French Apple Cobbler

How would you like a easy bake cant-go-wrong dessert??? You want? then well here it is.

I first tasted this when my sis made it on a visit to my home. The entire family was absolutely floored by it. I always wanted to make it again but as most things I want to do that never happened. But when I read about Deeba's monthly mingle and the Apple & Pear Open Pie so reminded me of this dessert that I had to make it.

The recipe is from, however I am reproducing the same here for my furture reference. Afterall, its not everyday that you get a easy bake and reasonably guilt free dessert.

French Apple Cobbler

Serves : 6-8 generous Dessert portion


For Filling:

Green Apples - 5
Sugar - 3/4 C
Flour - 2tbsp
Butter - 1 tbsp,softened
Water - 1/4 C
Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
Salt - A pinch
Vanilla Essence - 1/2 tsp

For the Topping

Flour - 1/2 C
Sugar - 1/2 C
Butter - 2 tbsp, softened
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - A pinch
Egg - 1 lightly beaten

To make

1. Lightly grease/butter a baking pan (9 inch square)

2. Peel apples and cut into 11/2" cubes

3. Mix all the ingredient for the filling and put into the filling into the pan

4. Heat oven to 375F/185C

5. Combine all ingredients for the topping.Mix well but not for too long.

6. Drop the batter in small equal portions over the filling. Space evenly. The
batter will spread as it bakes.

7. Bake for 30-35 mintues till the crust is goldren brown.

8. Serve warm with whipped cream/icecream or cold just by itself.

Preparation Time : 15 min
Baking Time : 35 min

Just a few things you could keep in mind :

1.In the filling adjust sugar according to tartness of apple, if apple is not too
tart use lesser sugar

2.You can increase the cinnamon to 3/4tsp if you are really fond of the apple-
cinnamon combo

3.My sister skips the butter in the filling. The taste doesnt change much but I
feel it makes the filling a little drier.

4.You may replace the egg with about 3 tbsp milk in you dont eat egg. Egg eaters
please go with the egg.

5.Dont mix the topping too much. The graniness of the sugar gives a nce cruch to the
topping when baked.

I have to apologise for the pic as my camera has gone kaput and I took this photo on my phone.

I am sending this entry to Meeta's Monthly Mingle being hosted by Deeba this month.

This is my first time at Monthly Mingle and I am so excited as Deeba and Meeta are 2 of my favs from the Blog world. I look forward to their posts every single day. Feel so proud to be participating in an event hosted by them.
