3 Ingredient Peach Cobbler

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Do you ever pretend like a recipe takes a lot more work and effort than it really does? Or am I the only weirdo who does this?

I have been making this "secret" peach cobbler ever since Ian and I got married. Ian thinks its the best homemade thing in the world.

I always make sure to make it when he's not home and throw away all the evidence deep in the trash ( cake mix box). He has asked so many times whats in it and I always respond with, "It a secret." Well today I am going to share the simplest peach cobbler recipe ever!


What you need:
  • 2 cans of peaches in light syrup
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter



Directions:
  • Pour peaches into an oven safe dish
  • Add entire bag of yellow cake mix and spread on top.
  • Melt one stick of butter and pour evenly on the top of the cake mix.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until top is golden brown.
*okay so this is not the healthiest recipe... but every once in a while who cares! Its worth it :)


If you make this I highly recommend you give it away to as many friends as you can...unless you have willpower to not eat the entire pan of it yourself, which I don't.

Oh I love "secret" recipes like this. Sometimes I let hubby think the Trader Joe's prepared dinner is totally homeade ;)

HazelandMare said...

OMG. This sounds amazing, and also like a recipe I could actually do! I am getting married next year and so I have been on the lookout for delicious "secret recipes" that will impress, and will also not result in me catching anything on fire ;) I loooove peaches, yum yum yum!

It looks so delicious and so easy to make! No one has to know you didn't slave all day in the kitchen! ;)

And to give it a bit of a crunch, I would add some toasted almonds!

heather j said...

Yum! This is how I make cobbler too. Love it.

Gentri said...

LOVE this! I've never used butter in my recipes. We use sprite instead of most of the peach juice sometimes. :)

stephanie said...

That is genius! I'm for sure going to make this as soon as it gets a little chilly around here. Thanks for sharing!

natasha {schue love} said...

What a SMART idea! Love little shortcuts like that and no one is the wiser. I did that recently for cupcakes (store bought mix) but homemade frosting...everyone loved them and would have have never known the difference!

Chelsei said...

I'm going to try this immediately! Thanks for sharing!

Ashley from Sloanbook said...

Um I need to try this because 1) It is my husbands favorite dessert, well one of em. He loves peaches and 2) I made this the other day (boxed, yes I admitted it!!!) and it was good but this would be better!!!

Ashley from Sloanbook said...

Like everything was boxed. Do you know what I mean ha?

This recipe is very similar to something my fiance' and I make all the time called Easy Pie. It was his mom's recipe, but we stole it ;) It's so easy and so delicious!

This looks so good!

Tabitha Lynn said...

Yum so trying this, thank you

Simply Mily said...

OMG I'm so making this tonight =)

Andrea @ Strawberry Chic said...

Funny you posted this, my husband is making almost the same thing tonight but in a dutch oven (I guess it's for a merit-badge that his scout troop is trying to sign off). The only difference is that he uses Sprite instead of butter (i'm a little skeptical)...but if he has any left over I will let you know how it tastes!

Leslie *Fresh Out of Lemons* said...

Oh, that looks like sweet happiness!

amanda brooke said...

Yum! I make something similar using cherries and love how simple they are to make. Recipes like these are especially helpful when busy being mum, working, cleaning and homemaking!

2manyironsinthefire said...

WOW, you have so many followers Lindsay.... I have also been making that same recipe for about 15 years...I use comstock canned pie fillings to...My favorite is the Black Cherry one...but other good ones are apple and sweet cherry and during the holiday's they have cranberry too..all are yummy..

Sara Jahan said...

Um, Lindsay. WHY!? I am going to want to make this all of the time now:) This looks so easy and delish!
Xoxo,
Sara

YUM!!! I loveeee acting like recipes are much harder than they actually are, just to get a little extra oohs and ahhs haha. This looks so good! And a great end of summer/ early fall dish - I can't get enough of cobblers!

www.TwoFriendsTwoCities.com said...

Love it! In Texas we call this a Dump Cake and usually make it with a cherry and pineapple combo. It is referred to as a dump cake simple because things are dumped n the dish in layers and then baked. I'll have to try it with peaches this time!

Dee Dee Harris said...

Yummy! Made it before and it is gooood!

BombCherry said...

I loved this recipe but it came out terrible for me. I accidentally made it like a cake with adding water eggs and oil to the cake batter. I should have just used the cake batter and not the other ingredients. I will hopefully try this recipe again though.

Gretchen Phillips said...

I didn't have a yellow cake mix, I only had a butter pecan,i got it in the oven now. got my fingers crossed hope it turns out good still
