Cherry Berry Cobbler

I just cannot stop making this cobbler.  I made it the first time back in November and then have made it about four times since (including this past Sunday for Smith’s birthday dinner).  We just love, love, love it!  It’s simple to make and delicious every time.  I also think this would make a yummy Valentine’s Day dessert.  After a special meal, you could enjoy this delicious cobbler with the one you love.
This recipe serves 6 to 8 adults.
Shopping List
1 (10 oz) package of frozen mixed berries (do not thaw)
1 (21 oz) can of cherry pie filling
1 yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
Ice cream, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 baking dish.
Spread your  frozen berries across the bottom of your baking dish.  Next, spoon your pie filling on top of the frozen berries and then sprinkle over the box of dry cake mix.   Finally, drizzle the melted butter over everything.
Bake uncovered 55-60 minutes.  
Remove from oven and serve immediately (with a little ice cream if you so desire).
I promise…you’ll make it once and then make it over and over again.

    I love a good cobbler….especially with a scoop of Bluebell Homemade Vanilla on top!

    this sounds so easy and delicious! I would need mine with a large scoop of ice cream šŸ™‚

  • Mandi Moore January 21, 2015 at 2:27 pm

    Can't wait to make this one!

  • Candice January 21, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    Wow this looks so delicious and easy! For a healthier option, would it still cook the same without the butter? I mean i'm sure that's what MAKES this dish (who doesn't love butter?), but maybe there is an alternative? Thanks!

    Otherwise known as "dump cake". I've been making this recipe for years.

    After seeing this recipe this morning, I knew I had to make it today! I just made it and it is amazing!!! Thank you, Shay!

    Do you think this could be made with fresh strawberries too or is it best with frozen?

  • Mix and Match Mama January 21, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    In this particular recipe (especially strawberries), you should use frozen. Fresh berries will be really soggy. Enjoy!

    This is a dump cake….haha! I hate the name though, so I usually call it 'fruit crumble' or 'fruit cobbler' when serving it to guests. I have been making a similar recipe for years (my mom's recipe). First we pour 1 can crushed pineapple (juices and all) in the bottom of a 9×13 pan, then top with cherry pie filling, followed by the cake mix and butter. It is awesome with the pineapple, though the cherries are the predominant flavor!

    I used a Cinnamon Streusel muffin mix, since I did not have a yellow cake mix. FAB-U-LOUS!! Sprinkled on the mix, then sprinkled on the streusel topping pack, before the melted butter.

    immediately went to target yesterday to purchase the ingredients for this, only to get home and realize the can of cherry pie filling had rolled the the bottom of my daughters stroller (I prefer just using her city mini as a cart if I only have a few items on my list). I accidently shop lifted!!! I went back today to pay for the can, and long story short, made this dessert tonight. HOLY. MOLY. melt in yo' mouth delicious!!!!! plan to make it again sunday for a dinner party. šŸ™‚ thx for sharing!

    Did anyone make this and have the same problem as me? The parts that didn't have drizzled butter didn't bake – the parts with butter taste delicious but the parts where no butter landed ended up staying as powdered cake mix…

  • Stacey McDonough January 26, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    I also had the problem where some areas were left as powder and so I ended up drizzling a little extra butter on them and back in the oven for a few extra minutes. If there is a trick, I'd love to know. Either way it was delicious!!

    If I make this in the morning will it keep until evening?

  • Mix and Match Mama February 1, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    This will keep in the fridge all day! Just pop it in the oven when you're about ready to eat. Enjoy!

  • Jenn A January 9, 2016 at 10:59 pm

    Thanks Shay! Making tonight for guest!!!

  • arobinson February 15, 2016 at 7:15 pm

    This. Is. So. Good. I made this last night and served it a few minutes out of the oven with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. It was such an easy recipe and my family loved it. Great dessert to complete our family Valentine Dinner!!
