This is one of the tastiest desserts, but it is also incredibly easy. And, if you have been reading for a while, that’s two of my favorite things, because life is already complicated, let us not get it more complicated.
I have a confession to make, I used to make this in my crockpot, before my Instant Pot, and before my air fryer, and before I got brave one day and decided to go through all of my appliances and get rid of the crockpots (I had 8 ladies & gentlemen).
Now, that I’m stocked my 3 air fryers, and 4 Instant Pots, do you see I have an obsession going on? It’s ok, I love it all, and I own it too.
So, what’s exciting today is my Old Fashioned Cherry Cobbler, made in 36 minutes, 35 minutes of that was the cooking time. It’s a whisk to whip up, so if you have an outing where you have to bring a dessert, this is your thing. It’s also going to be fabulous this summer, after an amazing air fryer meal, or BBQ.
I am always on the lookout for an easy air fryer or Instant Pot dessert recipe, as I have teens and after they eat a huge dinner, twenty minutes later they are ready for dessert.
The base of this dessert is melted butter, you literally pour it on the bottom of the pan, and then in a small mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and milk, and just pour it over the melted butter, and then open a can of pie filling and pour that over. No need to stir, no need to mix. It is so easy, and it’s so interchangeable that this recipe is a winner. (As they say, winner, winner chicken dinner, unfortunately, we have to change that to winner, winner, cherry cobbler (although that doesn’t rhyme, let me know when you think of something good.)
As always, I hope you and your loved ones love this recipe.

Air Fryer-Old Fashioned Cherry Cobbler
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 21 ounces cherry pie filling
Start by mixing together the flour, sugar and baking powder in a small bowl, then mix in the milk.
Mix everything together until it's nice and well blended.
Then in the microwave or small saucepan, melt the butter.
Pour the butter into the bottom of your 8x8 pan, and then pour the batter and cherry filling on top. Do you mix, it will all bubble up, during the cooking time.
Set your air fryer to 320 degrees F, and set the time for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, check the batter, you are looking for golden brown, I put my cobbler back in the air fryer for another 15 minutes.
Remove from the air fryer, let cool, then
Plate, serve & enjoy!
