    Next, you want to gently massage the cake mix in the bag, to make sure if there are any clumps it gets broken up. Then sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the frozen fruit.

    Can You Use Different Fruit For Your Cake Mix Cobbler 

    Yes! You are welcome to use any fruit you have on hand. Peaches, raspberries, apples, strawberries, blueberries, and any other fruit really would work. I am planning to make a peach cake mix cobbler and adding a dusting of cinnamon on top.

    Does Cake Mix Cobbler Need Refrigerated

    Because of the fruit in the cobbler, I do toss mine in the fridge once we are finished with serving. This way it will last longer, and you can always toss it in the microwave to warm it up. I like the way it tastes chilled, but it is all about what preference you have.

    Light and Sweet Cake Mix Cobbler 

    The bubbles from the lemon-lime soda will add a nice and light texture to the cobbler. If you have never baked with pop, you need to try it. You will get a magical turnout, that can’t be beaten.

    I have made biscuits with soda, and it gives a light an airy texture as well. As it bakes it keeps your dish moist, and that is why I think you all need to try this cobbler.

    What Other Brands Of Pop Can You Use For Cake Mix Cobbler 

    Reach for a clear pop like Sprite, 7Up, or even Ginger Ale for cake mix cobbler. You want the bubbles and moisture, but you don’t want a dark soda to add in flavor to your cobbler. If you use something like a Pepsi, it will change the color of your cobbler, but also affect the taste which you don’t want. 

    Can You Use Fresh Fruit in Cake Mix Cobbler 

    You can use fresh fruit when making a cake mix cobbler. You can clean and slice up some fresh fruit or rinse and toss in from fresh berries. You do not have to use frozen fruit if you prefer fresh. Both bake up nicely in this cobbler recipe. 

    I do recommend if your fruit doesn’t have a lot of sweetness on its own to lightly sprinkle with a little sugar to add a little sweetness to it, so you don’t bite into tart fruit.

    Give this delicious cake mix cobbler a try. Play around with flavors of cake mix, types of fruit and find a combination that fits your taste buds exactly. I love a good mixed berries cobbler, but I also can’t say no to the classic peach.

    The most simple fruit cobbler recipe ever – Cake Mix Cobbler! It’s made with only three ingredients – cake mix, frozen fruit and pop!


    • 2 ½ cups mixed frozen berries or any other type of frozen fruit you like
    • 2 to 2 ½ cups Sprite or other clear pop
    • 1 box white cake mix


    • Preheat oven to 350°F.
    • Spread frozen fruit in a 9×13 baking pan.
    • Sprinkle cake mix evenly over top of fruit. Tip: Gently massage the cake mix while still in the bag to break up any lumps.
    • Pour 2 cups Sprite evenly over top of cake mix to cover. Tilt pan back and forth to help cover the dry cake mix. Add more Sprite (½ cup or more) if you notice some dry spots. Adding too much Sprite may create too much liquid on the bottom so be aware of that.
    • Bake for 45 minutes or until the berries are cooked and the top is browned. Let cool about 5 minutes before serving. Top with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

    1. Such a disappointing result. Liquid fruit juice on the bottom, a few areas of cake mix that stayed powdery. More of a thin cracker topping.

    2. John Szympruch says:

      Frozen local raspberries were used. Sugar was sprinkled over the tart frozen raspberries.
      Ginger ale was poured over the yellow cake mix. Results was very good. The next time blueberries will be used

      1. I layered the cake mix and soda alternating the 2 ending with soda…..it helps, not always perfect but never had cracker crust or fruit juice on the bottom. Sometimes there might be a little extra juice but it depends on how much ice is formed on the fruit. I try to defrost it at least 1/2 way before preparing. Hopefully this is helpful but giving it my best shot!! Good luck

    3. Why not mix the cake and sprite together before placing it on the fruit? That would eliminate the “dry spots.”

      1. Yes. I agree. The cake mix needs to be mixed with wet ingredients. I use the water ( or milk) and oil (or water) called for on the box. You don’t need to use eggs to make a cake mix.

    4. I had same issues as Bonnie. Lots of spots where the mix didn’t bake and what did bake was thin, not cobbler-like

    5. I made a recipe similar to this, and the directions said that if there were any dry spots after baking to spray the spots with Pam (any brand will do) and bake 5 minutes longer. It worked!

    6. This turned out amazingly well! I had a mix of fresh berries(whole raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cut strawberries) in a ziplock bag, and wanted to do something with them before they went bad. Found this recipe. Sprinkled just a little cornstarch in the bottom of pan after spraying with non-stick, as there was a good bit of juice in the bag. Then dumped in the bag of berries, and sprinkled just a bit of brown sugar, as we don’t drink soda, and was using a can of ginger-lime seltzer. I then covered the berries with a french vanilla cake mix, and then poured the seltzer over, no stirring. After 45 mins at 350, i cut up a half-stick of butter to put on top, as it was looking dry but not quite browned. After another 15 mins—voila! A perfect berry cobbler, which my family ate up in less than 24 hours.

    7. i too had watery fruit juice at bottom and cracker crust with some cake mic still not dissolved. i have been baking for over 45 yrs and rarely had such poor results. i will stick to the old fashioned way of using butter. i dont want to drink my cobbler or dip the cracker crust in. i have never given an opinion before on a recipe, but with food expensive as is now, dont waste your food or time.

    8. Arlene Mccormack says:

      I made it with blackberries fresh, frozen blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, mix sprinkled o top of fruit, slice butter on top of fruit the massaged cake mix, then buttery spray cake mix, then soda on top.. came out perfect.. was all gone at potluck dinner.. will be using this again.. easiest cobbler I ever made.

    9. It reminds me of the dry cake mix I used to eat as a kid. I’m glad I tried it.. otherwise, MEH.

    10. Erma A Christian says:

      The result was not what I expected. The fruit was flavorful, but the cake mix was still powder. I thought the soda and juice from the fruit might mix with the cake mix and create a batter, but that did not happen. My family was not pleased.
