Preheat oven to 375°F. In a bowl, mix flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk and vanilla extract; stir until mixture forms a smooth batter. Gently stir in butter.
Spread batter evenly in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (it will be a very thin layer) and scatter pineapple chunks evenly over batter.
Bake until pineapple has fallen to bottom of pan and top is puffed and golden brown and springs back slightly when touched in middle, 25 minutes. Cool cobbler slightly and then serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
Delightful! Easy, convenient ingredients, couldn't be quicker! A great back-pocket recipe to whip up if a friend pops in for a chat. I can't wait to try variations adding coconut flakes, or substituting peaches & almonds, cinnamon-dusted apples & walnuts, berries, or using toasted semolina instead of the flour for a more complex, nutty flavor. Thank you so much!
This is very good. I saved the juice from the canned pineapple and reduced it on the stove while this was cooking. At the end I added a tbsp of butter, and topped the cobbler with this. Don't discard the juice. Use it to make an awesome topping to make this even more delicious!!!
This recipe is one my favorites! I cut it out of an All You magazine and make it quite often now. Not only is it delicious, it's super easy and uses ingredients you likely already have on hand. Thanks, All You! :)
