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?)

Now just close the lid, and cook on low for about three and a half hours. Ok, waiting for the Cherry Cinnamon Crockpot Cobbler is the hardest part. (Cooking times will vary based on the size and temperature of your crockpot. Cobbler is done when the cake is crumbly and cooked through.)
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.
