Growing up in upstate New York, it was a tradition every fall to go to the apple orchards and pick a basket of fresh juicy apples. Now that I live in Arizona, our fall season is not exactly the same, but I still make an effort each Autumn to get to my local farmers market and grab a bag of fresh apples from Northern Arizona. Juicy and sweet, apples are a great source of fiber, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B6, and can be used in everything from drinks, salads, entreés, and dessert. Some of my favorite recipes with apples include hot apple cider, apple fritters, apple pie, and this delicious Cinnamon Apple Cobbler.
Cinnamon Apple Cobbler
Every time I make this Cinnamon Apple Cobbler, it reminds me of my Babci (Polish for Grandmother) who used to whip up delicious homemade peach, raspberry, and apple cobblers with just a few ingredients already found in her kitchen. In the time it would take us to sit down for dinner, she would have a cobbler mixed up and in the oven baking! This cobbler is a scrumptious dessert with apples and a healthy touch of cinnamon, baked in fluffy cake-like batter, but you can also use the batter with any kind of fresh fruit. Easy to make, it takes only 40 minutes in the oven. Serve the cobbler warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream for a perfect Autumn dessert.
Do you know the difference between apple cobbler and apple crisp? Apple cobbler has a cake-like batter with apples baked into it; apple crisp is baked apples with an oatmeal-flour-butter crunch topping. Both are tasty, it just depends on your dessert mood!
