My Crock-Pot Pumpkin Cobbler is such an incredible (and incredibly easy!) fall dessert. I love letting my slow cooker do its magic — it’s a super hands-off recipe and fills my home with the most beautiful scent! After under two hours in the slow cooker, this recipe becomes a warm, spiced pumpkin cake, with an out-of-this-world layer of gooey pumpkin sauce at the bottom. It reminds me a lot of a traditional English steamed pudding! And since I’m from Ireland and a huge sucker for a good steamed pudding, you can probably tell how much I adore this recipe!

Here is how you make it (don’t forget to print the full recipe below): Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, pie spice, and salt in a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and pour them into the bowl of the slow cooker.
