Here's an easy one for Cherry Cobbler

1 can of Comstock Cherry Pie Filling
1 can Crushed Pineapple
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 cube Butter

Mix cherries and piceapple together and place in a square baking dish. Melt butter and mix with cake mix. Spoon over top of fruit and bake in 350 oven for about 30 minutes. Serve warm with a little scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Well, i know Stacie doesn't do pineapple--I bet you could substitute another fruit?

To me, however--that sounds yummy. Tina--one question--you don't "make up" the cake mix first--right? You mix the melted butter and the dry cake mix together? this is very similar to a recipe that I got from the Inn on Mt. Ada on Catalina--and thinking back I think instead of pineapple you used a can of pitted cherries. And you don't drain the pineapple, right? (and you could also use other Pie fillings too). I also added a cup of pecans to mine. Oh gosh--I have to make this for company I'm having next weekend!

I make one similar to yours....

1 can of Comstock Cherry Pie Filling
1 can chunk Pineapple
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 cube Butter


Drain pineapple, then mix with cherry pie filling and put in the bottom of a baking dish. Sprinkle dry cake mix over the top of the fruit. Melt butter and drizzle over the top of the cake mix. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.


You can swap out the cherry pie filling and pineapple for two cans of peach pie filing or two cans of apple pie filing. And since I don't do pineapple, sometimes its two cans of cherry instead. I also sometimes toss a little rum into the mix.

Right--just mix the dry mix with the melted butter.
I don't drain the pineapple--too much work! It you don't like pineapple, jsut use 2 cans of the cherry pie filling.
And sure, you can use any pie filling you want, it's fine with me!

I'll try to find my grandmother's peach cobbler recipe. :)

Oh, darn. I don't have a printer right now! Will save this thread and print it at UPS after a few pages.

Pecans? Rum? This could be one interesting cobbler...especially if we mix the pecans and rum together. :thumbsup2

A question: instead of using pie filling, would fresh peaches, apples or blueberries work as well?

Yeah, you would just need to "cook" them like you normally would when making a filing. On the stovetop with sugar etc. But doing it with fresh fruit takes away the super easiness of it.

Shoot...I'd hate to take the super easiness out...

Will have to ponder this situation a bit now ;) ....after all, haven't baked a real homemade pie in about 100 yrs, so it must be super easy...but sort of healthy or no one around here will eat it (except me since I add powdered sugar to nearly everything. Sooo good. :thumbsup2)

How about using frozen fruit???

This is all very similar to mine, but we use rhubarb and whatever other fruit we want...

In a 13 X 9 pan spread rhubarb and fruit of choice to cover bottom. Spinkle on a package of powdered jello...flavor of choice. Spread 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar or sugar substitute over top and then put 1/2 box yellow cake mix over top of that. Drizzle on 1 cube margarine or 1/2 -1 cup water. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.


Anyway, I usually substitue the sugar and the butter to make it a little better for the waistline, but either way is yummy...my fave is with raspberries but you can use anything, peaches, plums, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, you name it...don't know how it would do with apples though...I have never tried it.

Same with peach cobbler. I tend to like rolled out dough cobbler, verses the crumble kind.

Anybody out there have anything like that?

I will get the recipe once I get home. It wasn't too hard at all. The crust recipe makes 4 crusts so you just freeze the ones you don't use for later. I had a difficult time figuring out how to roll the crust evenly and in a circle, but besides that it wasn't bad at all and it tasted great! The most important part was putting the foil around the edge before putting it in the oven and making sure to put it on the bottom rack.

I updated my cobbler post on the first page with with length of time to cook.

I've got one but it isn't traditional and doesn't have a bottom crust.

Dump Cake is where you just basically dump everything in the pan, mix and bake. It's very easy but I'm not much of a fan of dump cake. lol

Thanks!

I really am a good cook, if I had the time. But baking...you should see how flat my cookies turn out!!!! :rotfl2:

Do you flatten them when you put them on the cookie sheet? If so don't do that and they should be ok, if not then maybe try cooking at a slightly lower temp or time, sometimes if cookies are in too long they will just flatten out.

My recipe uses FRESH fruit not canned (yuck) or frozen, but you can use frozen if you need to. I prep my fresh fruit simply by slicing it and adding some sugar and cinnamon depending on the fruit, if it's berries like strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc etc I just add sugar and let them sit, they soak up the sugar and make their own juice and it doesn't take that long at all. If it's harder fruits like apples, pears (we have a pear tree out back), peaches etc etc then I add sugar and cinnamon and let them sit. My recipes are very very easy, unfortunately I don't have the measurements here so I'll edit this when I get home.

Oh ya, if I do use frozen fruit I add the same sugar or sugar/cinnamon as I indicated above and just let them thaw like, the only one I don't do that with is strawberries.

I love peach cobbler. Love love love. My gramma has always made it this way, and calls it a "cuppa cuppa cuppa" recipe :)

1 cup butter, melted in glass casserole dish
mix together 1 cup milk and 1 cup self rising flour, and pour that in the dish, in the melted butter (don't stir it!)
then pour in a big can of peaches (however much you like), don't drain the peaches, either!
you can also add cinnamon or nutmeg or whatever you like

then you just bake it till it is a little brown on the top. I don't remember what temperature, though...I think like 350? Oh, it is so good. Especially with vanilla ice cream! :9

Oh, now I'm hungry.

have you checked your baking soda/powder lately? If you've had it for a long time it can lose it's effectiveness and cause flat baked goods . . . .

I know you were talking about cobbler but my girlfriend sent me this and I love it. It's easy. Great fix during that time when you are having chocolate withdrawal. So I thought I'd share this. I am subscribing to this thread.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix
thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any
time of the day or night!

The one I posted you can do with apples.

2 cans apple pie filling

1 stick of butter


Put the apple filing in the bottom of baking dish. Sprinkle the dry cake mix on top. Melt butter and pour over the cake mix. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour.

Okay, here's my grandma's recipe for apple cobbler or rubbarb cobbler. It's a crumble one, not a crust one but it's really easy and it uses fresh fruit!

4 cups sliced apples (4-6 med. apples)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar (use more or less depending on how tart the apples are and how sweet you like it)

Mix apples, lemon juice and sugar together in a bowl. Put mixture in greased shallow baking dish.

** for rhubarb cut up 4 cups of rhubarb into 1 inch pieces and mix in a bowl with 2/3 cup sugar **

Topping:
1/3 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup melted margarine

Mix topping ingredients together until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over top of apples (or rhubarb) and bake at 375 degrees about 30 minutes or until tender when poked with a fork.

That recipe is what I've always called Dump Cake. A warning to anyone trying to substitute fresh fruit: you'll need to make a simple syrup to go with the fruit! The cake mix absorbs the moisture from the pie filling and pineapple and that, with the butter, is what makes it set up into a crust. Without the extra moisture you'll just get powdered cake mix on top of fruit!

My cobbler recipe calls for mixing the cake mix with 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of quick cook oats, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and a melted cup of butter. Mix altogether and spoon over the fruit filling.

It's close to the same, but doesn't rely so much on the fruit goo to give it it's moisture!

I used to do a cobbler type of recipe, I just used a yellow cake mix, 1 stick of butter and fruit. Put the fruit in the bottom of your pan, cut the butter into the cake mix and pour it on top of the fruit, bake it up and that's it. This was my ex's recipe and he did use canned fruit, probably because the cake mix sucked up the moisture. lol

I totally forgot about that one until the PP mentioned the cake mix sucking up the moisture. LOL

I am glad I get 2 whole days off...at least that's the plan so far...they could always call me in on my day off. Ugg. As I am trying to lose weight I will not be making any kind of cobbler or pie until fathers day which is only about a month away. Hope you all are having fun baking.

Lemon Squares

1 Lemon Cake Mix
1 egg
3 T veg oil.
Mix above with fork until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup.
Press rest of mixture into square baking pan. Bake in 350 oven for 15 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, beat well 8 oz cream cheese, 1 egg, 1/3 cup sugar and juice of 2 lemons. Pour mixture on top of baked dish and sprinkle reserved batter on top of cheese. Bake an additional 15 minutes.
Chill before serving.

Today I made three different batches, each with a different fruit pressed into the cheese mixture before serving. I did blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. I think the raspberries were the best.

Haven't read through all the replies but this is my all time favorite dessert and just made it a couple days ago!

1/2 cup melted butter
1 can (16oz) canned peach slices, undrained
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat over to 400F

Melt butter in a microwavable dish; pour in to 13x9 baking pan; spread into each corner. Spread peaches with juice evenly on top of butter; set aside.

Thoroughly combine sugar, flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl. Stir in milk and vanilla. Spread mixture on top of peaches and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Side note: When I have them fresh or frozen, I usually add 1 cup of blueberries with the peaches

This tastes so yummy!

I used fresh fruit and lemon cake for all. I think chocolate cake with strawberries would be awesome, and I think I may just steal your idea! If you do it that way, I would just omit the lemon juice in the filling and maybe you a bit of vanilla.

I know I'm a little slow, I just saw this thread and thought I'd add my 2 cents.
2 cans Pie filling.
mix 1 cake mix (I use Yellow) with 1 softened cube of butter.
Spread on top of filling.
I don't cook, but this is so easy how can I pass it up. The neighbors love it!
I've made a cherry cobbler, & a Peach Cobbler before. Hope it's not to late.:thumbsup2

This is all very similar to mine, but we use rhubarb and whatever other fruit we want...

In a 13 X 9 pan spread rhubarb and fruit of choice to cover bottom. Spinkle on a package of powdered jello...flavor of choice. Spread 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar or sugar substitute over top and then put 1/2 box yellow cake mix over top of that. Drizzle on 1 cube margarine or 1/2 -1 cup water. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.


Anyway, I usually substitue the sugar and the butter to make it a little better for the waistline, but either way is yummy...my fave is with raspberries but you can use anything, peaches, plums, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, you name it...don't know how it would do with apples though...I have never tried it.

I'm glad I found this thread. I'm going to try this recipe using sliced peaches and pears.

I think it will be fine! I had a whole bag of pears & apples that have gone uneaten. I've put it together just now. I made it a little different from your recipe, because I wanted some crunch. I put the fruit on the bottom, then in a bowl I chopped pecans and cranraisins together, then I added about 1/4 c. of brown sugar and about 1/4 cup of water. Blended them and topped the fruit with it.

Then I put a box of vanilla flavored Jello over that. I went a little crazy on the crunch factor. :upsidedow I added some granola on top of that. It has dried raspberries, coconut, strawberries and almonds in it.

Lastly I put the cake mix on top of all of that and put some lite margarine pats here and there on top. Not too much different than your recipe, Sarah. :) I'll let you know how it turns out!

I have made the basic dump caken described in other posts (dry cake mix over pie filling and butter drizzled on top). I mix up the cake flavors with different pie fillings. Cherry pie filling with devil food cake mix is good. Spice cake mix with apple or peaches is another favorite. Blueberry and strawberry works well with white, yellow or butter cake mixes.
