Mom’s Peach Cobbler

by


This recipe has lived on Southern Bite since way back when.  Fortunately, as my blog has grown, so have my photography skills.  So, I decided to re-shoot this one to give you a better idea of just how delicious it is.  I left the step-by-step photos just as they were.  Y’all enjoy… 

A few weekends ago, we were at my parents’ house for Sunday supper.  After her usual over-the-top spread, Mom presented several desserts.  Yes, I said several.  In addition to the amazing, expertly prepared Oreo cheesecake, this cobbler was something she “just threw together.”  Well, y’all know what an Oreo fan I am, but I have to say, this cobbler stole the show.  It is, by far, the BEST cobbler I’ve ever had.  Not to mention it’s ridiculously easy!


The trick here is to use a box of Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix.  And while it’s not always the easiest to find, our local Wal-Mart almost always has it in stock, so hopefully you can find it close too.

Ingredients

  • 6 to 7 peaches depending on size (4 cups sliced)
  • 3 cups water
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 (9-ounce) box Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
Directions
  1. Peel and slice peaches.
  2. Add peaches to a medium sized pot and add water and 1/2 cup sugar.  Cook over medium-low heat until peaches are soft (10 to 15 minutes).  
  3. Remove from heat and strain peaches into a greased 9X13 baking dish.  Add 1/2 cup of liquid remaining in pot over peaches.
  4. Sprinkle with boxed cake mix.  
  5. Top cake mix with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
  6. Using a butter knife, make swirls in baking dish to combine some of the dry ingredients with the peach juices below.
  7. Top with 1/4 cup melted butter.
  8. Bake in a 350°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until to top is golden brown and set.
