Let me show you just how SIMPLE and EASY this Cake Mix Peach Cobbler is to make. Here’s exactly how this wonderful peach dessert comes together:
Step 1: Add Peaches to Bottom of Baking Dish or 9×13″ Pan
When mom and I made this dessert we used a 9×13″ pan, but feel free to use a baking dish of similar size 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.
FYI – 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.
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.
Step 4: Add Chopped Pecans to the Cake Mix Peach Cobbler
The pecans are certainly optional, but like I mentioned earlier I absolutely LOVE pecans and peaches together. As the cobbler bakes, the pecans toast beautifully. They add a great crunch to every bite of this fantastic peach dessert!
Step 5: Bake
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. When my mom and I used a 9×13″ pan, we needed a bit more baking time, around 50+ minutes. Using the oval baker, at around 40 minutes to 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.
