BEST COBBLER YOU’VE EVER HAD

August 6, 2012

Okay, okay. David is saying I can’t tell you it’s the best cobbler you’ve ever had. I’ll just tell you it’s the best cobbler he and I’ve ever had.

(But if you have eaten a better one, you better be sending your girl Rach the recipe! Don’t hold out on me).

(But as I said before, I’m pretty confident it doesn’t exist).

I didn’t even mention how versatile this dish is. Try with other fruits – perhaps blackberries, lemon pie filling, or something crazy like pineapple.

    peach cobbler recipe

  • It was very easy. However, I did not like it. Had to cook much longer than recipe suggests because the 7-up was still floating on top and the cake mix was still dry and powdery. When I finally took it out of the oven, there was still some dry cake mix on the top. It had an unappetizing appearance and it had an artificial taste. But what should I expect when cutting corners by using a packaged cake mix.

  • Phyllis

    I didn’t have a yellow cake mix on hand, so i usesd a lemon cake mix instead. YUMMMY!

    I plan on using the lemon cake mix again, but using blueberries instead of peaches, or even a combination of both.

    Actually, I wonder if the same technique would work with a chocolate/fudge cake mix, and cherries…or cherry pie filling? Or……pineapple cake mix with crushed pineapple, or almond cake mix with apple filling? I’m just say’n!!

  • Omg! This is the best cobbler I have ever had or made! So yummy I’m making a second one with the rest of the fresh peaches from Palisade, Colorado that I bought at a farmers market. My husband loved this cobbler. I live in Colorado so we have awesome peaches to work with. I’m going to make it with 2 cake mixes this time to make it a deeper cobbler. Hopefully it comes out right, it should as I will just double everything in recipe and bake a little longer. Thank you for sharing this recipe with everyone , Cheryl Deedon

    5 stars…Yum! I just made this. I’ve been craving peach cobbler lately. I made it in an 8×8 glass dish using a gluten free boxed cake and added blackberries. Oh myyyy! Seriously good! It’s not as good as grandmas but this recipe is fan-freakin-tastic! The dream cheese was a lot more mild than u was expecting. Nice subtle addition. I added 5 mins to crust only bake and 10 mins to the total bake time. Awesome perfection.

  • Jackye

    I substituted brown sugar for the white and mixed 1/2cup granola with topping before baking it was great also I used 6 fresh peaches

  • Lucy

    That was so yummy! Thank you for sharing! I used two fresh peaches and two fresh nectarines. It was super easy!

  • cheryl chase

    I made this with canned peaches and it was delicious

  • Claudia

  • matthew

  • matthew

  • Kathy

    OMG you were right the Best Cobbler I have ever eaten or made! I want to try it with pineapple as suggested and put brown sugar in the cream cheese mixture! This is going to be a summer family FAVE!!! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Mine is in the oven right now. Can’t wait to try it thanks for the recipe.

  • Laura H

    Thank you for an excellent recipe!! I used 4 cups of fresh blackberries and sprinkled them with a little extra cinnamon sugar- fantastic!

  • Nita

  • Melanie

    Can’t wait to try this again actually following the recipe!

  • Melanie

    I made a big boo boo! Oops. I put the cream cheese in the cake mix with the butter, whoops, well it came out more like a cobbler. For fruit I used mand oranges, pineapple, and strawberries (what I had on hand). I also used stevia in the raw instead of sugar. Thus far it looks great!

    • Doug

      Hey Melanie this is a peach cobbler recipe stevia does not cook right in any recipe irregardless of what anyone says. Blueberries and anything else is just that a berry cobbler cream cheese also does not belong in a traditional cobbler period. also yellow cake is just that too a yellow cake with peaches in it. Sorry it may be good but not a cobbler. maybe a gobble up er! something else. Rate is a 1 for effort. Ingredients for cobbler is Milk, butter, Flour, Cinnamon, nutmeg, Brown sugar and white sugar, vanilla, greased pan or cooking Bowl. Pour the peaches over the mixture and do notstirand you will have a great peach cobbler.

  • The chicken was so good. I not fond of chicken but this I will make again.

      What r u talking aboit…This is peach cobbler

  • Mandy

    I have made this recipe a few times now! I did quite a bit of canning last year and have so many cans of peaches and this recipe is a perfect way to use them. It’s so easy and it’s made using ingredients that I usually always have in my pantry and fridge. My husband loved this recipe as well!

  • I can’t wait to try this… Hopefully tomorrow… I am a true southern girl and was raised on peach cobbler… My most favorite dessert. I can’t wait to try and give you my honest feedback… I will return.. The cream cheese is what I am most interested in…
    thanks for posting!

  • Just made this yesterday and it is delicious! It got rave reviews from all my friends too. I was happy to find this recipe. I had a peaches and cream cobbler a few years back and have tried a few recipes for it, but this is the closest and yummiest.

  • Rach, I simply LOVE, LOVE All of you recipes especially this one! I haven’t made it myself as of yet but my girlfriend has when she had a group of us all over house. And it came out delicious that now I have to make it myself. My girlfriend said it was the easiest thing to make also. Tell your it is the Best of the Best. Lol
    Keep me posted on any new things that you make I’m always looking for something new. <3 <3

  • Lea

    This is a great cobbler. I ran across the recipe when making dinner and happened to have some fresh/frozen peaches in the freezer. I didn’t have any cream cheese on hand, so I pureed cottage cheese as a replacement, also used egg beaters instead of regular eggs. My Mom was in town and is on weight watchers, so the substitutions helped to “lighten it up” for her.

    This is a keeper!

  • This peach cobbler is AMAZING!!!!! I just used some extra vanilla and a pinch of salt. It turned out better then I expected.

  • Veronica

    I tried your recipe and it was absolutely delicious. It was a little too sweet for some of the taste testers, yet they couldn’t stop eating it. Lol! I wanted to ask if i used less sugar will it alter the taste? And do you recomnend using brown sugar or substitutes like truvia or splenda ?

  • The peach cobbler recipe was to die for! Thank’s so much. I have a freezer full of home grown peaches just waiting…

  • Rita

    Hi this looks amazing! I’m pretty new to baking and I was wondering when you say “vanilla” do you mean extract? Or is that not the same thing lol

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yep!

  • Ayla

    I loved this recipe! What are your thoughts on using other varieties of cake mix like chocolate or spice – do you think it would be basically the same (other than flavor of course)?

    Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz

      That could be really yummy with different fruits!

  • Moni Faair

    This recipe was wonderful. My hudband never eats sweets or cheese he had 4 servings. One daughter told me she does not eat peaches the other told me she does not eat cobbler. The peach cobbler didnt last 24hrs..
    Best recipe ever…
    This is now a staple in my home.

  • Therese

    I made this for a gathering and everyone enjoyed it. I used less sugar and crushed pineapples instead of peaches. It was delicious! Thank you so much!

  • Kay Malan

    This made a really great cobbler! I used fresh peaches and made it in two deep-dish pie plates and it came out wonderfully. I didn’t have ice cream but poured a tiny bit of milk on it, while it was still hot, and it was very good.
    Thanks for the easy recipe

  • WOW!!! Seriously, my family LOVED this!! My husband said “Wow, this really is the best cobbler I have ever had!” You named it correctly that is for sure. I made ours with Fresh Peaches and it really was fabulous! We will be making this again, that is for sure.
    Thanks a bunch!

  • Fritz

    Made this using a gluten free cake mix and everyone loved it… There was nothing left!!! Yummy,,,,,!!
    Fritz

  • Robin

    YES I TOO RESERVED ABOUT 3/4 CUP OF RESERVED CRUMBLY. YUMMY YUMMY

  • Robin

    ABOSOLUTELY THE BEST EVER RACHEL! SECOND TIME I MADE IT AND AGAIN A HUGE, HUGE HIT! THANK YOU! I USE FRESH FRUIT BLENDED 1 APPLE, 2 PEACHES AND SMALL PKG OF BLUEBERRIES. ALSO TRIED BROWN SUGAR INSTEAD OF WHITE.

  • kira

    I love this! I’m not sure if I didn’t measure right, but saving a half cup cake mixture wasn’t enough to cover. Ill save more next time.

  • Cindy

    Delicious!!!!

  • How would you make this with fresh apples. How many would you use and where they are hard than peaches and need more time to cook would this work?

  • HANDS DOWN best cobbler!! My 23-year-old self had grannies ripping up their recipes over this baby!
