Easy 3-Step Mixed Berry Cobbler Recipe

 

 Easy 3-Step Mixed Berry Cobbler

 

I am a huge fan of cobbler but I’m always a huge fan of easy and the two don’t always go hand in hand. When I saw a recipe similar to the one I am sharing today in a magazine I knew I wanted to try it. Of course, I didn’t have a pen so I couldn’t write the recipe down but I figured I could recreate it easy enough. This turned out so yummy! The original recipe called for frozen cherries but I used frozen mixed berries instead. I highly recommend this recipe!

 

 
 
Ingredients:

2 bags (12oz each) frozen mixed berries
1 box white cake mix (with no pudding in mix)
12 ounces Sprite or 7-Up

 

 

Dump bags of frozen berries in the bottom of a baking dish. I would recommend using a 13×9 baking dish. Mine was slightly smaller than that and it took longer to cook.

 

 

Spread dry cake mix over top of the berries. Break up any large clumps.

 

 

Pour the soda slowly over top of the cake mix. Do not stir or mix. The cake mix is what will form the crust.

 

 

Allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes.

 

 

Bake at 350. If you are using a 13×9 pan then bake for 45-50 minutes until the crust is golden brown. As I mentioned, I used a smaller sized baking dish and ended up having to bake it for 1 hour 15 minutes.

 

 

Look how good that looks! But you know what makes it even better?

 

 

Creamy vanilla ice cream!! Oh yeah. I said it! This recipe would be just as scrumptious made with peaches or blueberries.

 

UPDATE: I’m getting some comments saying they have encountered some dry cake mix clumps after cooking. I had one small spot of dry cake mix clumping when I made this the first time but I just scooped it out. I made it several times after and after some trial and error I figured out that you have to make sure the Sprite or 7-up covers all the cake mix. If there is any dry cake mix when you put it in the oven to bake- it will still be dry when it comes out. I poured the soda over top and swirled the bowl around a little bit to make sure the soda covered completely. Then I took a spoon and pushed any remaining dry clumps underneath the soda. Also make sure you have broken up any clumps of cake mix before you pour the soda over top. I hope that helps.

    I tried this yesterday. The weirdest thing is the kids and the teenagers and young adults in my family loved it, the adults didn’t think it was sweet enough. I liked it a lot once it cooled down.

  • MissMe

    I have never baked any cobbler without butter. Is this bland?

  • Brandi Kaye Anderson

    If you add 1tbs cornstarch and 2tbs sugar to the fruit before you follow the other steps it should thicken up:) Great Post!!! Love it:)

    • MissMe

      That is a great tip. The berries weren’t very sweet.

  • Racko382

    I mixed the cake mix and soda together, poured it over the berries…VOILA!!! no lumps, turned out great!

  • Randy Morris

    I ended stirring it all together, instead of letting the Sprite sit on top as suggested. I also used a ton of blueberries. I baked for 50 mins @350. It turned out fantastic, if you like a completely purple cobbler. The cake mix that was underneath the top crust, had made a wonderful blueberry filling from the juice that comes from the berries. It actually had the consistency of your typical fruit cobbler. It may not be pretty, but wow, delicious!!!

    • Completely purple cobbler sounds delicious to me! I’m going to make this again this week and I’ll try stirring it together this time. Thanks!

      • Randy Morris

        No problem, I also made another with raspberries, and yellow confetti cake mix. It was even better!

  • Karen Orr

    This sounds super yummy. One thought, when I have made other dump cakes, I put the box of dry mix in my sifter and sift it on. No dry clumps, for sure. This may be my other dessert to bake for a luncheon.

    My daughter & I have Deliac Disease & must adhere to a gluten free diet. Saw this & had to try it immediately. We had a GF cake mix on hand, but no soda. Happened to have fresh pressed apple cider so used that. Gluten free “treats”, even made from scratch (labor intensive & expensive) usually leave you disappointed. This recipe turned that frown upside down! Even with dry & crumbly GF cake mix, this turned out AMAZING.

    I did do some VERY slight poking & spooned some cider in the dry/clumpy spots before putting it in the oven & it worked perfectly. I’m making it with the soda right now for our daughter to take to a friend who is also GF due to autism. This recipe will seriously brighten our long & usually bland & “fruitless” winter. THANK SO MUCH YOU FOR SHARING THIS!!

  • Kathy

    Baked this today. Also have the clumps of dry cake mix. Suggestions for what to do about it?

  • Realtor_Debbie

    I wish I could print the recipe. Am I missing something?

  • KitM

    I cook for my husband and myself & this recipe makes too much for us, so I bought the Jiffy cake mix and used only one package of fruit and 6 oz. of 7-up. We love it with ice cream, and eat it all in two sittings. Just the right size for two.

    I’m trying this with fresh berries not frozen. I will see how it turns out.

  • Anonymous

    I want to try this easy cobbler but are the frozen berries real juicy or do the berries thicken up?

    • Ann

      I had that problem. To much juice. Tasted really good, but to much juice. Don’t know how to fix that.

      • Brandi Kaye Anderson

        Add cornstarch 1-2 tbs to the fruit before everything else 🙂 when I add cornstarch I add a spoon of sugar to counter the taste. Hope that helps:)

  • I made this tonight with the mixed berries shown above and 1 can regular sprite. As someone stated there were pockets of uncooked cake mix, is it supposed to be like that? I didn’t stir at all… hmmm.. I’ll definitely try again, I want to try with diet pop, just didn’t have any on hand this time. I like the post with other ideas!! 🙂 So creative.

    Despite the uncooked pockets my husband and son ate this right up!! Served it with a dollop of cinnamon cool whip, yummy.

    I would like to know if the cake pan needs to be greased prior to adding ingredients…

    Thank you

  • Anonymous

    what happens if you use cake mix with pudding in it???all I have

  • Anonymous

    do you put it in the frig?

  • Anonymous

    I did this exactly as you said. Did NOT work! The finished product had numerous pockets of cake batter. I think the only way to serve it will be to spread Cool Whip on top!

  • This is great. Two requirements for me to bake…must taste good, must be FAST! This meets the bill. Thanks .. Linda

  • is it full sugar soda or diet??

    • I used regular soda. My sister used diet soda when she made it and her cobbler cooked faster than mine so you might want to keep that in mind.

  • Your recipes look so good, but I don’t cook just for myself anymore and I honesty have always been a recipe cook, so I am asking: how would you make this with peaches? 24 ounces of frozen peaches or canned? For the apple would it be canned or fresh, and can you cook melon and it turn our all right? And,I laughed my butt off over Unknown’s post!
    I am making this for my next senior dinner at church. Finally something homemade!

  • Wow, what an easy dessert. Must give this a try. Thanks for sharing at wow.

  • I think I’m gaining weight and I blame you! I’m not a cook, baker, mixer, or anything good in the kitchen. Until recently I was known as “the mom who lets the neighbors know she’s cooking by setting off the fire alarm.” Before we moved (about a month ago) I only attempted to “cook” once or twice a month which usually resulted in the fire alarm going off and someone in my house asking if they need to call the fire department…again. Desserts were NEVER cooked…Ice cream was served. You want a cake, I’ll buy it. Something special? You better butter up your BFF’s mom because this one can’t do it. THEN we moved. We NEED to save money…can’t eat out 7 nights a week. I figured I would for sure start to loose weight. So to treat my family for having to put up with my attempts at cooking (which I must say is improving…at least I haven’t meet my new fire department, so that must mean I’m improving right?) I have chosen to make at least one homemade dessert a week. So I started off with your posts because I have drooled over your photos and recipes for a while knowing I could never achieve them….guess what? I have achieved them…my taste buds, hubby, and kids have loved every dessert you posted that I have made. They see me on your blog and ask what dessert I’m making this week…you’re worst then Pintrest for me. Pintrest I laugh, I pin, I keep pinning till I have to go to bed…I come here I laugh, write down recipes, make said recipe, my family is happy with something finally yummy to eat, and I apparently gain weight. Just thought I should let you know. My weight gain has nothing to do with my lack of enthusiasm to work out, my choice to not cut calories in other areas, or anything else to do with ME…it’s all YOU! Oh and thanks for making me a better Mom & wife. The family loves the homemade desserts and although they usually only last 2 nights they are the highlight of the week! So please keep them coming and I’ll just have to start finding a reason to run up and down my stairs more often 

    • Hahahahaha! Yep, I’m gaining weight from my own creations. Matt joked that I’m going to have to start a whole dieting/Weight Watchers section on the blog. He will pay for that. Oh yes. He will.

  • I love that this is so simple! We love cobbler and this is SO easy and could be used with nearly any fruit!

    I would love it if you would share this post on the Creative @ Home Wednesday Link-Up! I really think my readers will enjoy it!

  • That looks delish!

  • Just did this with 7-up, white cake mix and strawberries. While it was baking, we thought up other combinations: cherries, devil’s food, and cherry coke; blueberries, yellow cake, and cream soda; melon, lemon cake, and orange soda; apples, spice cake, and ginger ale.

  • Omg!! So easy and so good looking! Thank you! I have a couple of friends who keep asking me if I’ve found new recipes to try – I’ll definitely be sharing this one. Love it!
