Pumpkin Cobbler Ingredients

These are the ingredients you'll need to make this easy pumpkin cobbler with cake mix:

· Sugar: This recipe calls for white sugar, but you can use a mix of brown and white sugars if you like.
· Eggs: Two whole eggs are whisked with sugar until they're light and fluffy.
· Pumpkin: You can use store-bought pumpkin puree or make your own at home.
· Evaporated milk: Since most of the liquid is removed, evaporated milk produces thicker and more concentrated results than regular milk.
· Orange extract: A teaspoon of orange juice adds subtle brightness and enhances the other flavors.
· Spices: This pumpkin cobbler is flavored with cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and a pinch of salt.
· Cake mix: A package of yellow cake mix is sprinkled over the pumpkin mixture before baking.
· Butter: Melted butter is drizzled over the cake mix, adding richness and moisture.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"I made this tonight and it is a piece of heaven," raves SheShe1987. "I didn't have any orange extract, so I used vanilla extract. It will be added to the rotation."

"All of the flavor of a traditional pumpkin pie with all of the spices and just a hint of citrus from the orange extract," according to Allrecipes Allstar lutzflcat. "The filling is creamy, and the top of the cobbler is a soft and buttery crumble, just delicious."

"I used butter pecan cake mix instead [of yellow cake mix] and the flavor really complemented the cobbler and gave it more of a festive Thanksgiving feel," says Lindsay G.
