I won’t lie. I scrunched up my nose when Matt picked out this recipe. I honestly don't care much for cobblers, and I had my doubts on this one. But, we were making this for Matt. I was out to please his palate, not mine. Of course, before I could blog about this, I had to at least try it… and the results were amazing! Totally exceeded my expectations. There was a perfect balance of crisp, cake, and apple in every bite. Beautifully sweetened with a subtle hint of tartness. Simply scrumptious! I cannot rave enough about this cobbler. I will definitely make this again, and I think it may have even earned a spot on our Thanksgiving menu because it was definitely holiday worthy. Excellent choice by my hubby!
6 cups sliced peeled Granny Smith apples (about 3 apples)
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8-in square baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange apple slices in the prepared dish. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples.
In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and remaining sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg and egg substitute; mix well. In a small bowl combine flour and baking powder; add to egg mixture and beat until blended. Drop by spoonfuls over apples and spread evenly.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. (We baked the last 5 minutes at 400° to help crisp the top.) Cool slightly and serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
