Instant Pot Cherry Cobbler

The Best Instant Pot Cherry Cobbler is made with yellow cake mix, cherry filling and a dash of amaretto to really bring out the cherry flavor.

A DELICIOUSLY FAST COBBLER RECIPE

One of my favorite flavors of cobbler is cherry cobbler. I just love anything cherry! This cobbler is adapted from my Cherry Dump Cake Recipe. I just kicked it up a notch by adding a touch of amaretto for a more grown-up flavor.

WHAT IS AMARETTO? CAN I LEAVE IT OUT?

  • Amaretto is a sweet Italian liqueur. You usually see it sold under the brand name of “Disaronno”. It is basically a sweet almond-flavored alcoholic beverage. Did you know that the difference between liqueur and liquor is that liqueur is an inherently sweet distilled alcohol and liquor is an inherently unsweet distilled alcohol. So if you see “liqueur” on any alcoholic drink label, you will know it will be on the sweet side.
  • You can absolutely leave the amaretto liqueur out of this recipe and just use the almond extract. It will still taste fabulous!

TIPS FOR MAKING INSTANT POT COBBLER CHERRY COBBLER

  • This recipe is extremely versatile. Try switching up the cake and pie filling flavors. The cherry pie filling goes wonderfully with chocolate cake mix as well. Or perhaps try peach pie filling with a butter pecan cake mix. The possibilities are nearly endless!
  • As I stated above, the amaretto is optional and so is the cinnamon in this recipe. I do highly recommend keeping the almond extract though. It really deepens the flavor of the cherry pie filling.
  • Use real butter, not margarine.
  • If you want a crispier topping, pop your dish into the oven and under the broiler for just a few minutes to brown it and crisp it up some.

    Hello! I love your recipes and having recently moved from Southern California to Tennessee, I am learning to use a crockpot. Can this recipe be done in a crockpot and or conventional oven?
    My family and I can’t wait to try it!

    Thank you,
    Beverly

      1. Hi Brandie, Why is the recipe different for the oven version? I like the additional ingredients in this recipe, so will this recipe work with the oven instructions?
