This recipe is so easy to throw together and reminds me of a dessert my grandmother would make when all the family came to visit. Created for RSC#10.
- 2 medium apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
- 1 lemon, juice and zest of, separate
- 3⁄4 cup pecan pieces
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder (eliminate if using self-rising flour)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Place apple slices in a bowl and coat with juice from one lemon. Set aside.
- Place pecan pieces in a pie tin or similar oven-proof container, and place in the oven for about 7 minutes, or until toasted. (Watch carefully to prevent burning.) Let cool.
- Meanwhile place butter in a large casserole or 11x13 baking pan. Place casserole in oven until butter melts, and remove.
- Spread apple slices in single layer across the melted butter in the bottom of the casserole. Sprinkle the pecan pieces, lemon zest, cinnamon, and brown sugar over the apple slices and drizzle the syrup over all.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder (if not using self-rising flour), sugar, and milk. Slowly pour the mixture over the apple slices and lightly spread the batter to cover the apples.
- Place in the oven and bake for approximately 30 - 40 minutes until brown on the top. Remove to cool.
- Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue to whip until peaks are stiff (but not overly stiff like butter).
- Serve cobbler in bowls topped with a few tablespoons whipped cream.
I doubled the amount of appels and this was absolutely fabulous! The family are not too keen on my experiments in the kitchen, but this was a 'mum, you can make this again...'recipe! Thanks for sharing!
This was good. My husband liked it the most. The cobbler was more spongy than I am used to. I prefer more of biscuity cobbler. Even though my husband liked it, the leftovers did not get eaten very quickly....and that is the ultimate measure of success here.
Wow, we really enjoyed this. I loved the taste of the apples, the spicing was perfect. I used 4 apples, because we like alot of apple. The fruit was amazing with great flavor, tart, sweet and spicy and the cake was light and airy. It was quick to make and had easy to follow instructions. Great use of the contest ingredients. Good luck in the contest, comfort food at its best.
