“It’s Cobbler-tastic!”. That was what N said after he was finishing his first of two bowls this evening. I have to admit it was pretty tasty.
A couple of weeks ago my mom mentioned that you could make cobbler by using a cake mix. I immediately thought of our favorite allergen-free Cherrybrook Kitchen Yellow Cake mix that was in the cabinet, and almost expired. An almost expired cake mix is the only excuse I need to make a cobbler! So, I searched on Pinterest for a few minutes and found a cake mix cobbler recipe and pulled out my ingredients. It ended up just being a guide and I didn’t follow that recipe at all, really. Here’s my version:
1 dry yellow cake mix (I used Cherrybrook Kitchen Yellow Cake)
1/2 cup dairy free margarine, melted (I use Earth Balance Dairy and Soy Free)
a can of peaches in light syrup (next time I’m using two cans)
1 tsp. cinnamon (I actually didn’t put this in once I added blueberries on a whim. Add cinnamon if you’re just doing peaches)
one cup of fresh blueberries
**Remember to read all labels carefully, making sure this recipe fits your allergy needs.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish. Pour in 2 cans of peaches, juice and all. Put the blueberries on top of the peaches and mix them a little to incorporate it all. Now is the time to add the cinnamon if you’re going to. I actually forgot it, and it was for the best since I added the blueberries.
Next, add the cake mix by sprinkling it evening over the peaches and blueberries. Smooth it out a little better than I did here in the picture.
The next step is to pour the melted margarine over the cake mix. Below is what mine looked like before I stuck it in the oven. I would have mixed up the margarine and the cake mix a little more because I had a couple of dry patches once I brought it out of the oven. No biggie, though, and definitely didn’t affect the yum factor
Bake at 350 degree F for 30-40 minutes, or until done. It’ll look like this, but without the dry patches, hopefully.
And now you’re ready to scoop some up for a summer treat. I think it’d look prettier if it had a dollop of Rice Dream on top
I’m thinking that next time I’m going to make a mixed berry cobbler with raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries….what do you think, sound good?
