PEACH COBBLER {Super Easy~ 4 Ingredients!}

Easy Peach Cobbler - Butter With A Side of Bread
I used to make this delicious but way-too-time-consuming Peach Cobbler recipe each year. It was so good, but honestly I dreaded making it! I kept hearing about a really easy Peach Cobbler recipe that uses cake mix and a can of soda. I adore my Country Apple Dumplings that also use a can of soda as the base, so I knew I had to try it. The verdict? Oh my it’s so easy and personally, I think it’s just as delicious as the time-consuming cobbler! Scroll down to see a video I created that shows just how easy it is to make…

{Cake Mix + Soda} Easy Peach Cobbler

  • 1 box cake mix {I used yellow… white, butter or spice cake* also work. Cake mixes without pudding work better*}
  • 1 12-oz can of lemon lime soda
  • about 5-6 cups fresh peaches {fresh or canned} Use about two 29-oz cans drained peaches
  • 2 TBSP cinnamon

Peel and slice fresh peaches into chunks. Drain canned peaches. Place into a 9×13 pan that’s been sprayed with non-stick spray. Sprinkle cake mix directly on top of peaches. Use a spoon {or your hand like me!} to gently press the cake mix down into the peaches. Pour the can of soda on top. Make sure you pour it all over the cake mix, attempting to cover it completely. It will bubble up like in the picture below. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the soda. It will pop some of the bubbles, but it will still be very liquidy on top.

Now preheat your oven to 350 degrees. The cobbler will just sit and bubble around for a few minutes while the oven is preheating. This is good!

Bake cobbler for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or top with whipped topping! ENJOY!

Cover & refrigerate any leftovers.

*Regarding what type of cake mix to use- if you use Spice Cake mix, it tastes like heaven! Omit the cinnamon on top- that way it’s just 3 ingredients and so fast & easy! I’ve used cake mixes with pudding and without- it really does work either way. I think the leftovers are better if you use a cake mix without pudding. Just a personal preference though!

    • I'm sure the cinnamon is just for the flavor – so yes it can be left off. I would recommend perhaps a sprinkle of sugar over the top of the bubbly – it would make a bit of a crust once the cobbler is cooked and might brown up a bit to give you the cinnamon look. (I understand about allergies – mine is paprika!)

  1. Can ginger ale, seltzer water/sparkling water be used instead? <br />Does soda even have to be used at all? Or can there be a water mix made, like maybe a mixture of water, baking soda and vinegar or something like that??? Just want to understand the importance of the soda.

  2. There is a lot of sugar in soda. I don&#39;t think it would be sweet enough with sparkling water. Also cooking with a diet soda would probably have a different result as well – not as moist? I don&#39;t cook with sugar substitutes, so I don&#39;t know what it would do.

  3. If the recipe is, as written, why do folks come here to sites and ask about substitutes so far off from the original recipe? The recipe calls for soda, if you are against or can&#39;t consume soda, it&#39;s not the recipe for you! If she uses soda, I highly doubt she&#39;s substituted WATER, at ANY point! Think a little bit, when you ask questions/respond! Just a little pet peeve of mine.

    • Well I have a pet peeve also, people who are not understanding’ I have diabetes, so I am going to use a sugar free cake mix & a diet soda. Think before you speak or post, some people have problems but love food, so why not do what you have to do so you cab enjoy what other people are enjoying, not do without!!

      • My mother has high blood sugar I made this using diet and sugar free and it was amazing. I myself love sugar and hate sugar free anything but this was great

  4. Instant Tapioca sprinkled with the fruit will help set the fruit. So will corn strarch. Butter can be substituted for the soda… But you need to dot the whole top so when it melts it covers. I use my home made bottled peaches or apples with most of the juice and add the tapioca so it thickens. My favorite is to bake in a Dutch oven. So good!

  5. I added 1 cup of oatmeal, 4 ounces of cold small diced butter, a dash of cinnamon and 1/2 cup brown sugar and mixed it in with a portion of the cake mix to put on top, after putting the remainder of the cake mix on first. The 1/2 cup brown sugar was way too much, but I really loved the crunchy topping! For added insurance, I drained the peaches by adding 2 tablespoons of flour and a dash of

  6. I’ve got this in the oven now. I am trying it with Ginger Ale b/c I don’t have any lemon lime soda. I think it’s going to be great! Thanks for the super easy recipe!

  7. Question? Where you state to sprinkle the yellow cake mix and push into the peaches. Do I have to mix the cake mix first and then place in the pan or do I just open it sprinkle it on as is? Please advise.

    • I just sprinkled cake mix on top and used a fork to just coat all the peaches. I also used a little more than a can of
      7 up because just a can did not seem enough. I will let you know how it comes out 🙂

    • I know it sounds like a lot, but it really is 2 tablespoons! Feel free to decrease it if you’re worried. It’s not overwhelming- it adds a nice touch to the cobbler!

      • I just made this recipe with orange crush and replaced the cinnamon with vanilla bourbon. Love it…just in time for peach season. Thanks for sharing.

      • What if the soda does not fizz. My daughter had half of can in the fridge and did not tell me how long it had been there. I halved the recipe since I did not have enough peaches. I did the recipe but have not got it finished yet. Wish me luck!

  8. I prepared this cobbler last night and although it was flavorful, the topping was hard and too crunchy for my taste, Also there were a few areas of dried cake mix, even after following the recipe as written,

  9. I just took it out of th oven, It smells great and tastes great but it is really soupy under the crust. I used fresh peaches. Mine does not look like your photo.

  10. This is a fabulous cake! I made using a spice cake mix and omitted the cinnamon. WOW!!!! I do not usually write reviews but had to on this one. Simple and easy to make! Thank you!
