Cinnamon Cobbler Warm and Wonderful

Cobblers like this were always family favorites growing up. Mama made one at least once a week. She loved them because of how budget friendly it was, she always had the ingredients on hand, and they don’t even require an egg!

This Warm Cinnamon Cobbler recipe is one I developed as a twin to Mama’s Chocolate Cobbler.

Can Be Adjusted Easily To Be Allergy Free

My daughter has friends who have several food allergies. Some are allergic to milk, some nuts, and some eggs. I can make chocolate or cinnamon cobbler for them because it has no nuts and I just switch the milk to rice or almond milk (almond milk if there are no nut allergies) and it works out just fine. 

Cinnamon Cobbler: An Amazing Treat

Warm Cinnamon Pudding Cobbler is an amazing fall treat. You know right off that your house is going to smell amazing, right? But can you imagine a moist cinnamon cake layer floating atop a cloud of warm brown sugar and cinnamon pudding?  

This is another show stopper and the fact that it is easy to make, uses simple ingredients,  and since it’s economical cinnamon cobbler is the perfect dessert to make today.

Because, as my Grandmama used to say “We like to have us a little somethin’ sweet.”

This is one to be passed down for generations.

  • Next is the part that trips people up
  • You have to S-L-O-W-L-Y pour hot water over your batter.

The thing is that you don’t want to end up pouring it fast because that will just end up thinning out your batter with the water. What you want in the end is a layer of water floating atop the batter. SO, to accomplish this, I take my hot water and pour it very slowly from a corner of the dish. I kinda let it go down the sides of the dish and then trickle into the pan. I pour from one corner for a bit and then I move to another corner.

  1. I made this last night and it was an instant favorite. I want to try the apple cinnamon cobbler next.
    Can this work using almond flour instead?

    1. That is the great thing about recipes Barbara, you can experiment with whatever you like! Sliced bananas on top of the cobbler (with ice cream, ok, I may have a preference for ice cream 😉 ) sounds wonderful!

  2. Hi Christy….
    I want to make this for a Church potluck, you said you can double it. How much longer will I need to bake it? I thought this would go GREAT with homemade vanilla ice cream!!

    Thanks a bunch…Denise

  3. Excellent recipe, simple and delicious! Easy to make. I don’t use self-rising flour, so I add 2 teaspoons of baking powder instead.

  4. I made this yesterday and it was so good. Thanks for the recipe Christy. I am so looking forward to your next cookbook.
