Have you ever been so busy cooking Thanksgiving dinner or wrapping Christmas presents and cleaning the house that you flat out forgot about dessert? Or maybe you were supposed to make a pie and forgot to make the dough? Now you’re tired, your back hurts and you just wish you had something quick. It’s those moments that I praise the grocery gods for boxed cake mix. I always have a few different kinds on hand and will stock up when they are on sale.

I love, love, love to bake from scratch! In fact, here’s a peach crisp from scratch that I adore. Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that. But, I also truly appreciate the convenience of a box mix. And frankly, there’s something so nostalgic about the flavor of cake mix cakes. My mom always made box mix cakes, so that’s what I grew up on. They honestly bring back lots of memories for me!

This peach cobbler reminds me of bread pudding with its soft consistency. Maybe I should call it cake mix bread pudding?? But, without bread.. I think that might be a tad too confusing. :)

To make this quick cobbler, drain one of the cans of peaches, reserving the syrup. Empty the peaches into a 13×9 baking pan. Empty the entire contents of the other can of peaches (with syrup) into the 13×9 pan. Spread the peaches out evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar across the top of the peaches. Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the peaches and press down with your hands.

Cut butter into 16 pieces and distribute across the top of the cake mix. Pour reserved syrup over the cake mix and run a knife through the mix and the syrup to spread it around a bit. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream, fresh cream or milk.

Enjoy!

    Is there a way to use Fresh peaches in this recipe??

    • 4.1

      Hi Janet. Since the canned peaches are in a syrup, you would have to add that missing liquid. I’m not sure what the replacement amount would be. i would probably use a combination of water and some sort of juice. Peach if you can find it, or apple maybe?

      • Susan Ramsay says:

        Most juices are apple with a little flavor from the juice on the label added. Fresh peaches are juicy. I would cut them over a bowl and catch the juice. Then add some sugar. I’m hungry!

    I have been making a similar recipe for many years and my family just loves it. You add 1/2 cup brown sugar over the peaches and then use either a white or yellow cake mix. I will try this one as it would be less sweet and both my hubby and I are diabetic. Thanks so much!

    Cake looks good but I didn’t see where you could make a copy of this cake recipe. It would be nice if you furnished a recipe with each one.

    This sounds great. Where do you get a French Vanilla Cake mix?
    Would a yellow cake mix do just as well?

    Hi Amanda
    I just came across your website and love your recipes!
    I want to try this for my party this weekend. Just wondering what is the approx serving size for this recipe?
    aalso I’m confused about the cake mix do you make it according to instructions of the box and then add it in..or you just add the box powder mixture?
    Thanks!

    I would like to know if you can use fresh peaches in this receipt? Or would they have to be cooked.

    • 14.1

      I haven’t tried it with fresh peaches, but I would imagine they would cook enough during the baking process so they should be fine. Please let us know your results if you try it!
