Make this quick and easy cobbler recipe with canned pineapple and other on-hand pantry items.

How to Make It

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Super Quick & Easy

Found myself in a bind when I had only 30 minutes to make a dish for a party. I had fresh cut pineapple on hand so I searched for any recipe I could find that used pineapple and other on-hand ingredients. Found this recipe. Perfect! Got it all mixed and ready for the oven just as the oven finished preheating. And the bonus, it was well received at the party among other desserts that probably took hours to make. WIN!

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!!!

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 recipe was so simple I was able to gather all the ingredients from my pantry. It was a real crowd pleaser at my dinner party.

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! :)

I wanted apple cobbler but only had a can of pineapple so I searched and found this recipe. Watching my weight so instead of ice cream or cream I had it with a side of greek yogurt. Very tasty combo.
