Got some extra peaches on hand? Combining fresh peaches and a cake mix are what make this peach cobbler so easy. Of course, you could use canned or frozen peaches instead to make this dessert even easier. Be sure to keep these ingredients on hand, and you can make this recipe anytime.


  • 7 small to medium ripe peaches (peeled, pitted, and diced)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ginger (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (18-ounce) cake mix (yellow or your choice, unprepared)
  • 1 cup butter (melted)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9-by-13-inch pan.

  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the peaches, sugar, 1 teaspoon ginger and cornstarch.

  4. Bring the peach mixture to a boil and cook for 1 minute.

  5. Remove the pan from stove. Pour the peach mixture into the prepared pan.

  6. Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top.

  7. Sprinkle the remaining 2 teaspoons of ginger over the top.

  8. Take a fork to just mix the ginger into the dry cake mix. Don't disturb the peach portion.

  9. Drizzle the butter over the cake mix.

  10. Bake the cobbler for 1 hour or until the top is lightly browned and the peaches are bubbling.

  11. We like ours served with whipped or ice cream.


  • This cobbler freezes beautifully. Freeze any leftover baked cobbler in an airtight container to be used at a later date. It will keep its original flavor for about 3 months.
