How to Make Pineapple Cobbler

Place butter, flour, pineapple juice, and sugar in a saucepot and bring to a boil.

In a medium saucepot, place your butter and add in the juice from the cans of pineapple.  

Also, add in your brown sugar and flour.

Stir that up well and bring just to a boil over medium heat while stirring constantly.

Stir until completely thickened.

Stir that until it is all completely blended and thickened, with no lumps. 

Stir in pineapple chunks.

Then stir in your pineapple chunks. 

Pour filling into baking dish.

Pour this into a baking dish. This will make enough for a 9×13 but I’m using a 9×9 baking dish and it will just be a little deeper. 

Mix together milk, baking mix, and brown sugar to form batter.

 In a medium bowl, stir together the brown sugar and baking mix.

Stir in milk. 

Mix together until smooth.

Stir until the cobbler batter is smooth and creamy.

Pour batter over filling in baking dish.

 Pour batter evenly over the pineapple mixture

 Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the very center comes out clean (don’t stick the toothpick too far down, just about 1/2 an inch).

Store leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days and simply reheat in the microwave before serving.

Recipe Notes 

To really emulate that pineapple upside-down cake flavor, you can totally fold 1 small jar of maraschino cherries into your filling.

Recipe FAQs

What do you serve with pineapple cobbler?

Serve your pineapple cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Bonus points for adding a drizzle of caramel sauce. YUM!

Yes, you can use fresh pineapple chunks in your cobbler. However, the pineapple juice from the cans really enhances the filling’s delicious pineapple flavor, which is why I recommend using canned pineapple.

    Such an easy recipe. I used the 9×13 pan. It’s just me and my husband, so this is going to last us a few days. No complaints here and it is so yummy, especially with the ice cream. I’m going to have to make this again, for my kids and grandbabies!
