Recipe for 3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

To me, there are few things that are better than fresh, juicy peaches! Unfortunately, there are only a couple of months a year that we can experience the joy of peaches. Let's take advantage of these summer months and eat as many ripe peaches as possible.

This 3-ingredient recipe for slow cooker peach cobbler is not only incredibly easy it's also super delicious. You're going to love how you can enjoy the delicious taste of cobbler this summer without having to turn on your oven. The slow cooker can be really awesome in the summer...no heating up your kitchen. All the heat from the slow cooker is really kept to the pot. (I do feel that this recipe would translate well to the dutch oven...give it a try when you're camping and let me know what you think!).

Ideal slow cooker size:  3 quart oval

6 large peaches, peeled and sliced (this will seem like a lot of peaches but believe me, you won't regret it)

3.  Sprinkle cake mix mixture over peaches.
4.  Place paper towel or dish towel on top of slow cooker and seal with slow cooker's lid.  Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or on LOW for about 4 hours.

    1. It's used to keep the moisture level down in the crock pot

    I would suggest that this is because of the condensation that occurs during slow cooker cooking. The paper towel is probably an attempt to keep the cobbler from getting too "mushy."

  4. What about using Sliced Peaches in a can? Those are usually cheaper to buy...or will that make it too mushy?

  5. I am going to attempt to make this tomorrow! Wish me luck although I bought yellow cake mix instead of white :( oh well we'll see what happens and I bought frozen peaches instead of fresh b/c it was cheaper we'll see what we get and let you know how it turns out!

  6. I love the idea of slow cooking this for 2-3 hours. Not sure if I should buy canned, frozen peaches right now as fresh is not in season here.

  7. Hi, I found your website through an ad for Reynolds Wrap foil.
    I made this Peach Cobbler last night.Peaches were on sale for $1.99 lb. Used white cake mix as directed and a Sri k of butter. Cooked it for about two hours, tried some, the cake part was still little mushy, but good. Gave it another hour and the cake took on the more golden color as in your photo. Some of the edges got a bit burnt so maybe two and a half to two and 45 min would be best for my crock pot.
    Had a second helping and this was better. To me it tastes like the inside of a pie. My two sons enjoyed. Younger son had it fresh from the crockpot as a night snack and today we apportioned out some leftover and microwaved 30 sec. Yummy.
    One question. Would this work for apples? I could see adding a tsp of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg into the cake mix. What kind of Apple's would work best?
    I will definitely make this Peach Cobbler again.

  8. Hi Monica,
    Glad you found my blog!
    I bet apples would work! Yes, add some cinnamon in. I would use baking apples such as cortland, fuji, granny smith, rome beauties.
    Good luck!

  10. Do you think this would work by subbing the butter with applesauce or greek yogurt?

    1. Sorry Delaney, but I don't think that would work at all! The butter gives it the flavor and it's really necessary :)

  13. I used a mix of fresh strawberries, white raspberries, and blueberries. Added a 1/4 cup water and 1 tsp. of almond extract. Mixed the room temp butter with spice cake mix. Used only a half stick of butter and half the cake mix. Absolutely delicious.

  15. I've been making this recipe for years. It works with virtually any pie filling. I've personally tried making it with peach, cherry, and apple. It needs the tartness of the peaches or cherries, but apple is pretty good as well. You can use yellow or white cake mix. Some people melt the butter and pour it on, others mix melted but with cake mix before putting it on. I've always just cut up a stick of butter and scattered the pieces on top. This is WONDERFUL in a dutch oven over a campfire. That's actually the way my family used to make it before we figured out it works well in an oven or crockpot as well. You can pretty much do no wrong with this recipe. (I've known people who add nuts on top as well...not my thing, but I know a lot of people who would love that addition). I'm glad this recipe is online, as it's one of my favorites, and it's so simple!
