Vegan Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler
*Recipe Video Tutorial Below*
I’ve fallen into pumpkin heaven and I can’t get up. Not that I even want to.
I love all things pumpkin as you know, but this, this takes pumpkin desserts to a whole new level of deliciousness. This Vegan Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler is a fall must have! Enjoy this soft chewy cake that’s just oozing with pumpkin caramel in every bite!
Can’t. Even. Deal.
This has all the right flavors. The spicy to sweet ratio in this is so spot on you’ll keep taking spoonful after spoonful because you won’t be able to get enough shoved into your mouth at once. (Or maybe that just happens to me??) Anyway, this is more on the splurge side as it does require sugar. Just make sure you use organic because regular sugar does have I believe animal bone in it. I know, so gross and like why?
This is probably going to be one of the easiest things you’ll ever make. You don’t need any fancy ingredients, all of this is made with what you most likely, already have in your cabinets. I’m pretty sure this would be off the hook using apple too but we’ll get to apple recipes soon enough.
The whole trick and secret to this is the hot water you pour on top at the very end before baking. While in the oven the water seeps down into the cake creating this rich, creamy, and thick pumpkin caramel sauce that is To.Die.For. You get all the deliciousness that’s made in the cake right into your very own vegan caramel. It’s mind blowin’ not gonna lie.

Another important thing to keep in mind while making this that I read in the original recipe was to make absolute sure your baking powder is up to date as this recipe won’t work without it. For instance if you use an old, out of date baking powder your cake will turn up more on the mushy side instead of having a more cake like texture. Oven times also vary so as the original recipe called for a 40 minute bake time, mine was done at exactly 1 hour. I started to check it at the 45 minute mark. You know it’s done when the middle is set and not jiggly.
I topped this with a dairy-free, vegan vanilla bean ice cream and I also tried it with a vegan coconut ice cream. You can use any ice cream you like but I found this to be most delicious with the coconut flavored ice cream, maybe that’s just the pregnancy because I’ve never intentionally paired pumpkin and coconut together. Oddly enough and as strange as it may sound, it’s rather quite delicious.
This will for sure be on your holiday dessert menu from here on out. It’s so good I just can’t get enough. Welcome to my pumpkin craze. Enjoy!
