Cake Mix Cherry Cobbler

Cake Mix Cherry Cobbler, Mmmm this stuff is tasty! Sometimes you just need something sweet! Am I right?

Usually, I reach for something of the chocolate variety, but once in a while, I want cherries.  Not the healthy cherries, I want the cherry pie filling goo-covered cherries. 

This recipe is quick, fast, cheap and uses items that you probably already have available in your pantry and refrigerator. Ingredients such as canned cherry pie filling, cake mix, oats, almond extract and butter…that’s it.

My kids can help whip this simple dessert up, if I melt the butter they can do the rest. And yes, this is not a recipe “from scratch” but once in a while, that’s just fine. 

Cake Mix Cherry Cobbler couldn’t be easier to make and satisfies a sweet tooth in no time at all. I love knowing that I have an easy dessert in my repertoire that I can make quickly and not break a sweat. It really is so simple!

You may also have heard this type of dessert referred to as a “dump cake”. Either way you describe it, just know that it is easy and delish. My preferred title includes cobbler, that’s just me.

What is a cobbler?

Cobbler is a dish consisting of a fruit or savory filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a batter, biscuit, or dumpling before being baked. In my version the batter comes from a cake mix, butter and coats combo.

What makes a cobbler different from a pie?

In one word, crust. Pies have either one or two crusts, cobblers do not. Cobblers have a “messier” look to them. Not a clean and crisp edge. You may get a bubbly edge from all that delicious fruit.

This recipe for Cake Mix Cherry Cobbler has been on Who Needs A Cape? since nearly the beginning of our site. I decided to freshen it up and give it some new pictures. The older picture just didn’t do it justice, even simple desserts need a pretty picture.

Now if you’ve been following our site for a while you may have noticed that I really enjoy desserts with cherry pie filling. Not gonna lie, I always have. Be sure to scroll down as I’m linking a few other cherry treats to enjoy.

Let’s talk toppings! I made some homemade whipped cream, it was the perfect topping. You can also use canned whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Although, no topping is really needed but it does take this sweet treat to the next level of deliciousness.

Tips for making Cake Mix Cherry Cobbler:

  • Use vanilla extract if you do not have almond extract.
  • Like less cobbler topping? Half the butter, oats and cake mix.
  • I used a round baking dish approximately the same size as a 9×9 baking dish.
  • Serve with whipped cream or ice cream after cooling.

  8. This is just made with the butter, and will bake without using milk or eggs in the cake mix? I really want to try this but I’ve never heard of just using butter.

    • Yup, use only the ingredients listed on this recipe. Traditional ingredients for baking a cake are not required. Enjoy 🙂

  9. Kristen says:

    Very important pointer for this recipe! Do NOT use salted butter or the topping will come out way too salty. 🙁

    • Barbara Inabnit says:

      I wish this was said before I made it. I had both kinds of butter, but I decided to use the salted one. Because it didn’t tell me. I just made it am going to serve it tonight to my daughter and Son in law. It is his favorite kind of Cobbler. He will eat everything that is made with cherries 🍒.

    I used to make this dessert when my kids were little, which was many moons ago. I am now gluten free, so I used this recipe with a gluten free yellow cake mix. I also added a can of sour cherries, drained, to the canned cherry pie filling. Was more tart that way. Delicious. I added some chopped walnuts to half of the top and left the other half walnut free. And voila!! So very delicious!

  11. Hi
    Just came across your site and want to make this this weekend. When you say oats are you talking about quick oats are the old fashion oats?
    Thanks

  12. 1/8 t? Is that teaspoon?

  13. Can you double this and bake in a 9 x 13 pan?

  14. I was looking at the yellow cake mix in my pantry and used the lemon cake mix by mistake. Good thing I used vanilla extract. BUT it was so good. Had my friends try some they really liked with the lemon cake mix. Yummy. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
