What You’ll Need To Make Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix
- Tinned peaches: You'll need two cans of tinned peaches in light syrup. I like to use the slices because they are easy to work with, but feel free to use whatever type of peaches you like.
- Brown sugar: This will help to sweeten the cobbler and give it a lovely caramel flavor.
- Corn starch: This will help to thicken the sauce and prevent it from being too runny. Feel free to leave it out if you don't mind a runny sauce.
- Cake mix: For this recipe, I used a yellow cake mix. However, you could also use a white cake mix or even a spice cake mix.
- Butter: You'll need unsalted butter to top the cobbler.
- Cardamom: This is a optional ingredient, but I like to add a little bit of ground cardamom to the cobbler
- Vanilla extract: This is also an optional ingredient, but I like to add a teaspoon or two of vanilla extract to the cobbler for extra flavor.
Step-By-Step Instructions: How To Make Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix
Making peach cobbler with cake mix is quick and easy. Simply follow these step-by-step instructions and you'll have a delicious cobbler in no time:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: In a large bowl, mix together the canned peaches (with the syrup), brown sugar, corn starch, vanilla extract, and ground cardamom (if using).
Step 3: Pour the mixture into an 8x10 inch baking dish.
Step 4: Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the peaches.
Step 5: Melt the butter and pour over the cake mix, making sure that there are no dry spots remaining. If needed, spread the butter with a spoon or spatula to cover the cake mix.
Step 6: Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the cobbler is golden brown and bubbly.
Step 7 (Optional): Sprinkle the cobbler with a small amount of brown sugar and broil for a few minutes, until the sugar is melted and bubbly. This is optional, but I think it gives the cobbler a nice caramel flavor.
Step 8: Serve with your favorite ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Serving Suggestions And Substitutions
This peach cobbler is delicious on its own, but it's also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. If you want a little extra sweetness, you could also drizzle the cobbler with caramel sauce or chocolate sauce.
If you don't have canned peaches, you can also use fresh peaches. Simply peel and chop the peaches and then follow the recipe as directed. You may need to cook the cobbler for a few minutes longer if you use fresh peaches, as they will take longer to soften.
Peaches in light syrup are best for this recipe, but you can also use peaches in heavy syrup or juice. If you do use peaches in heavy syrup, you may want to reduce the amount of brown sugar that you use, as the syrup will make the cobbler quite sweet.
If you want to make a smaller cobbler, you can halve the recipe and bake it in a smaller dish.
How To Store Leftovers
Leftover cobbler can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave for a quick and easy dessert.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can use frozen peaches to make this cobbler. Simply thaw the peaches before using them in the recipe.
I recommend using corn starch to thicken your peach cobbler. Add it to the mixture of peaches, sugar, cardamom, and vanilla before baking. It will make the cobbler sauce delicious and gooey.
The cobbler is done when the top is golden brown and bubbly. If you want a little extra caramel flavor, you can sprinkle the cobbler with brown sugar and broil it for a few minutes.
No, you don't need to put egg in cobbler. The cake mix will provide all of the structure that you need.
If you don't have corn starch, you can use flour or arrowroot powder to thicken your peach cobbler filling. Simply mix a few tablespoons with a little cold water to form a slurry, and then add it to the cobbler filling. Alternatively, you can try reducing the amount of syrup that you add in with the peaches.
