Easy Pineapple Cobbler Recipe

    This Easy Pineapple Cobbler can be made using fresh pineapple or canned pineapple, which makes this summer dessert is perfect all year round! Growing up in Hawaii, we had pineapple a lot! It was just always there, and I think I was a little spoiled by it being available year round. I couldn’t help but establish this great dessert at home as a little treat for guests in summer.

    Summer Cobbler

    Cobbler is a summer staple for us. It’s a great way to use seasonally fresh fruit from the farmer’s market, and they usually feed a crowd. Although that blueberry cobbler will forever be a classic American summer dessert, this version, featuring pineapple, is a fresher summer alternative!

    Can I make this cobbler Gluten Free?

    You bet! YES! You can make this pineapple cobbler recipe gluten-free. The only substitution to make is to swap out the flour for GF Flour. When I’m going to swap out flour I always pick a 1-to-1 GF flour like this King Arthur bag or Bob’s Red Mill bag. Using a direct swap makes baking gluten-free easy.

    How do I cut a fresh pineapple?

    Learning to cup a pineapple can be intimidating if you’re not sure what to do. Here’s how I learned how to slice a pineapple.

    1. Lay the pineapple on its side and slice off the top and bottom.
    2. Stand the pineapple back up and slowly cut down the sides of the pineapple to remove the thick outer layer. You’ll make about 8 – 10 cuts around the pineapple as you slowly remove the skin. 
    3. Once all the skin is removed, look for the “eyes”. Those are the little indentations that didn’t quite get removed when slicing off the skin. Use a sharp knife to dig those out and discard. 
    4. Slice the pineapple into quarters, just as like you would an apple.
    5. Remove the core of the pineapple. Slice the tough center core away from the pineapple flesh.
    6. Cut each long quarter in half lengthwise and cut into 1-inch chunks.

    What should I put on my cobbler?

    Of course, you can enjoy the pineapple cobbler as is, or you can top it with:
