Sprinkle in the cake mix.

Step 3: Bake

Place in a preheated oven (350 degrees) and bake for 55 minutes. The top will be golden brown when it’s done. If the cake doesn’t seem cooked all the way through, bake for a few more minutes or until it’s done.

Serve with slices of fresh peaches, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a mint leaf if you have one. You could also add some whipped cream for some extra goodness. I wasn’t kidding when I said this was an easy peach cobbler recipe!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use peach pie filling?

No, you don’t have to make this easy peach cobbler with cake mix using pie filling. While that is my preferred method, you can actually use thinly sliced fresh peaches or cans of peaches. If using fresh or canned peaches, I recommend doubling the cinnamon and brown sugar to give it some extra sweetness.

When you can get ripe peaches during peach season, they are ideal. However, if you don’t have access to fresh peaches, peach pie filling is the way to go.

Note: When using canned peaches, don’t drain the peach juice (heavy syrup). Pour it into the baking pan along with the peaches. It will help the peach dump cake p

Do I have to use French vanilla cake mix?

Nope! Feel free to play with the cake flavors to see what you like best. A yellow cake mix or box of white cake mix will also work great. You could even go extra wild and choose a spice cake.

Can I bake this cake mix peach cobbler recipe in a dutch oven?

Yes, you can easily swap a casserole dish for a dutch oven! You’ll need to follow the same directions and the cooking time should be pretty close to the same. Keep an eye on it during the last few minutes of baking and add more time if needed.

Can I add nuts to the peach cobbler cake?

Of course! Nuts add a nice crunch to the peach dump cake. Pecans or walnuts would be my personal preference, but anything you like will work. You can really make all sorts of adjustments to this simple recipe by swapping out or adding ingredients as you wish.

Storage

Store leftovers in an airtight container. This easy peach cobbler with cake mix will last up to 3 days in the fridge.

Pro Tip: Make sure that the simple peach cobbler recipe has cooled down all the way before you store it or condensation will form and it will become soggy.
