This Skillet Apple Cinnamon Cornbread Cobbler is a fun twist on a classic cobbler! Who says cobblers are only for summertime?! My version is made with tender apples, crispy-topped yet gooey-middled cornbread topping, and lots of cinnamon and sugar!
November has to be one of my favorite months. I love the building anticipation for Christmas, I love the chillier weather, I love comforting, stick-to-your-ribs food, and of course, Thanksgiving! Who doesn’t love a holiday dedicated to a table filled with a bounty of food?
One food I really love during this time is pie, not surprisingly. While pumpkin is the classic, apple happens to be my favorite… yet, each year I wonder if I should jazz it up somehow. Apple is quite the humble pie: you could add a crumb topping, a lattice top, or a double-crust, but there’s not much imagination there.
But then I realized cobblers are an awesome, inventive way to switch up a classic apple pie. While cobblers normally have a biscuit-like topping, this Skillet Apple Cinnamon Cornbread Cobbler has a cornbread topping! You heard that right: cornbread isn’t just for stuffing or a vehicle for chili anymore!
What I love about this unique twist is that the cornbread adds a wonderful texture to this skillet cobbler and is a fun departure from a standard biscuit topping. It adds that incredible corn flavor sweetened up just a touch with brown sugar and melted butter. And of course, when you use Krusteaz Honey Cornbread Mix, you know you’re going to get the best quality cornbread already prepared for you. It makes creating this cobbler a cinch, and I don’t know about you, but I can definitely use a shortcut during the bustling holiday season!
So get out your cast iron skillet, crank up the oven, and be prepared for a hearty, utterly delicious cornbread cobbler this Thanksgiving!
