a classic favorite when it comes to being served with homemade apple cobbler. I usually do one big scoop per serving of apple cobbler. The mixture of the warm apples and the cold ice cream is otherworldly.
- Make it a crumble topping - You can slightly reduce the butter, cut it into chunks, leave it chilled, and then add it to the rest of the topping ingredients. This will make it more of a crumble than a breading top.
- Top with icing - Mix one cup powdered sugar and a tablespoon of milk together and drizzle it over the top. This adds a delicate yet delicious icing to your cobbler. You can even add the icing to individual servings instead of the entire thing, if desired.
- Use any apples you want - I used pink lady apples for my cobbler recipe. However, you can use any apple you prefer. Some people really like using granny smith due to their extreme tartness.
Common Questions About Apple Cobbler
What is the Difference Between Apple Crisp and Apple Cobbler?
The only difference between apple crisp and apple cobbler is their topping. A cobbler is made with a topping that resembles or acts like biscuits. A crisp, on the other hand, has a topping usually mixed with oats and flour to make a crumble. Other than this main difference, the bottoms of both desserts remain the same.
How Long is Apple Cobbler Good For?
If stored in the fridge, this healthy apple cobbler should last for at least a week or longer, if stored properly. It can last up to 3 months if covered well, in the freezer. If it’s stored in a cake keeper or in the pantry, I wouldn’t keep it for any longer than 3 days.
