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 is definitely a lot of cake here, so if you want more fruit, you could easily add another can or two peaches.
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 to throw this together at any time for a last-minute dessert.
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 of peaches in heavy syrup for every can of peaches in just juice.
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 crockpot, set it on high, and cook.
Start checking the cobbler after 2 hours on high. Slow cookers can be 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 into 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.
I still can’t believe this recipe worked! It was so easy, too. To add flavor, you can also add cinnamon, nutmeg, or vanilla extract.
