3 Cobbler Recipes Using Soda

I’m not much of a soda drinker, but my husband bleeds Diet Mountain Dew.  For those readers like me who don’t drink the stuff but happen to have a bunch on hand, I’m going to share a few fab cobbler recipes using soda! These are so fun to make during backyard BBQs!

White Cherry Cobbler


2 cans cherry pie filling (or apple or peach!)
1 box yellow cake mix
1 12 oz can 7-up or Sierra Mist
Cubed butter

Chocolate Cherry Cobbler


2 cans cherry pie filling
1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
1 12 oz can Pepsi or Coke
Cubed butter

Directions for both cobblers:

Spread the two cans of pie filling over the bottom of a Dutch oven. Pour the box of dry cake mix evenly over the pie filling. Pour the entire can of soda evenly over the top of the dry cake mix. Sprinkle chopped butter pieces over cake mix.

Place the Dutch oven on a bed of preheated coals. This will give you heat from the bottom. Then place the lid on the dutch oven and cover with coals. The majority of the coals should be around the edges with a few in the middle by the handle.

Bake about 45 to 50 minutes, checking occasionally to see if it is burning or testing to see if it is cooked through.

You can also make this in the oven if you are not much of a Dutch oven cooker! Spread your ingredients into a 9×13 baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.

Mountain Dew Apple Cobbler


2 large Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 12 oz can Mountain Dew


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Peel, core and slice into eighths. Wrap each piece of apple in a segment of crescent roll dough. Place wrapped apples in greased baking dish. Melt butter and stir in sugar until dissolved. Spread over apples. Pour Mountain Dew over everything and do not stir. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, uncovered.

  • My iwfe wanted a cobbler with soda recipes. Nothing in Scout or Dutch Oven books, but she said why not ‘net it. Google and you came through with three. Thanks.

  • so I just put the Mnt dew cobbler in the oven, however I think I messed it up. I didn’t really think twice about it untiI put the butter sugar mix over the rest. And reading the recipe the way it’s written, made me think it said 1 and a half cups sugar. But once I noticed it looked wrong, I re read the ingredients and I think you only mean 1/2 cup?? I’m not sure how this is gonna turn out, but we’ll see 🙂

  • So…my family and I have made this recipe several times before I ever saw your post, but I would like to let you know we’ve always had more luck with this when we premix the soda and the cake…sometimes it doesn’t mix right while cooking and the cake will come out powdery.
