Ingredients You’ll Need To Make This Peach Dessert

Vanilla Cake Mix – I used the Betty Crocker brand (not sponsored) but as long as the cake mix is about 13 ounces, you can use whichever brand you have on hand. DO NOT prepare the cake mix according to the box directions.
Peaches – Canned peaches in a light syrup is what I used. I don’t recommend going with peaches in heavy syrup as you might find the whole cobbler too sweet.
Butter – This is for the cake mix so that’s not dry. A lot of people simply cut the butter up into slices and place them on top of the dry cake mix, but I like to ‘cut’ the butter into the mix so that it prevents dry spots where the butter didn’t reach if it was just placed on top. It’s a tiny bit more work, but it’s definitely worth it.
Cinnamon – Optional but if you love cinnamon, it really adds a nice flavor to the entire dessert.

Tips and Variations For This Easy Peach Cobbler

Swap out canned peaches for fresh peaches: If you’re lucky enough to have fresh peaches on hand, dice ’em up and use them instead of the canned ones. Just remember, the juicier, the better! If you don’t like the peels on the peaches, it’s easy enough to remove them before you use them in the recipe.

Cake mix: You can easily switch up this recipe to make it your own by experimenting with different cake mixes. Try using yellow cake mix, butter pecan mix, or even cherry chip cake mix!

Crock Pot/Slow Cooker Version:
Got a crock pot collecting dust? Let’s use it! Layer your ingredients just like in the oven version, then set your crock pot on high for about 2-3 hours or until the topping is golden and the sides are bubbly. Just be aware that the topping or cobbler portion of the crock pot version may not get as golden and crispy on top as it does when cooked in the oven.

Storage and Freezing Directions

Refrigerating: This peach dessert will stay great in the fridge for 3-4 days if stored in an airtight container, the pork roast leftovers will stay good for about 3-4 days in the fridge.

Freezing: For longer storage, you can freeze this dessert. It will stay good for up to 2-3 months when stored in a freezer-safe container with a tight-fitting lid.

Reheating: When ready to eat, simply reheat in the microwave or simply eat at room temperature. If frozen, it’s best to thaw the dessert in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1 box Vanilla Cake Mix (13 ounces)
  • 1 can Peaches, sliced, in a light syrup, undrained, 29 ounces
  • 1/2 cup Butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (Optional)


  1. **Optional Step: Cut the peach slices in half or thirds so there is a better peach distribution throughout the cobbler.
  2. In a greased or parchment-lined 9 x 13 baking dish, sprinkle 1/3 cup of cake mix over the bottom of the pan.
  3. Pour the entire contents of the can of peaches in the baking dish.
  4. In a bowl, combine the cake mix and the butter. Using a pastry cutter, 2 knives, or your hands, mix the butter into the cake mix until it resembles a small pea/sand texture.
  5. Sprinkle the cobbler mixture over top the peaches as evenly as possible.
  6. **Optional Step: Sprinkle the cinnamon over the top of the cake mix.
  7. Bake in the oven for 30 - 35 minutes or until golden. Let cool 5 minutes.


  1. If you crumple the sheet of parchment paper first (like you're going throw it away), and then straighten it out, it magically fits into the baking pan corners so much nicer.
  2. You can cut the step of cutting the butter into the cake mix and simply sprinkle the cake mix over the peaches, and then cut the butter into very thin squares and place them over the cake mix (NOT MIXING IT) and bake it that way. This method (in my opinion) is a hit-and-miss method. (Check the body of the post for my reasoning on this).
  3. You don't have to cut the peach slices in chunks, I just prefer to have smaller bits of peaches throughout the cobbler rather than larger slices throughout.
  4. If you don't have vanilla cake mix, feel free to use a yellow cake mix instead.
