Simple Apple Cobbler Using a Cake Mix

I remember when I first learned how to make this cobbler.  I was cooking for the ranch and the neighboring cook always made this great apple cobbler.  When I asked, she said that she uses a cake mix, 1 or 2 cans of filling, and a can of sprite or butter.  We made it with sprite and it was great but we liked it with butter better, especially for the days I’d serve ice cream with it.    It’s a very simple recipe and a favorite in the family.  Enjoy!

Recipe: Caramel Apple Cobbler Using a Cake Mix


  • Cake Mix – We prefer a butter, butter pecan or something plain.
  • 2 cans of pie filling – That Caramel Apple is TO DIE FOR!
  • 2 sticks of butter or you can use a can of sprite


  1. Pour filling into bottom of a 8×11 casserole pan. Spray the pan with nonstick spray first.  Pour dry cake mix over filling.  If using the butter, melt butter first and pour on top of cake mix.  If using sprite, pour sprite over cake mix until covered well.  Bake at 350′ for 45-60 minutes.  My oven is horrible and cooking times are so odd which is why I gave such a big time gap there.  Bake until golden brown!

    I make this but I call it “dump cake” and I also make it with cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple together. My husband loves the cherry and pineapple one best because he loves pineapple.
