Apple Cobbler Cake

I was looking for a few more recipes to use up the last of the fresh apples we picked at the orchard in Ellijay last month and my sister stumbled across this recipe! This is really perfect for a potluck - it comes together quickly and easily - three layers which work together to make a tender and tasty yellow cake layer topped with a cobbler-esque topping (brown sugar sweetened apples followed by a streusel top layer).

If I try this again I might opt for a white cake base - just out of personal preference. It's funny - I LOVE the taste of raw yellow cake batter, but I have never been a big fan of the flavor of baked yellow cake. However, white cake? Always a good choice in my book!

I love how this cake is stuffed with tender sweet apples and that perfect crunchy buttery topping. Share this with the ones you love!

Apple Cobbler Cake adapted from Jo Cooks


1 box yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix)
1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs

Apple Mixture
6 apples peeled, cored and sliced
3 tbsp brown sugar packed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Follow instructions on your yellow cake mix - blend cake batter and pour in prepared baking dish.
  3. Next toss apples with the brown sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Spread apples gently over the cake layer.
  4. Next combine all topping ingredients in a bowl and use a pastry cutter to blend butter into mixture, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the top of the apple layer.
  5. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center (of the cake layer) comes out clean.
