How to Make Peach Cobbler Using Box Cake Mix

Using boxed cake mix to make fruit cobbler makes it easier to bake up a delicious dessert for parties and gatherings or for a quiet evening at home. The cake mix is simply spread over the sliced peach filling. Adding butter helps the cake mix to bake to a delicious golden brown, crispy on the top and soft underneath.

How to Prepare Fresh Peaches and Blueberries for Making Blueberry Peach Cobbler

Fresh peaches come with a fuzzy skin—this helps to distinguish peaches from smoother skinned nectarines.

Peaches come in many varieties, including yellow peaches and white peaches. Yellow clingless peaches tend to be our favorite peaches for cooking, making jam, and for preserving.

You may find that it is easier to remove the pit from clingless peaches.

To prepare fresh peaches for making peach cobbler: Remove and discard the peach skin; also remove and discard the pit (or seed), any stems or leaves, and any bad spots from each peach. Then slice the fruit lengthwise and cut into bite-sized pieces.

Sliced fresh peaches are mixed with brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and other ingredients to make peach cobbler filling. Cut enough peaches to yield 4 cups of sliced peaches—about 8 whole, medium-sized peaches to start.

If using canned peaches, then use about 1 (29 oz) can of sliced peaches. Drain the canned peaches before using them in the recipe. If using frozen peaches, then thaw and drain the peaches before using.

Blueberries are the surprise ingredient for this cobbler. I added them once when I started to make a peach cobbler and discovered that I didn’t have enough peaches. It was a happy surprise, since the cobbler turned out tasty and I’ve been making it this way ever since.

Use fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe. If using fresh blueberries, rinse and sort the blueberries to remove stems and other debris that may be in the berries. Thaw frozen blueberries and drain them before adding to the recipe.
