Ingredient Notes

All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card towards the bottom of this post. 

  • Sliced peaches. Use fresh or canned peaches. I like to use fresh peaches when in season, but canned peach slices make this recipe super convenient.
  • Nutmeg. Adds a warm and slightly spicy flavor. Substitute with cardamom.
  • Cinnamon. Adds a warm, sweet spice that complements the peaches. 
  • Butter. Adds richness to the filling and topping. You can use unsalted or salted butter.
  • Cornstarch. Helps thicken the peach pie filling.
  • Brown Sugar. To add sweetness.
  • Cake mix. Use yellow cake mix or white cake mix for the topping. For a unique twist, use spice cake mix. 

Steps To Make Easy Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix

Step One. If using canned peaches, drain half of the juice out of both cans.

Step Two. Pour the peaches to a large bowl along with a tablespoon of melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Fold to combine, then transfer the peach mixture to a greased 8×10-inch baking dish. A large cast iron will also work. 

Step Three. Pour the other amount of melted butter and dry cake mix to a large bowl. Mix well until it forms a crumbly batter. Spread the cake mix over the peaches, leaving bits of the peaches showing through. 

Step Four. Bake the cobbler for 40- 45 minutes, or until the cobbler topping is lightly browned and the peach mix is bubbly.

What to Serve with Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

Serve the peach cobbler while warm, and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for a decadent dessert! 

Recipe Tips

  • Sprinkle the cake mix with extra cinnamon and brown sugar to add more flavor.
  • Check for doneness at around the 35-minute mark to make sure it doesn’t overcook. Cook just until the top is golden brown and the fruit filling is bubbly.

Make Ahead and Storage Tips

To make this peach cobbler ahead, make the peach filling and cake mix topping, store them in separate airtight containers, and refrigerate them a day before baking.

To store leftovers, cover the baking dish with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for up to four days. Then, warm it in the microwave or oven until heated through.

Recipe FAQs

How do I prevent the crumbly crust from getting soggy?

Ensure the cobbler cools completely before covering and storing. Reheat in the oven rather than the microwave to maintain the topping’s crispness

Can I make this Peach cobbler With Cake Mix gluten-free?

Yes, make sure your cake mix is labeled gluten-free.
