This homemade Apple Cobbler is going to become one of your favorite fall desserts. Just a few ingredients to make this warm and comforting dessert.
Easy Apple Cobbler
Fall is just around the corner which means it is time for some serious apple dessert recipes. Pinterest and Facebook will be filled with all sorts of amazing comforting apple recipes. One of my favorite fall desserts is my Easy Apple Crisp. My hubby and kiddos request it frequently during the fall.
When fall arrives and apple desserts are baking in the oven, the entire house becomes cozy from the scent of the cinnamon and apples baking. I purchased bunches and bunches of apples this past week when doing our grocery shopping. I enjoyed a few with some of my Homemade Caramel and decided I would make a couple of other apple desserts this week.
After doing a bit of googling, I came across Paula Deen’s Cobbler recipe. The reviews were all so good. Since her recipe was for peach cobbler, I knew if it was good with peaches, it definitely had to be good with apples. Cinnamon and apples are such a good combination. I knew they had to be good with her cobbler mixture.
Wow… I was so right. The apple filling that I used for my Apple Cobbler was so super simple and paired so well with Paula’s dough mixture. After I grabbed some pictures for the blog, the entire casserole dish was wiped clean. My daughter and her friend ate the majority while leaving just a few small servings for the rest of us. I topped mine with some vanilla ice cream because…. ice cream is always perfect with warm apple desserts.
I had requests the very next day for me to make another dish of this cobbler. The entire family thinks it will be a recipe that is made over and over again this fall. I think we may add it to our Thanksgiving dessert menu. Plus… it will be great for fall potlucks too!
If you plan to make this apple cobbler, you will only need a few simple ingredients. I used fresh apples but you could make this recipe with a can of store bought apple pie filling too. Paula used self rising flour. If you have that on hand, you will not need the baking powder and salt. I did not have any on hand so made my own with those two ingredients.
INGREDIENTS TO MAKE HOMEMADE APPLE COBBLER
- All Purpose Flour
- Baking Powder
- Granny Smith Apples
- Brown Sugar
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE APPLE COBBLER
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Add the butter to a 9X13 baking dish. Now, place it in the oven until it is melted. Take it out of the oven and set it aside.
Next, peel, core and slice your apples. I used a Granny Smith Apple because it is my favorite for baking. Add the apples to a large bowl.
Then, add 1/4 cup flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to the apple slices. Now, mix until well coated. Set the bowl aside.
In another large bowl, whisk together remaining flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until blended. Next, add the milk slowly while whisking
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
Then, add the apple mixture on top of the batter.
Finally, bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown.
Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream. Or, enjoy at room temperature.

This is an easy and super delicious recipe and a great way to use up apples if you find yourself with a few too many on hand. I do agree with the others that you can reduce the sugar (even though I have a serious sweet tooth- I found it a little too sweet) and it will still be amazing with about half of the brown sugar. This recipe is a keeper and I’ll be making it again.
Love this recipe for apples! Have had great success at least twice. Can I make it with blueberries? If so, how should I adjust/measure for the berries? Thank you!
I followed this recipe to a T and had to bake it 20 min more I don’t recommend this recipe the bisquit mixture never baked
Love the Cobbler, thank you for sharing. I read the other comments about using half the sugar and that recommendation was right on. Love the spices and the brown sugar add a wonderful color. I made it twice and recommend 40 minutes vs 45.
Soo good! It’s the go to when craving something sweet and easy. These ingredients are usually always on hand ! Added some crumble ontop, paired with ice cream. Ufff.
Very good. Had trouble with all the ads. Sometimes covering most of the screen.
so easy to make, great cinnamon taste but not overbearing. Definitely a keeper
Add all the brown sugar, cinn., & nutmeg at one time. Explain
Absolutely delicious. Family devoured it while I was still waiting to cool lol. Thank you for the recipe.
Very easy! Looks and tastes amazing!
Could this be made with a box cake mix?
Can’t wAit to try this recipe! Do you think I can make a cobbler in an aluminum pan and then freeze it?
Cooking it now will let you know the results….
Excellent!!! I just made this as a special treat for volunteers who serve our community at a local pantry. The one girl loves apples. This was the perfect pick! Thanks so much!!!
Love it! I think there’s too much brown sugar though. Will adjust on the next try. Thanks!
I did. 1 cup brown sugar instead of 1 1/2 and it was great. Also with dry ingredients I cut sugar by 1/3 and it was not too sweet ,just perfect 👌
ust a few ingredients to make this warm and comforting dessert.
MY FAMILY LOVES ME FOR IT LOL! IM NOT A COBBLER FAN SO I NEVER HAD THE EXPERIENCE AND ONLY KNEW THAT NO MATTER WHAT, I WOULD BE COMPETING WITH HIS MOM, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. SO I TRIED SIMPLE TO START USING MY OWN APPLES FROM THE BACKYARD THIS SIMPLE AS COULD BE RECIPE, I MEAN EASY LIKE WOW, AND IT WAS SUCH A HIT THAT MY HUSBAND ALMOST FINISHED RIGHT OUT OF TBE PAN. I SAID JUST TRY…. LOL THANKS AGAIN
I gotta say…I made this last weekend. My stepchildren loved it so much, they ate the whole thing in 2 days. They loved it so much, one of them says that it’s his new favorite pie 😁👍
So Great! Perfect directions! my whole family loves apple! It comes out perfectly
Thank you for sharing!
Jen, 08-03-20 ,,, I just made this for my 87yr old diabetic friend and he say WOW THIS IS GOOD. Enough said, girl… HE enjoyed it with a scoop of ice cream.
Can you replace the sugar with Stevia? If so, what would be the ratio? Tnx
I cut the recipe in half for my husband and me, but I’m using the whole recipe when I make it today. My husband ate the whole thing when I halfed it. It was that good!!! Hopefully, I’ll get more than a taste of it today, since I’m making a whole one!!!!
I made this today and its very good. Thank you. I used nutmeg instead of ginger and no lemon zest..
I used less sugar because I used red delicious apples but was so good!
My 2 yr old daughter and I just made this and it’s amazing! We didn’t have nutmeg, but it’s still so delicious! We can’t get enough!
Loved it. I only had Fuji apples on hand so I was worried that it would be too sweet, but it was delicious.
Would love the recipes to have the measurements in grams too. Congrat with all
Gab, go to convertunits.com and you can convert recipe measurements to grams, litres, etc.
Recipe worked, did cut down on the brown sugar, (Didn’t have enough) but honestly would be best as written. Didn’t expect it to be low fat or low carb, not written as one.
So Good! I made this recipe for company and thought I would taste it before everyone arrived. By the third bite, I decided I better cover it with foil so I wouldn’t continue to eat it. I’m planning on serving it with vanilla ice cream and warmed Ghirardelli caramel sauce….if I don’t eat it before they arrive. Good thing I have more apples…I just might need them.
Thanks looks good, we’ll be giving this a try…
Recipe written well and easy to understand. The final product was solid, good but not remarkable.
Ate you using salted or unsalted butter??
Just wondering. Which apple cobbler was better. This one or your other recipe?
How many grams of butter will I need?
I have a question. The flavor is amazing, but the filling is dry. Am I doing something wrong?
Wonderful recipe and so easy. It will be a go to from now on. Thank you Jen for sharing!
Thank you for the recipe. I made it this afternoon and as I was putting it all together, I realized that it called for too much brown sugar and butter. In the end, it came out too sweet and greasy. I think the butter and brown sugar need to be cut in half at least.
Have you never thought of making a healthier recipe? This is swimming in sugar, not ideal for our ever increasing obese and diabetic population.
Truvia Baking Blend can be substituted 1:1 for sugar.
My 4 year old grand daughter and I just completed this recipe and it smells amazing and it’s easy enough for her to be a big helper. Thank you so much.
Just finished making this dish. It turned out great. Awesome recipe. I make peach cobblers all the time. But, never did an apple. Quick, easy, and simple. Thanks
This is great!! Quick question how do I store it. I just bakes it but bringing to a Super Bowl party tomorrow. Refrigerator?? Thanks !!
I made this last night, thinking what a weird recipe it was ; )
It was delicious! Fun and easy to make, I used whatever apples I had instead of granny smiths. I’ll definitely make it again (and again, and again…)
Hey there! I got your recipe in the oven right now and its smelling amazing! I’m trying to start a blog myself, I would love to do one on recipes. Thanks again!
I made this tonight for dinner. All rave reviews from a family of seven. Thanks for sharing. I’ll be adding this simple and delicious recipe to my faves!
I live at a Senior Community and we get fruit and vegetables from the Church. I took home a lot of apples. I am going to try this recipe. I have never used nutmeg. Anxious to try. Making two 9 x13’s . Will give this recipe a try. Can you smell this Delicious cobbler now! Thanks
Will try this recipe and my old standby of 15 years. Will post which one is more tasty before I post my recipe. Wish me Luck. How Fun is This. I Love to bake. Have my email. Will post comments!
Just wondering. Which apple cobbler was better. This one or your other recipe?
I made this for my dad for his birthday and everyone loved it! Easy to make and delicious. Thank you.
Thanks for posting this easy yet delicious recipe. We’ve had 5 apples in our fridge getting old for a while now. I have been promising my sons that I would make apple cobbler with them. Finally, I had the time. Everyone loved it!
Followed your recipe, and it came out AMAZING. Thank you!
Can this recipe be used with red delicious apples????
I made this the other day. This is hands down the best apple cobbler Ive ever had/made.
I have been craving an apple dessert. I had to stop by and check out your apple cobbler. I can smell all the amazing seasoning in it. Seriously, it looks delicious.
