From Guest Blogger Isabel - Whole Wheat Cinnamon Apple Cobbler

I'm excited to again participate in the Pittsburgh Guest Blogger Event 2016 shenanigans, organized by Alex from everybody loves you... Thanks Alex! For links to all participants & posts, please see the bottom of this post.

Today on YumYumPgh is a delicious post from Isabel at - many thanks to her!

Hi there! I’m Isabel from and I’m very excited to be guest posting for Yum Yum PGH today.

As part of the rigorous, demanding and mouthwatering process of researching what recipe I wanted to make and share, I made my way to Yum Yum’s recipe index for a little inspiration.

Have you SEEN IT?

If not, stop reading immediately and click on her link in the top menu. She’s got an insane number of recipes under her belt that all look and sound absolutely delicious. Never mind cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, I’m cooking through Yum Yum’s entire blog.

Once I regained my composure, I began to see a trend – she likes desserts. Actually, she loves desserts.

Who doesn’t, right?

So why not make Yum Yum and you (and me!) happy with a nice, rustic spoonful of warm apple cobbler?

Made with Granny Smith apples, whole wheat flour and a generous amount of cinnamon, this homemade Whole Wheat Cinnamon Apple Cobbler is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Topped with a thick, wholesome crust, this dessert pairs perfectly with a tall glass of milk or a big, fat scoop of vanilla ice cream.

The best part about this recipe is that you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

What are you waiting for? Get baking!
