Crock pot apple recipes are easily complemented with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. It tastes so good after a roast beef or pork chop and potatoes meal. There is just something about the smell of warm and spicy cobbler made with cake mix, that makes everyone look forward to autumn!

Let’s Make It!
You won’t believe how easy it is to put this together before starting dinner. Begin an hour early and dessert will be ready and waiting right after you eat!
- Empty pie filling into greased slow cooker.
- Pour dry cake mix over the fruit. Sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg on top if you want.
- Top with melted butter and without stirring, go about your business!
It really is that simple, but it’s such a treat. It may sound unusual, but I like to serve it with a small wedge of sharp cheddar cheese on the side, for an afternoon treat with a cup of tea. My Grandpa used to say “Apple pie without cheese, is like a kiss without a squeeze.” We take that corny saying to heart in our home, and usually serve a bit of sharp cheddar cheese with any kind of apple dessert.
Can I Use Other Pie Fillings?
It’s as easy as pie, if you’ll pardon the pun, to switch out apples for any other type of fruit. I love it with tart cherries, blueberries, but especially peach pie fillings. It’s great with rhubarb as well, and if you don’t have the canned filling on hand just pick some fresh rhubarb from the garden (or use frozen) and boil it up on the stovetop with white sugar and water. Dessert is served!
How About Other Cake Mix?
Experiment with different combinations of pie fillings and cake mixes, and dress them up with toppings you like.
- White cake mix – this would work equally as well as a yellow cake mix.
- Spice cake mix – a delicious fall inspired treat!
- Chocolate cake mix – try using a sweet dark cake mix with cherry pie filling. Definitely serve it with whipped cream on top and impress your guests by calling it Red Velvet Cobbler.
How To Store Leftovers
I like to store the leftovers in ready-to-go dessert cups that I can add toppings to later on. Pop a scoop of cobbler into individual ramekins, cover with saran wrap, and store in the fridge. Next day, you can drizzle heavy cream or half and half on top and voila, you’ll have a sweet treat at the ready.
Or, scoop leftovers into an airtight container and freeze. Defrost on the counter and serve slightly cold, or heat in the microwave and serve with ice cream. No matter which way you go, this simple dessert is sure to satisfy.
