It’s apple festival season, so I thought I’d share a really easy and delicious apple recipe. With a busy schedule, easy is good….but easy AND delicious is great!
I love apple dumplings, and this is a cobbler-like alternative. It’s chock-full of sliced apples, and topped with a sweet, crispy crust.
And since it’s made with fruit, it has to be healthy……..right?
So here goes! I started with about 9 medium apples. You can use any kind that you like…..you may need to add a bit more sugar if you use a really tart apple.
I peeled, cored and sliced them. Then, I tossed them with cinnamon and sugar. Yum!
I mixed the dry ingredients and then added melted butter and eggs and spread it over the top of the apples. I sprinkled the top with cinnamon.
I baked it until it was golden brown. Easy.
Apple Dumpling Cobbler
- 9 medium apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 3/4 light brown sugar, packed
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted.
- 1 Tbsp. + 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
– Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
– In a large bowl toss prepared apples with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tbsp. granulated sugar. Pour into 9 x 13 pan.
– In another bowl, mix flour, sugars, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir/whisk in beaten eggs and melted butter.
– Spread mixture over apples. (I sprayed the back of a spoon with cooking spray and smoothed it out.) Sprinkle with additional cinnamon. (optional)
– Bake 45-55 minutes….until the dough puffs up and turns golden brown.
My kitchen smelled wonderful! There is something about the smell of warm cinnamon that makes me feel cozy.
