This easy 3 ingredient Crock Pot Apple Cobbler is made in the slow cooker, a trend everyone loves. In no time, you will have sweet and tart apple pie filling all warm, bubbling and covered with a deliciously soft cake like topping, ready for your table.

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!

  1. Empty pie filling into greased slow cooker.
  2. Pour dry cake mix over the fruit. Sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg on top if you want.
  3. 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.

  3. Top the apple pie filling with the dry cake mix.

    Make the Apple or Peach Pie filling….Awesome!

  3. 5 stars
    I tried this with cherries works just as well. you could probably use any caned fruit of your choice.

  4. What size slow cooker?

  5. I wonder if anyone has tried cherry with chocolate cake mix? If not, I may just go for it and let you know.

  6. 1 stick of butter is a 1/2 cup

  7. This is such a simple and amazing recipe! I let it cook a bit longer so the topping was a little more crispy then we added some ice cream on top and it was wonderful!! 🙂

  8. How much is a stick of butter as ours comes in blocks and tubs not sticks
    Thank you

  9. Can u use peaches instead

  10. We make this in a dutch oven in campfire coals. You can also use 1 can crushed pineapple and 1 large can of mandarin oranges, mix in 1 c sugar, top with cake mix, pour butter on top. Also very good.

  11. This sounds wonderful!! My husband is diabetic, so it would be awesome if you could put how many servings you get, and how many grams of carbs per serving. a serving 1 cup, etc. 🙂

  12. this was a great recipes but everone I have try has been great keep posting

  13. I made this in Cherry was a huge hit. I made it again but in Peach, I used everything but added brown sugar sprinkled on before the butter. Cooked it in the oven and it’s was AMAZING! I cooked it in a 9 by 13 pan and it was gone the next day. Excellent receipe

  14. How big is your crockpot?
    I would like to make a smaller portion in a 1.5 quart (and a main dish + a side in the other two of the 3-in-1 I just got!).

  15. Can this be done covered in the oven? Its so simple..sounds tummy. Thanks
