Warm cinnamon and nutmeg enhance the ultra-comforting flavor of this classic dessert for a completely homemade Apple Cobbler that everyone will devour! The fluffy cobbler and sweet apples are truly the stuff dreams are made of!


For the Apple Filling

  • 5 cups (595g) thinly sliced granny smith apples (about 4 large apples) – I used granny smith and honeycrisp
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp (140g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (16g) all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

For the Batter

  • 1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (207g) sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) milk
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (112g) unsalted butter, melted

For the Topping (Optional)

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the apples to a saucepan and stir to combine. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes to melt the sugar and release some apple juices.
  3. Remove apples from heat and pour everything into a 9×13 pan. Spread evenly, then set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add the milk, egg yolk, vanilla extract and butter and mix until well combined.
  6. Pour the batter evenly over the apples.
  7. Combine the cinnamon and sugar for the topping and sprinkle over the top of the batter.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
  9. Remove from the oven to cool for 5-10 minutes, then serve warm.

  • To Store & Reheat: Tightly cover the cooled cobbler with plastic wrap and keep it at room temperature for up to 24 hours – or in the fridge for 4-5 days. Microwave individual servings in a heat-proof dish for 20-30 seconds before enjoying.
  • To Freeze: Apple cobbler is best fresh, but it still tastes amazing when frozen and reheated. Transfer the cooled cobbler to a freezer-safe container and freeze it for 2-3 months. Thaw it out in the fridge before reheating.
