Butter – I used 6 tablespoons of butter in the recipe; use the brand you like the best.



Flour – In this recipe, we used self-rising flour to make the cobbler’s crust. If you’ve run out of this ingredient, you can make it at home; here’s how! Combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to make 1 cup of self-rising flour.

Pour Batter Onto Pecans and Butter

We melted the butter in the baking dish to make the pecan cobbler, added the pecans, and then poured the batter on top before baking.  

Please ensure that you do not stir the batter once it’s inside the baking dish. This technique gives the cobbler the moist and buttery flavor we all know and love.


Melt The Butter

In preparing the Pecan Cobbler, we added the butter to the baking dish and then placed it in the oven to melt. An alternative way to melt the butter is to use the stovetop. You can either do this by the double boiler method or over low heat.


Storage Method

To prepare the Pecan Cobbler for storage, allow it to cool completely, then place it into an airtight container. It can keep in the fridge for up to four days, or you can freeze it for about 2-3 months of storage.
