Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

WHAT IS CHERRY COBBLER?

A Cherry cobblers is a fruit dessert made with either fresh, canned or frozen cherries and topped with a biscuit pastry topping. As the cobbler cooks, the fruit bubbles up into the pastry giving it a typical appearance and making those delicious little bubbles of wonderfulness.

HOW TO MAKE This Dish FOR A CROWD

This cherry cobbler recipe EASILY multiplies into cobbler for a crowd. In fact, I fed my wedding reception guests this cobbler at my wedding. Simply purchase a larger pan and multiply the cobbler recipe as many times as you like. This is how you can make cherry cobbler for 50 or even 100 people!

How Do You Store Cherry Cobbler? 

To store cherry cobbler, once the cobbler has cooled, cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and seal well. Place the cherry cobbler into the refrigerator. 

How Long Does Cherry Cobbler Last? 

Cherry Cobbler lasts about 5 days in the refrigerator. Do not allow it to sit out for more than 2 hours.

Can Cobbler Be Made Ahead Of Time? 

Yes! Absolutely!

  • Make this cherry cobbler 1-2 days before. 
  • Either go ahead and bake and then warm back up the day of your gathering OR
  • assemble and bake just before serving. 

This cobbler is best when served hot, but is just fine served at room temperature as well.

Can You Freeze Cherry Cobbler? 

You SURE can!  

Simply cover it very well with aluminum foil and then wrap in freezer paper and tape well. Freeze for up to 3 months. 

How Do You Reheat Cherry Cobbler

  • To reheat refrigerated cherry cobbler, simply put the whole baking dish into the refrigerator and heat at 350 for 20 minutes 
  • OR 
  • Reheat the amount you wish to serve on a microwave safe dish in the microwave in 1 minute intervals until heated through.

TIPS AND TRICKS

  • If you are concerned that the cake mix will be too much then you can always use less. I always use the whole thing  but my husband never puts the whole bag in and so, just go with what you feel is right. Just know that a portion of the powdery cake mix will melt down into the cherry pie filling some and a bit will become crusty with the melted butter.
  • As for the butter pieces on the top therefore here is the thing while I always cut the butter and put it on in the most haphazard manner possible. My sweet hubby, the engineer, always places the pats of butter as if they were soldiers lined up across the powdery cake mix tundra and the results are the same. I don’t think it matters a bit.
  • If you forget to spray your 9×13 pan then don’t sweat it because it just means you will have to scrape the sides of your dish a little bit to get all of the cherry stuff out.
  • I use the cherries that I can in the spring. I think they are much more tasty than the store bought version however, but that is just me. It takes 4 1/2 pint jars of home canned cherries for that. If you take a look at the ingredients of store bought cherry pie filling then you might decide to start canning your own too if you use a lot of cherry pie filling during the year . We do at our house (because Cherries = Love, remember).
  • If you want to make a half sized version of this, you can then just use a small baking dish such as a 2 quart size and half the ingredients.
  • All kinds of information about cherries! My goodness!

Ingredients

  • 2 Cans of Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 Cup of Pecan pieces
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Spray the bottom and sides of a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Pour the 2 cans of cherry pie filling into the baking dish and spread out to cover. Sprinkle the pecan pieces over the top.
  • Sprinkle the yellow cake mix over the top of that. Cut the butter into slices and place around the top of the cake mix. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until the filling is bubbling up through the top. Some of the cake mix may still look powdery and that is ok.

Notes

  • If you are concerned that the cake mix will be too much then you can always use less.  I always use the whole thing  but my husband never puts the whole bag in and so, just go with what you feel is right.  Just know that a portion of the powdery cake mix will melt down into the cherry pie filling some and a bit will become crusty with the melted butter.  
  • You can always add more pecans if you really like more OR leave them out entirely if you don't want them in your cobbler.
  • As for the butter pieces on the top therefore here is the thing while I always cut the butter and put it on in the most haphazard manner possible.  My sweet hubby, the engineer, always places the pats of butter as if they were soldiers lined up across the powdery cake mix tundra and the results are the same.  I don’t think it matters a bit.  
  • If you forget to spray your 9x13 pan then don't sweat it because it just means you will have to scrape the sides of your dish a little bit to get all of the cherry stuff out.
