How To: Best Crock-Pot Peach Cobbler Recipe


crockpot peach cobbler

My husband had a really long week at work and I wanted to surprise him with something warm and comforting when he got home. I saw this Crockpot Peach Cobbler from Six Sisters Stuff and I knew I had to try it! They promised it was foolproof and delicious.

They were right! My husband's tired face lit up when I put this down in front of him! I've got to say that this was ADDICTING!

It even tasted good reheated the next night. You simply have to try it! 

Step 1: Pick Your Peach

This recipe works great with fresh, ripe peaches or peaches from a can. I have even done a combination of the two.

Fresh peaches: slice about 6-8 peaches, removing the skin.

Canned peaches: 2 15 oz cans drained of syrup.

Basically, you need about 4 cups of peaches all together.

Preparing Peaches for Cobbler

In a medium-sized bowl, smother the peaches in 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.

Make sure every peach is thoroughly coated and then dump them into the Crockpot (this one is on sale for $26!).

Step 2: Get a Little Cakey

Pull out a box of your favorite yellow cake mix. I got this one on sale for a buck!

Pour the entire mix over the peaches and then slice up a stick of butter. I put slices of butter all around the cake so that it would evenly seep into all the cracks during cooking time.

Cover the Crockpot and cook on HIGH for 3.5 hours or until the top is golden brown and bubbling on the sides.

Step 3: Dish it Up

Pull out some pretty ramekins or small bowls of some kind. Why small, you ask? Because this peach cobbler is so addicting it requires a lot of restraint to keep from eating it all!

While it's nice and warm, scoop on some vanilla ice cream and watch it melt into the cracks. Oh man, I wish there were smell-o-vision and taste-a-vision on the computer because this peach cobbler is to die for!

I love how the heat from the cobbler meets the cold of the ice cream and melts in my mouth! This has got to be one of the most down-home comfort foods ever created!

Now that I'm done swooning (and wiping the drool off my chin), let me tell you how versatile this recipe is. Keep the basics the same and you can try all sorts of flavors: cherry, apple, blackberries, etc.

What a great dessert to have cooking while you host a dinner party! How convenient would this be to serve at a potluck or BBQ? Want to score points with the spouse? Have this waiting and my, oh my, you'll make one happy camper!

Since the dessert is on the heavier side, I opted for a lighter dinner of grilled chicken and artichoke salads.

The peach cobbler would also go well with chicken ceasar salads or hearty 4 cheese ravioli and kale soup. Just some ideas if you need inspiration. Happy cooking, ya'll!

This peach cobbler is super easy because the Crockpot does all the work. The warm peaches and cake go perfectly with cold vanilla ice cream.

  • Is it possible to use half the ingredients as I only have a 1qt (I think) crock pot?

  • Oh no, I didn’t drain the peaches, is it still going to cook ok?

  • 5 stars
    Just wanna thank you for this easy recipe. It’s been a hit at every potluck! I’ve had people ask me for this recipe too.

  • Do you think I could cut the butter into the cake mix with a pastry blender so that the cake mix is mixed with the butter in small pieces. Sometime when I make the dump cakes the cake mix does not all get covered and I have some powdered cake mix when done or if doing it in the crockpot I will not have that issue.

  • Hello, I am making this recipe tomorrow. Question: will the cobbler part come out crispy or soggy in the crockpot? Thanks so much

    • It will most likely be crispy on the edges and soft in the middle.

  • Family loves this peach cobbler…will be making this a lot for just snacking on…ty for sharing

  • Darla Laminack says:

    Can I double the recipe??

    • Hi Darla! You can double the recipe but it will change the cook time in the Crockpot. Also, you would need to have an extra large Crockpot to do it.

  • I used sugar free pie filling and cake mix and it was soooooo good.

    • Thanks for sharing…it is always good to know when substitutes work well.

      • I love your spirit, Heidi I’m about to make this. Thank you!

        • Ah, you’re so sweet! Let me know how it comes out!

  • can I use frozen peaches, do they have to be thawed?

    • You can totally use frozen peaches but I would thaw them first and pour out the extra juice. Too much liquid and the cake won’t cook properly.

  • Great recipe! Very simple to prepare. I used both canned & fresh peaches and had it cooking in the crockpot with under 10 minutes of prep time. Delicious! Definitely keeping this recipe to make again.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it! It is so great to have an easy dessert recipe you can whip out in no time!

      • I am making this for the first time, I am using peaches I canned myself. I sure hope it’s OK. In stead of brown sugar I put nutmeg can I still use brown sugar

  • Ann Potter says:

    How do you think it would do if I doubled the recipe?

    • I think you would need to make sure your Crockpot is big enough. I think you may also need to increase the cook time. You’ll know it’s done when you can see it bubbling up and it has a crusty edge.

    A yummy variation is a couple cans of cherry pie filling with a devils food cake mix! Or 2 cans of apple pie filling with a spice cake mix! Mmm..mmm!!

    • Yes! I have tried those too and they are amazing!

    I made this tonight using peaches, it was delicious and my family absolutely loved it! It’s also very easy to make…easy to make and delicious too, what could be better! Im going to try it again using blueberries and im sure i will be trying other fruits as well. I can’t wait! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    • Hi Mary! Yes, this recipe is great with blueberries and even cherries! Thanks for trying it.

    • You won’t need it…this recipe is nearly foolproof! But good luck nonetheless. Thank you for trying it. Let me know how it turned out!

  • What is one stick of butter please, in Aussie land we don’t use that measurement but I have seen recipes saying one stick many times. Thank you. Cheers Annette 🙋

    • 1 stick is 1/2 cup or 8 Tablespoons. It can also be measured as 4 ounces.

  • Megan Bickel says:

    I made this for the first time tonight, and i must say that it was absolutely delicious! I had two helpings already (guilty!!!)

    My hubby can’t wait to get home and eat some.

    Thanks for such a delicious recipe!!!!

    • I ate two portions as well…or was it three? I don’t blame you in the slightest! I’m so glad the recipe worked out.
