Berry Cobbler does not get much easier than this…
This recipe is incredibly easy and seemed unreal, when I saw it on Pinterest and was led here. It uses just 3 ingredients: frozen fruit, cake mix and Sprite Zero soda. Plus, it is not so high in calories as is the usual cobbler!
I used a combo of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries because that is what we like ~ you can use strawberries, peaches, cherries, or any combo you favor. There has been a box of lemon cake mix in my kitchen cabinet for ages, so I used it. The recipe calls for a white cake mix and next time, I will try that.

Here’s what I learned:
The recipe calls for not stirring the cake mix and soda together. I followed that and baked it for 45 minutes. When pulled out of the oven, I saw some of the cake mix laying on top; very dry. I poured about ¼ cup more soda over it in the dry spots, and stirred the surface around a little with a fork, then baked it for another 10 minutes ~ 55 minutes, total baking time.

Some of the reviewers stated that they stirred the cake mix and soda together before baking. The recipe says that stirring it makes a smooth cake-like topping, instead of a crust like cobbler.
The way I made it, turned out crumbly and delicious. It was not runny, like cobblers many times are ~ the consistency was perfect; juicy fruit with a great crust and not too sweet. It has a sweet/tart thing going on, different and delicious!
We really liked this! So easy, peasy and good! I had cool whip on hand, but it would be great with a scoop of ice cream! If you like cobblers, you have to try this!
2 (12 ounce) bags frozen mixed berries
1 box white cake mix (NO PUDDING)----I used lemon
1 can diet 7-up or sierra mist (clear soda)---I used Sprite Zero
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Coat a 9” x 13” baking dish with cooking spray.
Place frozen fruit in baking dish.
Add dry cake mix over the top.
Pour soda SLOWLY over cake mix.
DO NOT stir the cake mix and the pop---this will give you a ‘crust.’ If you stir the two you will have a cake-like topping.
Bake 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
Serve with ice cream, or not.
I will be making this again very soon and will use a white cake mix and frozen cherries, if I’m lucky enough to find them!!!
Pam's note: Update June 23rd: I made it using the white cake mix---it's even better!
