This recipe truly can’t get any easier. So whether you forgot you’re attending a party in two hours, or you just want to curl up on the couch with some comfort food all to yourself – this cobbler is a snap to make and utterly sinful to eat.
2 cans Oregon Fruit Products Dark Sweet Cherries (do not drain, you will use the juice)
1 box plain white or yellow cake mix (vanilla flavored is okay)
1 stick butter
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. You’ll be cooking to the boxed cake’s specifications which is *normally* 350 degrees for 30 mins. In the photo above, we cooked our cobbler in a deep pie dish, but a 9×13 pan is far better, either will do with a teensy adjustment. We’ll get there in a minute.
For the 9×13 Pan: Pour in both cans of cherries and juice. Sprinkle entire cake packet over the top evenly. Cut the stick of butter into even “pats” and then lay across the top of the cake mixture (space them out, they will melt together to make the crust). Now bake!
For the Pie Dish: Three changes to the above directions – retain 1/4 cup of the juice (or more if you are using a smaller pie pan); sprinkle ~ 1/2 the cake mix on the top, or just enough to cover evenly so you don’t see the cherry liquid below it; use only 1/2-3/4 of the butter stick to cut into pats and place on the cake mixture. Now bake!
And that’s really it, well, that and making sure you’ve got some ice cold milk, or hot coffee to go with this yummy indulgence. It’s sooo good warm. 🙂
Should you want to make this for a romantic evening or even an intimate dinner party, here’s another idea how to bake – adjust ingredients accordingly:
