Apple Fritter Cobbler

By October 1, 2023 No Comments


A true celebration of fall – the Apple Fritter Cobbler. This dessert, with its tender, spiced apples, fluffy biscuit topping, and sweet glaze, is a warm and comforting treat that’s perfect for those crisp autumn evenings.

This  Apple Fritter Cobbler is a delightful fusion of two classic desserts – the apple fritter and the fruit cobbler.

This Apple Fritter Cobbler reminds me of my grandmother’s apple cobbler. She had a Granny Smith apple tree in her yard and from that tree she made delicious apple jelly, fried apple pies and yummy fruit cobblers. Lots of happy memories from one tree. 

Apple Fritter Cobbler makes a delicious coffee cake kind of dish too. I’m thinking of Christmas morning brunch!! Yum! 

Of course, It’s delicious on its own, but even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Now, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to the recipe. This Apple Fritter Cobbler recipe is simple, yet it yields a dessert that’s sure to impress your family and friends. So, preheat your oven, gather your ingredients, and let’s get baking!

How to Make Apple Fritter Cobbler (Be sure to see the complete printable recipe below.)

 In a large skillet, combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch, and water.  Stir until the apples are evenly coated.

Over medium heat, bring the apple mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Note: the apples should be just fork tender but still firm. They will be cooking more in the oven so you don’t want to overcook them.

Add vanilla. Pour the apple mixture into the prepared baking dish. Note: You can use an iron skillet for a one dish dessert. Just add the fritter topping and bake. 

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk just until a dough.

Drop spoonfuls of the dough evenly over the apple mixture.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden and the apples are bubbling.

 While the cobbler is baking, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.

Once the cobbler is done, remove it from the oven and immediately drizzle the glaze over the top.

Allow the cobbler to cool for a few minutes before serving. It’s delicious on its own, but even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream!

And there you have it, my friends – a beautiful and delicious Apple Fritter Cobbler! This dessert is a true celebration of the flavors of fall, and I hope it brings warmth and joy to your family and friends!

Enjoy!

Description

 A true celebration of fall – the Apple Fritter Cobbler. This dessert, with its tender, spiced apples, fluffy biscuit topping, and sweet glaze, is a warm and comforting treat that’s perfect for those crisp autumn evenings.


Ingredients

For the Apple Filling:

  6 cups of peeled and sliced apples-about 6   apples (Granny Smith or  Honeycrisp is my   favorite for baking.)

  1 ½  cups granulated sugar

  1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  3  tablespoon cornstarch

  1/4 cup water

 2 tablespoons of butter 

 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 

For the Biscuit Topping:

  2 cups all-purpose flour

  1/4 cup granulated sugar

  1 tablespoon baking powder

  1/2 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 

  1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

  3/4 cup whole milk

For the Glaze:

  1 ¼  cups powdered sugar

  2-3 tablespoons milk

  ½  teaspoon vanilla extract


Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish. Note: If your oven tends to run high, bake on 350 or if the topping is browning too quickly, reduce the oven temperature to 350. 
  1. In a med size bowl, sift together the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cornstarch. Add the apples and coat them well with the sugar mixture. In a large skillet, add the apple mixture and 1/4 cup of water.  Over medium heat, bring the apple mixture to a hard boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes or until the apples are tender but still firm. Add the butter and vanilla. Pour the apple mixture into the prepared baking dish. Note: You can use an iron skillet for a one dish dessert. Just add the fritter topping and bake. 
  1. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk just until a dough forms. Be careful not to over stir.
  1. Drop spoonfuls of the dough evenly over the apple mixture.
  1. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden and the apples are bubbling.
  1. While the cobbler is baking, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  1. Once the cobbler is done, remove it from the oven and immediately drizzle the glaze over the top.
  1. Allow the cobbler to cool for a few minutes before serving. It’s delicious on its own, but even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Notes

Do ahead/Freeze Tips: The apple filling can be made up several days ahead and stored in the refrigerator. If making ahead I would suggest adding a couple of tablespoons of fresh lemon to to the apples to keep them from turning brown. The cooked cobbler can be frozen as well. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and heat in the microwave to serve.
