Looking for a sensational summer dessert? Check out my pineapple cobbler recipe. Every bite is bursting with pineapple sweetness with a deliciously crumbly cobbler crust.
Do you love cobblers, whether it’s a strawberry, cherry, or peach cobbler? How about pineapple upside-down cake? Well, this pineapple cobbler takes the best of both desserts to make a scrumptious summer treat.
All you need is 6 ingredients to make this super easy pineapple cobbler recipe: baking mix, canned pineapple, brown sugar, flour, butter, and milk. Then it will be ready to eat in just a few simple steps. First, we have to make the pineapple filling and then the topping. In about 30 minutes it will be ready to eat.
There’s just something about the sweet pineapple combined with the deliciously buttery crust that sends my taste buds into overdrive! Fortunately, I’m not the only one who loves this recipe, so I regularly make pineapple cobbler every summer. To take it to the next level, serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Now let’s go ahead and make this beauty!
- Baking mix (such as Pioneer or Bisquick)
- Pineapple chunks (important that you have chunks here)
- Brown sugar
How to Make Pineapple Cobbler
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 that until it is all completely blended and thickened, with no lumps.
Then stir in your pineapple chunks.
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.
In a medium bowl, stir together the brown sugar and baking mix.
Stir in milk.
Stir until the cobbler batter is smooth and creamy.
Pour batter evenly over the .
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).
Please make this soon! Serve warm.
Store leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days and simply reheat in the microwave before serving.
To really emulate that pineapple upside-down cake flavor, you can totally fold 1 small jar of maraschino cherries into your filling.
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!
Can I use fresh pineapple in my pineapple cobbler?
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.

I made this yesterday and ate two servings. It is delicious!!
These are 3 of my favorite recipes because I LOVE pineapple and I LOVE simple!!!! My Mom & Daddy worked in the cotton mills of Gastonia. We always had a garden so we ate better then most people. Mom cooked everything from scratch but loved cake mix and vanilla wafers! We always had dessert on Sunday and banana or pineapple pudding were
favorites! I make them all and strawberry. Thank you for all of the great recipes and especially the cook books!!!
Hi Ruth, you are so very welcome! Thank you for your comment and your rating, really appreciate you!❤️
I only have pineapple chunks in heavy syrup. Walmart substituted this in my order. Will it work?
Sure will! I would half the brown sugar in the filling, maybe just use 1/8 of a cup instead of a fourth.
I intend to try your reccipe, but curious should in the pineapples be in syrup, or just in ` 100 percent juice? I probably just missed it, or maybe it is obvious , that it should be the juice.
Juice is preferred but syrup is usable. Thanks for asking! I need to add that to the recipe card. Another dear reader had pineapple in syrup and I suggested reducing the brown sugar in the filling to 1/8 of a cup.
This is another wonderful recipe. When my husband saw the recipe he immediately sent it to me because it sounded so good. After I made it he agreed that it was delicious. Thank you once again, Christy, and God bless you!
Thank you so much, Janel! May He richly bless you and yours as well!
Do you need to bake it any longer when you use the 9×9 Pan?
I bake until it tests done. I just look at baking times as great suggestions and starting points but the proof is in the toothpick. 🙂
I just made this, but there is no way to get this in a 9×9 pan. It takes the 9×13. I tried a 9×9 first but it wouldn’t hold all the topping so i had to move it into a 9×13. You say this serves 4. Surely that is an error. It will easily serve 6 or 8. I tasted the batter when I was moving it to the larger baking dish and it tastes yummy, but hope you will correct the recipe.
Hi Suzanne, made this in a 9 x 9 but also listed the 9 x 13 so like you experienced you have another option. And it serves 4 in our house, we must have a bigger appetite then y’all! but am glad you like how it tasted.
I just made this again today and it is delicious, but again I repeat, it has to be in a 9×13. Just won’t fit in a 9×9. Yummy!
I bought the ingredients for this cobbler yesterday and will be making it this weekend. It sounds really good and my husband loves pineapple so I’m sure he’s going to enjoy it!
