Sweet Treat Tuesday-Easy Peach Cobbler Cake

Two weeks ago, I made homemade yellow cake mix. I made that especially for this recipe. I've been craving some sort of fruit dessert. I halved the recipe so I could try out the homemade cake mix separately. When I halved it, I used the full amount of soda. So, in the ingredients below, I wrote half to one whole can of soda for the full recipe. This was so good! And, so easy! It isn't healthy, besides the fruit, but sometimes it's worth it. I look forward to trying this with fresh peaches this summer!


Easy Peach Cobbler Cake
inspired from Mel's Kitchen Cafe

Ingredients:
1 homemade or boxed yellow cake mix
1 can Fresca, Sprite, or 7-Up (I used Sprite.)
1 stick of butter (or less if you want to be a tad healthier)
peaches (enough to cover the bottom of the baking dish, I would use at least 2 large cans, bigger than normal)

Directions:
Lightly spray a 9x13 pan or baking dish with cooking spray. Layer peaches (canned or fresh) on the bottom of the dish in a single layer. Sprinkle a yellow cake mix (homemade or box) over the top of the peaches. Dot the top of the cake mix with one stick of butter.This means to put a little chunks of butter all over the top. Open up can of Fresca, Sprite, or 7-Up half to a whole can over the top of the cake mix and butter. (I think I used the equivalent of 1 whole can when I made this recipe halved.) Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

This peach cobbler sounds delish - I think I will try it for a mommy's playdate/brunch I'm hosting over Easter break! Can't wait! I'm always on a quest for recipes containing just a handful of simple and inexpensive ingredients! Thanks!

Do I cover it when baking? Just getting ready to try it out with homegrown blackberries sprinkled on top!

You don't have to cover it, but if it hasn't cooked through and begins to brown too much, just lay a piece of foil on top, but I don't think you'll have a problem. Let me know how it turns out with the blackberries!!

Hi! This sounds wonderful! However I am a bit confused on the amt of sprite...if I use 1 box of cake mix do I use the whole can of sprite?? Thanks!

amber@This Mommy Cooks said...

Yes, bs.blogspot.com you would use one can of soda for one cake mix box.
