A couple of friends recommended this Pinterest recipe. I’m not a big fan of Pinterest food and often find the recipes revolting. This was one such recipe, but with glowing recommendations, I decided to give it a try. As you can see from the top photo, it turned out to be a mess. Please note the globs of dry cake mix still sitting on the finished cake.
What is this so-called recipe? Put fresh fruit in a 13 x 9 pan, sprinkle white or yellow cake mix over the fruit, pour a can of sprite or 7-up over the whole thing, bake in a 350 oven. I baked it for 30 min but after complaining about my bad results, one of my recipe advisors said I should have baked it for 45 minutes. I cannot see where another 15 minutes would have helped dry cake mix. Besides the fruit was just right and the edges were crispy.
Terry says he likes it well enough to eat it. I sure wouldn’t serve it to guests unless I never wanted them to return. Terry did point out how picky I am about desserts so that may be part of my problem.
I found that if I flip the ‘cobbler’ over, the fruit part is okay to eat.
I’m always skeptical of recipes that use a prepackaged product, like a cake mix, in a non ordinary way. You’d think I’d learn!
