Looking back over the recipes I have posted, I notice there are very few desserts….probably because we try not to eat many desserts unless we are at a party or going to one! This one would make a great Memorial Day dessert or save it for July 1st or the 4th of July. The colors work well with French vanilla ice cream! It so simple even the kids can make it…
Berry Cobbler * (see below)
Two 12-oz bags frozen mixed berries/peaches
1 box white or yellow cake mix
¼ cup melted butter
Approximately 1 can of diet 7-up or other clear soda (355 ml)- drizzle all over cake mix.
(might need more than 1 can of soda to avoid dry spots)
Place frozen fruit in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Add dry cake mix over the top. Drizzle ¼ cup melted butter over the cake mix. Pour soda slowly over cake mix. DO NOT stir the cake mix and the soda – this will give you a ‘crust’. If you stir the two, you will have a cake like topping.
Bake 350 for 45-50 min or longer until berries are cooked.
* If berries are not your thing, experiment with other fruits such as rhubarb, mango cubes, melon, etc. I am thinking about strawberry and rhubarb? Uhm… wonder what would happen with strawberry and banana and drizzling the finished cake with chocolate syrup aka…banana split???
