Gluten Free Apple Cobbler

6 portions

Gluten-free apple cobbler is the best and everyone’s favorite fall dessert every year. Made with delicious fried apples with cinnamon, and a fluffy cake-like topping that is simply irresistible. I highly recommend serving this apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Too sweet? But so worth it!

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, oats (if using), brown sugar, baking powder, salt.

Add butter (cut into cubes) into the flour mixture and gently stir (either with a spoon, pastry cutter or your hands) until you have crumbs. But honestly, mixing everything with hands is the easiest and fastest way in my opinion!

Slowly stir half of the cream until incorporated and add little by little more until you get an almost wet texture.

Gently stir. The dough should not be smooth though.

It is important to add the cream in batches otherwise you may lose the texture and the top will not bake as it should. Set aside.

In a cast-iron skillet add fried apples with cinnamon or any homemade apple filling or a store-bought can.

Pour the flour mixture on top, spread it out evenly with a spatula.

Tip: it is not so important to cover the apples entirely, you can leave few empty spots here and there for the apples to peek through and become bubbly through the crumble.

Bake at 375 F for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crisp.

Take out of the oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes and serve with a scoop or two of your favorite ice cream.

Tips
  • Nutrition - provided here is without the fried apples with the cinnamon recipe.
  • Fried apples with cinnamon - if you are going to make my fried apple recipe for this cobbler, I suggest using Granny Smith apples for this particular recipe because they are the most tart which pairs very well with the sweet cobbler.
  • Do I need to peel apples for pie, crumble, crisp and etc?There are no strict rules on if you need to peel apples for a pie, cobbler, or crumble. It all comes down to personal preference. If sliced not evenly into thicker half-moons, after baking the cobbler yes, some apple slices will have the skin broken down but it is normal. If you don’t like it, or say, serving for children then I’d recommend either removing the skin entirely or skin-on, slicing the frying apples into smaller cubes before cooking. The time in my fried apples with the cinnamon recipe will need to be adjusted for less. Use your best judgment.
  • Should you refrigerate an apple cobbler? If you really need to refrigerate the leftovers, then sure you can, however according to USDA it is technically not required because this dish contains plenty of sugar and is safe to be stored at room temperature. You can keep it at room temperature for up to 2 days.If you can’t consume it within this time then it is better to refrigerate for up to 5-7 days. The Gluten-free apple crumble should be baked and cooled completely before refrigerating to ensure it will remain fresh for longer.
  • Make ahead instructions. It requires a few steps but is easy, I promise!You can make the fried apples and whisk the batter (without the butter) a day or two before. Keep them both separated, sealed, and in an airtight container, refrigerated. When ready to bake, add and press the cold butter cubes into the flour mix and proceed as per the recipe.
