Easiest Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts from childhood. We had several peach trees in our backyard, and during the summer months, my mom would often make cobbler for dessert using our fresh peaches. It’s still one of my favorite desserts, even as an adult, and I love that it’s so simple and easy to make. This cake mix peach cobbler is even easier to make than traditional peach cobbler, and has only a few minutes of hands on time. It’s the perfect dessert to enjoy all summer long!

I happened to have some home-canned peaches on hand, but store-bought canned peaches can work as well. You’ll need two of the smaller cans of peaches, or one of the larger cans, for a total of about 29-32 ounces. If you happen to have fresh peaches on hand, you can use 3-4 fresh peaches instead, peeled and sliced. The cobbler will be delicious either way!

How To Make Cake Mix Peach Cobbler

Prep – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Drain the jar of peaches and place them into the 9×9 baking pan.  Add in the flour and half of the cinnamon and then toss it until the peaches are completely coated.  Adding the flour will help the peach juice thicken a little as it bakes to make a nice peach filling.

Add The Cake Mix – Using a mixing bowl, whisk the cake mix and the remaining cinnamon together.  Next, you’ll grate some cold butter into your cake mix.  After you’ve grated it, cut it in using a pastry blender or two knives, until the pieces are no bigger than pea sized. Sprinkle the cake mix mixture over the top of the peaches, and then you’re ready to bake.

Heat It Up – Bake the peach cobbler for about 35-40 minutes.  It’ll be ready once the filling is bubbling and the top of the cobbler is golden brown and crisp. I think it’s best when it’s served warm, but it’s a good idea to let it sit for 15-20 minutes before serving so the filling can set up.

Recipe Tips

Perfect Texture – Grating in cold butter is one of my favorite baking tricks. It ensures that the butter is in small, evenly distributed pieces, which gives the finished baked goods a better texture.

Keep It Fresh – I always prefer to use a jar of fresh peaches or the canned version.  While you can used canned peaches, I just think the flavor and texture of fresh ones are so much better!
