We recently visited Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii. The food there was truly amazing…not one bad meal our entire trip. There was one dessert that I was totally floored by, though. In fact, we ate at the buffet a second time on our last night there for the sole purpose of my getting to enjoy this Pineapple Cobbler one last night.

Being the smartie that I am, I asked the server if there was any chance I could get the recipe. There are some Disney recipes that are kept secret, but they are often quite generous with recipes if you ask. So I did, and within 24 hours the chef has emailed me this very recipe! I couldn’t wait to get back home to try it out for myself.

Now, upon reading the recipe, I realized that it’s pretty much a basic cobbler recipe, just with a different fruit that you may not be used to having this way. Of course since pineapple is the most popular fruit in Hawaii, this recipe made perfect sense.

I picked up a couple of pineapples at the grocery store (in case one was bad!) and I was glad I did since one of them was nasty. If you’ve made cobbler before, this recipe will be a breeze for you, and if you hadn’t, I promise it isn’t difficult. It’s just a matter of cooking the fruit, then creating three different layers in the pan.

The recipe called for the pineapple cobbler to bake for 45 minutes, but it took nearly 10 extra minutes for mine to brown. No matter though, it was still incredibly delicious. So delicious in fact that my mom kept eating it straight out of the pan, making a complete mess of my stove-top and floor. So if you do make this for yourself, be sure to use a plate!

  1. I have been trying to print this recipe for a half an hour and I am getting very frustrated. Not sure why it has a print recipe button if you are not willing to allow the recipe to be printed.

    1. Hi Diane, It has nothing to do with my be willing to print. It’s usually the browser your using giving you trouble. Try another browser, another device or clear your cache.

    1. You need about 5 cups of fresh pineapple. A 20 ounce of pineapple can will yield about 2 drained cups. So 3 20-ounce cans should be plenty. You could probably do 2 20-ounce cans and 1 8-ounce cans. The most important thing is to make sure to drain the liquid really, really well.

  2. I have made this a few times and it has become a family favorite! Any ideas/suggestions regarding the use of Gluten Free flour here???

    1. Hi Connie, it’s my understand that gluten free flour works well in most recipes as a replacement for regular flour.

    1. Cornstarch is a thickener, it’s used to thicken the fruit base of a cobbler recipe. It can be left out, but the liquid would be thinner.

  3. I made this recipe where I live in Panamá with some very fresh piña and it was divine! I would recommend 2.5 T of corn starch, a little less sugar in the base, and adding a 1/2 t of vanilla to the base.

  4. Just made this but substituted 1 can crushed pineapple and 1 can crushed pineapple, also added half a jar of chopped cherries instead of fresh fruit. This turned out amazing and very easy to make!
