Why this gluten free pumpkin cobbler is the ultimate comfort food:

I really liked this creamy gluten free pumpkin cobbler. Mr. Fearless Dining LOVED it. He is my guy who loves the combination of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Here are some of his reasons why he wants me to make this again so soon.

  • The marshmallow fluff elevates this cobbler to a whole new level. If you love sweet potatoes with a marshmallow topping, this cobbler will become one of your favorites.
  • This cobbler is topped with a light, fluffy topping.
  • It is pure comfort food in a bowl!

This is my go to recipe rather than pumpkin pie.”

Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

  • Gluten-Free Flour Blend—I tested this recipe using Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend and King Arthur’s Measure for Measure Gluten-Free Blend. That doesn’t mean others will not work; I just have not tested other flours, and I can not guarantee the recipe will work if you use other mixes.
  • Xanthan Gum – If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  • Pumpkin Puree – I used canned pumpkin. You can use fresh or canned in this recipe. If you want to roast your pumpkin, you can follow the directions on how to roast a pumpkin, found in my gluten free pumpkin cheeecake recipe. Do not use pumpkin pie filling.
  • Evaporated Milk – Use milk or non-dairy coconut evaporated milk.
  • Marshmallow Fluff – It is in a jar, and I add it on top of the cobbler. You can use regular marshmallows as well.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Step 2: Melt the butter and then whisk the rest of the wet cobbler topping ingredients.

Step 3: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix gently.

HINT: Do not overmix the batter. The cake topping will be fluffier if you mix it until it is just barely mixed.

Step 4: Add the pumpkin and other ingredients to a bowl and whisk.

Step 5: Pour the pumpkin mixture into an 8×8 pan. Drop marshmallow fluff on top.

Step 6: Gently mix in the fluff. Leave the big chunks because they melt into the cobbler topping deliciously!

Note: You can use large or mini marshmallows in place of the fluff.

Step 7: Use a large spoon to drop the cobbler topping batter over the pumpkin and marshmallow. Let the marshmallow show through in some areas.

Step 8: Bake the gluten free pumpkin cobbler at 350º F for 30 minutes until bubbly. Serve warm or cold.

  • Omit the marshmallow fluff for a more basic pumpkin cobbler.
  • Top with my easy Bourbon Caramel Sauce and ice cream.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn’t mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. You can use canned pumpkin as I did, or use freshly baked pumpkin. If you want to use fresh, use my directions on how to roast a pumpkin in my gluten free pumpkin cheesecake recipe.
  3. I used almond milk but other dairy-free kinds of milk will work but I do not recommend canned coconut milk.
  4. You can use mini or regular-sized marshmallows if you prefer.
  5. This cobbler will keep fresh for up to 3 days in the refrigerator, or for up to 3 months frozen.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.

  1. How much melted butter goes into the cobbler mixture? I just started to make this and noticed that the only butter mentioned is in the pumpkin part of the recipe.

  2. Looks delicious but you didn’t post a note about the 1/2 cup of the non-dairy milk (there is an asterick beside it and it states see note).
