Cinnamon Cherry Crockpot Cobbler : Only 5 Ingredients and 5 Minutes of Prep!

Every Tuesday night, my mother in law cooks supper for the whole family. We call it “Tuesday at Bubbe’s”. If only that lady knew what a treat it is for me to have a night away from the kitchen!! (Plus we all enjoy our family time.)

Not too long ago, she made this Cherry Cobbler for dessert and I had to have the recipe. I love cherry desserts, especially one as yummy and warm and comforting as this one. (Have we mentioned how easy this recipe is?)

First step, dump cherry pie filling into your crockpot.

Then, dump a dry yellow cake mix on top of the cherries. Next, sprinkle with just a little oatmeal. (We used the old-fashioned quick cook type.) The oats gives the Cinnamon Cherry Crockpot Cobbler a little crumbly texture on top.

Ok, here comes the hard part.  Melt some salted butter and stir in the cinnamon. (Cherries and cinnamon are such a wonderful flavor combination!) Pour the cinnamon butter all over the top of the cake and cherry filling.

Do not stir! (This is an easy dessert remember?)

Serve this cherry cobbler warm with vanilla ice cream! This dessert is so comforting…tart and sweet cherries, all buttery and cinnamon-y, with ooey-gooey vanilla cake.

    What is the size of the crockpot pictured? I’m using my 6-qt for hot chocolate so that only leaves my 3-quart (at least I think it is 3). I know the ingredients will fit, but I don’t know if cooking time will need to be adjusted.

    I used a five quart, so you may want to cook it a little longer Please let me know how it turns out.

    So I made this today at work in my 3-quart. Everything did fit fine. I was worried because the cake mix layer just seemed so thick. At my coworker’s suggestion, after I added everything, I took a fork and stabbed down multiple times I guess “vent” it for lack of a better word. This way, it pushed some mix down and some cherry up. I accidentally only had it on Warm for the first 45 minutes (duh!) so I then turned it to High since our lunch was coming on fast. I left it there for about 1.5 hours at which time it was looking getting to that golden brown color and the cherry filling was upwelling through the fork marks so I then turned it to Low for the remainder (another 1.5 – 2 hours). It was perfect (at least my portion). Don’t know if “venting” it helped at all, but it didn’t hurt. I used a spoon to pull back the edges all around and it seemed like it had cooked through so it was a success and super delicious! Thanks!

      That’s great! Good to know it works in a smaller size slow cooker. Glad you tried it and enjoyed it.

    Made this in my 6.5 quart crockpot. Worked great, no cooking time adjustment needed. Oddly, I rarely need cooking time adjustments for any recipe. I am considering making this recipe with peach pie filling.

      Awesome, I am glad you enjoyed it. Crockpots can be a little tricky, especially the larger ones because they cook so hot. Great idea on the peaches. (Can’t wait to try it with some fresh fruit this spring, too. Blueberries maybe?)

      That is a great idea, using a Spice Cake mix. Sounds yummy with the apple pie filling. Can’t wait to hear how it turns out. You may have to adjust the time based on how your slow cooker cooks (mine is a little hot), or the size.
