Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
Peach Cobbler, also sometimes called a Peach Dump Cake consists of a fruit layer that is baked in a casserole dish with a pastry or crust topping. Often times, cobblers and dump cakes get intertwined. I did a little research as to what exactly the different was, but it appears there isn’t much of any.
According to this site: It looks like a Dump Cake is covered with more of a “crust” while a Cobbler is topped with a biscuit, batter or dumpling. Well, whatever you want to call it, are you ready to get started? Here is what you’ll need:
- 3 cans, 15.25 oz each, sliced peaches in syrup
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (or to taste)
- 1 package, 15.25 oz, yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick, 1/2 cup butter, cold
- vanilla ice cream or whipped topping for serving
Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix Notes:
- We love to use this baking pan because it comes with a lid! This way, you can just keep the leftovers fresh right in your baking pan! No more trying to cover it up with messy aluminum foil. Yay!
- I have seen versions of this recipe where people sprinkle some nuts on top at the end before going in the oven. Almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios… anything would roast nicely in the oven.
- I’ve seen different methods for incorporating the butter into this dish. We opted to slice ours up and place them around the dish. *THERE HAVE BEEN SOME COMMENTS THAT THIS METHOD RESULTS IN DRY CAKE MIX STILL ON TOP AFTER BAKING* This hasn’t happened to us, but obviously it’s sometimes happening. You could also melt the butter and drizzle it evenly over the recipe. Or, I’ve seen people melt the butter and mix it in with their cake mix. This gives you a sort of “crumble” and people seem to like how it bakes. Mixing the butter in with the cake mix is your best bet to not have dry cake mix visible after baking.
- This should go without saying, but we highly advise serving this warm with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream on top. But.. .we didn’t need to tell you that, right?

Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
- 3 cans 15.25 oz each, sliced peaches in syrup
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon or to taste.
- 1 package 15.25 oz, yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick 1/2 cup butter, cold
- Preheat oven to 375 and grease a 9x13 baking pan.
- Pour 2 cans of peaches into the prepared pan. Drain the third can and pour just the peaches into the pan. I've had some questions on this so: To be clear, you need 3 cans of peaches total. Two of cans, pour in the pan WITH the juice. The third can, DRAIN the juice and then pour it in with the other peaches. This results in the amount of juice we like in the dish. If you want to add or subtract juice, you are welcome to try draining another can or not draining any cans at all. But you'll need 3 cans total for sure.
- Sprinkle peaches with ground cinnamon.
- Top with cake mix and spread evenly on the top. Or, mix with melted butter and brown sugar before adding to the top. See the notes section above for more info on this.
- Break apart the packed brown sugar and sprinkle on the cake.
- Slice butter into 1/8" slices and add on top of the pan.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes and remove from oven. Cool until warm and serve with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.
