Intro: Three-Ingredient Apple Cobbler
An easy, delicious way to use up those beautiful apples that the Fall season brings, I bring you my three-ingredient apple cobbler recipe.
This Fall season potluck favorite is best served warm in my opinion, but as any mother of three children will tell you - if it's still delicious cold, I call that a win-win! The cobbler itself seems "fancy" to me, and I enjoy eating a spot or two of dry cake mix that browns up while cooking over the top of the apples.
I was able to make this dessert in just over an hour, and that was with taking photos.
On with the recipe ~
Using the cooking instructions on the back of the cake box mix, preheat the oven according to the package directions. I am using a 13x9 sized glass pan and the instructions state to preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
- seven (7) medium apples (I used the Fuji type)
- one package white or yellow cake mix (I used white for this Instructable)
- one stick of unsalted butter
- You can optionally place cinnamon over the top. I am allergic to cinnamon so I don't use it.
Prepare the Apples
Wash the outside of the apples. I do this with running water and I would have taken a photo but my sink was full of dirty dishes at the time.
With a potato peeler (or whatever else you have) peel the skin off the apples. (I don't have a fancy apple peeler.)
Using an apple corer/slicer, core and slice the apples. You can optionally place the apple pieces in a gallon-sized plastic bag with 1/2-cup of lemon-lime soda to prevent browning. It took me about half-an-hour to peel, slice & core all seven (7) apples, so I chose to use this method to keep the apples pretty in the photos.
Combine Ingredients and Bake
Place the cut apples in a greased 13x9 pan.
As evenly as possible, sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top of the apples.
Melt the stick of butter. I do this by melting the butter in a microwavable container for 30-seconds in the microwave.
Slowly pour the melted butter over the top of the cake mix.
Bake the cobbler for at least 35-minutes, until the edges are browned slightly.
I let the cobbler cool for at least ten minutes before serving.
The yellow cake mix will give a more cobbler look to your dish. My dish is very white, due to the white cake mix used.
I also have a Three Ingredient Berry Cobbler recipe here on Instructables. (It's my most viewed Instructable!)
Thanks for reading and enjoy the fanciness without all the work!
