Apple Cobbler

  • Author: Greg from Rufus Guide


  • 2 lbs apples, peeled, sliced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  1. 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.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Cut butter into flour mix, until crumbly.
  4. Add sugar and buttermilk. Stir to incorporate. The mix will be wet, more of a drop biscuit or almost a cake batter consistency.
  5. Preheat oven to 400.
  6. Pour apples into single two-quart casserole dish. Use a spoon to spread batter evenly over top. (It doesn’t have to be perfect.)
  7. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops are golden.
