Tips for Perfect Pumpkin Cobbler

Cobbler gets its name from the biscuit topping which looks a bit like cobblestones. But how do you make sure your homemade pumpkin cobbler recipe comes out perfect?

To start with, remember the pumpkin is one of the most important components in this dessert. You will need pumpkin puree for the following pumpkin cobbler recipes. Don’t use pumpkin pie mix. Either use canned 100% pumpkin puree or prepare your own.

Make cobbler a day or two in advance if you like. Once it’s completely cooled, cover it with foil and refrigerate it. When you’re ready to serve the cobbler, let it stand for an hour at room temperature. After that, warm the dessert back up in a 350 degrees oven for 20 minutes.

Cobblers can be frozen for up to a month but they are better if you prepare and freeze the filling and then add the topping once you’ve thawed it out since the topping might go a bit mushy if frozen and thawed.

How to Serve Pumpkin Cobbler

Vanilla ice cream is a classic addition or perhaps you are more into whipped cream. Caramel sauce drizzled over the top always finishes off a homemade cobbler beautifully.

This is quite a filling dessert and we find even a small portion goes a long way. With the juicy pumpkin underneath a sweet, crumbly topping, everyone loves homemade pumpkin cobbler recipes.

Quick Blueberry Pumpkin Cobbler

Making 8 servings, this recipe is quick and easy. The sweet yet tart flavor of blueberries adds another dimension to the flavor.

This unusual recipe has a pumpkin and blueberry layer and a nut topping. Adding hot water to the cobbler before baking ensures you will get plenty of sauce in the cobbler.

Use brown or white sugar in the fruit mixture. You can use any kind of nuts in the topping too. Put the baking dish in a rimmed tray just in case any of the fruit mixture bubbles out.

Make sure the baking powder is fresh, else the cobbler will be mushy. Serve this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. This could be your new favorite fall dessert!
