So yesterday was National Eat a Peach Day!  And in true Stacey fashion I’m a day late and a dollar short.  But, this recipe is outstanding no matter what day it’s posted.

A few weekends ago, we were at my parents’ house for Sunday supper.  After her usual over-the-top spread, Mom presented several desserts.  Yes, I said several.  In addition to the amazing, expertly prepared Oreo cheesecake, this cobbler was something she “just threw together.”  Well, y’all know what an Oreo fan I am, but I have to say, this cobbler stole the show.  It is, by far, the BEST cobbler I’ve ever had.  Not to mention it’s ridiculously easy!

The trick here is to use a box of Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix.  And while it’s not always the easiest to find, our local Wal-Mart almost always has it in stock, so hopefully you can find it close too.

Ingredients

  • 6 to 7 peaches depending on size (4 cups sliced)
  • 3 cups water
  • 3/4  cup sugar, divided
  • 1 box Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 stick butter melted (1/4 cup)
Directions
  1. Peel and slice peaches.
  2. Add peaches to a medium sized pot and add water and 1/2 cup sugar.  Cook over medium-low heat until peaches are soft (10 to 15 minutes).  
  3. Remove from heat and strain peaches into a greased 9X13 baking dish.  Add 1/2 cup of liquid remaining in pot over peaches.
  4. Sprinkle with boxed cake mix.  
  5. Top cake mix with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
  6. Using a butter knife, make swirls in baking dish to combine some of the dry ingredients with the peach juices below.
  7. Top with 1/2 stick melted butter.
  8. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until to top is golden brown and set.

  1. This is delicious and so easy to make. I have made it also using 2 big cans of peaches in heay syrup. All my kids and grankids will eat this. To make it extra special serve a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream to each serving while it is still warm….yummy.

  2. This is very similar to the Dump Cake my grandmother used to make. “Dump” meaning that you just dumped everything in a pan! 🙂

  3. Made this last nite using 2 large cans peaches on sale. Absolutely fantastic! Can’t stop eating this!

  4. Jennifer C. says:

    I made this last night for my family. They absolutely loved it! This will be my go to recipe for peach cobbler from now on! Thanks

  5. I came upon your site accidently, and I am really glad I did. I was looking for a Shrimp Creole recipe and decided to try your recipe. It looked so easy to do. The instructions that are provided makes every thing look so easy and the finish product looks simply delicious.

  6. Have you ever made this the day before you need it? If so- how was it?

  7. Maryann Mousetes says:

    Oooooooooh boy oh boy oh boy! Too bad my monitor isn’t scratch n’ sniff! Can’t WAIT to make this! For those using canned peaches…do you drain the peaches?

  8. Linda Holley says:

    My husband makes a similar cobbler in a cast iron dutch oven and cooks it over the fire pit:

    2 large cans of fruit-peaches, cocktail, etc.-drain and pour into the bottom of pot
    cover it with a box of yellow cake mix and pour in 1/2-1 cup Sprite-7Up on top
    Sprinkle with cinnamon and a few pats of butter.
    Has to cook at least an hour…a smoky strange flavor that has you coming back for another bite then another until you are hooked…delish with vanilla ice cream on top!

    • Cub Scout and Boy Scout leaders have made this since my 53 year old was a wee Cub and way before that. Now he’s the Scout leader, making it for his son’s troop!

  9. Jennifer C. says:

    Made this again last night for probably the 10th time! My husband and I almost wiped out the entire dish in one evening! Soooo Good!!

  10. Would it be ok to substitute the white sugar for brown sugar in the topping?

  11. What can substitute for Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix? My local grocery stores don’t carry it.
