Instant Pot Cherry Cobbler

This pressure cooker cherry cobbler is crazy simple to make. You just need a couple of ingredients and a little bit of time to cook.

What Cake Mix To Use For Cherry Cobbler Topping

White or yellow cake mix would work in this recipe. If you were craving a chocolate and cherry flavor you could possibly try a chocolate cake as well.

I find that using a cake mix as the topping for your cherry cobbler really cuts a ton of time out of the prep work.

How To Make Cherry Cobbler In Instant Pot

Pour the cherry pie filling into the dish, and set aside. Then you will work up the cake mix topping and spoon over the cherry pie crust.

The next thing you will do is cook as directed below. Then let it cool down a bit, spoon into bowls or a plate and enjoy.

Kids and adults will both love this cherry cobbler recipe.

What Is The Difference Between Pie and Cobbler

The difference between pie and cobbler is all about the crust. A pie has a flour type crust on the bottom, that is then filled with fruit or other filling.

Cobblers have the filling on the bottom and then topped with a cake mix style topping.

Pies and cobblers offer a similar flavor, and I love the ease of this fruit cobbler recipe.

Is This A Dump Cake Recipe

No, you will find dump cakes are made a bit different. You would sprinkle dry cake mix over the batter then place sliced butter all over the top.

Both desserts use similar ingredients but the process of how the recipes are assembled is different.

ingredients to make an easy Cherry Cobbler:


  1. Add cherry pie filling to a casserole dish that will fit inside your pressure cooker.
  2. Mix melted butter with cake mix.

  4. Add 1 1/2 cups water (1 cup if using a 6 quart pressure cooker) of water to the inner pot of your Instant Pot.
  5. Lower the casserole dish into the inner pot onto a trivet with a sling.
  6. Seal and set for a high pressure time of 10 minutes. Allow for a natural pressure release of 10 minutes, and then let the remaining pressure out.

  8. Remove from the pot (or broiler) and serve warm with ice cream.



  • Can my dog have Cherry Cobbler? The short answer is no, dogs shouldn't eat cherries, even though your dog may have eaten a cherry or two in the past and felt fine afterward. Many fruits are healthy and safe for dogs, but while cherries do contain some beneficial nutrients, they can do a lot more harm than good and usually aren't worth the risks. The pits of cherries contain cyanide, which can potentially cause toxicity in your dog. Also typical pie crust is not healthy for dogs.
  • Can my cat have Cherry Cobbler? Yes, cats can eat cherries as long as the pits are removed! But remember they based their diet on meat and proteins, so your cats are most likely to try a cherry out to satisfy their curiosity. On the other hand... Pie crust is high in fat, either butter or vegetable shortening, and high in calories relative to nutritional value, and so not good for kitties. ... All in all, it's best to not allow kitty to eat the cobbler.

  1. I just put my cherry cobbler in my Instant Pot! I'm very excited to see how it turns out. I'm not really a cobbler/pie person myself, but my husband LOVES anything cobbler or pie related! Thanks so much for the recipe. 🙂
