Apricot Cobbler with 4 Ingredients

Have you ever heard about cobbler? I would say this is the American solution for a quick and easy dessert. Slice up some fruits and cover with crumbs, that is basically what cobbler is. You don’t have to go through the hassle of making a dough, nope, just toss some fruits together with crumbs and you are done. Yes, you still have to prepare the fruit and you still have to make the crumbs and bake the entire thing, but I mean, this is really easy and simple compared to say a layered cake.

I am a huge fan of anything fruity. Cobbler is therefore perfect for me. The ratio of fruits vs. dough/crumbs is exactly what I want in any dessert. Cobbler, especially in the south of the US, is made with melted butter and milk. It seems to be more common to combine the fruits with these ingredients. However, I decided to introduce you to the absolute basic version here. Yes, you can pimp it further, but I wanted to introduce the plain version first. Traditionally, cobbler is made with peaches, however, since I had apricots at hand, I went for this version. Basically any stone fruit will work and also berries. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Apricot Cobbler with 4 Ingredients

Serves: One small casserole
Prep Time: 15min Cooking Time: 35min Total Time: 50min

Apricot cobbler with 4 ingredients basically means slicing up apricots, covering them with crumbs and bake it.


  • About 600 grams of apricots (or other stone fruit or berries)
  • 30 grams of regular sugar
  • 70 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 50 grams of butter
  • 50 grams of regular sugar
  • Optional: coarse sugar or brown sugar for dusting



Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Wash, stone, and slice your apricots, other stonefruit or prepare the berries. Toss into a small casserole pan (I used a brownie pan with 20x20cm). Create crumbs out of the flour, butter and regular sugar. Cover the apricots with them, just toss them on, this does not need to look perfect. Bake for about 30 minutes, then take out and sprinkle with coarse or brown sugar. Change oven to grilling setting and brown for a few minutes. Be careful and watch closely, this can happen quickly. I browned mine for about 4 minutes. Enjoy warm or cooled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    Das sieht unheimlich gut aus! Ich kenne Pfirsichcobbler, aber mit Aprikosen stelle ich mir das auch wunderbar vor. Und zu Eis sag ich auch nicht nein.
    Liebe Grüße

    Ich kenne Cobbler tatsächlich auch mit Vanilleeis als Nachtisch, als sehr leckeren Nachtisch, um genau zu sein.
