4-Applesauce Cobbler Cake
This is really more cake than cobbler but it is just too good and easy to leave out. Makes 6 servings
6 tbs. unsalted butter, softened
1/ 3 cup light brown sugar
1/ 2 cup applesauce
1 tbs. light corn syrup
1/ 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups all purpose flour
1/ 4 cup granulated sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/ 3 cup vegetable shortening
1/ 2 cup whole milk
Preheat the oven to 400 °. Spray a 9″ cake pan with non stick cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, add the butter and brown sugar. Beat with a mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes or until the butter and brown sugar are fluffy. Turn the mixer off. Stir in the applesauce, light corn syrup and cinnamon. This makes the topping for the cake. Set aside until the cake is prepared.
In a separate mixing bowl, add the all purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir until well combined. Add the vegetable shortening to the dry ingredients. Using your fingers, work the vegetable shortening into the dry ingredients until you have coarse crumbles. You should still be able to see tiny pieces of the vegetable shortening. Add the egg and milk. Stir only until well combined. Do not over work the batter. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls into the prepared cake pan.
Spoon the applesauce topping over the dough. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the cake begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove the pan from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before serving. Use two forks and break the cobbler into wedges. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired.
