Berry-Cake Cobbler

When our children were young, they could hardly wait to pick the berries, so that a berry cobbler could be made….and eaten. Naturally, variation is the spice of life, so I had on hand several cobbler recipes. This recipe was given to me by my friend Janice Richards Smith who knew how much kids would love this dessert. This cobbler is quick to make and it is usually devoured immediately. This berry cobbler can be dressed up with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. It is best served hot, so I prefer to begin cooking it just before we sit down to dinner. Then it is ready to eat at the end of our dinner.


BERRIES: raspberries,  blackberries, boysenberries, etc., or a combination of these.
Pick or purchase enough berries to generously fill a 9″ x 13″ pan.
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 box yellow cake mix
3/4 cup melted butter
Optional: vanilla ice cream or whipping cream


Wash berries gently. Drain. Mix the berries, flour, and brown sugar in a bowl. Place the berry mixture into a 9″ x 13″ pan. Spread the berry mixture evenly throughout the pan. Pour the cake mix over the berries, spreading as evenly possible. Drizzle the melted butter over this mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45-50 minutes.
