Easy Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix

If you loved our peach cobbler pound cake but looking for something wit a little less effort and fewer ingredients, our peach cobbler with cake mix recipe is a great option. Using boxed yellow cake mix or white you too can make a fruit dessert that is moist baked in the oven to perfection every time.

Cake Mix Peach Cobbler

This is one of our favorite boxed cake mix recipes. You just layer, pour, bake and scoop it out to serve when you have a sweet tooth. You can change it up with canned pears or even fruit cocktail too! Same instructions works with all different combinations. (affiliate links present)

Cake Mix Peach Cobbler

We are showing you canned peaches here but like I said you could use whatever you liked. 2 will be used, only 1 will have the juices drained. You can find no sugar or low at the store occasionally. In syrup or juice, any of them will do. Choose whichever you would prefer.

Same goes for the mix itself. You could use whatever but white or yellow are the most popular, same goes for when we make pineapple upside down cake with yellow cake mix. Just allows the fruit flavors to shine and not the flavor of the mix itself. If you wanted a Fall flare you could try it with Spice cake mix if you wanted.

Peach Cobbler Recipe Made with Canned Peaches 

We started this whole experimentation process with our dump peach cobbler recipe. That one uses two cans too but one is pie filling and the other is just in the sauce. Gives it a different consistency for sure but both are fabulous. You could swap things around with that one too using peaches and apple filling if you wanted a combo.

When it comes to what brand you buy it really doesn’t matter. Your local store will have it’s own which is always cheaper, sometimes by as much as half. Name brands like Dole and Del Monte are great too. If they are both the same price I will buy the latter just because.

Beyond that you can add some ice cream to the top when done. Now don’t expect to be able to slice and pretty piece of this peach cobbler dump cake up, that is not going to happen. Instead use a large serving spoon and just scoop into a bowl. It’s not supposed to be pretty, just delicious and easy peasy.

Canned Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix

If you love all sorts of fresh peach desserts, but don’t always have them looking good in your produce section this is a close second. You can make all sorts of wonder with dry cake mix I tell you. Just take a peek at our dump cake recipes to see other ways you can tweak a few ingredients. You can jump to recipe but here is a quick rundown.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9×9″ baking dish with non-stick spray. 
    • (I used a round 1.5 quart dish, but you can also use a square 9×9 baking dish).
  • Pour sliced peaches from cans in the bottom of your pan 
    • (drain only 1 can of liquid).
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together cake mix and cinnamon.
  • In a small bowl, stir together melted butter and vanilla extract.
  • Top the peaches laid inside there with your dry cake mix, then drizzle with your melted butter.
  • Bake for about 35-40 minutes, until the top becomes slightly golden browned.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.

Can You Make Cake with Canned Peaches?

Yes!! If you have never made this kind of thrown together dump dessert before you are in for a real treat, any fruit works too. Canned pears would be wonderful too. You see when it bakes it will begin to bubble and the dry mix will absorb the liquids around it. You can see at the bottom the end result where it is incorporated.

Occasionally you will scoop out when done to serve and see just a tiny bit that is still white, no worries. Once you have a bit of ice cream on top and take bites you won’t even notice it. Even if you serve it as is it won’t matter or make you sick since there aren’t ingredients like raw egg or something in boxed mix.

How to make peach dump cake with canned peaches in juice

This and our blueberry cobbler with cake mix are great warm when served, scooped right out of the pan in a bowl. To make it creamy a scoop of vanilla ice cream can go on top and it will immediately melt. The outside will then have like a cream around the sides you can put on your spoon with the cake and fruit all in one bite.

If you do have leftover cake with peaches you can keep it for later for sure. Since there is fruit in it I do like to keep it in the fridge so it doesn’t get as mushy. Make sure it is in a sealed container without air trapped inside. To add a bit of moisture when you’re ready to enjoy it there are a few ideas I might suggest. You can eat it cold or warm it up in the microwave for 45 seconds or so.

You can whisk together some powdered sugar and milk for a glaze, spoon another piece of peach with 1 tbsp of juice from a new can on top or add a Tablespoon of milk to add moisture. I have been guilty of eating a piece for breakfast even right out of the fridge to finish it up. 😉

Cake with Canned Peaches

Can you Make Cake with Canned Fruit?

Can you use fresh fruit instead of canned for this? Yes and no, the liquid in that one can is important to get this made just right. If you make a fresh peach dump cake you would need to add an extra 1/2 to 2/3 of a cup of water or else it would be too dry when done.

The ratio of moisture to dry ingredients needs to be just right for it to work properly. Keep in mind that melted butter is part of that measurement so that will need to be added in a liquid form. You can use a dairy free plant based stick product for this too.

Can you make peach cobbler with cake mix with frozen peaches?

Sort of. You will need to add about 1/2 cup of juice that you would normally have in the cans. You can get this when you defrost them in a bowl. You don’t want to add frozen peaches directly as the texture won’t be great. Once tender make as directed below + 1/2 cup of liquid from the bowl.

How do you jazz up canned peaches

I hope this gave you a great idea of how to use them in a cake this way! With two cans and dry cake mix and butter you can layer them all so that when they bake together you have a moist dessert your family will love.

How to Reheat Peach Cobbler

If you do have leftovers store them in a container with a lid once cooled completely. Refrigerate and then reheat on a plate in the microwave. You will want to add a bit of moisture to the top so it doesn’t dry out. 1 tbsp of juice or a spray of whipped cream on top works great too. Heat for 45 seconds – 1 minute.

I love this recipe! It’s so easy to make and it was delicious! I used a yellow cake mix and canned peach cubes. It turned out exactly how you said it would. I let it cool for about 10 minutes and ate it warm. Thank you for sharing it!
