Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler

I already have a really good, simple recipe for peach cobbler that I love, but I was looking for something just a bit different to make, using ingredients I already had on hand. I came across a couple of different versions of peach cobbler made with cake mix and decided to give it a try.

  • 2 regular or 1 large can of peaches
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 c (1 stick) of butter or margarine, melted
  • chopped pecans
  • cinnamon

Grease or spray a baking dish--I didn't have a lot of peaches, so I used an 8 1/2 x 11 inch dish. Pour in the peaches, juice and all. Add the whole package of dry cake mix on top, smoothing to the edges and into the corners. Sprinkle with cinnamon and chopped nuts.

Pour melted butter all over the top. (some versions of this recipe state to cut the butter up and dot it all over. I chose melt and pour.)

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Cool for just a bit, if you can stand to wait. It smells wonderful, and tastes just as good!

I'll be honest, I have a peach cobbler recipe that I love already, and I was a bit hesitant about the cinnamon and nuts, which I don't usually associate with peaches. But I have to say, the taste on this just blew me away. It's a whole different taste and texture from the one I usually make, but it's every bit as good. The nuts added texture and taste that set this apart from the ordinary.

I'll definitely be making this again--this one is a keeper!

  10. This is one of my family's favorites. I have done it with fresh peaches, when they are in season and blackberries, too.
    Yours looks delicious!

  11. Yum! Think I'll add peaches to my grocery list! Included your recipe on my Fri Favorites list!

  12. Someone else posted this recipe today also. I'll tell you what I told her — if I use cake mix I call it a dump cake and if I make it from scratch I call it cobbler.

    But you're right, they both taste great whatever you call it! lol

  13. I've seen some variation of this recipe before but had forgotten. Yours looks delicious and thanks for posting...maybe I will remember and give it a try now.

  14. This really looks so simple and so good. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I hope you're having a terrific Foodie Friday.

  15. This is a wonderful recipe. Not only does the cobbler look delicious, it's a time saver. Thank you!
