Easy Peach Cobbler

Recipe by  

"This is a quick but company-worthy cobbler. So simple, yet wins rave reviews. If desired, use 2 (32 ounce) cans of peaches in place of fresh peaches. If doing this, use peach syrup instead of water and then omit the white sugar from recipe. Also, yellow cake mix can be substituted for the white."

I've used this recipe for years and it's always been great. Well, with a few changes it works out great. First, skip the extra sugar if your peaches are already sweet (most fresh ones are if they're ripe and ALL canned peaches are sweet enough). If you're using another fruit, like blackberries or raspberries, then you'd need the extra sugar. Remember, the cake mix has sugar, too. Second, cream the cheese and cake mix together with a pastry cutter or a couple forks until it resembles a crumbly granola-type consistency. Third, melt the butter and pour it over with the liquid (use less liquid if your fruit is really juicy!) Alternately, cream the butter in with the cheese and cake mix (see above). And last--cinnamon is not always appropriate if you are using this with a different fruit. Other options that might sound better to you are nutmeg, vanilla bean specs or vanilla-flavored sugar. Oh, and for a crunchy bonus, sprinkle the top with sliced almonds before baking.

I have mixed emotions about this recipe. For the good side, it tastes really good and although I was worried about the cream cheese it gave it a unique twist. On the bad side it is VERY watery. Also, the cake mix doesn't cook all the way on the top. My suggestions would be to either not add as much water at the beginning, or to mix up the cake mix with the peaches before you cook it. I was rather dissapointed with the appearance, but pleasently suprised with the taste.

OK, I reviewed this before but last night 8/26/07 I made this again and found a better way to make the cobbler. I mixed the cream cheese with the cake mix in a food processor just until mixture gets crumbly. After putting this mixture on the peaches (used fresh this time) I added the butter (melted) over the top of the cobbler. My fiance said that was the best cobbler I have ever made. I give the credit to my food processor. This recipe is now 5 stars!

This is a really great and easy peach cobbler that is a family favorite. I did do a few revisions though. I left out the water and suger all together (I used 2 large cans of peaches with heavy syrup instead and added 1 cup of the juice instead of fresh). I also cut the cream cheese into the cake mix with a pastry cutter (two knives work just as well) and then sprinkled the mixture on top of the peaches and cinnamon. I also melted the butter and drizzled it on top of the cake mix and increased the baking time to one hour. It comes out great and perfect every time.

This was awesome! BUT Im glad I read the reviews before I made it. I used the canned peaches and added the 1 cup of juice. I also cut the cream cheese into the cake mix {excellent tip} and then drizzled the melted butter on top. I cooked it for about 1 hour and it came out excellent. Nothing was undercooked. What a nice easy recipe to whip up in a hurry!! thanks!!

This is such a fast and easy dessert and it is wonderful but I do make it a bit different. We call it" peach delight". We use 1 large can peaches sliced in syrup (can use 2 cans, but I never do), 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 stick butter or margarine, 1/2 cup chopped nuts. No cream cheese. Pour peaches and juice into a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly on top, add nuts over top. Cut marg. into thin slices and arrange on top so that it all gets covered when it melts. Bake 350 for 40-45 min. Maybe more depending on how many peaches you use, just watch. Top with cool whip when ready to serve. This may help with those who thought it was watery. It can't get any easier than this and it's such a nice and yummy dish to serve. Thanks Rebecca!

The cream cheese and cake mix make this recipe rich and delicious. I used two large can of peaches instead of fresh peaches. Also, I substituted brown sugar for white sugar. I blended the cream cheese, cake mix and butter with a pastry blender to make sure it was well blended. Also, I added 1/2 t. of nutmeg with the cinnamon. Very Yummy!

I made this as a last miniute dessert for a bbq and it was amazing!!!! So good our friends offered to "clean the pan" and bring it back to me! Next time I might add a little more cream cheese but the recipe is wonderful just as it is! - Ok I have now made this recipe about a dozen times, I have added more cream cheese (2 pkgs instead if 1) and I have used other flavors of cake mix. So far butter pecan cake mix is my favorite with a light dusting of brown sugar over the peaches. The recipe is great as is but is easy and fun to change!
