Apple Cobbler - and what NOT to do
I mixed everything up, threw it in the oven then started writing this post. I realized I omitted a very important ingredient. (Yes, that's what I get for trying to use my memory and being in a hurry!)
For the batter:
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder (this is what I forgot)
pinch of salt
Whisk all ingredients together. The mixture will be thin.
Melt 1/4 cup butter in an 8 inch square pan.
I used a 16 ounce jar of apple pie filling that I canned earlier this year and put it in a bowl. I added 1/2 cup of water to thin it out. For me this eliminated the steps of adding spices and cornstarch. I would use the same 1/2 cup water with store bought apple pie filling also.
|This is before the water thinned it out.|
Spoon the fruit over the batter.
Sprinkle about a teaspoon of cinnamon sugar mix over the fruit.
Bake for 1 hour.
And this is what happens without baking powder:
The baking powder is what makes the crust rise around the fruit. I ended up with a crust on the bottom that is very chewy. The flavor of the cobbler is wonderful though.
