What Is A Cobbler
Cobbler is a dessert that has been around for so many years. Generally, a cobbler has a fruit-filled bottom and is topped with a flour-based or cake mix in this cake topping.
Bake or cook in Instant Pot for the ultimate rich dessert. This chocolate cobbler uses a Devil’s Food cake mix as the cobbler topping.
How To Make Instant Pot Cobbler
What Is The Best Cake Mix To Use
Honestly, you can use any flavor of cake mix you want. I reached for Devil’s Food, but you can use any chocolate cake mix.
Or if you want a regular cobbler, reach for a white cake mix or even yellow. It won’t be a black forest but it will still taste insanely delicious. Box cake mix makes for an easy dessert.
What Pan To Use For Instant Pot Cobbler Recipe
I actually used the 7-inch Instant Pot cake pan. But, you are welcome to use any Instant Pot safe dish that can hold the cobbler.
I also used my Oxo Silicone Sling instead of the classic metal trivet to keep my cobbler out of the water.
If you don’t have a trivet or sling you can always ball up aluminum foil and create a stand for your pan to sit on. The biggest thing is not having the pan in the water.
What Size Instant Pot To Use
I used my 8 quart Instant Pot, but you are welcome to use your 6-quart electric pressure cooker as well. If you use an 8 quart add 2 cups water, and if using a 6 quart do 1 cup of water in the bottom of the pot.
Is This A Dump Cake
While this is a simple dessert, it is not considered a dump cake. Dump cakes are where you literally dump the ingredients into the pan.
Cobbler, you have to mix, pour, and then cook. But, it is similar to a dump cake.
How To Store
Because of the pie filling I tend to store my chocolate cobbler in the fridge. I wrap it up or place in an airtight container. Then store for 4-6 days.
Can I Swap Pie Filling
Absolutely, feel free to swap out the pie filling. Strawberry would be another great fruit filling or even a mixed berry to use.
You can also use homemade pie filling if you would prefer. Feel free to use what you have or prefer.
Instant Pot Black Forest Cobbler
- 1 box chocolate cake mix 1 5.25 size
- 1 stick of unsalted butter melted
- 2 cans of cherry pie filling
- whipped topping or ice cream optional toppings
- Grab a pan that is safe, I used a 7-inch cake pan, and then I poured my 2 cans of cherry pie filling in the bottom of the pan.
- Now grab another bowl and pour your cake mix in. Then add in the stick of butter that has been melted.
- Mix it around, it will be crumbly. Pour it over the cherry pie filling. Now, you don’t have to use all the cake mix if you don’t want. The more you add the added chocolate flavor you will get.
- Cover your pan with aluminum foil. Make sure it is tight around the edge so condensation doesn’t get inside the cobbler.
- Now pour 1-2 cups of water into your pressure cooker. 1 cup for 6 quart Instant Pot and 2 cups for an 8-quart pot.
- Place trivet in your instant pot or use a silicone sling as I used. Lower your cobbler into the Instant Pot.
- Seal and make sure the valve is closed. Select high pressure and cook for 13 minutes. Followed by 15-minute natural release.
- Once it has release naturally for 15 minutes, release any leftover pressure. Remove the black forest cobbler, and then serve!
- This black forest cobbler is the ultimate easy dessert to serve anytime or any occasion.
