Is slow cooker peach cobbler actually good?
Easy recipes like these often cause a little resistance or a raised eyebrow but trust me when I say that this crock pot peach cobbler with cake mix recipe is a must-try. Instead of going with the from-scratch recipe that calls for all purpose flour, baking powder, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and several other ingredients – you’ll use vanilla cake mix, salted butter, and peach pie filling. The prep is minimal and cooking time is short.
This peach cobbler recipe is also versatile in both cooking and serving. Keep reading to see how easy it is to make and the ideas you can use for serving.
- Vanilla Cake Mix: This cake mix is known to have some of the best flavors over other cake options.
- Salted Butter: One sticks of butter will be cubed and layered between the cake mix and the pie filling.
- Peach Pie Filling: You’ll need two cans of peach pie filling to balance out the amount of batter used for the crust. I prefer peach pie filling over canned peaches, or frozen peaches, for it’s already thick and sweetened.
Step One – Spray the slow cooker with non stick spray or rub down with butter. Add the peach filling into the crockpot and spread it evenly.
Step Two – Top the pie filling with the cake mix. Make sure it’s evenly spread as well.
Step Three – Add the diced butter on top.
Step Four – Cover and cook on HIGH for 2.5 hours or until the top of the cake is cooked through and slightly brown on the sides. Serve warm and enjoy!
How to serve
- One of the most popular ways to serve this peach cobbler is with a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with caramel sauce.
- If you want to garnish it with a few toppings, I highly recommend a dollop of whipped cream, a dash of cinnamon and sugar, and chopped walnuts or pecans.
- When wanting to make an impression on guests, set apart individual servings in mini cast iron skillets with the works (as pictured below).
Although this recipe calls for vanilla cake mix, you can use what you have on hand. Yellow cake mix, spice cake mix, and white cake mix are all suitable substitutions.
Yes. If you know how to use them to make a similar consistency as pie filling, then they will work just fine.
It can be considered that since the ingredients are literally “dumped” into the slow cooker and topped with a cake topping.
Store leftover peach cobbler in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Warm in the microwave before serving.
No. The cobbler will not cook long enough to burn or stick to the crockpot. There is enough butter and heavy syrup in the pie filling to keep it moist. However, if you want an easier cleanup, you can also use a liner.
Anything other than peaches and it will no longer be considered “peach pie,” but you are certainly more than welcome to experiment with other fillings such as cherry pie filling.
