This fruity dessert is as easy to make as it is delicious. Crafted with just three simple ingredients (fresh or frozen berries, vanilla cake mix, berry-flavored sparkling water), this cobbler recipe is your secret weapon for a sweet and satisfying treat. What sets it apart is not only its simplicity but also the fact that it contains a fraction of the sugar compared to traditional cobblers, making it a healthier indulgence.

The end result is warm and luscious fruit gently blended with scrumptious, moist cake. It’s gently sweet and incredibly satisfying. Spoon it into ramekins or small bowls, and for an extra touch of lavishness, garnish with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.

Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to three days, and while you can warm it up in the microwave, it’s actually just as delicious cold!

  • Recipe note:

• This recipe only needs 1 cup of LaCroix Sparkling Water (~⅔ of a can).

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 6 servings

• 4 cups frozen mixed berries (if using strawberries, make sure they’re sliced as small pieces work best)
• ½ package (~14 ounces) boxed vanilla cake mix (1¼ to 1½ cups)
• 1 cup berry-flavored LaCroix Sparkling Water*

* I used LaCroix Black-Razzberry when creating this recipe, but I imagine any of their berry flavors should work well.


Mist a 9- x 13-inch casserole pan with nonstick oil spray. Add fresh or frozen berries to the bottom of pan and shake to distribute them evenly. Sprinkle about ½ the dry cake mix over the top (1¼ to 1½ cups). Pour the cup of LaCroix evenly over top and mix everything together. Place in oven set at 350˚ and bake for 50 to 55 minutes until the berries are bubbling and the cake is set and slightly browned on top.  Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes to slightly firm.

The cobbler will have a drippy, jammy consistency and be bursting with fruit. Scoop out portions using a serving spoon and transfer to ramekins or small bowls. Garnish with optional whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.
