This sweet apple cobbler is topped with a soft, cake-like batter, and filled with tons of tender apples cooked in cinnamon and nutmeg. You’ll love this comforting fall dessert!


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 tablespoons (16g) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Batter

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

For the Topping (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon 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.
