Easiest Crock Pot Fruit Cobbler

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by firealarmqueen

I found this recipe in a Fix-It-And-Forget-It crock pot cookbook. It is extremely forgiving and versatile...not to mention delicious! You'll be amazed at the cobbler-like texture that you can get with boxed cake mix, butter and a crock-pot. I personally prefer yellow cake mix + cherry pie filling + walnuts (as recipe indicates).

This was so very easy to make and went together like a breeze. What a novel idea and it tasted just like fruit cobbler. I used the yellow cake mix and the cherry pie filling.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 12 cup butter (one stick)
  • 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling (I usually use two)
  • 13 cup walnuts (more or less, as you like)


  1. Melt your butter in a microwave-safe container.
  2. Stir in the cake mix until well combined and crumbly.
  3. Dump your pie filling into the crock-pot.
  4. Evenly spread your cake mixture over top.
  5. Sprinkle with nuts (or you can mix your nuts in with the cake).
  6. This can be altered to fit your family's taste (try pecans instead of walnuts, or peach pie filling instead of cherry). Multiple combinations and possibilities.
  7. Cook on HIGH 2 hours or LOW 4 hours. Serve warm, with whipped cream or ice cream.
