Why this gluten free pumpkin cobbler is so great:
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 takes this cobbler to a whole new level. If you love things like 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!
- 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.
Recipe step by step directions:
Step 1: In a bowl, add the cobbler topping ingredients and whisk to blend.
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: In a bowl, add the pumpkin and other ingredients to a bowl and whisk.
Step 5: Pour the pumpkin mixture into an 8x8 pan. Drop marshmallow fluff on top.
Step 6: Gently mix in the fluff. Leave the big chunks because they melt into the cobbler topping in a delicious way!
Note: You can use large or mini marshmallows in place of the fluff.
Step 7: 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.
Tips and Recipe FAQ:
You can use freshly roasted pumpkin. I link a recipe with the directions above. Just be sure your roasted pumpkin is pureed very smoothly.
You can definitely make a thicker cake topping by doubling the topping recipe.
My favorite nuts to add are pecans, but you can also top with walnuts.
This gluten free pumpkin cobbler will keep fresh for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months.

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.
Hi Carmel, it should read 6 tablespoons melted butter. I edited to add that. Thank you so much.
Can I just use regular flour and cow's milk? Looks delicious
I haven't baked with regular flour in over 16 years. I really do not know how to use it any longer. Cow's milk will work fine.
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).
Oh, it was that you can use any non-dairy milk, but do not use canned coconut milk. I will add that in. Thank you!
