Apple Cobbler Cake

I wasn’t sure exactly what I should call this. This recipe/idea comes off of Facebook and I noticed that when I took a screen shot of it, I didn’t capture whatever they were calling it. But it was both a cake and a cobbler to me. 

Here is what the recipe/concept is – 

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 box of cake mix
  • 1 can of pie filling (mine was 20 ounces)

Mix it all together and bake in a greased 9×13 pan for 35 minutes. 

That’s it. Pretty simple and, both a cake and a cobbler. A cobbler, to me anyways, is pie filling covered with dry cake mix with pieces of butter scattered on top. That makes it cook up very nice in two layers. And a cake, well, follow the directions on the box but it’s a cake. Pretty standard. This was like both as you used the pie filling and mixed everything up, but didn’t use all the things needed for the cake mix. Just the eggs. 

It comes out a little denser than a typical cake but not as dense as, say, a pound cake. Or brownies. I made it as a dessert but it would work well as a breakfast item. When mixing it up, it took a little bit of work to get all the dry cake mix incorporated. My recommendation is that you need to get all of the syrup and stuff out of the pie filling can (scrape it with a spatula). There isn’t much liquid to mix with the cake mix so every bit helps. 

There was a whole list of suggested pairings (listed below). I chose the butter pecan cake and apple filling as I already had the can of apple filling to use up. 

  • Pineapple cake/blueberry filling
  • Chocolate cake/cherry filling
  • Yellow cake/cherry filling
  • Yellow cake/cherry filling
  • Butter pecan cake/apple filling
  • Yellow cake/apple filling
  • Yellow cake/blackberry filling
  • Strawberry cake/blueberry filling
