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 a traditional peach cobbler and has only a few minutes of hands-on time. It’s the perfect dessert to enjoy all summer long!
How To Make Cake Mix Peach Cobbler
- cake mix – I prefer white cake mix, but you can use yellow cake mix if you have it.
- peaches – see my notes below for all the different options you can use.
I happened to have home-canned peaches on hand, but store-bought cans of peaches can work as well. You’ll need 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!
Prep – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Drain the jar of peaches to get rid of the syrup and place the peach slices 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.
Serve – 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. Add some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’re good to go!
Easy Peach Cobbler 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.
Optional Add-Ins – You can sub other pie fillings in place of peaches for this recipe. Apple, strawberry, and cherry pie filling taste amazing! Adding nuts (like chopped pecans) is also delicious!
