Ooey-Gooey Peach Cobbler

I found this peach cobbler recipe on Baking Like Betty. It is quick and easy using canned peaches and a cake mix. My husband absolutely loved it. He even went back for seconds. For me it was good, but nothing beats a good from scratch cobbler. This one was too sugary for me. I love a good cakey type cobbler with a nice buttery and crisp top. If any of you have ever heard of Homemade Gourmet mixes, they have a great mix for Texas Cobbler. If any of my readers in Texas have a recipe from scratch that is like the Homemade Gourmet Texas cobbler, I will be eternally grateful for it. Now granted, I will want to use canned pie filling for the fruit, but I want to be able to make the cobbler part from scratch. I will probably make this again to make my hubby happy. It is also a good way to use canned peaches too.

Ooey-Gooey Peach Cobbler

2 (15 oz) cans of peaches or 1 large can
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
3 T sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375. Grease 13×9 baking dish with butter. Pour peaches and juice into dish. Pour cake mix evenly across fruit layer. Gently press down cake mix so that it soaks into the peach juice, but do not stir. It is very important to make sure all the cake mix is pressed into the juice, or it will not get “cakey”, but stay “powdery”. Drizzle melted butter across cake mix. Dust everything with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (I mix these together and then put it on top). Drag knife through mixture to gently combine. Bake for about 40-50 minutes or until a golden brown crust appears. Serve warm with whipped or ice cream (I prefer ice cream).

  • This was the easiest thing I’ve ever made! It looked wonderful out of the oven and tastes wonderful! My husband took first and seconds on the first trip!

  • Did you ever find a recipe for a copy cat of the homemade gourmet cobbler? I would love to have that too!!!!

  • What would happen if i used chocolate cake mix?? My fiance will NOT eat peach cobbler… i thought maybe if i made this he might try it??

  • Any idea how to make this recipe so the pancakes are lighter?.. i love peach cobbler..

  • Oh my goodness I have such an awkward story about a recipe kinda like this one. Im not much of a chef, which is why I stick to easy recipes! It goes without saying that my delectable concoction didn’t go as anticipated and we ended up ordering out…oh well, lesson learned (don’t substitute, follow the directions) and next time it’ll be a lot yummy-er.

  • Delicious! We really enjoyed it.

  • This is very similar to a recipe my mom has been making since I was little! We use about half the butter and none of the extra sugar or spices. But we do sometimes add a sprinkle of nuts and/or coconut on the top before the drizzle of butter. Also, we sometimes reserve some of the peach juice to drizzle on top too.

    It’s been a family favorite for years!

  • I love peach cobbler! That looks delicious.

  • I loooooove peach cobbler, so this easy recipe will be a fun one to try! From scratch is almost always best, but when I need a quick fix of sweetness, I always turn to cake mix or those break-and-bake cookies…

  • That is just too simple!!! and yummy!!!

  • I’m a native Texan, and I recommend you visit southernplate.com for a good peach cobbler recipe. She resides in Alabama, but I still love all of her recipes. Also, you could use pie crust as the dough for cobbler as an alternative. Both ways are so good.

  • That does look easy…and tasty too!
