This peach cobbler with cake mix recipe is one of the easiest desserts you'll ever make. Caramelized juicy peaches tossed in cinnamon and nutmeg with a crisp cobbler topping full of brown sugar and butter - it's the perfect dessert. Enjoy this with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and a little whipped cream (my favorite way) for the ultimate fruity dessert!

I'm SO excited for Fall! But admittedly, I am squeezing out every last bit of summer that I can - fresh peaches being one of them. Earlier this summer I got 25 lbs of peaches from The Peach Truck and for a while, we were eating peaches with everything. I mean EVERYTHING.
I made peach cobbler, peach cobbler dump cake, peach crumble, peach crisp, peach cobbler pound cake - you name it!
As we bid peach season a farewell, I had to share this easy peach cobbler recipe with you. Don't fret though! Although I used fresh peaches for this recipe, when the holidays roll around and ripe peaches aren't at the grocery store anymore, I will be using canned peaches. I'll walk you through how to use both in the recipe card below!
Save this simple peach cobbler recipe for Sunday dinner, the holidays, or just for a quick, fun, and easy dessert! The whole family will love it!
Yellow Cake Mix: The peaches may be the star of the show, however, everyone knows that the crust is king in cobbler recipes. That being said, any brand of yellow cake mix will do! If you can't find yellow cake mix, spice cake mix and white cake mix are really good with this recipe too!
Peaches: for this cake mix cobbler, I used fresh ripe yellow peaches (freestone peaches are great here too). Yes Yes Yes, I know that you can only get them in the summer (at least here on the East Coast). I just love the taste! If you're seeing this and peaches aren't in season, you can 100% use canned peaches in heavy syrup. (see the recipe notes section for how to do this quick and easy swap)
Spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger really bring this recipe to life. I love using warm spices like in my cardamom cake. They add so much flavor to the fruit filling!
Extracts: vanilla extract and almond extract add flavor to the sliced peaches for that delicious homemade taste. Don't skip out on these pantry staples!
Butter: what's a dessert without butter?! Salted butter is my favorite because you don't need to add in additional salt. However, I know that a lot of people prefer to control the amount of salt. If that's the case, you can swap out salted for unsalted butter.
Peach cobbler is made with a biscuit or pie crust topping while peach crisp is made with an oat topping akin to a streusel.
This is up to you! I never peach peaches for cobblers or crisps but if you don't like the peach skin, you can absolutely peach them before baking.
Peach cobbler should be eaten hot, fresh out of the oven - but it can absolutely be eaten cold as well.
Baking at the recommended amount of time allows the peach cobbler to thicken on its own. However, if you'd like to prevent this, you can add a tablespoon of cornstarch to the peach mixture prior to baking.
Cobblers are typically soggy because there's either too much liquid that's been added and/or the cobbler hasn't been baked long enough. Under baking the cobbler doesn't allow the juices to evaporate and thicken.
Storing leftovers can be tricky because the crisp topping will more than likely become soggy. If you have any leftovers (I highly doubt that you will), you'll want to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It'll last up to 3 days. You can also freeze it in a freezer safe airtight container for up to three, just be sure that the cobbler has cooled completely prior to freezing.

I can’t wait to try this recipe! Question: if using canned peaches, should they be drained?
Hi! If using canned peaches, you should not drain them!
Had the girls over last weekend and made this peach cobbler recipe. Girrrrrrrrl, it was so delicious. The flavors were so bomb. Shared the recipe with everyone because it was too good not to. xx
This cobbler was so easy to make but so GOOD. I took it to a last minute dinner and everyone asked for the recipe!
This recipe was so easy to make, and tasted like every bit of it was made from scratch! Such as great recipe and I will be making all season long!
The cake mix takes this dish from great to SPECTACULAR. I love yellow cake, it’s my absolute favorite. This is the perfect dessert, I think I found my new favorite holiday go to!
Thank you so much, I'm so happy that you enjoyed it and will make it again for the holidays!
My peach cobbler turned out so flavorful, everyone asked for second helpings! Thanks for such a detailed recipe, definitely making this again!
I went overboard on end of summer produce at the farmer's market this weekend and came home with a bucket of fresh peaches. I already had a box of cake mix lurking in the pantry that I didn't know what to do with so this was the perfect recipe. It was absolutely delicious. We devoured nearly half of it at Sunday dinner. Can't wait to try it with canned peaches during the Fall/Winter months! So easy.
I'm so happy to hear this, thank you!
I loved the ease of this recipe especially because I don't bake much. And it tasted amazing!
I made this last night with some canned peaches. It came out great. The topping was nice and crispy and it wasn’t soupy at all. Perfect recipe.
I love how easy you've made peach cobbler. I always want to make it, but I get hung up on how long the process takes because of making the topping. This cake mix version required little effort with a great reward.
Thank you so much!
