  • For the Bars:
  • 2 canned fried apples 15oz or 425 g, original
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened, or 1-1/2 sticks
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 container vanilla or plain yogurt 6oz or 170 g
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk


  • Preheat oven at 350° F (about 177 ° C). Grease both the bottom and sides of a 13 x 9-inch baking pan and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir well the canned fried apples and cinnamon, and reserve. In a mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar at low speed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating at medium speed just enough to mix in.
  • Beat in vanilla extract. Combine both flour and salt in a medium bowl. Alternate half of the flour-salt mixture and then half of the yogurt, beating each time at low speed until combined. Then, add the remaining flour-salt mixture and the other half of the yogurt, beating each time until combined.
  • Spread 2/3 of the batter in the prepared baking pan. Top with the fried apple mixture. With a spoon, dollop the remaining batter on top of fried apples. Bake for about 27-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes clean.
  • Let cool for about 15-20 minutes on a wire rack and slice into 12 rectangles.
  • To prepare the glaze: Combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk, whisking very well until smooth. Drizzle over the fried-apple cobbler bars when they are still warm. Let glaze set and enjoy.
