I love summer and I love baking. When I make desserts a lot of times those desserts are made from scratch. Don’t get me wrong, I love baking from scratch, but sometimes I am lazy and don’t want to spend the time baking from scratch. When I want to bake, but I’m in a lazy mood I turn to my file of easy recipes. My 3 Ingredient Cherry Cobbler is a favorite of mine because there are so many different ways I can make it. The basic recipe is cake mix, fruit, and butter. The best part about this recipe is that you can do fresh fruit, frozen fruit, or pie filling.
In today’s edition of “Kiah is being lazy, but wants to make something” I used jarred pie filling I bought from Trader Joe as the fruit portion.
- 1 9×11 pan
- 1/2 a bag of white cake mix
- 5 TBS of butter
- 32 ounces of pie filling/ 4-6 cups of frozen fruit/ 4-6 cups of fresh fruit
- I used a 9×11 pan because it cost $1 and I wanted something that I wouldn’t miss if it got left at Mike’s work. Because the pan is smaller I used half the amount of cake mix and less butter.
- If you make this in a 9×13 pan use the whole bag of cake mix and 1 stick of butter.
- If you use frozen fruit or fresh fruit I would highly suggest adding some sugar to your berries. The amount of sugar depends on the fruit and how sweet you like your fruit to be.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Place your fruit in the pan in an even layer
- Evenly sprinkle your cake make over the surface of the fruit
- Slice butter thinly and layer on top of cake mix
- Bake until the edges are brown and the fruit is bubbly. This was about 30 minutes for me.
- This step is totally optional, but will give the cobbler a nice all-over brown color. Turn your oven to broil and broil until the cobbler is browned. This happens fast to make sure you watch it. I try to do this because the cobbler can come out with white patches and broiling helps give it a nice uniform golden brown color.
