Peach Cobbler – Save Room for Dessert

Hi everyone! Welcome to another week of unapologetic desserty goodness!

I have to say that I’ve been sick for a few weeks now and haven’t been exactly inspired to get to the kitchen.  So it makes sense, then, that I picked an extremely easy (but still delicious!) dessert for this week.

And you will not even believe how easy this is, I promise you.  It comes to you courtesy of Bakerella – she’s the best! So I knew that this would work out because, well, she knows her stuff.  I’m not gonna lie, the first time I saw this recipe on her website my first thought was, “Oh, that b****”. Because seriously, how dare she make something like this so darn easy to create??  Darn her.

Your cast of characters:

One box of vanilla cake mix, 1 cup light brown sugar, a large can (I believe it was 29 ounces) of peaches in syrup, a stick of butter, and 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. 

Bakerella calls for walnuts, but I think that pecans and peaches just…go together.  I don’t know – maybe it’s just me! So if you don’t like pecans, walnuts will likely work just as well.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Empty the peaches into a 13×9 inch pan.  No need to grease! Then eat a slice and ask yourself why you don’t buy more canned peaches because they’re delicious.

Cut the slices into smaller pieces so as to spread them more evenly throughout the cobbler.

Sprinkle the entire package of cake mix right on top – no mixing, no fussing.  Just sprinkle it evenly!

Cut the stick of butter into 16 pieces and plop the pieces evenly on top of the cake mix.

Then sprinkle 1 cup of brown sugar on top of the butter.  Oh, lordy.  How good does that look??

Finally, break out 1/2 cup of chopped pecans and introduce them to everyone else.

Into your 350 degree oven this goes, for 40 minutes.

And perfection occurs.  Perfection in the form of peach cobbler.

I wish I had some ice cream.  I mean, who doesn’t have ice cream when they know this is going to happen?  And I know that you might be raising your eyebrows at the idea of all of this working well together but trust me…it does.  It works very well.

Granted, I can’t eat much of it because it’ll make me sick.  Maybe some of y’all can come over and help me get rid of it? 🙂


Oops! That was “Yummy” not yummu, I wasn’t trying to makeup any new “cutsie” names like RR or anything, just a typo!
