Super Easy Peach Cobbler

When I was a boy scout, we used to go camping every month. It was on these camping trips that I really began to learn about how to cook. We ate really well on our camping trips. Our meals consisted of much more than the usual hot dogs and hamburgers. One of the most extravagant meals I remember featured cornish game hens roasted inside of honeydew melons. Some of my most favorite memories from my scouting days involve sitting around the campfire while eating warm peach cobbler. We used to make the cobbler in dutch ovens covered with hot coals, but you can easily make them in a casserole dish in the oven. You won't believe how good this cobbler tastes. And it only consists of 4 ingredients.


2 cans (15 oz) of peaches, drained
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 box of yellow cake mix
1/2 stick of butter
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Butter the bottom and sides of a casserole dish or pie pan. Place the remaining butter in microwave safe bowl and nuke it until it's melted.

3) Spread the peaches across the bottom of the buttered casserole dish.

4) Sprinkle cinnamon over the peaches.

5) Sprinkle the cake mix across the peaches. Break up any large clumps, BUT DO NOT STIR THE CAKE MIX INTO THE PEACHES.

6) Drizzle the melted butter across the cake mix.

7) Bake for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Serve with vanilla ice cream if you like. (I like.)

Ed's Note: In step 5, it's very important that you do not stir the cake mix into the peaches or else you'll end up with soggy peach cobbler. (And who likes that?) Just pour the cake mix (straight out of the box) on top of the peaches. It will turn into a nice, crumbly crust.

This Recipe is kinda' like what we call a "Dump Cake"..but mine goes like this..You put drained pineapple(canned)and then put a can of cherry pie filling on top of that and then sprinkle a dry cake mix on top(my fav for this is yellow)no lumps though! do not mix! then slice horizontal long strips of stick margarine or butter all on can leave some spaces between stips and then (my fav is pecans)you can sprinkle nuts(optional)all over the top and cook..preheated oven @350* until knife(or toothpick) in center comes a reg cake..about 40-50 mins...about..its great and you can vary this and use a can of pumpkin mix and omit the fruit and everything else is the same and put whipped cream on top!! It's REALLY GOOD!! email me and let me know if anyone tries these

Dragonladyevelyn - Thanks for sharing your dump cake recipe. On camping trips, we used to use cherry filling to make cherry cobbler and blueberry filling to make blueberry cobbler. And the pumpkin is a great suggestion, too.

An even easier way to make cobbler is putting in pie filling, dumping the cake mix on top and using about 6 oz. of lemon-lime soda instead of butter.
