  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 cup 100% pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup oil I used Canola
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk can use regular milk


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cup boiling water


  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Stir in oil, pumpkin, vanilla extract and milk with a spoon. Spray a 7 1/2 x 11 baking dish with cooking spray and spread mixture into dish. Mixture will be thick. Make topping below and sprinkle over this mixture.

Topping Instructions:

  • Whisk together brown sugar and ground cinnamon and spread over pumpkin mixture. Sprinkle on nuts. Pour boiling water over all and do not mix.
  • Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes just until top is cooked. Bottom will be a sauce. Makes one cobbler or about 8 large servings.


You could make this in a 9 x 13 baking dish but will not be as thick and may take about 10 minutes less time to cook. Enjoy!
