Pineapple Cobbler


What makes a Pineapple Cobbler? When I was first told the answer, I almost let out a chuckle. I didn’t know pineapple cobbler could be considered to be such a specific dessert. Yet, apparently it is and I can confirm it is. The fresh pineapple taste combined with the buttery crust creates one amazing-tasting dessert. It’s a perfect summer treat, but you can enjoy it any time of the year.


This really is the Best Pineapple Cobbler you’ll ever taste! Made with delicious pineapple and the best cobbler crust ever. Top this cobbler with ice cream and you’ll have the perfect summer dessert.



If you’re looking for the best pineapple cobbler recipe around, you’ve just found it, my friends. One bite of this sweet goodness and you’ll be back for seconds. (and maybe even thirds!)

So many times people tend to overlook the taste of pineapple and how it can be an awesome dessert addition. It’s sweet and has a great texture for standing up in crusts and other various type cobblers. 

I’m a firm believer that there is always a way to use up food that you’ve bought from the store and this cobbler recipe is the proof! If you find that you have some pineapple that needs to be used up, this pineapple cobbler is calling your name.

And trust me on this, after one bite you’ll be a believer! While this might be considered a “dessert”, I see no issues with enjoying a piece of this with a nice, hot cup of coffee in the mornings as well. After all, isn’t that an added perk of being an adult? 

Now that the warmer months are here, fill your belly with the best pineapple cobbler that you’ve ever tasted. It’s one that you just won’t want to miss!



You will only need these simple ingredients to make this homemade cobbler recipe:

  • MILK: I like to use whole milk when I make a cobbler crust, it gives it that rich flavor.
  • SELF-RISING FLOUR: Self-rising flour makes the crust fool-proof, you will never have to worry about the crust coming out too soggy or too crunchy!
  • SUGAR: Of course it wouldn’t be a dessert without granulated sugar. 
  • PINEAPPLE: To make this cobbler recipe as easy as possible I use crushed canned pineapple.
  • BUTTER: Melted butter on the bottom of the crust is the secret to the BEST COBBLER EVER!

  1. MAKE COBBLER CRUST: Mix together the flour and sugar. Add pineapple juice (reserve pineapple juice from 1 can of crushed pineapple) and milk.
  2. TOP WITH PINEAPPLE: Add melted butter to the baking dish and add crust batter. Top with pineapple. 
  3. BAKE: Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the top is slightly brown. 
  4. SERVE: Top with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!


No. It’s best to make and bake the cobbler immediately. 


For the best taste, serve it within an hour of baking it. The crust will become soggy if it sits too long.


Pineapple cobbler is best with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel.

This easy pineapple cobbler is made with fresh pineapple and just a handful of simple ingredients. Best of all, it comes together quickly without a mixer or any other special equipment!

Move over, blackberry cobbler! Pineapple cobbler is here! And if you haven’t tried pineapple cobbler before then let me tell you: DO IT soon.

As you know by now, I’m a huge Sprouts fan. Their produce is not only the freshest, but their prices are the best.

And good produce is key here—the pineapple I used in this cobbler? SO GOOD. Without the amazing (super sweet) pineapple I picked up at Sprouts, this cobbler wouldn’t have been half as special.

Why you’ll love this pineapple cobbler:

  • It’s packed with fresh pineapple rather than canned to ensure that your cobbler tastes like a tropical vacation
  • It’s really easy to make, requiring just a few minutes of active time and a little stirring
  • You probably have most or all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now. If not, they’re readily available at grocery stores!


how to make pineapple cobbler


  • Combine pineapple chunks, a little sugar, and lemon zest together in a bowl
  • Stir until the pineapple is coated in the sugar, then let sit for 10 minutes
  • Combine flour, whole milk, and a few more ingredients
  • Stir together until smooth
how to finish easy pineapple cobbler
  • Pour melted butter into a 9-inch baking dish
  • Pour the batter evenly over the butter
  • Spoon the pineapple (and any juices left in the bowl!) over the batter
  • Bake about 50 minutes, until the juices bubble and the top is golden


  • This recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of pineapple. You should only need 1 pineapple to get that amount unless the pineapple is really, really small. (I can usually get 4 cups of pineapple from one fruit.)
  • Taste your pineapple before adding the sugar. If it’s not very sweet you can add up to 1/4-cup of additional sugar.
  • Cut your pineapple into chunks about 1/2-inch to 1-inch thick. (I like it on the smaller size because it’s easier to eat but that’s up to you.)
  • The lemon zest helps brighten the flavor of the pineapple but if you don’t have a lemon on hand you can omit the zest.
  • I recommend cooling your dessert for at least half an hour before serving it so the juices can set up a little but you really can serve it right out of the oven—it will just be a little more messy.


Uneaten cobbler can be stored, covered with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Be sure to cool your cobbler completely before covering and refrigerating it. (If you cover it while it’s warm it can sweat.)

I don’t recommend freezing the cobbler.


You can serve this warm from the oven or cold the day after it’s made.

I love to serve any cobbler with vanilla ice cream, but there are lots of options for toppings!

  • Coconut sorbet would be delicious, like a piña colada
  • Mango sorbet
  • Strawberry ice cream and/or strawberry sauce
  • Whipped cream is always a good option (if you go that route you might consider a sprinkle of toasted coconut on top too!)
