My sister gave me this recipe. I believe she got it from a WW leader. Her note to me was that she substituted Splenda for the sugar and increased it to 1 cup. She didn't feel the 1/3 cup was sweet enough. For the apples she recommended Jonagold or any other baking apple. Her note also indicated 1 pt. per serving.
- 3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (approx. 4 cups)
- 1⁄4 cup applesauce
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat milk
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Arrange the apples in the baking dish; bake until tender, about 15 minutes. (Alternatively, arrange the apples in a microwavable dish and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until the apples are tender). Let the apples cool, then stir in applesauce.
- To assmeble the cobblers, reduce the oven temp to 350°F Spray six 4 oz. custard cups or ramekins with non-stick spray.
- Combine the milk, flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and whisk until smooth.
- Divide the apple mixture into the cups and top each with the batter. Bake cobblers until golden brown, about 20 minutes. If making a single, large cobbler, simply pour the batter over the apples and bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
This was a nice dessert, more of a sponge topping than a cobbler really but tasty. It was even better reheated the next day and DH thoroughly enjoyed it too. I will try it with other fruits in season too. Thank you for posting the recipe.
This was a great guilt-free use of some tangy apples from the farmer's market that DH decided he couldn't eat raw! I realized too late that I was out of applesauce, so I dotted the cooked apples with about 1 teaspoon of Smart Balance and sprinkled them with 1/2 teaspoon sugar and some cinnamon then stirred it all up. Worked great, and I was pleased to have that buttery flavor that I love in an apple pie. This comes out more like an apple cake than a cobbler (no crispy or biscuity crust here) but the spice mix is nice and it is quite tasty with a small dollop of vanilla frozen yogurt. Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices 2008.
This met with mixed reviews at my house. I made it as written. The apple filling was very good. I used Granny Smiths and they were tender with just the right amount of sweetness. The cobbler part browned perfectly on the outside but had a sort of gummy texture that my family did not care for. I have never had much luck with calorie-reduced desserts, but I do appreciate the opportunity to give this a try. Thanks.
