Comfort food makes me insanely happy and reminds me of my childhood.
I've always been a huge fan of cobblers, particularly cherry cobbler. It's my absolute favourite.
I hope you love this easy cherry cobbler recipe as much as we did!
- Cherry Pie Filling - Use any brand of cherry pie filling you like. You can make your own filling with fresh cherries, sugar and lemon juice. If you make your own filling be sure to add a tablespoon of cornstarch to help thicken the cobbler base before adding the dough to the top.
- Cinnamon - This adds a ton of flavour and cinnamon pairs really well with cherries and chocolate.
- Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix - Use any brand you prefer. Since this was a quick and easy recipe we opted for a mix instead of the traditional homemade flour mixture you typically use on top of cobbler.
- Milk - Use whatever kind of milk you have on hand. I used 2% because it's what we always have on hand. You could also use almond milk or oat milk.
- Alternate Flavours - Blueberries, apples, peaches or raspberries would be great instead of cherries. You could easily add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or almond extract if you like. Adding nutmeg will enhance the taste as well.
- Alternate Dough Options - Feel free to use store bought biscuits instead of muffin mix. They work great as cobbler topping.
- Toppings - Feel free to add ice cream over top of the cobbler before serving. You can also add one or two tablespoons of fresh whipped cream over top.
How to Make 4 Ingredient Cherry Cobbler:
- Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F.
- You can use a cast iron skillet or a baking dish for this recipe. Spray whichever one you choose with nonstick spray. Alternately, you can use butter to grease the pans if you prefer.
- Pour the cherry pie filling into the cast iron skillet or baking dish. Add a little cinnamon.
- In a bowl, combine the muffin mix, milk and a little cinnamon. Stir well, then randomly drop spoonfuls of the batter over top of the cherry portion.
- Sprinkle a little more cinnamon over top of the topping.
- Place the skillet or baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
- Carefully remove the cobbler from the oven. You can allow it to cool or serve it warm, your preference.
- Slice and serve in a bowl or on a plate.
- Feel free to add a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream over top before serving.
How to Reheat Cobbler:
My preferred method is to microwave it. Add a little bit of water to bowl before reheating.
You can also reheat it in the oven. Cover the pan with aluminum foil first, then bake for about 10 to 15 minutes.
How to Store Cobbler:
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap, or aluminum foil. Or you can transfer leftovers to an airtight container.
Leftover cobbler can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
Can you Freeze Cobbler:
Absolutely! Cobbler freezes really well.
Leftover cobbler can be frozen for up to 3 months.
I highly recommend making an extra batch to freeze every time you make one. If you're already baking making an extra one is super easy.
