Pumpkin Breakfast Cobbler

March 2, 2014Teresa

Pumpkin Breakfast Cobbler is one humdinger of a recipe! Oh, my, I love it when a new recipe turns out well. Pumpkin Breakfast Cobbler is half coffeecake and half cobbler. It’s the best of both worlds–kind of cake like, but with a gooier texture and spectacular taste that’s out of this world. You start with a cake mix batter for the “crust” layer, add a pumpkin pie mix layer, then a pecan layer topped with streusel. After baking the cobbler is iced with powdered sugar icing. This breakfast entree is scrumptious with a capital “S!”

I was trying to think of lots of sweet things I could make for our Ladies’ Retreat breakfast meal without having to go to the store and realized I had some pumpkin left over from Christmas baking that I could use up. I decided to try one of my Breakfast Cobblers and see how it would turn out with a pumpkin layer instead of a pie filling layer. I borrowed the pumpkin pie mix layer from my Pumpkin Dessert recipe, and decided to add a layer of pecans since I had so many bags on hand. Other than that, it is very similar to the Blueberry Breakfast Cobbler recipe I posted a couple of days ago.

Pumpkin Breakfast Cobbler turned out beyond my wildest dreams! It was certainly my favorite of the 15 or so different things I made for the breakfast and everyone I know who sampled it loved it too. It does have a few steps so it’s perhaps not in the super quick and easy field like some recipes, but it’s really not difficult. The key to the recipe, though, is baking it long enough. It does set up better if you cook it a little bit longer than most of my Breakfast Cobbler recipes. The regular ones using pie filling take between 30 and 45 minutes. This one takes almost an hour. But it is just so-so-so-so-so good!

If you want a wonderful special occasion breakfast recipe especially for holidays, I can’t recommend this recipe high enough. It’s truly sensational and you are sure to get rave reviews when you make it. If you like pumpkin in anything sweet, you are sure to love this recipe.
