Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe:

Whenever my mom and dad visit they like to come the “back way” to avoid traffic.  This backway takes them right through a little Texas town called Fredericksburg.  Fredericksburg is known for all of the nearby Hill Country Wine Vineyards and of course, Stonewall peaches.

During peach season, my parents always bring me a box of freshly picked peaches and we usually make several peach desserts, like ice cream, peach jam and this easy dump peach cobbler recipe.

Now of course, peeling fresh peaches is not necessarily the easiest of tasks, but usually one of my parents will peel and prep a good amount of the peaches and I do all the cooking.

As I sit here editing these photos, I am daydreaming about how good this peach cobbler recipe is!

Easy Cake Mix Cobbler

The peaches in this cobbler recipe are amazing of course, but I think the “crust” is the best part of the cobbler, it’s so rich, buttery and delicious.

If you’ve ever had a dump cake, this peach cobbler with cake mix is very similar in that you’re dumping prepared peaches into a casserole dish, covering them with cake mix and butter and then baking.

Can I Use Frozen Peaches in this Cobbler Recipe?

Of course! Using frozen peaches is perfectly fine and means you can have this amazing peach dessert any time of the year. Another bonus to frozen peaches is you don’t have to peel the peaches! 

To use frozen peaches in this recipe, I recommend defrosting and bringing to room temperature first.

If the peaches are cold or partially frozen when you add them to the recipe, you will need to add at least 10 to 15 minutes to the cooking time and potentially will need to add foil to the top to prevent over browning off the topping.

You could also use canned peaches in syrup, (just eliminate the extra sugar.)  But for superior results and flavor, I recommend fresh or frozen peaches.

Ingredients in Easy Peach Cake Mix Cobbler

If you are heading to the store and want to make this peach cobbler, make sure to add these items to your shopping list:

  • 4 cups of sliced peaches (fresh or frozen) (around 6 peaches or 2lbs)
  • Sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Lemon juice
  • Butter
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix

How to Make Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix Topping

 Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  1st up, you will prep the peaches: Combine sugar and cornstarch together in a saucepan. Add the sliced peaches and lemon juice.

Combine so that the peaches are evenly coated.

You’ll then cook the peach mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. 

Next, pour the cake mix into a mixing bowl, add the cut up butter. Use two knives or a pastry cutter and “cut” the butter into the mix until it is crumbly.

Add your peaches to a greased 9 by 13 cake pan and top with the cake mix crumble topping.

Cook for about 45 minutes (maybe longer.)  The crust should be crispy and a deep golden brown.

Tip: I had a reader suggest, for an extra crunch, try adding a generous handful of chopped pecans to the topping layer.  I love pecans and think that sounds divine.  

A suggestion from another reader was to double the amount of peaches. Sounds delish.

Serve the peach cobbler with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

I think I’ll have to add this to our menu next week, peach cobbler is the perfect complement to barbecue.  ( I will definitely be using frozen and thawed peaches, to save me the extra work of peeling the peaches.)

    Made it with a combination of peaches and nectarines we were given, and added cinnamon to the cake mix mixture because I’m a cinnamon freak!

  2. tried this recipe and it ended up so good my brothers and parents loved it!

  3. So yummy! ! I used a butter flavored cake mix instead of yellow and I added an extra half a stick of butter on top of the cobbler to make sure it was moist and it was! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I made this recipe and it was very easy and delicious! I made one change and that was to sprinkle pecans on top! We loved the taste and the texture that they gave to it! Will be making it again!

  5. This was super easy to make and was a hit with my big family!

  6. Made this several times for my family and it is a HIT every time!!!

  7. Patricia Manfrates says:

    Do you still need to “cook” peaches if you are using frozen (thawed) peaches? These tend to be more watery than fresh. Thanks1

    1. I do believe you will still need to cook the peaches as you are trying to soften the peaches a bit and achive a thicker syrup with the juice. Although I have not tried not cooking the peaches first so that is just a guess. Let us know if you try it and how it turns out.

  8. Peaches are easy peasy to peel…put a pan of water on to boil, cut an X on the bottom of the peach, drop in the water for 15 seconds, drop the hot peach in ice water and the peeling will slip right off. Quick and easy to yummy. :>)

  9. Tried this recipe tonight . It smells and looks amazing! Thanks for sharing!!

    Im. diabetic can I use spendla instead of
    sugar ? Thank you. Beverly

  11. I decided to check this after 32 minutes. It was already golden brown and beginning to burn around the edges.

  12. I found you from Inspiration Monday Linky Party. Wow that is looking really delicious. We LOVE peach cobbler, but I haven't made it like this before. I have done a crockpot version of it with pie filling, but never in the oven. I'll have to give this a try when I just can't wait for the crockpot.

  19. I can't wait to try this!!! It's getting pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Hi there,
    This pudding looks amazing! I have a daft question; when you say 'yellow cake mix', do you mean a plain sponge mix? We don't have cobbler here in England (atleast I haven't seen it anywhere) and I'm just trying to decide what it is exactly! Can the topping be made from scratch? Is it a bit like a crumble topping? Sorry for all the questions!
    Love your blog btw!

    1. A cobbler is a fruit pie with only a top crust. It is usually done in a rectangular or square pane rather than a round pie pan. You could just put a sweet crumble top on it. It would be very good with chopped pecans in the crumble and maybe a little cinnamon.

      A yellow cake mix is a regular sponge cake mix. I suppose it looks yellow because of the addition of whole eggs if you are mixing for a regular cake. A white cake mix uses egg whites ( like an angel food cake). I hope this helps.

  21. Oh my goodness… this looks so incredible! I think I need to make a peach cobbler tomorrow! Thanks for sharing with us this week at Monday Funday!

    Take care,

    Trish

  22. I do the same type of recipe, but just purchase the peaches in syrup or the ones in the cans with cinnamon then you don't need to add sugar. Pour those in the bottom of cake pan, sprinkle dry cake mix on top, cut up in thin slices/pats a stick of butter. I'm thinking this one is easier! :0)

    1. That does sound easy, for potlucks, I make a pineapple cherry dump cake with that method. But we were using Stonewall Peaches in this recipe. Stonewall Peaches are legendary, they are the sweetest and juiciest peaches found in the United States. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I literally LOL'd…especially since mom cut up all the peaches. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚
