Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversations about everything from handmade goodness to gluten-free goodies. Today, we are chatting about an easy, gluten-free dessert that the whole family will enjoy.
Years ago (and I do mean years ago), the company for which the hubby worked put together a cookbook from recipes the employees submitted. At the time, I had not been diagnosed with Celiac or Type 1 Diabetes, so I had no dietary restrictions–obviously, because I baked lots of desserts using lots of sugar and butter *wink* These days, I watch the amount of sugar and fat I consume–but sometimes, a deliciously sweet and comforting “cobbler” is good for the soul.
Now, if you have been reading my gluten-free posts, you know I do not cook complicated dishes. To be honest, I barely cook at all (thankfully, the hubby loves to grill on his Big Green Egg *wink*). However, the chilly temps and snow got me to craving an apple cobbler, and I thought about that recipe I had submitted years ago–“Even A Blonde Can Make This Cake”–So, I went on a mission to make this old favorite gluten-free.
WARNING–if you are watching your sugar and fat intake, do not make this cobbler|dump cake because it has lots of both *wink*
- Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix
- Lucky Leaf Lite Apple Pie Filling *No Sugar Added* (Lucky Leaf has a new look since I purchased my pie filling. Click here for more information.)
- 2 Sticks of Organic Butter (I used salted, but unsalted would also work.)
- Melt one stick of butter in a microwave-safe container in the microwave–until melted. I usually do this process 30 seconds at a time. Stirring well before putting it back into the microwave. I have no idea how to reduce the percentage on my microwave–like melt on 50% power for 15 seconds…Nope, I have no clue how to do that…but I do know how to wing it until the butter is liquid *wink*
- Spray a 9″ x 12″ glass baking dish with GF cooking spray or use butter. Personally, I do a combination of both because one can never use too much butter when cooking a cobbler. (I used a Pyrex baking dish because Pyrex rules bakeware, and I have never cooked this particular dessert in a metal pan.)
- Now, pour the melted butter in the baking dish being careful not to make a mess. No one likes to clean up messes.
- Add the pie filling and gently mix it with the melted butter. Gently stir.
- Pour the dry cake mix on top of the butter/pie filling mixture. DO NOT STIR! DO NOT MIX IT IN!
- Melt the second stick of butter just like you did the first stick.
- Pour the melted butter on top of the dry cake mix making sure to evenly distribute the butter. This will not completely cover the dry mix. It just adds more buttery goodness and a bit of a crisp to the top of the cobbler|dump cake.
- Bake in a pre-heated 350° oven for about 35 minutes or until golden brown on top.
- Remove from oven, and let it sit a spell before serving it. (If you want even more sugary goodness, serve it with a scoop of GF vanilla ice cream.)
- Sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and a bowl of easy, peasy GF apple cobbler.
Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we chatted about an easy, gluten-free apple cobbler. This 3-ingredient dump cake may not be the traditional cobbler, but the taste is divinely addictive and the texture is deliciously moist *big smile*
