We love cobbler, so I'll definitely try this very e-z recipe. I'll use either fresh or frozen fruit, in order to eliminate excess sugar. I won't even have to buy the seltzer, since I have a Soda-Stream machine, an assortment of flavors to add into the seltzer. Thanks very much for posting this recipe. I can't wait to try this -)

I LOVE peach cobbler, especially if it's easy. I'll have to give this a try

Soda and cake mix is definitely not a combination I ever thought I'd put together but I'm really intrigued in the many variations that can be made up but, I'm kinda curious, doesn't cake mix kinda need the oil and eggs to make it that cakey texture or is that what we're trying to avoid in this recipe. I'm thinking lemon cake and blueberries will be my first creation and afterward maybe chocolate cake and raspberries. I can't wait!

This is a fun recipe that is so easy even the kids can make it which is what mine did this evening. They chose bananas and a chocolate cake mix (because that is what we had in the pantry) and they thought the result was spectacularly delicious, lol. I admit it was, er, interesting but I think next time I will do the flavor selection!

When I read the recipe, I kept thinking this is basically a dump cake, only with the addition of the flavored carbonated soda. Our local Kroger store carries a batch of flavored sodas, and I can see making up the peach version with some of their house brand peach soda. This really is a super simple recipe to keep in mind when something needs to be made quickly.

I love all of the flavor combination suggestions of fruits and sodas for this three ingredient dessert! I would definitely recommend using fresh or frozen fruit over canned to cut back on the added sugar. Additionally, you could also use a flavored cake mix instead of white like lemon, chocolate, or strawberry!

I've made something similar to this several times and each time it's fantastic. I've used canned pie filling and lemon-lime soda too with great results. I've never mixed the cake mix with the liquid though. I use a "dump" method, dump in the fruit, sprinkle the cake mix on top as even as possible, pour liquid over again trying to be even to limit dry spots. I love this!
