Can you make peach cobbler with a cake mix?

Yes! It’s one of my favorite ways to make peach cobbler! Peach Cobbler is the way to use up all of those fresh peaches. 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!

Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix could not be any simpler to make! All it takes is a cake mix + peaches + a can of soda + cinnamon. Delicious and easy peach cobbler recipe!Which Cake Mix do you use in Peach Cobbler?

There are several different options regarding which cake mix you can use in this peach cobbler recipe. Most people use a yellow, butter or white cake mix. Spice Cake mix tastes like heaven and you can 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.

How to make Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix

Making this peach cobbler is incredibly simple! You can use either fresh or canned peaches- even frozen peaches that have been slightly thawed. Spray a 9×13 glass dish with non-stick spray, then add the peaches to the pan. Sprinkle the cake mix on top, then pour a can of lemon lime soda over the cake mix. It will fizz and bubble while you preheat the oven. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top, then bake the cobbler for 1 hour. Top with vanilla ice cream of course!

Ingredients

  • 1 box cake mix Yellow, White or Butter cake mix
  • 1 12- oz can of lemon lime soda
  • About 5-6 cups fresh peaches {fresh or canned} Use about two 24-oz cans drained peaches
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Peel and slice fresh peaches into chunks (or drain canned peaches). Place into a 9ร—13 pan thatโ€™s been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour the can of soda on top. Make sure you pour it all over the cake mix, attempting to cover it completely.
  4. 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!
  5. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the soda. It will pop some of the bubbles, but it will still be very liquidy on top.
  6. 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!

Optional additions to peach cobbler with a cake mix:

I think this peach cobbler is fantastic on its own but adding something sounds good too! I think adding 1/4 cup of chopped pecans is a good idea. Topping the baked cobbler with vanilla ice cream is heavenly, but butter pecan ice cream would be delicious too. Add a drizzle of caramel to the top- wow!

    • 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

      • This is true however I have two family members diabetes and I make many things that are tweaked from the original recipe but I just do it without trying question person. Usually if they’ve tried a substitute they ‘ll mention it. So I see both sides.

  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 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!

  11. Just made this with fresh picked peaches. My fiancรฉe flipped my bet how amazing it was and I loved bed how easy (and cheap!!) it was to make. Can’t wait to use fresh picked apples in the fall.

  12. This was delicious, but is it supposed to be 2 teaspoons instead of Tablespoons? I only used 1 Tablespoon and it STILL looked like way too much-it completely covered the cake. Even the picture you posted of the cake looks like it’s “sprinkled” with only 2 teaspoons, instead of Tablespoons. Just wondering. Thanks for the recipe.

  13. Iโ€™ve made a similar recipe in the Dutch Oven before, and it was delicious, but this recipe did not turn out for us in the regular oven like I was hoping. Crusty with dry cake mix spots, with a half-cooked sauce underneath that tasted kind of lemony and fake. I made it using canned peaches and used a 12 oz can of soda. My theory is that the amount of soda should be increased if one is using canned peaches. They donโ€™t render juice while baking like fresh peaches do, so, in my opinion, when using canned peaches, 12 oz of soda isnโ€™t enough. Have you made this with both kinds of peaches? How did it turn out for you?

    • Hi Melissa! I don’t care for canned peaches so I only use fresh peaches to make cobbler. Instead of adding more soda, why don’t you try drizzling 4 TBSP melted butter on top of the entire dish?
