Easy Recipe: Cherry or Peach Cobbler


I had pinned a cherry cobbler recipe on my To-Do List board on Pinterest from the Mom Spark blog earlier this year.  Since then, I had been able to try the recipe a few times and ended up making a couple of minor changes according to my family's preferences.

I also was able to try the recipe using canned peaches.  Although my family liked both, I think the cherry version is their favorite.  What other types of fruit should I try with this recipe?

Recipe:  Easy Cherry or Peach Cobbler

INGREDIENTS:

1 can (approx. 21oz or larger) cherry pie filling or cling peach slices
1 box yellow cake mix
3/4 cup or 1-1/2 sticks butter or margarine (melted)

Step 1.  Preheat oven at 400 degrees.

Step 2.  Pour the entire contents of the canned fruit into a 9"x13" rectangular pan, making sure to spread out the fruit evenly.

Step 3.  Cover the layer of fruit with a layer of dry cake mix.  Be sure to use all the cake mix.

Step 4.  In a microwave-save bowl, heat the butter 10 seconds at a time until completely melted.

Step 5.  Pour the butter over the entire layer of dry cake mix, making sure not to forget the edges and corners.


Step 6.  Bake in oven for approximately 25 minutes or until the cobbler has set and turned a golden brown.

Although I love to serve this dessert warm from the oven, it is actually easier to serve after you refrigerate it.  That allows you to serve the portions in neat squares rather than a pile of soft fruit and crumble.  I usually put the chilled servings on individual plates and then microwave each serving for 20 seconds or so.

This is how the peach cobbler looks served hot from the oven . . .
