How do you make a mixed berry cobbler recipe?
To make berry cobbler with cake mix, start by adding the dry cake mix to a mixing bowl. Melt the butter in a separate bowl, and pour the melted butter into the cake mix.
Using a fork, stir the cake mix and butter together in the bowl. As you stir it together, it will create a crumble like texture similar to gravel.
Add the frozen berries to a baking dish. I’m using a baking dish that is approximately 9×10″ – an oval baking dish works well or a 9×9″ square pan will also work.
The berries don’t need to thaw. The berries can still be frozen for this recipe.
Top the frozen berries with the cake mix crumble. It is easiest to use your hands. Evenly distribute the crumble over the top of the berries.
Bake the cobbler until the topping is a light golden brown.
