Ingredients for Pumpkin Cobbler
- Equipment: An Oven Proof Bowl
- Dessicated Coconut
- Self Raising Flour
- Vegetable oil
1 Step Then Bake
Before you start the process, firstly, turn the oven on to preheat at 320F/160C, so that the air temperature is even in the oven space.
Place all the dry ingredients into an oven proof bowl. I use a Pyrex bowl. Here you can see 1 cup each of flour, sugar and coconut
Add the cooked pumpkin, milk and the oil.
Combine the ingredients till it becomes a smooth mixture. It takes seconds to do this.
It will look like a thick slurry.
Place the batter into the preheated oven for 45 minutes till the top is beautifully crisp and golden brown.
To serve, cut into wedges and eat it while hot.
Or, leave it to chill and it is even more delicious the next day. The pumpkin will have absorbed the surrounding flavors of the coconut and the sugar is even denser in the pumpkin flesh. It's sensational!

This delicious cobbler is incredibly simple to make - it really takes just minutes to mix the ingredients together and you walk away while it's baking beautifully.
By the time dinner's over, this dessert will be ready to serve freshly baked from the oven.
To cook fresh pumpkin, firstly remove the thick outer skin, remove seeds, rinse and cut into small cubes.
Boil in water with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Add sufficient water to come up to about 3/4 level of the fruit in the saucepan. Take care that the water does not boil dry as pumpkin just sucks up the liquid.
The fruit should be tender but not pureed.
Drain well before use.
This versatile fruit absorbs the flavors around it, so for pumpkin recipes, I cook it in sugared water the evening before and let it steep in the syrup overnight. The result is a lovely sweet fruit for your cobbler.
For baked recipes, I prefer to use rice bran oil as it is a high temperature oil.
