Foraged Apples and an Apple Cobbler Recipe

Yesterday, while I was at work, I spotted a crabapple tree in the back of the work property.  I had not noticed it before, so after the meeting, I went to investigate.  There was a tree that was loaded with crabapples that were falling to the ground and rotting.  I love to make crabapple jelly and so, I set out to get permission to take some.  Well, I went and asked and found out that there is an additional apple tree on the property that was full of green apples that no one wanted!  So, I went to work.  First, I picked about a bag of crabapples off the crabapple tree and then went around to look at the green apple tree.  It was loaded!  I had to pick through some, since we have had extensive hail damage in our area.  But I was able to pick so many apples!  I was so excited for this.  I love to make apple pies, jams, jellies and preserves.  I brought my bags home and today I began the process of dealing with the apples.  I have a great little gadget that cuts, skins, and slices the apples up.  This makes the process so much easier.  So, I cut up some of the apples.  I wanted a quick, easy recipe for tonight so this is what I came up with:

Apple Cobbler

Apples 6


Apples-  about 8-9 smaller apples, I had tart, green ones

3/4 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of nutmeg

1 1/2 cups of flour

1/2 cup of rolled oats

2 cups of sugar (additional)

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons of baking powder

3/4 teaspoon of salt

2/3 cup of melted butter or margarine


  1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Core, peel, and slice apples (this gadget makes it soo easy)

Apples 43.  Put the sliced apples in a bowl.  Coat the apples with the first three ingredients: sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Apples 74.  In another bowl, combine the flour, oats, eggs, sugar (additional), baking powder, and salt.  Mix until you cannot see the flour or sugar.

5.  Spread the sugar/ flour mixture over the apples.

6.  Melt the butter/ margarine and put over the top.

Apples 97.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.  The apples will be cooked and the top will be brown.

Apples 10

This turned out so yummy and would be great with ice cream but, I didn’t have any!!

Now, I will be moving on to my next apple adventure.  What would you make with a bunch of free apples and crabapples?   I would love to hear!

Happy Baking!
