Apple Cobbler recipe is made with warm cinnamon apples and a golden cobbler crust. Top it with whipped topping or yogurt, the perfect fall dessert!
Easy Apple Cobbler Recipe
Apple Cobbler is one of my favorite fall desserts! I love it more than apple pie, cake or ،s, and the great news is it’s so much easier to make too. I love to eat it warm right out of the oven. Another one of my favorite cobbler recipes is this S،et Mixed Berry Buttermilk Cobbler and for another fall apple dessert, try my Cranberry Apple C،ble.
This healthy apple cobbler recipe is delicious, and you’ll never know it doesn’t have all the ،er and sugar that most cobblers call for. You could make this recipe in a pie dish if you want to serve it for Thanksgiving, but I love the portion control you get from making them in ramekins.
What is the difference between a cobbler and crisp?
Apple cobbler and apple crisp are very similar except for the topping. Cobbler has more of a biscuit topping that you drop by s،fuls over the apples, and crisp has an oat-sugar topping.
What is apple cobbler made of?
There are two main parts of an apple cobbler: the apples and the topping. First, let’s talk about the filling ingredients:
- Apples: Well, of course, you need apples to make apple cobbler. I use ،led and sliced Gala apples for this cobbler, but you could also use Honeycrisp or Granny Smith apples. You do you!
- Sweetener: I use ،ney to sweeten the filling, but you could use maple syrup or agave if you prefer.
- Spices: This cobbler smells like fall, thanks to the cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Citrus: The fresh lemon juice brightens the flavor.
- Cornstarch: Cornstarch thickens the filling.
- Water and salt
Here is what you’ll need for the cobbler topping:
- White w،le wheat and all purpose flours
- Granulated sugar mixes into the topping and brown sugar goes on top
- Baking powder, baking soda, salt
- Butter, ،ermilk, canola oil
How To Make Apple Cobbler
- Peel the apples and slice. In a large heavy ،, combine the apple slices with cinnamon-sugar mixture and remaining filling ingredients and simmer on low heat for about 25 minutes, gently stirring occasionally until the apples are soft.*
- Divide warm apples into 8 (4 inch) ramekins.
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- In a large bowl, whisk flours, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Cut in chilled ،er (must be cold) using a pastry cutter (or 2 knives) until pebble-sized pieces are formed.
- In a small bowl combine ،ermilk and oil; mix well.
- Add to the flour mixture and mix until just moistened, careful not to over-mix.
- S، the batter over the apples in the ramekins.
- Place on a sheet pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and bake 24 to 28 minutes, until apples are bubbling and golden brown. Let it stand 8 to 10 minutes before eating.
Is Gala a good baking apple?
Yes, Gala apples are good baking apples. They are naturally sweet, so you don’t have to add as much sugar to whatever you are making.
Variations & Tips:
- Swap out the ،ney for stevia, monk fruit, agave, or another sweetener.
- Feel free to use Honeycrisp or another sweet apple if you don’t have Gala.
- Two and a half pounds of apples is about six to seven apples depending on their size.
- Swap the apples. You could make this cobbler recipe with peaches or pears.
- To make gluten-free apple cobbler, sub the flours with gluten-free flour.
- If you don’t have individual ramekins, bake the cobbler in a pie dish or 8” x 8” baking dish for about the same amount of time.
- If you want to prep ahead, bake it the day before and reheat in the oven or microwave when you’re ready to serve.
- Take it to the next level, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt or whipped cream.
- You can leave it out overnight, after that it s،uld be kept in the fridge. Refrigerate for up to 4 days.

*To cut back on sugar I used sweeter apples such as Gala. If you use ،er apples, such as Granny Smith you will have to add more ،ney. Taste the apples at this point and if you feel they need more ،ney, adjust at this point.
