How To Make Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix

You won’t believe how easily you can turn a can of peaches and a box of your favorite vanilla cake mix into a cobbler.

Ingredients

All you need to make this peach cobbler are a few basic ingredients:

  • Canned Sliced Peaches – I like slices, so I don’t have to cut the peach in halves. This recipe uses the juice from the cans, so don’t discard it.
  • Cornstarch
  • Yellow Cake Mix or vanilla cake mix. A 15-oz bag of dry cake mix is what you need for this peach cobbler recipe.
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Extract – optional, but it adds a delicious taste to the canned peaches.
  • Melted Butter – dairy or non-dairy butter,
  • Brown Sugar

Draining The Peaches

First, place a sieve above a mixing bowl and pour the canned peaches into the sieve. Keep both, the peaches in the sieve, and the juice in the bowl.

Peach Layer

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly butter a 9-inch x 9-inch baking dish. Set aside.

Place the peach slices evenly in the prepared baking dish.

Sprinkle cinnamon, cornstarch, brown sugar, vanilla extract. Then, add the 1/4 cup of peach juice you set aside. Mix the peach cobbler bottom layer to coat the peach slices evenly with the mixture. Set aside.

Cobbler Biscuit Layer

In another large mixing bowl add dry cake mix, melted butter and 3/4 cup of peach juice from the step 1.

Whisk until it forms a smooth cake batter.

Drop the cake mix batter over the peaches.

Bake the cake for 35 to 40 minutes at 350°F (180°C) until the top is golden brown.

Topping Ideas

A cobbler is always better with some toppings. Serve about 1/2 cup of this recipe in a shallow bowl and top it with some of the delicious cobbler topping ideas below:

  • Scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Shredded coconut
  • Dollop of Greek yogurt for a protein add on.
  • Sliced almonds

Allergy Swaps

Here are some options to make this recipe if you have some food allergies.

  • Peach Swap – You can use other canned fruits like canned apricot halves or pineapple.
  • Dairy-Free – Use a dairy-free milk like almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk. Swap the melted butter for melted margarine or vegetable oil.
  • Gluten-Free – Use a gluten-free vanilla cake mix.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are my answers to your most common questions about this easy dessert recipe.

Can I Use Fresh Peaches?

If you are using fresh peaches, peel them, core them, and cut them in slices.
Place the slices in a non-stick saucepan with 1/3 cup of water, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Cook until the peaches are softer and a syrup forms. Remove from heat and stir the vanilla extract.

What’s The Difference Between A Peach Cobbler And A Peach Dump Cake?

A dump cake consists of throwing all the ingredients into the baking dish, it’s a zero-bowl recipe.
A cobbler requires two steps, preparing the fruit layer and the biscuit layer.
In the end, the texture of both desserts is very different even if they both look pretty similar from the outside.
A dump cake topping is moist and not as thick and cakey in texture.

Can I Make A Peach Dump Cake With Cake Mix?

Yes, to do so pour one 15-ounce can of peach slices in a 9-inch square baking pan with their juice.
Add one can of drained peaches. Pour the white cake mix over the peaches.
Finally, drizzle the melted butter and cinnamon on top. Don’t stir, bake it as is.

Why Is My Peach Cobbler Gooey?

This happens when there’s too much liquid in the fruit layer. You can stir 1 tablespoon of cornstarch or tapioca flour in the fruit to avoid a soggy texture.

Can You Make A Cobbler The Night Before?

Absolutely yes! Cool down the cobbler at room temperature, place a piece of foil on the baking pan and refrigerate overnight.
Rewarm the next day or serve cold.

How Do You Store Cobbler After Baking?

Cool completely in its baking dish. Tent the pan with a large piece of foil and place on top of the fridge.
It keeps fresh for up to 4 days. Rewarm in single portions in a microwave-safe bowl or oven-safe ramekin.

Why Is My Cobbler Not Cooking In The Middle?

Uncooked cobbler comes from too much liquid released by the fruits.
That’s why it’s better to use canned fruit – they don’t release more juice, or use fresh fruit and cook them with sugar and cornstarch before adding it in the pan.

  1. 5 stars
    I am baking this cobbler. I did tweak it. I added an extra 1/8 cup of juice to the cake batter. I used 1 teaspoon of almond extract and no vanilla extract. I added a pinch of salt and one envelope of True Lemon (crystallized lemon). I added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg.

    I will edit this once it is baked and tasted.
