  1. Mix one teaspoon of cinnamon into the apples. Mix the second teaspoon of cinnamon together with 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Set aside.

  2. Combine cassava flour, baking powder, salt, remaining brown sugar, and egg in a bowl. Spread batter over the apple slices.

  3. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Melt butter and drizzle evenly over the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes in a 350 oven.

Recipe Notes

The number of apples you use in this apple cobbler will depend upon their size. Just be sure that your pan is filled to the brim with apples. You can see in the photo above that prior to cooking, the apples and topping are heaped above the top of the pan. As the apples cook, they will soften and sink, as you can see in the photo at the top of the page.

To make this a gluten free apple cobbler, use cassava flour instead of all-purpose flour.
