How To Make Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler
One of the things that I love about this cobbler recipe is it makes its own caramel sauce at the bottom of the baking dish.
Truly what could be more fall-like than caramel and pumpkin all in one dessert recipe. Let's get started in baking up this sweet pumpkin dessert.
If you have read any of my other recipes you know I'm a huge believer in sifting my flour when baking. Sifting flour for baking will help to add a little air into the flour.
On the plus side sifting also removes any clumps there might be.

Now that we talked about sifting lets sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add to this the sugar and spice then mix all these ingredients together.
Set this bowl aside until we are ready to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
In a medium size mixing bowl add pumpkin puree. Sometimes it can be hard to find canned pumpkin puree this time of year.
So you can order some on Amazon or you can make fresh homemade pumpkin puree in the Instant Pot.
Along with the pumpkin puree add into the mixing bowl melted butter and vanilla extract. Mix these ingredients together really well.
Not to worry you didn't forget the eggs, this is an eggless dessert recipe.
Remember that bowl of sifted flour, now you can add that to the wet ingredients. Making sure to combine the ingredient together well.
This is a thicker batter but easy to mix by hand but you can also use your hand mixer.
Pour the batter into an 8-inch prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with chopped pecans and set aside.
Easy Cobbler Recipe
Most cobbler recipes have a fruit or savory filling at the bottom of the baking dish. This pumpkin pecan cobbler has a caramel sauce at the bottom.
In a smaller mixing bowl mix together brown sugar and white sugar together. Pour really hot water over the brown and white sugar to dissolve the sugars.
With the sugars dissolved pour sugar water over the top of the batter. Place into a preheat 350℉ oven and bake 40-45 minutes.
You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the pumpkin dessert.
Once the cobbler recipe is done remove it from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes to cool before serving.
I love sharing tips and tricks I have found when making recipes. This recipe I have a few for.
- The first is this pumpkin pecan cobbler recipe is best served warm and with ice cream. Drizzle a bit of caramel sauce over the top to kick it up a notch with flavor. Don't forget to add more pecans!
- Since this recipe is best served warm make it right before you plan to serve it.
- Instead of mixing the sugars and water together, you could sprinkle the sugars on top of the batter before adding the pecan. Then pour the water into the baking dish over the top of the unbaked dessert.
- You could press the pecans down a bit into the batter so they stay put for more even distribution.
This simple and easy fall recipe would be perfect to add to the Thanksgiving dinner dessert table. With all the warm and cozy spices and flavors that say fall, it's hard not to indulge in a dish of this pumpkin pecan cobbler.
