This is my family's favorite dessert, whether we are at home or camping! This is especially yummy when served warm with vanilla ice cream. White cake mix works as well as yellow.

The flavor of this cobbler is really good;; however I see a couple of problems with the recipe: 1) I see no need for the foil lining. It can shred and end up on your spoon. Use a prepared deep casserole dish instead; 2) The cooking time says "45 - 90 minutes?" Done times can be deceiving because you're using brown sugar which is golden brown in color. This needs to be fine tuned and more narrowly defined. 3) The cake mix does not get cooked through so you end up with unbaked dry cake mix throughout. Read More

I made this in a 9x13 baking pan. I needed two cans of pie filling to cover the bottom of it. I cut a 1/2 cup of butter into the cake mix along with about a 1/3 cup of brown sugar. I then put another 1/2 cup of butter in pads on top of mixture and topped with a 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Baked for 45 minutes - UNCOVERED (baked it covered once and it was soup). It was rich and delicious. (Hard to go wrong with sugar and butter. =) Read More

I made 2 of these one apple and one cherry! Everyone loved them and they were both gone in 2 days!!! I skipped the aluminum foil because I use Temptations dishes which don't stick. I baked mine in the oven and had no problems about 1 hour cook time. I also used more brown sugar and butter as others have suggested. I will definitely make this again! Read More
