Easiest Apple Pie Cobbler 

If you’re having guests over for dinner or want a easy dessert to enjoy on your back porch by the fire pit, here is the perfect sweet treat. This literally takes 15 minutes to put together and if you have a friend to peel the apples…..it will only take 10. 

Here’s My Notes 

1)After making this twice, I think that you can drizzle an additional 1/4 cup of butter to the top; It just depends on your liking.

2)The pecans are optional, as always.

3)I baked mine in a 8-inch cast iron skillet, but you can also use a 9-inch pie plate.

4)Topthis cobbler off with a few scoops of vanilla ice-cream OR butter pecan…and you have a Fall sundae. 

5)I love green apples…. Golden Delicious & Granny Smith. They are my favorite to eat and bake with. But use your favorite apple.

Yields: about 8 servings


6 large apples, peeled & and sliced 

2 Tablespoons cornstarch 

1 teaspoon cinnamon 

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup sugar

1 (15.25 oz.) box yellow cake mix, I use Duncan Hines

1 cup – 1 1/2 cups butter, melted 

1 cup chopped pecans 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a 8-inch cast iron skillet with non-stick cooking spray. 

In a large bowl combine apples, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, and sugars. Pour evenly into the bottom of the cast iron skillet.

Sprinkle cake mix over the top and evenly drizzle with melted butter. Top with pecans.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the top is evenly browned.
