Fun Food: Brownie Cobbler

Here's a fun activity for the kids to produce for tonight's dessert! Kids love working in the kitchen; and, it teaches them much more than they realize. Consider all of the math practice they get just from one recipe, not to mention reading and listening skills.

This is also a cool variation of the old-fashioned cobbler we all know and love. If you don't like cherry filling, please feel free to use any flavor of canned or homemade fruit filling.


1 21 1/2-ounce package brownie mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 9-ounce package yellow cake mix, dry
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 21-ounce can cherry filling and topping


1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions using water, vegetable oil and egg. Spread dough evenly in a lightly greased 13 9 2-inch baking pan.

2. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 15 minutes, or until brownies are halfway done.

3. Meanwhile, cut butter into dry cake mix until mixture is crumbly. Remove half-baked brownies from oven; spoon cherry filling as evenly as possible over brownie layer. Sprinkle cake mixture over cherry layer. Continue baking in a 350 degree oven about 50 minutes, or until top is golden brown and brownies and filling are set. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
