Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler

I think I’ve found pumpkin dessert mecca.

I love me a good chocolate lava cake, but no other dessert has really ever come close to that pinnacle of delicious.

Until now?

If you don’t like chocolate as much as you like pumpkin, then we are close to something that will blow your mind. If you are like my husband and thinks any dessert that doesn’t involve chocolate should be illegal, then you might not like is so much.

But you guys, no matter where you stand on the choco-loving scale, you’ve at least got to give this a try at least once this season! It’s spicy, sweet, festive and gets thrown together in a snap.

This is like a pumpkin lava cake and cobbler love child. It’s got all the yummy factors that I love in a dessert and uses ingredients I’m 99% sure you already have in your pantry. #winning

Just be sure to remember to add in the baking powder because… WILL NOT work without it.

I speak from experience. Sad sad experience. I may have shed a {pregnancy induced} tear or two when I pulled it from the oven.



Here’s how to make it:

Stir all dry ingredients together in a small bowl: flour, sugar, spices and leavenings. I’m positive you all have these items in your pantry right now.

In a separate bowl, stir together all the wet ingredients: milk, vanilla, melted butter and pumpkin!

Now, incorporate the two. You’ll get a thick batter…exactly what you want.

Pour this into a small casserole dish and spread out evenly.

Like so!

Top this with even more sugar {I know it looks like a lot….} and some chopped pecans.

Right before it goes into the oven, pour over some super hot water. RESIST the urge to mix this. Pour it and forget it. I promise the oven will work it’s magic and create an amazing cakey, hot pumpkin lava situation that is worth the 40 minute wait.

You see? Puffy magic cake with…..wait for it……

Sweet pumpkin lava gooeyness!!!!!! Heaven, folks.

Divide into portions and serve.

Don’t forget the extra pecans and ice cream! Yes yes yes.

Super simple pumpkin cobbler for your Fall dessert table. Holla!
