Apple Cobbler Recipe

January 15th, 2015

We love apple pies. Who doesn’t? And with a box of apples that a trusted brand gave last Christmas, it was a must that I make apple pie.

I made Apple Cobbler.

I found a simple and easy to make recipe online but I tweaked a bit for the second time I baked the Apple Cobbler.


  • 4 apples (peeled and sliced) I used 3 apples. 
  • 3/4 cup sugar I used 1/3 cup
  • cinnamon I used a few pinches of cinnamon and nutmeg. 
  • 1/2 cup pancake mix I used 3/4 cup pancake mix
  • 3/4 cup milk I used 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbsps butter (cold, in pieces)

NOTE: The words in bold and italics are the tweaks I made. I followed the first recipe and it was very sweet , soft and the pancake mix dough was nowhere to be found and there was just too much of the apples.

For the second time, I reduced the number of apples, added more pancake mix and reduced the amount of milk and sugar. The family loved the second version.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.
  2. Wash the apples thoroughly even if you have to peel these. Slice thinly. Place the apple slices into a glass baking dish and sprinkle with sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix together.
  3. Mix the pancake mix and milk together in a separate bowl. Mix well to avoid lumps. Pour over the apples and dot with butter.
  4. Place into the oven and bake for 1 hour or until the top is golden brown

You can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top to make this an Apple Cobbler ala Mode.

NOTE: The eldest daughter said maybe next time, I ought to add a little salt or use salted butter instead.
