For the Topping:

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1 1/2 cups very hot water


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) to create an autumn ambiance.

In a mixing bowl combine 1 cup + 3 tbsp. of all-purpose flour, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp of salt, 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and 1/2 tsp of cloves. Let these ingredients blend together while you prepare for the next step.

In another bowl mix together 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup of milk, 1/4 cup of melted butter (or vegetable oil) and 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Observe as they transform into an aromatic batter.

Pour this batter into a small casserole dish, with high sides measuring about eight inches. This will be the canvas for your autumn masterpiece.

Now in another bowl, combine 1/2 cup each of granulated sugar and brown sugar along with a quarter cup of chopped pecans. Let this mixture be the symphony that tops your cobbler batter.

Here’s the twist; without stirring anything gently pour one and a half cups of water over the entire creation. Trust in this process; it’s part of the enchantment.

After baking it to perfection let the cobbler cool for around 5 to 10 minutes. This moment of anticipation is just as wonderful, as that first bite.
