Make an easy Crock Pot peach cobbler with cake mix and just two more ingredients - canned peaches and butter! Layer all the ingredients in the Crock Pot and cook for a few hours to make a delicious dump cake like dessert.

Fruit cobblers are easy and delicious desserts to make for just your family or for a party or potluck. They are even easier to make when you only need 3 ingredients and they cook in your slow cooker.

This peach cobbler is one of our most popular recipes and for good reason! It's delicious and easy. In fact it's so easy that you can also make a Easy 3 Ingredient Crock Pot Cherry Cobbler Recipe, a Easy 3 Ingredient Crock Pot Blueberry Cobbler Recipe, and a Slow Cooker Strawberry Cobbler with Cake Mix.

Or skip the cobblers altogether and just go for a 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker 7UP Cake Recipe!

Let's make dessert!

Easy 3 Ingredient Crock Pot Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix

This recipe is traditionally called a cobbler, but it may be more of a dump cake. There definitely is a lot of cake here so if you want more fruit,  you could easily add another can or two of peaches.

Crock Pot Peach Cobbler

You will need exactly three ingredients to make this easy peach cobbler – canned peaches, a cake mix and butter.  It's easy to keep these ingredients on hand in your pantry so you can throw this together at any time for a last minute dessert.

Easy Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

Dump the peaches on the bottom of a slow cooker. I used a 4 quart slow cooker and it was perhaps a bit too big. A 3 quart would be perfect. If you use a larger slow cooker, then add more peaches to keep the cooking even.

You will want to use at least 1 can of peaches in heavy syrup. I used one of those and one in just peach juices. If you add more peaches to the recipe, keep the ratio of 1 can peaches in heavy syrup for every can of peaches in just juice.

3 Ingredient Peach Cobbler

Next, spread a cake mix on top of the peaches. I used a white cake mix because that's what was in my pantry.  A yellow cake or butter pecan would be good, too. How about trying a Funfetti cake mix for a little extra fun?! Any cake mix you think goes well with peaches will work.

The final step is to cut up a stick of butter and toss those pieces on top of the cake mix. DO NOT STIR! Resist the urge! Cover the crock pot, set on high and cook.

Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix

Start checking the cobbler after 2 hours on high.  Slow cookers can be a bit temperamental so it's best to check on food about 2/3 through the cooking time. I let the cobbler cook for 3 hours, but yours may be done at 2 or even 4 hours.

Insert a toothpick in the cake in the center of the slow cooker to test for doneness. The edges will get done first so don't rely on that area. Check the center to make sure the cake is cooked through. The top should be browned more toward the center.

Fruit Cobbler with Cake Mix

I still can't believe this recipe worked! It was so easy, too.  And most of the time I already have the ingredients in my pantry. The cobbler would be good with apples, cherry or any pie filling. You can also add cinnamon, nutmeg, or vanilla extract for a little added flavor.

Serve with homemade whipped cream or homemade vanilla ice cream.

    This one didn’t work for me. I cooked it for 4 hours and the cake still was not cooked through and the peaches were mushy. Not one I’ll repeat.

    I made this tonight to go along with our dinner. Although it tasted amazing it was very wet. I used two cans of peaches in heavy syrup and did not drain either one. Anyone have ideas on how to make it less wet? I was thinking about draining one of the cans of peaches of it syrup.

  9. Has anyone doubled this and cooked it on low? Or even just cooked a single batch on low? Want to make for a fall 4 wheeler ride but will be gone for several hours.

  10. Do you need to refrigerate the leftovers?

  11. Sondra on said:

    I am making my own homemade peach pie filling to make with this and using the yellow cake instead. Add cinnamon a little nutmeg & just a touch of cloves. And little vanilla. It’s great!

  12. Jacqueline on said:

    Can i use peaches in 100 percent juice?

  24. EBONY GADSON on said:

    I have a 7 quart slow cooker, does this change the cooking time?

    • I would recommend doubling the recipe for a 7 quart. Same time. I think the red slow cooker is a 3 or 4 quart. Slow cookers work best when the are 2/3 full and I’m afraid a single recipe of this in a larger crock would burn. But if you want to try a single batch, I’d cut the time down and keep an eye on it.

    We had our Thanksgiving yesterday and I made this with a few changes. I used three cans of peaches (29 oz)and drained one, added cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts. It was a little to sweet (but good) for my liking so next time I will drain two cans. Just had some for breakfast and still good.

  27. Can I use pears i have some. My pot is 5qt

  28. Can I use a slow cooker liner?

  29. Hi, I have a 3 quart,. How would I do the time and heat? Thanks

    • I think you’ll be fine with the ingredients as listed in the 3 quart. Just make sure it doesn’t fill too much more than 2/3 full. If it fill it up too much, it won’t cook properly.

  30. Rachel d on said:

    Yea this took over 3 hours and still isn’t done

  31. Meshalle on said:

    Can you double the recipe and it still cook alright? Having a pot luck at work…. and I’m in charge of something sweet and I love peach cobbler!

  35. Dang. Camille! I’m a single girl who can’t get behind a slow cooker — but, I may just have to buy one to try this recipe!!!

    • They make small ones! 😉

      • Kelly on said:

        I’m currently making a full recipe in a 1.5 qt slow cooker. I only have a 7 qt and 1.5 qt so trying it out in the mini. The slow cooker is stocked to tue top but since there’s no egg if it’s a little raw it’ll still be good. I’ll let you know how long it takes once it’s done.

        • How’d it work?

          • TomandKathie on said:

            I have this in my casserole Crock Pot now…I wish I would have read the comments before I started..Shucks! Next time I will add some brown sugar and cinnamon to the peaches ..that tip sounded so good! I sprinkled a cinnamon sugar on mine before the butter and have it set on High for 2 1/2 hours…I will check it then to see if it needs more time.
