Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler: Fast Food (Dessert) for Slow Sundays

This cobbler is presented at the request of many following its debut at two of my cousins’ engagement parties. My mother (Nana) also makes this for dessert for family birthday lunches. And we just enjoyed it following last Sunday’s lunch. It’s very simple to make and uses a boxed cake mix!

The way to enjoy it on a Sunday is simple. Cook the dessert on a Saturday (or as early as a couple of days prior). Then, before you sit down to Sunday lunch, pop the cobbler in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes to reheat. Then it’s ready to enjoy when you are!

Fresh from Nana…

: Nana’s Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

  1. Fruit (fresh peaches, apples, blackberries, blueberries) or frozen fruit of your choice
  2. 3 cups sugar
  3. 2 or 2 ½ cups water
  4. 1 box of yellow cake mix (can be store brand, does not have to be premium brand)
  5. 1 stick butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Spray the bottom and sides of a large (at least 9×13”) pan
  3. Peel and slice up enough fruit to cover the bottom of the pan.
  4. Sprinkle 3 cups of sugar over the fruit.
  5. Pour 2 or 2 ½ cups tap water over the sugared fruit.
  6. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit mixture a yellow boxed cake mix
  7. Dot the top of all with one stick of butter
  8. Cook for 1 hour or 1 1/2hrs. until topping is browned; the cobbler will “jiggle” a little when you take it out of the oven; it will thicken up as it cools.
  9. Let sit and cool for at least 30 minutes.
  10. Scoop up into bowls or plates and top with vanilla ice cream.

Nana says, “This is NOT a diet dessert, but tastes just like my Grandmother Johnson’s cobbler!!” Plus it is enough for a crowd!
