Peach cobbler with cake mix is a 4 ingredient, delicious summer dessert. Serve warm with a big scoop of ice cream for the ultimate tasty treat. 

Cake mixes are a great shortcut for semi-homemade recipes like cake mix waffles, cake mix brownies and cake mix lemon cookies

This peach cobbler or peach dump cake is one of those easy recipes that are great to have on hand for a last minute dessert. Most of the ingredients you might already have in the pantry, dump them in a baking dish and have it baking in the oven in 5 minutes. 

It’s also a great, simple recipe to have your kids help make. 

Difference between cobbler and crisp?

Fruit cobblers typically are prepared in a deep dish and topped with a cake or biscuit like topping. Crisps have a crunchy, streusel like topping. 

Ingredients Needed

Yellow Cake Mix – Yellow is a classic flavor but it’s also delicious made with White, Vanilla, Spice and even Butter Pecan cake mix. 

Butter – I recommend using salted butter to help balance out the sweetness. Unsalted will also work fine. 

Canned Sliced Peaches – You will want to use the peaches and the juice. Do not drain. 

Cinnamon – This is optional but I love the extra spice cinnamon adds. You could even add a pinch of nutmeg for a little something extra.

  3. Serve: Serve warm by itself, ice cream or whipped cream.

Recipe tips

  • Be sure to spread the peaches around evenly in the dish. Tip: If you are serving to younger kids, try cutting the peaches into smaller pieces before adding the cake mix. This makes it a little easier to eat. 
  • Make sure to slice the butter thin to cover the entire cobbler. 
  • If you like a little extra sweetness and crunch, sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the top of the butter before baking. 
  • If you like a little extra “spice”, use a butter pecan cake mix instead of yellow.  

How to store

Make sure to let the cobbler cool completely and then place in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave.

Cake mix cobbler variations

This recipe is so simple, it can be used with other fruits. Just follow the same directions I would have to say this peach version is one of my favorites but here are a few other fruits to try:

  • Apple
  • Blueberry
  • Cherry

Can you make this in the crockpot?

Yes! Spray bottom of slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and add canned peaches with the juice. Melt butter and stir it in with cake mix. Sprinkle that over the peaches and cook on low for 4 hours or high 2 hours.
