This Halloween Pumpkin Cobbler has become our traditional Halloween dessert.  It’s kind of like an upside down pumpkin pie, but I like it even better.  It is so easy to throw together and is the perfect dish for fall when you are starting to crave pumpkin.  We eat this warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  It’s the perfect dessert to warm you up after a long night of trick or treating or after a cold game of football.  You are going to love the way your house smells when it is baking!

Save Recipe


  • 4 eggs
  • 3 c. pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. clove
  • 3 c. half and half
  • Topping:
  • 1 yellow cake mix (unprepared)
  • 1/2 c. butter (melted)
  • cinnamon and sugar (to taste)
  • chopped pecans (optional)


  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl then pour into a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over the top (I usually only end up using about 3/4 of the box).
  • Pat the cake mix down a little then pour melted butter evenly over the top. Then sprinkle with a little cinnamon and sugar (and pecans-optional).
  • Bake at 350 for 60 minutes. Knife in center should come out clean when it is done. Serve with cool whip or vanilla ice cream over the top.

    Erica, you missed the best ingredient! Sprinkle chopped pecans on top before you bake. It makes it so much better!

  2. Erica says:

    haha OH YEAH! I didn’t add them because Jared’s not a fan of nuts on dessert…

  3. Tami says:

    This looks soooo good! I can’t wait to try it.

    I’m loving your blog!!

  4. Leslie says:

    I've been making this dessert for years. We can't wait for the cool weather to come because it's our favorite! Gotta use the nuts.

  5. Pam says:

  7. Miller Family says:

    This looks so yummy! I can't wait to make it. I feel like I should know this, but I don't and feel stumped! I've only used canned pumpkin before and know that normally un-canned pumpkin should be cooked and what not… So, am I doing anything to the pumpkin before I mix it with the other ingredients?

  8. Erica says:

    @ Miller family.. it is 3 c. of canned pumpkin. Sorry, should have been more clear on that!

  9. Miller Family says:

    Thank you!

    This recipe looks amazing. I love pumpkin pie but I don't like the crust, so this is perfect for me.

  11. Lauren Gilliam says:

    This might sound stupid….but I’m confused on what kind of “clove” this is calling for…I know there are Gaelic cloves but I doubt that’s what this is

      It’s a spice (the ground kind). You can leave it out if you don’t have it.
