This weekend was definitely a long one. SC’s mom was moving, and we celebrated two birthdays among our family and friends.
So in between working and driving 30 minutes to my future mother-in-law’s new house to help her move and decorate, I had to come up with some way to keep everybody’s spirit up AND celebrate the birthdays. Enter Duncan Hines.
I had already made the boyfriend some rice krispies, because he wanted to buy the store bought ones and those are TOTALLY not the same. And also, he worked his butt off this weekend and was totally exhausted, I wanted to do something to perk up his spirit a little going into the workweek. But I decided to double up the desserts because, well, who doesn’t love a good (and super simple) cherry cobbler?
I got off work on Sunday night and whipped up the cobbler in no time at all. Seriously, it took me all of 10 minutes to open the can, pour all the ingredients in the pan, and throw in the oven to bake. Then it was off to SC’s mom’s new house to celebrate with a group of friends. His mom had actually already made brownies, so we all just completely gave up being healthy this weekend. But I think we all earned it.
To make the cobbler, all you have to do is open a can of Comstock Cherry Pie Filling (you can use any of their canned pie fillings, I just love the cherry) and dump it into the bottom of the pan. After that, grab a box of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix and pour the dry mix into the pan, right on top of the cherries. After that, grab a stick of butter and cut it into slices, spreading the slices all over the surface of the cake mix. throw it in the oven for 30-35 minutes at 350*. That’s it! Super simple. (I also LOVE it in a crock pot. Little changes to the recipe but still deelish!)
I think SC both loves me and hates me right now, but it was totally worth it! Oh yeah, and this also happened. A little Christmas spirit, amiright?
