Shortcut Triple Berry Cobbler

You’ve seen all those recipes about dump cakes, right?

They’ve been popular for years, yet I’ve never made a single one. Not. One. That is, until now. Well, sort of.

This cobbler is very similar to a dump cake. It uses frozen berries (a triple berry mix with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries!) and yellow cake mix. Add just a few other ingredients and you’ve got yourself a simple cobbler.

I did make one mistake, though: make sure to mix the cake mix with the melted butter, don’t just pour it on top. This will help the “cobbler” portion of the dish set up better, and you won’t be left with clumps of powdery cake mix.

I also recommend setting your oven to broil for a few minutes after the cooking time is up to help get that topping nice and toasty.

I also highly recommend topping your cobbler with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Honestly, that’s the only way to eat cobbler!
