This peach Crockpot cobbler with frozen fruit is delicious! Use any variety you like to make this slow cooker fruit cobbler for dessert. If you loved our dump peach cobbler this is way easier, little to no prep required!
We made this Crockpot cobbler with frozen fruit the other night and it was killer. Instead of prepping the peaches or pears you just dump right out of the bag and layer in your pot. With a simple batter you don’t have to turn on your oven to bake anymore. 😉 One of our favorite Crockpot recipes easy on our site. (affiliate links present)
Slow Cooker Cobbler
This is very kinda’ to our Crockpot apple crisp recipe but that uses fresh fruit and takes a lot longer to prepare. I don’t know about you but if it is the summertime I never use my oven to bake. When we were living in SoCal and it was over 100 degrees outside there was NO way I was turning my oven on. This was the way to desserts.
SO I was all about making any and all versions of our Crockpot dump cake. That one uses canned pie filling, so much sweeter and a bit looser because of the sauce inside. This one tastes more like you added fresh slices of peaches because when they warm they defrost and you’d never know they were frozen.
FIRST – You should sign up for my free newsletter so you get new posts emailed to you twice a week and never miss out on anything! Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….
- This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
- If you just want to serve a few appetizers you should get this one that sit side by side one another.
- I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.
Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉
Crockpot Peach Dump Cake
So we will call it a few different things. A cobbler usually has a sort of muffin crumb topping with oats and brown sugar on top. That is an optional element or could be left off entirely. Instead of using cake mix, a simple batter was created to pour on top.
It is a bit thinner which allows it to seep in between the crevices and bake from top to bottom.
How do you make a cobbler in a slow cooker?
It’s all about the layering. First thing first you will want to spray the inside with some non stick spray so it slides out nicely when done. Then you’ll want some melted butter, your fruit, sugar, and then the 5 ingredient batter that will create your cake of sorts.
Then just cover and cook for a few hours until the cake is cooked thru and tender all the way to the bottom. Note that the edges will be more done than the center, so check the very middle for overall “doneness”.
Peach Cobbler with Frozen Fruit
We are all about quick easy dessert recipes on my site. If it is a weird ingredient or it takes multiple steps to make, my brain just turns off. I’m a busy gal with three kids, a house to take care of and both of us work. That leaves little time for complex anything.
That is why I make a lot of dump cake recipes. Now that my girls are older they have gotten into cooking themselves and have fun coming up with different flavor combinations for these too. I would consider this to fall into that category. All are layered, use fruit in some form and some sort of quick batter.
The 5 ingredient cake mix we used here is very basic, but sweet enough. Almost the same as we used in our upside down cherry pie. That one is fun too.
You can use any type of pie filling for that and it turns out like a spoon cake too. Ok, I’m getting side tracked, sorry I just have a lot of YUM on our site to share…..
Crockpot Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
If you wanted to make this as one of our boxed cake mix recipes you could, I just think this tastes a bit more like homemade. For that I would suggest canned versus frozen fruit because it turns out better. Here are the instructions and what you need for that method;
- 2 cans of pie filling (42 oz. total)
- 8 ounces of butter cut into smaller pats
- A box of yellow cake mix or white would work best
You want to spray the inside of your slow cooker with non stick spray, layer the pie filling, sprinkle cake mix over the top with pats of butter sprinkle over that. If you want to add some chopped nuts over that you could but I don’t. Set to high for two to 2.5 hours until the middle is cooked thru and batter isn’t sticky.
Don’t expect to slice cake mix cobbler or this version. Neither of these come out nicely. Just use a large serving spoon to scoop it up and top with scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Blueberry Crockpot Cobbler
Back to using frozen fruit, because I think that turns out better overall. You could easily use any other type of frozen berries for a berry cobbler if you’d like. I have seen blueberries, blackberries, a cherry cobbler, even frozen rhubarb might be nice. Use 32 ounces of one or mix a few together for the below method.
- Spray the crock pot with some nonstick cooking spray. Pour the melted butter into the bottom and add the peaches and ¼ cup sugar inside. Toss the peaches so they are nicely coated in the sugar.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, remaining sugar and cinnamon.
- Stir in the milk until evenly blended.
- Pour the batter over the peaches.
- Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours cooking time.
It is really nice right out of the pot and warm. If you’ll enjoy it for an hour or so make sure it is turned off and not kept on warm. If you do the bottom will continue to cook and may get too done to your liking. Top with fresh triple berries for freshness and enjoy this cobbler recipe of ours.
