How to Make 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Cherry Cobbler

I used two cans of cherry pie filling (21 ounces each), 1 box of yellow cake mix, and 1 stick of butter.  That’s it.  I chose to use a cherry pie filling that had “simple” ingredients to cut down on the high fructose corn syrup. 

Pour the cherry pie filling into the bottom of your slow cooker.

Add the DRY cake mix to the top of the cherries, in an even layer.  Cut up a stick of butter and place add to the top of the cake mix, in an even layer.  VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT MIX.  

Cover and let cook on high for  2 hours.  You’ll know when it’s done. The cake will be slightly golden brown and the cherries will seep through the cake layer some.  You can also use a toothpick to test for doneness, just as you would with a cake in the oven.

Scoop out and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.

This crock pot blueberry cobbler recipe is surprisingly good, especially for something that’s so easy to prepare! Yellow cake mix is layered with fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries and topped with a thick layer of homemade whipped cream in this easy, no-fuss fruit cobbler dessert.

There’s nothing quite like a warm, gooey blueberry cobbler. This recipe is a family favorite and always gets rave reviews. The best part about this easy dessert recipe is how shockingly delicious it tastes when you’re done. It’s just one of my favorite blueberry dessert recipes.

I love making blueberry cobbler, besides smelling heavenly, I love the color! Plus, it is fun to see how a humble cake mix can be transformed into something so special with just some frozen berries!

We picked 6 pounds of blueberries! Doesn’t look like it, right? We’ve used them in smoothies, pancakes, muffins and this Crock Pot Blueberry Cobbler recipe.

What is a Cobbler?

Blueberry cobbler is a simple dessert that consists of a cake-like crust and a sweet, dense filling made with berries.

I find that the best way to make this recipe is with frozen blueberries. This will allow the dish to cook at a higher temperature without having blueberry juices run out of the pan.

Blueberries are absolute perfection and not just because they’re delicious – their intense color makes them perfect as an ingredient on top of sweet treats like cobblers and pies. I think you will agree this is a simple recipe!

This recipe is super easy and a great way to use fruit. It’s the perfect dessert for summer parties or BBQ’s because I can turn it on a few hours before dessert time. There’s something about having a warm dessert with some cold ice cream on top that really makes you feel at home, no?

Get started by gathering your ingredients before starting on your recipe and then follow these steps below.

Ingredient List

  • 4 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 box uncooked cake mix of your choice
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces


Prepare the inside of your slow cooker, either with non-stick spray or coat it with melted butter. 

There’s no mixing bowl needed, this is just like an easy dump cake recipe.

Start with your fruit layer and then sprinkle the dry cake mix on top. 

Top the dry ingredients with the butter pieces and give it all a good mix.

Top with more blueberries and cook on low for 3-4 hours until your delicious dessert is golden brown on top.

You are going to want to top your Blueberry Cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream! 

Do I need to Refrigerate my Cobbler?

Yes. Because you are using fruit, it is a good idea to refrigerate your room temperature cobbler.

I find the easiest way to do so is to transfer my finished dessert to a casserole dish and then wrap it in plastic wrap. Or you can use an airtight container of your choice.

Do I Need to Thaw my Frozen Fruit When I make a Cobbler?

No need to thaw your frozen fruit when making your crock pot cobbler.

What Kind of Fruit Can I Substitute with?

You can use a variety of different types of fruit. Fresh fruit like fresh peach slices (cake mix peach cobbler recipe), fresh blackberries (blackberry cobbler) and other fresh berries and more.

You can also use a variety of canned fruits to make fruit cobblers. I have used a can of cherry pie filling and blueberry pie mix and a can of peaches.

Can I Use a Different Type of Cake Mix?

Yes! This is the easiest recipe to customize with different cake mixes. I have made this classic dessert with a chocolate cake mix, white cake mix, lemon cake mix, spice and butter pecan cake mix.


  • It is a perfect dessert option for a family get-together, potlucks, or cookouts.
  • You only need a few ingredients.
  • It tastes delicious any time of year.
  • You make it in the slow cooker, so cleanup is a breeze!
  • It is a simple method of making a delicious, classic dessert recipe.


  • Slow Cooker/Crock Pot
  • String Utensil


  • Yellow Cake Mix
  • Sliced Peach in 100% Juice
  • Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg
  • Butter


  1. In a 6-quart slow cooker, add canned peaches with juice. Add in brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gently stir together.
  2. Sprinkle cake mix over peach mixture evenly. Evenly place butter squares over the top of the cake mix.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 2½ to 3 hours.
  4. Serve with vanilla ice cream on top. Enjoy!


This crock pot peach cobbler made with cake mix is best enjoyed fresh, but you can also eat it leftover. If you have any left (which rarely happens at my house), simply transfer it to a sealed container and put it in the fridge. It will last for up to 2 days. You can reheat individual portions in the microwave for 1 and a half minutes, stirring halfway through. If it is not warm enough, stir and continue to heat in 15-second increments.


My favorite way to serve this peach cobbler is with a scoop of ice cream on top. You can also add a little whipped cream and a little bit of salted caramel syrup. It is absolutely delicious!
If you are looking for a dinner recipe to serve before this peach cobbler that will really complement the flavors, try this Slow Cooker Ham with Pineapple & Brown Sugar. The sweetness of the glaze pairs perfectly with the flavors in the peach cobbler.


Do I need to line or spray my slow cooker?

Yes, I always recommend either lining or spraying your slow cooker. This keeps the food from sticking in the corners, which can be difficult to clean. You will thank me later, I promise!

Can I use fresh peaches instead of canned peaches?

For this peach cobbler recipe, you will want to use canned peaches. These are already peeled and have just the right amount of juice in the can to make this cobbler.

Does it matter what brand of cake mix that I use?

Nope! For this recipe, you can use whichever cake mix brand that you prefer. I have used Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker, and even store brands, and they all turned out delicious.

Can I use this same recipe with a fruit other than peaches?

I have only tried it with peaches, but I’m sure that it would be tasty with other canned fruits, as well. If you try something other than peaches in this cobbler, be sure to come back and let me know how it turned out!

Can I use margarine instead of butter?

I strongly recommend using butter, but if margarine is what you have on hand, you can use that instead.
