Simple Apple Cobbler Using a Cake Mix

I remember when I first learned how to make this cobbler.  I was cooking for the ranch and the neighboring cook always made this great apple cobbler.  When I asked, she said that she uses a cake mix, 1 or 2 cans of filling, and a can of sprite or butter.  We made it with sprite and it was great but we liked it with butter better, especially for the days I’d serve ice cream with it.    It’s a very simple recipe and a favorite in the family now.  Enjoy y’all!

    I make this but I call it “dump cake” and I also make it with cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple together. My husband loves the cherry and pineapple one best because he loves pineapple.
