This Caramel Apple Cobbler is an excellent combination of tasty tart apples covered in cinnamon and smooth homemade caramel, all in a wondrous warm from scratch cobbler!
6 apples peeled and sliced thin (I used a mixture of Gala and Granny Smith)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TBSPs granulated sugar
For Caramel Sauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
For Cobbler Batter
1/2 cup butter melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and remove out a 9 by 13 baking dish.
Blend your apple slices, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 2 TBSPs granulated white sugar in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook the apples, stirring regularly until they are soft, about 10 minutes.
While the apples are cooking down, combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter, 1/4 cup heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir consistently until the mixture begins to boil. Continue stirring for another minute or so until it is smooth, remove from the heat.
Pour the 1/2 cup melted butter into the baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt. Whisk in 1 cup milk and 2 tsp vanilla extract. Pour the mixture over the butter and whisk in gently.
Add 1 cup of the caramel sauce to the apples and stir to blend, reserve the rest for serving (I had about 1/3 cup left). Pour the caramel apple mixture over the batter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream and the reserved caramel sauce.
