FARM FACTOR: Apple-Date Cobbler Recipe

Posted by Robert Nyerick, Chef  |  October 01, 2012

There’s nothing that says “Autumn is here!!” like the smell of apples baking with cinnamon and nutmeg. Here at the Grove Artisan Kitchen, we add the flare of locally-grown dates for a little surprise flavor.


Apple Date Cobbler

  • 6 cups green apples (peeled/sliced)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg  (fresh grated)
  • 1 vanilla stick, cleaned
  • 6 dates pitted and small diced soaked until tender in 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1-1/2 tablespoon butter


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg

In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients (except butter), gently in a toss-like motion. Pour this mixture into a pie dish, or square baking dish that is lightly buttered or sprayed with non-stick spray. Then place butter on top of filling in the center.

Prepare topping by mixing all topping ingredients in a separate medium bowl. Mix with a spoon until batter is smooth. Drop batter on top of the filling with a spoon, as evenly as possible.

The batter will spread while being cooked.

Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.
