Large apple cobbler

Canela Bourbon Apple Cobbler

This bourbon apple cobbler recipe specifically calls for Ceylon cinnamon, also known as Mexican cinnamon or "canela." (Canela is Spanish for cinnamon.)

The subtle Ceylon cinnamon compliments and augments the flavor of the apples and the bourbon.

You could also swap the apples for stone fruits or berries!

For some added flavor and pyrotechnics, try precooking the apple mixture in a skillet and flambé the apples with bourbon.

Watch your eyebrows though!

Yield: 10-12 servings

Canela Bourbon Apple Cobbler Recipe

Ingredients
  • FOR THE TOPPING :
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon Cinnamon
  • pinch Kosher salt
  • FOR THE FILLING :
  • 12-14 cups tart apples, sliced in 1/4 inch crescents (roughly one dozen granny smith apples)
  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons Ceylon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 fluid ounce bourbon whiskey
  • pinch Kosher salt
  • {{ buttonText }}
Preparation Instructions

For the topping:

Set the butter out for about 10 minutes to soften, just a little bit.

Combine dry topping ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stir until evenly distributed.

Add the stick of butter and mix it in with the filling using a dough blender, or your fingers.

The pieces of butter should be roughly the size of a pea.

For the filling:

Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir.

Let the filling sit for 5 minutes, stir again, then add it to a 13" x 9" x 2" pan.

Cook in the oven at 425º for 15-20 minutes. The crust should be browned nicely and the filling a' bubblin'.

Yield: 10-12 servings
Helpful Hints

For a more viscous filling, use 2 heaping tablespoons of cornstarch to this bourbon apple cider recipe. For a thinner filling, pictured, use 1 tablespoon or less.

I think I'd like to try & rate your recipe -- as soon as you finish writing it.
How much butter?
(There is none indicated in ingredients)
When and how do you suggest putting on the topping?
(Spoonfuls, spread with a spatula, or just pour it?)

I suspect it's very tasty, but you do need to complete the instructions.
