A family favorite for over 40 years, this quick and easy Berry Cobbler Recipe takes only 5 minutes to prepare, with 5 ingredients. No batter mixing required!


  • 1 can (15 to 16 ounce) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 heaping cups fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, or a mix) – see Note
  • 8 to 9 ounces yellow cake mix – see Note
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 7×11-inch baking dish.
  2. Spread pineapple evenly in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Top with berries.
  4. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over the top.
  5. Scatter pecans over cake mix.
  6. Drizzle melted butter evenly over the top. Let sit for a few minutes to allow the butter to seep into the cake mix a bit.
  7. Bake for 1 hour, or until bubbly and topping is a nice golden brown.
  8. Best served warm or at room temperature but not hot, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.


Berries: Can also substitute frozen berries, or 1 can of apple, cherry or blueberry pie filling.

Make ahead: Cobbler can be made earlier in the day, covered and held at room temperature.

Yellow cake mix: If using Jiffy brand, one 9-ounce package is perfect. Most other brands come in a 15 to 16-ounce package, so use half.
