Did you know that you can make a delectable peach cobbler with just cake mix, canned peaches, and butter? That’s right, you can have your favorite comfort dessert with just three ingredients and 30 minutes of your time. I keep a can of peaches and a box of white cake mix on hand so I can make this dessert for unexpected guests or whenever I crave something sweet. You don’t need anything else besides the listed ingredients. It’s time to share my favorite and simplest peach cobbler recipe.
Only three ingredients and 30 minutes of your time are separating you from something amazing.
Here is why these are used:
Canned peaches are essential to the dessert’s fruity flavor. Canned peaches come in two different flavors: syrup and fruit juice. Liquid is required because it will be absorbed and transformed into a thick cobbler-like sauce as the recipe is typically prepared. If you don’t mind the extra work, fresh peaches will also do. If you’re using fresh peaches, flavor the base layer with a little fruit juice.
I use white cake mix every time I make this. Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg are delicious when combined with peaches, so don’t rule out the spiced cake mix.
Butter; the cobbler will stay moist thanks to both the juice and the butter. You can save money by using real butter instead of margarine in this recipe. If you substituted margarine for butter, you would lose all of the opulent flavor and smooth texture. I prefer salted butter because I think the slight saltiness balances out the sweetness of the other ingredients, but unsalted butter would work just as well.
Making The Cobbler (Overview)
How difficult can it be to make a 3-ingredient cobbler? As you will see in the following text, it is not at all difficult. The first step is to place the peaches in the baking dish, along with all of the juices from the can. Once the peaches are evenly distributed, sprinkle the cake mix over them. The third step is to incorporate butter. You can slice the butter or drizzle melted butter over the cake mix. Just make sure it’s evenly distributed. And that’s it – just bake the cobbler and serve it warm!
How To Serve The Peach Cobbler
Peach cobbler tastes best when accompanied by whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. In addition, you could add some cinnamon and serve the peach cobbler that way. While still warm, the cobbler is removed from the baking pan and placed in a bowl for serving. Although we have an article outlining the best techniques for reheating any type of cobbler, you can also serve it cold.
Is This Similar To Dump Cake?
Although both desserts are similar, dump cake differs slightly. All of the ingredients are simply dumped into the baking dish, whereas the cobbler is layered. So, while they are similar, there are differences between them.
Can You Freeze This Cobbler?
This delicious peach cobbler won’t last forever, but if there are any leftovers, you can freeze them. You should divide the cobbler into portions and freeze them separately. Each serving should be placed in a freezer-safe container and kept there for up to a month. The peach cobbler needs to be microwave-reheated before being served.
