This is a great dish for the holidays or just to treat yourself and family on a cold wintry day. Goes great over ice cream too as an after school snack. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as me and my own family do.
Best Caramel Apple Cobbler is a sweet taste of fall baked into a dessert. This recipe is comfort food at it’s best. Tart apples, sweet caramel, and warm cinnamon combined with a buttery crust is the quintessential recipe to make during the fall months.
This dessert tastes like an apple pie but much simpler to make especially if you’re not an expert pie crust maker.
The Best Apples for Baking
I used Honeycrisp apples for this recipe. They are one of the top recommended apples for baking. Other apples that are good to use in baked recipes are Granny Smith, Gala, and Mutsu (Crispin).
First of all, for Best Caramel Apple Cobbler results try using two different varieties of apples for optimum flavor and a more complex tasting cobbler, cake, or pie!
As well, cut your apples into varying sizes so that some pieces cook down into the cake while the larger pieces provide a nice, bright apple flavor.
Best Caramel Apple Cobbler Tips
- You can substitute all-purpose flour for the self-rising flour in this recipe. That substitution is 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Obviously, adjust according to the recipe amounts.
- I’m not a fan of nutmeg if you aren’t either you may omit it in this recipe.
- If you haven’t baked one of my other highly popular cobblers, you may not be familiar with the hot water trick. You may even think it doesn’t work and you’ve completely ruined the dessert. Have faith. It will work. Now, I know these cobblers have a lot of sugar, but the brown sugar and hot water is what creates the caramel sauce. I don’t recommend reducing the amount of sugar. It’s a dessert after all. Enjoy it and do extra cardio to make up for it.
- I recommend fresh apples. I have not tested the recipe with apple pie filling.
