Apple Pecan Cobbler

If I told you that  I had 25 pounds of apples would you believe me?  Of course you would.  If you have been reading this blog long enough, you know that I have a love affair with seizing opportunities to  purchase fresh seasonal bounty in bulk.  My problem is always after that peak experience of buying, and my romantic notions of the possibilities, not to mention a few eye rolls from my husband, is the reality that I have 25 pounds of apples.

With my apples, and new fire red apple peeler in hand, I managed to preserve several quarts of homemade apple sauce and apple butter, and lastly apple pecan cobbler.


This is only an illusion my friends.  The first piece was done politely, the rest I ate handily right out of the pan. 


Apple Pecan Cobbler
Serves 8
Recipe from Trickschef.com


Ingredients:
4 cups thinly sliced apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).  

2.  Generously grease a 2-quart baking dish.

3.  Arrange apple slices in an even layer in the baking dish.  In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, and 1/2 cup pecans.  Sprinkle mixture over apples.

4.  In a medium bowl, mix together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.  In separate bowl whisk together egg, evaporated milk, and melted butter.  Pour milk mixture into flour mixture all at once, and stir until smooth.  Pour mixture over apples, and sprinkle top with 1/4 cup pecans.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 55 minutes.

Enjoy!

I believe you..I too love apples. Used to eat a few apples every sing day for at least 3 years. I just love them. The cobbler looks delicious.

Rosemary said...

I've often added walnuts to a cobbler. Just know I'd love this. We, too, eat apples, nearly daily. Unfortunateley an early frost last year hurt our own trees :( Have had to buy them!

Karen Harris said...

I am an opportunist too. Not only with food but with mid-century furniture as well. I don't know which one earns me more eye rolls from my husband, but thank goodness he has a good sense of humor. He would never mind a truck load of apples if he got to eat some of this cobbler.

Chris said...

I would use some to make them baked wrapped in pie dough with butter and cinnamon, yum!

This looks so good! I am not a huge fan of apples 'raw' but I love them cooked. Have a great weekend.

Amy said...

hehe....I'm feeling better that I'm not the only one who loves to buy in bulk when the fruit is in season! They are simply the best, aren't they? :)

Applesauce and butter sound yummy. But this Apple Pecan Cobbler is awesome, so perfect for this cold weather. And I think eating straight out of the pan is definitely the way to go!

Have a wonderful weekend.

This sounds SO delicious. I could go for some right now (for breakfast!)

Karen said...

A cup of coffee, a piece of this cobbler, and I'd be all set.

Daniela Grimburg said...

A wonderful treat together wit a cup of coffee :)

Oh yes, a big ole piece would be great right now-enjoy:@)

Michelle said...

That looks so good! I love apple desserts and sadly, I am the only one in my family that does. How did that happen?!

Southerncook said...

I love apples any way they are presented to me and this looks amazing. Cannot wait to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

ooooooh 25 lbs of apples!!!!!

cquek said...

Oh yum, this looks delicious.

grace said...

it seems like more often than not, apple desserts are runny and venture all over the plate, so i really like the sturdiness of this! have fun with those apples, velva. :)

Barbara said...

I'm smiling, because our home in Michigan years ago had an orchard of apple trees! So way back then, I learned to make applesauce and numerous apple dishes.
This looks yummy, Velva. There something about evaporated milk that makes a recipe so much richer, isn't there?

Joanne said...

Apple baked goods are the best and you've definitely put those 25 lb to good use! What a great cobbler!

teresa said...

this is such a perfect dessert! i love the addition of pecans!

tasteofbeirut said...

You and I are in the same boat, except my apples are harvested from the family's orchard. Thanks to you I know what I am making next with these beauties, much easier than apple pie and just as yummy.

Pierce said...

Apples and pecans go very well together. And of course, I never doubted you had 25 pounds of apples :-)

Rambling Tart said...

Oh you make me laugh. :-) I get into the same fix all the time! I come home with bushels of this and that and then think, "Oh crap! There are only two of us!" :-) This looks delicious. :-)

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

What a delicious combination with the pecans! My husband and I would be in serious trouble with that in the house but I'm saving the recipe for a family gathering.

Ali @ JamHands.net said...

Thank you so much for linking this recipe up at Recipe Sharing Monday! The new link party is up and I'd love to see you back. Have a great week. :

Looks fantastic and delicious. Only thing I might add is a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream :)

Claudia said...

You have 25 pounds of apples in January! I live in the wrong state. I would make do just fine with the entire pan as my dish and happily chomp throughout the day. Feeling virtuous. Because it has fruit in it.

Kitchen Belleicious said...

I HAVE NEVER! I have never in my life had a apple pecan cobbler and I am scratching my head as to why that is. It sounds and looks amazing and perfect! Just perfect! Great job

Mimi said...

Looks delicious. Great recipes seem to taste best eaten straight out of the pan.

25 pounds of apples made me laugh! This recipe looks delicious!

Martha said...

I always have tons of apples at this time of year when a nice neighbor comes down from NY for the winter and brings along bags and bags of fresh picked apples. Your recipe looks delicious!

Katie@Cozydelicious said...

This cobbler looks awesome! I have a ton of apples too. This will be a perfect way to use them.

Gloria said...

Look really delicious, I love apples!!

Lawyer Loves Lunch said...

I love when a dessert is good enough to eat straight from the pan! And with the apples, it's almost like breakfast food, right? :)

Jeane M. said...

That really looked inviting! Gotta have some cobbler before dinner strikes. :D Got my eye on your next posts.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

You know you have struck gold in baking when you don't even need a plate...yummy!
