Recipe: Easy Pineapple Banana Cobbler

Looking through my fridge and pantry for something to take to a barbecue tonight, I was at a loss. I had fresh pineapples and bananas, but couldn’t find any recipes online that sounded good, or that I had ingredients for. So, I whipped up my own creation. It’s summery, yet has substance (and isn’t particularly healthy, so enjoy in moderation).


1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into small pieces
2 bananas, sliced
1 cup brown sugar
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of vanilla

Simmer on medium heat until all ingredients are well-blended. Pour into 8×8 pan.


Here’s where I cheat a little. I love the shortcake recipe on the Bisquick box.

2 1/3 cups Original Bisquick mix
2/3 cup milk
3 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp butter, melted

Stir all ingredients together until dough forms. Drop by large spoonfuls onto cobbler filling. Sprinkle a touch of brown sugar on top if you’d like a little crunch. Bake for 15 minutes (or until crust begins to brown). Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping if desired.


Sauce Pan

This smelled so yummy heating up in the sauce pan!

Layer the filling in the 8×8 pan.

A little brown sugar on top gives it a nice crunch.

Finished product! It was hard not to eat any before the barbecue.

A little whipped topping is a nice finishing touch!
