Cake Mix Berry Cobbler

You just need 3 ingredients for this amazing cobbler!

Cake Mix Berry Cobbler from Table for Seven

A couple of weeks ago, we had a little family BBQ at our place. My sister asked if she could bring a new dessert ( um..of, course..bring it quickly!).  It’s was a fast, little cake that a friend at work told her to try.  It was delicious, fabulous and an all-around super duper cake, we would be insane not to try it.

Just paraphrasing, she may of just said “it’s really good!”.

She whipped it together an popped it in my oven.

We waited. and waited. and waited.  People were wondering..what’s up with this cake?

It’s been over an hour now. She kept checking it an it, wasn’t done yet. Parts of it were…so, my family decides to start picking at the finished parts of the cake.  Eating it with ice cream with the cake blazing hot straight from the oven.

Desperate? Yes, that’s my family when it comes to dessert.

The problem..she mixed the cake with the fruit. Tossed it around and coated the fruit.

Don’t do that!

You will still get a tasty cake, but, it will take a billion years to bake and will look like something from Willy Wonka exploded in your baking dish.

But, make it correctly and you got yourself one seriously yummy cobbler. Warm, with ice cream. Don’t forget the ice cream.

It’s a must-

    bummer on the bread WMR šŸ™ But, so, glad you were able to clean out your pantry and have a tasty dessert šŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Hi all, I saw this recipe and I thought – what did I have to loose….
    I had some frozen fruit that had been in the freezer too long, I had an expired white cake mix and some gingerale that I couldn't remember when I bought it……
    I put the three together and – wella – I have a great dessert.

    I can't wait to try it with good stuff!

    That being said – I tasted a pinch of the cake mix to be sure it didn't taste rancid before using and it was sealed so I wasn't worried about any mold like they are warning about in pancake mixes.

    the soda was unopened and the bottle had been in the basement where it never got hot

    and I rinsed the fruit to remove the "ice" that had gathered on it.

    At any rate I have a good treat where I might have just thrown all the ingredients away because of a date on the box.

    A happy ending – can't say the same for the beer bread I made – it got thrown away…..

      @erin, hi I was wondering if I could use fresh berries? Iā€™m using a keto cake mix & Fresca.

  3. erin says:

    Hi geri! I have not used seltzer with this cake, but, I don't think it would be a problem.. Please let me know how it works out šŸ™‚

  4. erin says:

    I have a similar recipe but uses seltzer instead. Do you think it will work in this recipe????

  5. erin says:

    Canned peaches and a 12 ounce can of root beer, not diet.

  6. erin says:

    Hi Maggie- I have made a similar cake with a butter topping…1 stick of melted butter + 1/2 cup water worked well.

  7. erin says:

    My mom makes something very similar to that with apples! I love it! This is really similar..just a few less steps šŸ™‚

  8. erin says:

    Hi Stephanie- I did have a few stray pieces of cake mix in mine too..not too much. I used 1 1/2 cans of soda..maybe increasing it to a full 2 may help. So glad you liked it!

  9. erin says:

    Hi Beverly- any frozen, 24oz fruit should work fine. Enjoy!

  10. erin says:

    did you use canned peaches or fresh and the root beer was it the full 18oz or just a 12 oz can?
    we camp and love peach cobbler would love to try this.

  11. erin says:

    my mom makes a similar cobbler. It uses any cake mix. Place canned fruit with juice in bottom of 9×13 pan. Pour cake mix over the top and dot with butter. Sprinkle nuts over the top if desired. Bake 50 to 60 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. My top with ice cream or cool whip.

  12. erin says:

    Hi..I tried this and liked it but there was still dry cake mix after baking? Is that normal? I really thought my husband wouldn't like it but he did…..will definitely make again and maybe use a little more of the soda!

  13. erin says:

    Hi Misty, How much butter? Not a fan of sprite so I thought I might use the butter??

  14. erin says:

    can you uses rubarb

  15. erin says:

    That sounds delicious misty! I will have to give it a try šŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting!!

  16. erin says:

    Thank you Lin! It's VERY easy and super yummy šŸ™‚ Enjoy!

  17. erin says:

    I make one similar to this all the time. I usually use can fruit and instead of soda on top I use melted butter. It taste great and everyone always loves it.

  18. erin says:

    Thank you, sounds yummy & easy

  19. erin says:

    Thank you!!

  20. erin says:

    It's a tried and true recipe, Erin. Closest thing I've tasted (and cooked) to my mom's old deep dish peach cobbler recipe. Enjoy!

  21. erin says:

    Sounds yummy AFT1..please let me know if you try it šŸ™‚

  22. erin says:
