Easy Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
Looking for a simple, delicious way to enjoy fresh summer peaches? This easy 4-ingredient cake mix peach cobbler is a fantastic summer dessert.
This recipe can use fresh, frozen or canned peaches, which makes it a dessert you can make almost any time of year. Served warm with vanilla ice cream, this easy peach cobbler recipe is amazing!
Step 1: Add Peaches to Bottom of Baking Dish or 9×13″ Pan
Use either a 9×13″ pan, or a similar sized baking dish, like this oval baker.
If fresh peaches are in season, I would definitely recommend fresh. However, if fresh peaches are out of season or not available, feel free to use frozen or canned.
When using frozen, let the peaches thaw and come to room temperature before baking. Should you be using canned peaches, drain off the majority of the juice.
Step 2: Melt Butter and add Cake Mix
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and then add the cake mix. I used a white cake mix, however, a yellow cake mix works just as well. Stir the butter and mix together to combine.
Pro Tip for making peach cobbler dump cake: There are several other recipes out there that have you dump the cake mix directly over the top of the peaches, and then pour the melted butter over that. I don’t recommend this method.
Not only does the mix not bake evenly, but you also tend to have dry, powdery clumps of mix in the cobbler, which isn’t ideal.
Getting a good consistency for this easy Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix:
As you stir the butter and cake mix together it will take on a crumbly, gravel-like consistency. This really makes the perfect cobbler for your peaches and will absorb the juices of the peaches as it bakes.
Step 3: Add the Cake Mix Crumble to the Top of the Peaches
Evenly sprinkle the cake mix crumble on top of the peaches. If you get big chunks, or mix that isn’t quite incorporated, simply pinch it together with your hands, and crumble apart.
A lumpy, gravel-like consistency is what you’re going for with the topping. Having lumps and clumps will ensure you have a crisp top, versus a soggy or powdery unappetizing topping.
Step 4: Add Chopped Pecans
The pecans are certainly optional, but a great addition to this cobbler recipe. As the cobbler bakes, the pecans toast nicely and add a great crunchy texture to this peach dessert.
Note for baking with pecans: if topping your cobbler with pecans, cover the top of the baking dish with foil. This will ensure the pecans don’t over-brown before the rest of the cobbler bakes. Foil can be removed the last 10 minutes of baking.
Step 5: Bake the Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
Once the pecans have been added to the top of the cobbler, bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Keep watch of your cobbler as it bakes.
If using a 9×13″ pan, you’ll need slightly more baking time, around 50+ minutes. Using the oval baker, at around 40 minutes, the cobbler was golden brown and ready to come out of the oven.
Step 6: Let Cool Slightly and Serve Warm
Once the cake mix peach cobbler comes out of the oven, let it cool for at least 10 minutes at room temperature. The fruit on the bottom will be bubbling and pipping hot, and the juices from the fruit will bake perfectly with the crumb topping.
This cobbler is the perfect dessert served warm with a big scoop of delicious, vanilla ice cream! The ice cream cools the dessert a bit, and as it melts, becomes a wonderful peaches and cream dessert!
Top the bowls of cobbler with a few fresh peach slices if you like. It’s such a wonderful way to enjoy the delicious flavors of summer, and will definitely take you back home. Enjoy! ~Erin
