A hands-off dessert with yummy results!
Of all the desserts out there fruit cobblers are some of my favorite to make.
All you have to do is throw a few ingredients together, bake it, and then you’ve got a tasty dessert with very little work. And, this pineapple cobbler is even easier since we’re using canned pineapple- there’s no chopping or peeling involved at all.
To get started with this recipe you’ll need to reserve a cup of the juice that the canned pineapple comes in. This gives the cake-y part of the dish a little boost of pineapple flavor.
The other ingredients are pretty standard for cobbler recipes: sugar, flour, vanilla.
To bring out the vanilla flavor I like to have this with some vanilla ice cream. For a little extra something you could also drizzle it with some caramel sauce, too. The bright flavor of pineapple cuts through sweet flavors like vanilla and caramel for a tasty dessert that hits the spot.
This inventive dish just goes to show that even if you don’t have a lot of fresh fruit on hand that you can still make a tasty dessert- and it couldn’t be easier to make.
