Apple and Maple-Walnut Cobbler

  • 4 medium-to-large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick (5 to 6 cups)
  • 8 T. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

In a lightly greased 9-inch square pan, place the apple slices. Set aside.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the buttermilk, flour and the next four ingredients. Beat again until smooth. Spoon the batter (it should be rather stiff) over the apples in the pan using a spatula.

Pour the maple syrup over the batter; sprinkle the nuts over it all. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes, covering the pan with aluminum foil, shiny side up, after the first half-hour of baking. Remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Serve plain or with ice cream or whipped cream.
