JIFFY SKILLET CHERRY COBBLER
Looking for a quick and delicious dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth? This mouthwatering recipe for Jiffy Cherry Cobbler is just for you! With just two main ingredients—Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix and canned cherry pie filling—you can whip up the most delicious dessert! This easy-to-make cobbler is perfect for those times when you crave a homemade dessert but don’t have hours to spend (or need a bunch of ingredients). The old-school Jiffy cake mix works perfect with this recipe!
TIPS FOR MAKING CHERRY COBBLER:
- This cherry cobbler recipe is ridiculously easy to make. Feel free to change up the pie filling for any one you enjoy: apple pie filling, peach pie filling and blueberry pie filling are all delicious with this recipe.
- If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, just use a 9×9-inch square baking dish.
- Can’t find Jiffy Cake Mix? Just go with a regular yellow cake mix – however, you will only use half of that cake mix for this recipe as the Jiffy cake mixes are only 9 ounces and a normal box of cake mix is 15.25 ounces.
- You can use lower sugar options for the pie filling. I don’t think Jiffy makes a low or zero sugar cake mix so you’d have to go with another brand.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- cherry pie filling – as I stated above, you can go with any flavor pie filling you like. You can also go with low sugar options too.
- almond extract (optional) – I think almond extract goes really well with cherry pie filling but if you can’t find it or you don’t like that flavor then just leave it out.
- butter – I almost always go with salted butter here but if you only have unsalted then just use that.
- Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix – this is probably the cheapest cake mix you’ll find. It’s usually on the very bottom shelf at your grocery store.
- cinnamon (optional) – I like the flavor the ground cinnamon adds but if it’s not your thing, then just leave it out.
HOW TO MAKE THIS JIFFY CHERRY COBBLER:
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a 10-inch skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the cans of pie filling into the bottom of the skillet. Stir in the almond extract, if using. In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix, melted butter, and cinnamon. Drop the batter by dollops on top of the filling. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the batter is set. Serve warm.

- 2 (21 ounce) cans cherry pie filling
- 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract (optional)
- 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
- 1 (9 ounce) box Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray.
- Pour the cans of pie filling into the bottom of the skillet. Stir in the almond extract, if using.
- In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix, melted butter, and cinnamon. It will be thick.
- Drop the batter by dollops on top of the filling.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the batter is set. Serve warm.
- Use any flavor pie filling with this recipe.
- If you don’t like almond extract, just leave it out.
- If you don’t like cinnamon with cherry, then just leave it out.
- Remove cobbler from the skillet and store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave.
- This is perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
- Generally I always have salted butter on hand but you can use unsalted butter.

I wonder if fresh (or frozen) cherries could be used in this recipe. I have some sour cherries (the kind I am told are are use in pies) and wonder if they would work for something like this
Thats a good question. I’m really not sure. Sour cherries are very sour. They are usually sweetened while made into a cherry pie filling.
I would love to make this recipe but i don’t think we have small boxes of cake mix in Australia, the only thing i can think of is to use A box mix with the amount that is stated in the recipe & then make cupcakes with what is left over. I would make it using pie apples as i again don’t think we have cherry pie tins here either. I wish we had all the wonderful goodies that are found in the US. Never mind we Aussies know how to adapt. Thank you for a lovely recipe.
We definitely have a lot of baking shortcuts here. You could absolutely use about half a standard-size boxed cake mix. 🙂
I love this recipe! It’s versatile, too! Spice cake with peaches! I’m making the cherry one 1st and will use the frozen cranberry hint! I had to buy a cast iron skillet! I can’t wait! Thank you for the recipe!
Hope you enjoy Jill
Well I just love all three if Y’all!!!! I enjoy saving all the recipes. Your blogs bring such pleasure each day I don’t know what is wrong with people!! If they are southern they will enjoy them too. If they are not then……who cares!!!!
My Momma taught me that being a southern lady has some rules and one of them is … if you don’t have anything nice to say about someone, then keep your mouth shut!! Folks that is just plain good manners.
Darn skippy! Love it Yecedrah – thanks SO much!!!
Try adding a cup or so of fresh or frozen whole cranberries. You won’t be able to taste the cranberries but they will make taste like it was made with fresh sour cherries. A cousin taught me this trick with cherry pie a while ago and I couldn’t believe how much it tastes like fresh cherries.
Barb – what a fantastic idea! I never thought of that! What a great tip!!!
Tried this recipe last night and it was delicious!!
Yes!! Thanks for coming back to let me know LaShawna!!
Would it come out just as good in any 10inch skillet? Or does a cast iron make it taste better.
Hi Mary! The cast iron skillet gets those edges nice and crispy. But you could certainly use something else. 🙂
The video was hilarious!! I’m glad you don’t take Trolls personally, there is always 1 negative to 10 positives in the bunch. Love this recipe:-)
Loved the video!! So hilarious. Thanks for all you do- especially causing diabetes and posting food that looks like Bleep!!! You all are a blessing and remind me of why I’m a proud southern!!
The video was good.and I wan tto make your cherry cobbler as it looks like a quikie with good eye appeal and taste. I did wonder how it got categorized as Chinese though. Must just be more s__ from you bloggers!!!!1
Nana – Oh mercy! I didn’t even notice that. Baahaha – you are so right! Let me get that fixed. I just wanted to see if anyone was paying attention 😉
I died laughing watching your video with the other bloogers. You all are hilarious! I just want to add my two cents with people I hate the most who post. I changed every single thing in your recipe and it tasted like sh*t. So I am giving it zero stars.
Hi Linda! Ha! Glad we could make you laugh! And yes about the changing of the ingredients. I never mind an honest review but I don’t think we can give honest reviews if the recipe and directions weren’t followed exactly. Right?
That is the beauty of the recipe you can use it as a basic and play with it. Other fruit yup…and I love using spice cake with apple filling, This is why I LIKE the Country Cook real recipes real cooks can use. Don’t know about other people but I am sooo tired of recipes for truffles and lobster sauce 😉
Can you use a bigger box cake mix if you use spice cake this sounds delish , I’m makeing the cherry for me I would like to try the apple?
Hi Madonna – you could but you will want to use a bigger skillet or a 9×13 baking dish. 🙂
I think I would like to try this with either apple or blueberry instead of the cherry.
All of this would work great!
