How To Make Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
1. Prep work: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180ºC) and grease a 9x9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or butter.
2. Make the peach filling: Pour the canned peaches, including the juice, into the baking dish. Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over the sliced peaches.
3. Add the melted butter: Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Evenly pour the melted butter over the cake mix, trying to cover as much of the cake mix with it as possible. You can use a fork to lightly spread the cake mix around to moisten it all so there are no dry patches.
4. Bake: Put the peach cobbler in the oven and bake it for 30 minutes until the top is golden brown and you have a crispy crust. Serve warm with anything you want, and enjoy!
Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Use thawed frozen peaches with the juice if you don't want to use canned fruit.

- Leave a few butter cubes in the baking dish when you bake the peach cobbler for an extra buttery flavor.
- Serve the peach cobbler with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, and caramel drizzle on top.
