Pineapple cobbler made in an iron skillet is a favorite at my house.

Pineapple Cobbler

If your family likes cobbler you will love this recipe. This has just the perfect amount of pineapple, cherries and coconut to make for a great dessert with whipped cream or ice cream. I really like it with coffee and I don’t even need a topping of any kind on mine. This will not last long because you will keep coming back for more!  You might also like our recipe for blackberry peach dump cake.

Iron skillet pineapple cobbler is a delicious dessert.

1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained (save 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice)
1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained
1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional

Spray a 10 inch iron skillet with cooking spray. Add the butter to the skillet and melt in the oven. In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the milk, pineapple juice and vanilla extract to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Pour into skillet with melted butter and mix with a spoon. Sprinkle on coconut flakes, pineapple chunks, cherries and nuts. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 35-40 minutes. Can brown top under broiler for a few minutes if you want it browned. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!

Note: You could also make this in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

    Being from Kentucky myself, I found your web site and couldn’t stop reading. I can relate to most of the sayings, it was such a blessing to read. Country folk are a special breed of their own. Keep blogging. God bless you.
