Fried-Apple Cobbler Bars

Yum

Secret Recipe Club (SRC) day has arrived once again!  This time we will be making an exciting treat: Fried-Apple Cobbler Bars!!!!!!!  I will bet that you have never sampled such an unique treat… Well, neither had I!

My fried-apple cobbler bars were inspired by Sara’s peach cobbler coffeecake, which in turn came from her Mom’s cherry coffeecake.  Huh???  As you know, every month SRC members are assigned to prepare a recipe from a different blog.  This month I had the pleasure of being assigned to Cook with Sara, where that nice Midwestern gal, inspired by her Mom’s ministry of hospitality, shares many delightful American recipes.  I hope you pay her a visit soon.

Although I am still feeling under the weather, my commitment to prepare an SRC recipe this month actually turned out to be a pleasure.  Browsing Sara’s blog and finding this treat got me all enthusiastic.  Once again, I had to put my own spin on the recipe in order for it to become mine/ours.   For this reason alone, Sara’s peach cobbler coffeecake became my fried-apple cobbler bars.

Fried Apple Cobbler Bars

You are very welcome to try both my fried-apple cobbler bars and Sara’s peach cobbler coffeecake.  In either case, you will get hooked on both treats. Because our fried-apple cobbler bars are mildly sweet, they can be served either for breakfast or as a dessert.  Wow, how cool  is that?!!!

For now, enjoy these scrumptious, autumn fried-apple cobbler bars.  See ya!

Recipe type: Breakfast/ Dessert
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • For the Bars:
  • 2 (15 oz or 425 g) canned fried apples (original)**
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup (or 1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (6 oz or 170 g) container vanilla or plain yogurt
  • NOTE: Canned Fried Apples are available at local supermarkets in the US. If you wish, make fried apples from scratch using THIS RECIPE (In order to make our fried-apple cobbler bars, please prepare a double batch of the homemade fried apples described on that recipe link).
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven at 350° F (about 177 ° C). Grease both the bottom and sides of a 13 x 9-inch baking pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir well the canned fried apples and cinnamon, and reserve. In a mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar at low speed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating at medium speed just enough to mix in. Beat in vanilla extract. Combine both flour and salt in a medium bowl. Alternate half of the flour-salt mixture and then half of the yogurt, beating each time at low speed until combined. Then, add the remaining flour-salt mixture and the other half of the yogurt, beating each time until combined.
  3. Spread ⅔ of the batter in the prepared baking pan. Top with the fried apple mixture. With a spoon, dollop the remaining batter on top of fried apples. Bake for about 27-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes clean.
  4. Let cool for about 15-20 minutes on a wire rack and slice into 12 rectangles.
  5. To prepare the glaze: Combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk, whisking very well until smooth. Drizzle over the fried-apple cobbler bars when they are still warm. Let glaze set and enjoy.

    Initially I thought it was fried :) then as I read through it was an ingredient. I wish I can find that fried apples in here

      Hi, Raymund! I have just place a link where you can see how to make fried apples from scratch.

    Oh my gosh these are delightful indeed. I love apples this time of year. Actually…. that’s a lie. I love them any time of the year :)

    Do hope you’re feeling better Denise. These look so good, I love how you came up with these. It’s a little like the old game where you whisper in someone’s ear and then it gets passed on and comes out totally different. These both sound wonderful. I love apple desserts, they’re definitely my favorites!

    • Denise Browning 21 October, 2013 at 7:32 am #

      Thanks, Chris, for both stopping by and the get well wishes.

  4. Erin @ Making Memories 21 October, 2013 at 6:47 am #

    Oh YUM! Your bars look scrumptious! I wish I had these right now for breakfast. I’m not sure what canned fried apples are, though. Is this different from apple pie filling?

    • Denise Browning 21 October, 2013 at 7:31 am #

      Hi, Erin! Canned fried apples are available at local supermarkets in the US. Canned fried apples contain more apples and much less sauce than the canned apple pie filling. I have just placed a link for making fried apples from scratch. Thanks a lot for stopping by! Wishing you a great week.

    Wow!!! We had not heard of canned fried apples either, but thanks for the explanation. This looks like an amazing treat!

    You really have magic hands… Wow, I wish I lived with you (in the good sense of the word)… Haha! Do you have any kids? If you do, they must love what you do! rsrsrs

    One of the many reasons why I love fall is because it’s apple season.
    Your recipe looks so decadent and delicious, thank heavens it’s apple season, want to prepare it on the spot :)
