How to Make Easy Apple Cobbler


Whenever you bake an apple dessert–whether it be for an apple pie or apple cobbler–you want baking apples. My favorite, easy-to-find apples are honey crisp apples and gala apples.


Crisp, crumblers, cobblers. What’s the difference? They’re incredibly similar. Basically they’re sliced, diced or whole fruit at the base of a baking dish. Usually tossed with a thickener (either flour or corn starch or tapioca starch), sugar, lemon juice and other flavorings. And then they’re topped with something and then baked.

  • Crisps – typically have something that makes it—yep—crisp on top. Think rolled oats, diced nuts, butter, and flour. Crisps are usually topped with a streusel like topping.
  • Cobbler – some cobblers are topped with drop biscuits, other times they’re topped with more of a looser batter.
  • This is obviously the latter. And we’re not making drop biscuits, instead we’re making a looser-type batter that resembles more of a pancake batter. But with a strong butter flavor

Apple Cobbler Recipe

Crunchy apple dessert, an easy-easy dessert with which you can take advantage if you have apples at home. They serve even if they are mature. The ingredients cannot be cheaper and more common, but the result is worth it. In another article we made bread pudding . Today we tell you to make a crispy apple dessert.

Irresistible apple dessert, the ingredients are very easy to find and the preparation time is very fast. Ideal to pamper your little ones on their last days of vacation.

Ingredients: (8 servings)

  • 6 green apples
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia + 1 teaspoon of drinking water
  • 1/4 cup dehydrated blueberries (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Preparation method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. Peel and chop the apples into small squares.
  3. For the filling: Mix the apples, cinnamon, vanilla, stevia with water and blueberries. Place at the bottom of the refractory where you are going to bake it (they can be individual souffle cups).
  4. For the topping: Mix the flour and the coconut oil. Add over the apple mixture.
  5. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, until the surface is browned.


Here are some questions, I’m sure you’re asking yourself! Can you make a biscuit topping? Sure, but this isn’t that recipe per se so I would look for a recipe like that and use the apple spiced portion of this recipe.

Would this topping work with a peach cobbler or other fresh fruit? Absolutely. Though just a heads up, you’ll need to use a more of a thickening agent than flour (what we have here) because peaches and berries are juicier than apples. Berry fruit cobblers definitely have different ratios because of this.


Perfect Apples for Baking: I used a combination of these first two, but here is a list of apples that are great for baking: Gala Apples, Honey Crisp Apples, Granny Smith, Northern Spy, Braeburn, Fuji. Individual Cobblers: This recipe can be adapted to more of a personal-serving size. Feel free to divide the fruit amongst 6 to 8 ramekins and then top it with the batter topping. If doing this in ramekins, you might want to dice the apples, vs. slices since they might not fit. Bake them on a sheet pan for about 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown on top.
