Old fashioned apple cobbler

It’s always a gorgeous day for apple cobbler!

There are benefits to living near stunning apple orchards, from taking the day to go apple picking to enjoying apple festivals. It’s one of the highlights of our end of summer and beginning of fall fun.

What can I do with a lot of apples?

When I used to live in England and then in Ireland, I would enjoy foraging in the hedgerows for berries, hazelnuts, crab apples, and damson plums. After a mini harvest, I would make a pantry full of jams, jellies, and syrups, and then bake plenty of desserts to share.

All of these kitchen creations were made in my set of favorite mixing bowls from Mason Cash. After moving back to the states, I knew I needed Mason Cash in my life again and quick. I love the design, the quality, and aesthetics, so classic and extremely functional and rooted in English heritage.

Mason Cash mixing bowl with apples

I’m a huge fan of Mason Cash stoneware mixing bowls, and I adore this batter bowl in the original cane design. The Mason Cash original cane design has been gracing their bowls since 1901, from Downton Abbey days to The Great British Bakeoff, Mason Cash is iconic! Find out more about Mason Cash here.

For the Filling

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 6 cooking apples (about 3 pounds), cored, peeled, and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt

For the Cobbler

  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, frozen and grated
  • 1/4 - 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar for topping


  1. Freeze a 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat the oven to 350°F.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt the butter along with the sugar and lemon juice.
  4. Toss the apples with the flour then add to the melted butter. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and a pinch of salt, stirring occasionally, cook for about 10 minutes until the apples just begin to soften.
  5. Transfer the apple mixture into a 12-inch skillet.
  6. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon.
  7. Grate the frozen butter and add to the flour mixture along with the milk, lightly mix until well combined but don't overwork it.
  8. Using a large spoon, divide the dough into golf ball-sized portions and arrange on top of the apples with a bit of space left in between to allow for the biscuits to rise and spread.
  9. Sprinkle the biscuits with a spoonful more of sugar and bake the apple cobbler in the preheated 350°F oven for 30 - 45 minutes or until the biscuits have started to lightly brown.
  10. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.
