Southern Apple Cobbler

5 from 8 reviews

This delicious southern style apple cobbler comes together easily in about twenty minutes.  It combines fresh apples, cinnamon and brown sugar with a six ingredient dough that bakes up perfectly.


  • 5 cups apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Toss to coat.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Add butter to 9 x 13 pan and place in oven to melt.  It only takes a few minutes so keep any eye on it because you don’t want it to brown or burn. Remove from oven and let cool while you do the other steps
  3. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour in milk and vanilla and stir to combine.  Pour batter in pan over butter.  Do NOT mix in.  Spoon apples on top.  Do NOT mix in.
  4. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until lightly browned and set.  Serve warm or cold.  Leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator.
