These are exceptional bloggers so visit and follow their blogs, you would not be disappointed.
Today’s Guest and the last in this series is no other than Greg from Rufus Guide.

He and Katherine shares great dishes (a lot with Italian twist), amazing spirit concoctions, herb and vegetable growing and some escapades. Dishes shared here have a very homey feel and rustic, this means no fuss and it’s just pure deliciousness. Want to know what I am referring to just follow his blog and be amazed.
We’re so ready for fall we can taste it. Cobblers are one of our favorite desserts, because the ingredients are so simple we almost always have them in the cupboard or freezer. A little bit about us, since Raymud asked, we live in the American South, are married with two dogs and really like cobbler.
- 2 lbs apples, peeled, sliced
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- ⅓ cup water
- 1 cup flour
- ⅓ cup butter
- ¾ cup buttermilk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Peel and core apples. Cut into eighths. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring fruit, cup of sugar, cinnamon, syrup and water to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer. Allow mix to thicken and apples to get fork tender. This should take about 20 minutes.
- Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Cut butter into flour mix, until crumbly.
- Add sugar and buttermilk. Stir to incorporate. The mix will be wet, more of a drop biscuit or almost a cake batter consistency.
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Pour apples into single two-quart casserole dish. Use a spoon to spread batter evenly over top. (It doesn’t have to be perfect.)
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops are golden.
