In our household, we love a good cobbler. Have you have made cobbler with cake mix before? Maybe you’re dying to learn how to make cherry cobbler with cake mix? Look no further! Today I’ll show you how to make cherry cobbler with cake mix using only three ingredients! Yes, that’s right only three ingredients to make a delicious family favorite! And if cherry ain’t your thing, you can use any of the boxed cake mixes…try apple, peaches, strawberries, and more….all made the same way, so have fun with it! Let’s jump into this easy Three Ingredient Cherry Cobbler with Cake Mix recipe!
How to make Cherry Cobbler with Cake Mix
For this recipe, start with a smaller square pan like an 8×8 pan or 9×9 pan. If you want to make a larger version, you can double the recipe and use a 9×13 pan instead. But for this recipe we are using a 9×9 pan.
Lay one can of Cherry Pie filling in the bottom of your ungreased 9×9 pan. Add a thick layer vanilla cake mix on top (roughly about 1/2″ thick). You can use more or less depending on taste–there is no right or wrong way to do this.
Once the cake mix is on top, use a stick of butter and slice the butter about 1/4″ slices and lay evenly across the top of the cake mix, spreading them out about 1/2″ apart. The butter will melt on top of the cake mix and create a nice, crispy cobbler crust!
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until you have a beautiful golden brown crust on top.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream if you want a real treat!
This 3 ingredient cherry cobbler is something I grew up on and remember it so fondly as a child. My mom used to let me help make it with her, so it’s perfect for kids to make because it’s so simple and doesn’t make a huge mess! It’s also create to make in a slow cooker or dutch oven too if you so choose!
Does Cherry Cobbler Have to Be Refrigerated?
Because it’s all canned, I do not think it technically needs to be refrigerated, but we do store ours in the fridge when we’re done eating it. No harm, no foul. I don’t think it would go bad on the countertop though because it doesn’t use fresh cherries or any dairy.
