Reviews for Minister's Delight
"This was way to sweet (and I like sweet). Next time I will use the unsweetened pie filling and either use 2 cans of filling or reduce cake mix to 1/2. I also think the oven would to a better job than the slow cooker."
"I have varied tastes to provide for, so I used two different kinds of pie filling. I made a "pan divider" out of folded tin foil to split my 9 x 13" pan in half. I poured a can of blueberry on one side, and a can of cherry pie filling on the other. After I added my cake mix crumbs, I removed the divider and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Everyone's happy! It IS sweet, but my husband has a (very) sweet tooth - and he liked it."
"Made the recipe in a 3 quart with 2 cans of filling, cooked almost 3 hours but still looked "raw". Next time I will make it with enough time to use a backup."
"This is a five star recipe for sure....easy to make, easy to take along, taste wonderful to young and old alike. I have enjoyed it for years, and have never been disapointed with the results. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to guild the lilly."
"Also need 3 hours on low, not 2 hours."
"Update to my review-Yes I would also use 2 cans pie filing.I also tried making a "savory" topping by combining half a box of cake mix with an equal amount of baking biscuit mix. We like this version even better since it reduces the sweetness."
"Have never made this "cobbler" in the crock pot but it comes out great baked in the oven. I use a 13x9x2 baking dish at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly. I've used several different flavors of pie filling and cake mixes and they all come out with equal success. You can reduce the amount of butter to cut back on the fat and calories also. This is such a comforting dessert to warm the soul."
