Would you believe me if I told you that you were only 3 ingredients away from making a delicious blueberry cobbler dessert? Okay, 4 if you count the scoop of ice cream at the end. But that’s still pretty unbelievable if you ask me.

I always thought blueberry cobbler was super complicated to make. I guess it is if you’re making it from scratch.

We just don’t have the time for that around here. Desserts need to be fast simple and delicious. Luckily this dessert hits all three marks.

Major short cuts are going to be taken to get the full blueberry cobbler experience in a fraction of the time. Boxed cake mix and canned blueberry pie filling are the huge time savers here. I absolutely love recipes like this.

No one needs to know how easy dessert was to make unless you want to share your secret.

  • Keep in mind that different flavors of fruit pie filling work great here, too. Try cherry pie filling or apple pie filling next time if you’d like a change.
  • Even sugar free cake mixes work great here, too. Just use your favorite one.
  • Try different cake mixes too. Like plain vanilla, chocolate or strawberry.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with different pie fillings and cake mixes. Like devils food cake and cherry pie filling or lemon cake mix with blueberry pie filling. There are so many delicious combinations.

Recipe Hack:

One of this recipes ingredients is cold butter. To get my butter cold, I just throw it into the freezer for a little bit.

You may be wondering why the cold butter at all? Well that’s a great question and here’s the answer for you. Cold butter is so much easier to grate then refrigerated or room temperature butter.

It’s grated because nothing gives you those tiny pieces of butter better than a cheese grater can. We need those little pieces for this recipe because we want the butter to melt completely on top of the cake mix. It has to be evenly spread out and in little pieces is the best way to do that. Otherwise the cobbler will have dry patches in the crust.

If you don’t have a cheese grater, you can always slice the butter into super thin pieces and lay them flat on top of the cake mix. That will work too!

If you’re a bit of a visual learner, here a short video of the blueberry cobbler recipe being made.

Recipe Ingredients/ Instructions:


  • Yellow cake mix
  • Blueberry pie filling
  • cold stick of butter
  • Vanilla ice cream


Preheat the oven to 350°

  1. Spray a 9 x 13 inch cake pan with cooking spray.

2. Place half of the cake mix on the bottom of the pan.

3. Spread it out evenly onto the bottom of the cake pan,

4. Add the blueberry pie filling on top of the cake mix.

5. Using the back of a spoon, spread the pie filling out until it completely covers the cake mix. Be careful not to disturb the cake mix too much underneath.

6. Now add the remaining cake mix evenly on top of the pie filling.

7. Grate the whole stick of cold butter using a cheese grater.

8. Sprinkle the butter as evenly as you can on top of the cake mix.

9. Bake the cobbler at 370 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly.

10. Let it cool slightly before plating. Its sloppy in natures so don’t try too hard to keep it looking pretty and perfect.

11. Serve this blueberry cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

    I just accidentally put the blueberry crumble I the oven and only used 1 21oz can of blueberry filling instead of 2! I hope it turns out ok!

    It turned out good with just one can of pie filling! Instead of white cake mix I used lemon so it was a lemon blueberry crumble cake. Thank you!
