How to make 3 Ingredient Peach Cobbler:

You’ll need only three ingredients: one box of yellow cake mix, 2 cans of sliced peaches in light syrup and 1 stick of butter. That’s it! If you like cinnamon, you might want a little bit of sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle on top (but that’s optional).

Scroll to the end of this post to print out the complete recipe. You’ll put half of the dry cake mix in your dish. Then you’ll top that cake mix with the peaches and their liquid and give it all a little stir.

The rest of the cake mix is then sprinkled on top, and the whole thing is given another stir.

Finally, you’ll melt one stick (1/2 cup) of butter and drizzle it on top. I add a little cinnamon and sugar on top since I like the flavor of peaches with cinnamon, but that’s totally optional.

It bakes in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes- until everything is golden and bubbly. My expectations were pretty low for how this 3 Ingredient Peach Cobbler recipe would turn out, but I was extremely impressed. I usually bake things from scratch, but this cake mix cobbler was a delightful surprise.

The result is a gooey, cakey peach cobbler. If you’ve ever tasted gooey butter cake, it’s a lot like that but with peaches baked into it.

  • One 15.25-ounce box yellow cake mix
  • Two 15.25-ounce cans sliced peaches in light syrup
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar + 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350℉. Spray a rectangular baking dish with nonstick spray (the one we used was slightly smaller than 9x13, but you can use 9x13 if that's what you have).
  • Sprinkle half of the dry cake mix into your prepared dish. Then pour both cans of peaches (with the syrup) on top of the cake mix. Use a spoon to stir the peaches and syrup into the cake mix a little bit. Then sprinkle the rest of the cake mix on top and stir again. Drizzle the melted butter evenly over the top. Add the optional cinnamon/sugar on top, if using.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until nice and golden brown on top. Serve warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream (if desired). Leftovers are also good at room temperature!

Can I use peaches in 100% juice or does it need to be light syrup?


Thursday 17th of November 2022

The syrup is the liquid that makes the cake so good. You can certainly try juice, but I'm not sure of the outcome since I haven't tried it myself.
