You can make this in the oven, our Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix shows you how to use that method. Reason you may not want to do that is that you prefer a super soft and tender outcome, or it’s hot out and you don’t want to make your house any warmer. I get it, we used to live in the desert.

We use a can of fruit here, you could use any variety you wanted to really. From pears to apricots, and even fruit cocktail you will want 2 cans, or mix and match them if you’d like. We have in fact made a Peach Cake Recipe with Fresh Peaches too, which you could do but you do need juice for this to bake properly so you’d have to add water.

How to Make Peach Cobbler with Canned Peaches

How to Make Peach Cobbler with Canned Peaches

The biggest difference between fresh and canned is the texture, and the lack of skin. I wouldn’t worry about the outsides as the heat would soften those anyway. With cake I do like to just pour them right out and have the juices if necessary too. Same goes with our Peach Cobbler Pound Cake.

  • 1 box – this is by far the best cake mix hack
  • 29 oz peaches canned, with the juice
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 c butter cold, frozen is better, shaved with cheese grater

If you wanted to make something similar but with fresh fruit and just the crumble topping you would expect to find in a cobbler I would opt for our Crockpot Apple Crisp recipe. It’s like the inside of a pie without the crust which saves on carbs so you can load up on the sticky sweetness of the slices.

How do you soften peaches for baking?

I have taken the time to do this, just to make our Fresh Peach Dump Cake once. I have to be honest, I didn’t think it was really worth the time or effort to do it especially since it’s baked and the heat will soften the skins enough where you don’t notice that they are on.

  1. If you want to know How to soften peaches at room temperature simply leave the peaches at room temperature for a day or two. This allows them to ripen naturally and become softer. Make sure to place them in a single layer in a well-ventilated area.
  2. For How to soften peaches in a paper bag you just place the peaches in a paper bag and fold the top of the bag loosely to allow air circulation. The ethylene gas produced by the peaches will help speed up the ripening process. Check them periodically until they reach the desired softness.
  3. How to soften peaches in the microwave Place the peaches on a microwave-safe plate and microwave them for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the ripeness of the peaches and the power of your microwave. Check them after each interval until they reach the desired softness. Be careful not to overheat them, as they can become mushy.
  4. In the event that you want to remove the skins and soften inside fruit, this is How to blanch peaches
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil and carefully place in the boiling water for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    • Remove them with a slotted spoon and immediately transfer them to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
    • The skins should easily peel off, and the peaches will be softened.

Peach Cobbler Muffins can go either way. I would try it both ways and see what you think. I bet you will agree with me that it isn’t necessary or worth the effort.

Why isn’t my peach cobbler browning?

With this method the top isn’t going to get as golden brown as if you baked it in the oven like our Apricot Cobbler will. The butter on the top will help the process though. If you do want it a bit stiffer at the top you can lay a few paper towels across the top, then set the lid on to seal and the steam will hit the towel to absorb instead of dripping down.

  • In a medium sized bowl, mix the sliced peaches with the juice in the pan with the cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Mix.
  • Pour this in the bottom of a crockpot (anything larger than a 4 quart crockpot will work).
  • Sprinkle the white or yellow cake mix evenly over the top of the peaches, covering them entirely.
  • Either grate cold (frozen is easier to grate) butter over the top of the cake mix, or lay thin slices of butter to cover the cake mix.
    • melted butter does work but you can spread it better this way so every inch gets covered and the dry mix can get moist.
  • Set to high and allow it to cook for 3 hours cooking time.
  • Remove the lid and allow the cobbler to cool slightly before scooping out so it can solidify a bit more.
  • Serve this delicious dessert recipe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top while it is still warm.

If you want less simple ingredients you should try our Peach Cobbler Egg Rolls which uses pie filling for the center!! Also great with a scoop of ice cream alongside of it.
