Apple Cobbler

Cobblers are probably the most traditional Southern dish we have back home and I equally love them all regardless if  it is blackberry, cherry, pear peach or apples. This recipe is a really quick and easy way to make one. You can leave the dough in clumps like I have or flatten a bit to spread, regardless of what you choose they both taste the same and amazing. You cannot beat a cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top.

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
6 cups sliced apples, cored, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. For topping, in a medium bowl stir together flour, the 2 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.

2. In a 4-quart saucepan on high heat add apples, 1/3 cup sugar and lemon juice. Cook until boiling. Reduce heat to simmer and cover cooking for 5 minutes, occasionally stirring. Add 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch stir until cook until thickened and bubbly.

3. In a small bowl stir together egg and milk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just to moisten. Transfer hot filling to a 2-quart square baking dish. Using a spoon, immediately drop topping into six mounds on top of filling.

4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. If desired, serve warm with ice cream.

Yields: 6 servings

  5. Noor5/20/2012

    LOL I am not sure why the thought of it irks me I imagine its just like peanut butter. I like the thread like one but not the spread.

  6. muslimathome5/20/2012

  8. Noor5/20/2012

    Thank you all :) I would love to have a blackberry one its my favorite but back home we pick them in our yards for free here they cost and arm and a leg and some other parts :p but you get about 10 in the end sad :(

  9. New Wife5/21/2012

    muslimathome: haha I'm not the only one yay!!

    Noor: Yeah I prefer the thread one too, except the first time I tried it I was scared because my friend kept telling me its the "one like hairs" looool

    aww i went to get blackberries at the store and they were sooooo expensive... i was like O_o these are free back home you loonies!!!

    blackberry dump cake is my all-time favorite dessert I think, with ice cream of course

    noor does your family make dump cake? i dunno if that is the proper name for it, but you fruit in a pan, sprinkle sugar on top, then sprinkle boxed cake mix over that, then pour on some melted butter over all the top.

    Lol well I am not sure if you remember but we have an old candy in the South (the ones in those bags that are 2 for $1 and its almost the same and the taste is the same.

    I have never had dump cake but it sounds a lot alike.

  11. Noor5/21/2012

    btw I think the name dump cake is about a bad as a name as you could give a recipe lol

  12. Noor5/21/2012

    btw you all my husband pretty much hates Southern food :p

  13. New Wife5/24/2012

    do you mean these?

    loool yeah thats what i told my gramma and she said no it's accurate because you just dump everything in the pan :-P

    it definitely doesn't compare to my momma's doodoo cookies though (chocolate nobake cookies) lol, but I think my older brother named those. that really is the worst name ever...

    realllly?? there are some things my husband will eat biscuits, he will drink cold milk with sweets now (which i consider a huge achievement lol), mashed potatoes, and he loves barbeque and wings and casseroles.

    but still he hasn't got the hang of eating gravy or vegetables as a side, not in a salad or soup/stew lol.

    so when you make southern food its just for you and your son?
