Se7en Survives on Apple Cobbler…

September 10th, 2011 · 6 Comments

A young scientist needed a can of pineapples for an experiment, so he rang the father person and asked if he could bring them home with the shopping. Well the father person came home with a large can of pie-apples… And so began our go to comfort food this winter. Since then someone has needed to dash the store for a can of pie apples all winter long!!! Apple Cobbler has become our best friend this winter, every couple of days we succomb…

    For the Apples:

  • A can of pie apples – you can actually use any soft fruit and they don’t have to be canned either. Peaches are so good too!!!
  • A cup of brown sugar
  • Half a cup of butter
  • A teaspoon of cinnamon
  • A splash o lemonjuice.
  • For the Batter:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 cups of Milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 a cup of sugar

Let’s Play the Game:

  1. Gently melt the butter in a pan.

  7. Pour them into a greased pie dish.

  9. Add all the batter ingredients into the mixing bowl: the flour, the baking powder, the milk, the sugar and the eggs.

  11. Beat away, you should get a batter just slightly thicker than pancake batter.

  13. Pour the batter over the pie apples.

  15. It is good to leave a few bits of fruit poking through… If you have a bit too much batter for your pie dish just keep the excess back and make a couple of little pancakes… someone will thank you!!!

  17. Pop it into the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius for about half an hour, until a skewer comes out clean.

  19. And there you have your apple cobbler, and if you live with a chef he will want to sprinkle it with a whole lot more cinnamon at this stage…Let him, a chef must do what a chef must do!!!

  21. Serve it plain or with cream or with ice-cream, and it is just delicious. Not to mention perfect for yet another rainy day!!!

Hope you have a fun weekend!!!

    This recipe looks delicious! We have three apple trees and are in the process of picking and preserving….so I’ve been on the look out for new or different apple recipes. This one is unusual…well for me, a Wisconsin girl. I think I might just be a rockstar if I let my kids eat this for breakfast. I bet I could add some whole wheat flour in the batter and then we’d all feel good about it too! Thank you!

    Hi Reba, My kid have told me that it has panicles and fruit and therefore a great breakfast… ummm well minus the sugar and the butter and I am sure you could use a lot less of both but I have “helpers”… so there is no escaping the ingredients!!! Hope you enjoy it!!!
