Cornbread Apple Cobbler

Brown sugar dusted apples, cornbread, and cinnamon ice cream paint a picture of fall; all that’s missing is the bluegrass band on a stage framed with crimson leaves.

My skillet cornbread apple cobbler is made much like traditional cobbler, but I used big chunks of sweet cornbread instead of the typical crumb topping!  How can you go wrong with cornbread?  Answer: You can’t!

This recipe has so much possibility for experimentation – topping with caramel, adding a little jalapeño and cheddar to the cornbread, or mixing in some cranberries or nuts.  I can’t wait to hear how you personalize this skillet cornbread apple cobbler and what you think of it!

I baked the cornbread apple cobbler in a small skillet.  You could also bake it in an 8″ square baking pan.

    You had me at cinnamon ice cream. This looks like a great reason to throw a fall party.

    Have you ever tried this by baking the cornbread, instead of pre-baked?
