Ninja Foodi Peach Cobbler

We made this dump peach cobbler quite a while ago but everyone asked how they could do it in their multi cooker too. SO we are here to help!

You can make it as an easy Ninja Foodi recipe or in your Crockpot Express too. Any brand works really. Yes we love fresh fruit like we used in our air fryer peaches but you can’t always find those year round.

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have (a 6 quart) and use for all recipe creations.

Using canned peaches it is perfect to make during the Fall as well as the Summertime. We sure have a sweet tooth over here, can you tell?

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this peach cobbler recipe:

  1. I HIGHLY suggest using a non stick pot for this and all other recipes
  2. Canned peach slices
  3. Cake mix
    1. vanilla or spice cake mix work well, white is featured here
    2. we used spice to make our Instant Pot dump cake with apples if you’d like to try that as well
  4. Butter
  5. Cinnamon
  6. Sugar
  7. Cornstarch

May want some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to serve on top too.

Pressure Cooker Cobbler

I have made this a few times using different cake mixes and it’s fun to mix it up a bit. I might say white is our favorite though. You could use white, yellow or spice with this fruit. Mixed fruit cocktail could be used instead with strawberry or even a lemon version.

  • Like I said above in the ingredient list, I REALLY encourage you to buy an Instant Pot non stick pot. Not only will it eliminate the messy clean up with your pressure cooker recipes, but it will also help avoid the burn notice.

Many times your pot will trigger a false notice and ever since I bought this ceramic pot I haven’t ever experienced that. It also makes it so that you don’t have to add any oil really when sauteeing meats.

Instant Pot Peach Dump Cake

This is essentially a pressure cooker peach dump cake. If you’re not familiar with this type of dessert, it is well shall I say messy. Don’t expect to slice it, you just scoop into a bowl and enjoy as is.

Like our popular cherry pineapple dump cake recipe, it won’t be super pretty served like a cake. Don’t worry about that!! Just follow these simple instructions:

  • Drain the juice from your cans of peaches and pour into your pot.
  • Pour sugar on top of the peaches. (could add a bit of brown sugar too)
  • Whisk together the cornstarch and water until smooth, pour that in too.
  • Now you’re going to make a cobbler crumble for the top with melted butter and cake mix.
  • Sprinkle that on top of your fruit.
  • Select high pressure cooking for 10 minutes followed by a quick release.
  • Serve immediately for best results.

If you love peaches and apples, here are a few other desserts you should try. Our peach angel food cake has been a hit with everyone who’s made it.

What’s the difference between a cobbler and a crisp?

They really are quite similar with a few variations. Cobbler is typically is a baked fruit dessert with a thick biscuit or pie dough topping. A crumble is similar but is a baked fruit dessert with a layer of topping

  • Really I kinda’ call them what I call them. 😉 They’re kinda’ one in the same for us, but I think cobblers are a bit sweeter and easier to throw together.

Can you prepare peach cobbler ahead of time?

If you’re making fresh peach dump cake in the oven I actually prefer it made earlier in the day. It gives the dish a bit of time to sit and thicken/firm up.

With this Instant Pot peach cobbler I would suggest serving it warm and fresh though, especially if you aren’t using a non stick pot. It will be a nightmare if you use the pot it came with because it will stick like mad as it sits.

Can you leave peach cobbler out overnight?

If you’re going to eat it within a day of making it, you don’t need to refrigerate it. Just spoon it into a dish like this, cover it, and leave it at room temperature instead. Refrigerating it will dry the dish out a bit, but it is totally up to you really.

Can peach cobbler be reheated?

It really is best enjoyed warm, right after it’s baked. If you’re reheating put into a microwave safe dish. Heat in 30 second increments stirring in between until it is as hot as you’d like.

To reheat in the oven, remove it from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until warmed through.

  • Spray inside of pressure cooker pot (better yet use a non stick pot, link in this post) Melt butter and set aside. Pour drained peach slices into pressure cooker pot and sprinkle sugar over them.
  • Whisk cornstarch and water in a bowl until smooth, pour this over the peaches too.
  • In a bowl combine cake mix with cinnamon, and then drizzle in melted butter. Use a fork to combine them so dry mix becomes more of a crumble. Add 1 tbsp milk in and use fork to combine well to create damp crumble (like coffee cake topping). Use 2nd tbsp if necessary.
  • Sprinkle this crumble over your peaches until they are covered and crumble is evenly distributed across fruit. Close lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 10 minutes.
  • Do a quick release and spoon into bowls topped with ice cream or whipped cream.

I also got the burn notice…. I’m currently making it right now. Got one burn notice. Turned it off and then back on and started again. We will see if this ruins it or not, but I’m dying to eat it because it smells so good!


Tuesday 21st of December 2021

Ok it says to add water. Now what???


Sunday 10th of January 2021

Used a non-stick pot. Got the burn notice twice in a row. Left it in anyway, and kept trying off/on. It finally did cook and go through the 10 minute cycle. It was very tasty.

Got the burn notice on my pot.... followed exactly


Friday 9th of October 2020

Will it work in a 7 inch nonstick cake pan, on a sling with water in bottom of my pot?
