Hey y’all!  Serene from House of Yumm back with you to share this slightly amazing Snickerdoodle Cobbler.  This dessert is so easy to make, and kind of magical.  Not to mention it is perfect for Fall baking!

This is basically a cinnamon cake, but we’re going to layer things up with some melted butter, the cake batter, and then pour hot water over the whole thing.  I know it sounds weird.  But just trust me on this! You will end up with a moist cinnamon cake, that is hiding an indulgent caramel sauce underneath!

Magical right??  This cake did not last long in my house!  The best is that caramel sauce that is hiding underneath.  Make sure you spoon some out and drizzle it all over the cake.  And of course the ice cream too.  Because of course, just like with any cobbler, it isn’t complete until you top it off with some vanilla ice cream.  The combination of warm gooey snickerdoodle cobbler with the cold ice cream is definitely something you need to experience this Fall season!

  1. It’s tasty, but the proportions seem off somehow. The cobbler part is thinner than it looks in your picture — about half as thick — and there seems to be a lot of sauce, which is very thin. The batter was very thick, too; more a “spread” than a “pour”.

  2. This recipe is a good idea but the proportions are way off. The batter is VERY thick, needs a bit more milk. And there is WAY too much hot water poured on top. Seemed wrong when I was doing it and I should have listened to my gut. When it was done cooking there was a solid inch of thin, watery “caramel” sauce under a half inch of dense cake.

    Halve the water, add a bit more milk to the batter and you have a winner.

  3. Followed the recipe to the t, with one exception; I shifted the dry ingredients before adding milk and vanilla. I beat the mixture until just combined and that seemed to do the trick for a little looser batter. Cake came out moist and the caramel was spot on delicious!

  4. This was AMAZING. A number of commenters said the proportions seemed off, and it did seem like there was hardly any batter and a ton of water, but I stuck it out and it turned out PERFECTLY. Sadly we did not have ice cream in the house but poured some half and half over it…oh my. Will be replicating this again tonight!

  5. I cut the water in half and did 2/3 cup of milk instead of 1/2. This ultimately turned out to be very tasty. The cobbler itself doesn’t have a very strong cinnamon flavor, but I like it that way. All in all, a big hit with the family.

  6. So delicious! I was nervous after reading the reviews that said it is runny, but I followed the recipe exactly & the sauce at the bottom was thick, rich & a perfect buttery consistency. I did let it cool about 15-20 minutes (while we ate dinner) before serving. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  7. HI- I am baking this right now and even though the toothpick inserted in the middle came out dry, it looks like its sloshing around just under the surface – i’m not sure if I should let it bake more, or if it’s done? It smells great and looks like the picture but I don’t know how it’s going to come out……… stay tuned!
