I wanted peach cobbler. I did not want to peel peaches or turn the oven on to appease my taste buds. I decided that since I had a perfectly good slow cooker that wasn’t doing anything useful at the moment I would look for a recipe for peach cobbler that I could do in the slow cooker. I found several. Some called for fresh peaches or frozen peaches and a box of cake mix. I didn’t want to peel peaches so fresh was out no frozen peaches and no cake mix. The cake mix I was able to get from a neighbor who has a good selection of cake mixes on hand always.
4 cups canned sliced peaches drained[frozen or fresh]
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 box of yellow or white cake mix
1/2 cup butter[1 stick]
Drain the peaches and place them in a medium-sized bowl add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to the peaches stir until the peaches are completely coated in the sugar and spice mix.
Pour the peaches into a 6 quart or larger slow cooker spread out evenly[I use foil to cover the bottom and about 3 to 4 inches up the sides of the slow cooker] sprinkle the cake mix over the peach mixture covering it completely and evenly. Now slice your butter into thin pieces making sure they completely cover the cake mix. Cook for 4 hours until the top is golden brown. I placed double paper towels over the top of the slow cooker then placed the lid on to cook mine. You do not have to do that it will still turn out fine.
FYI: The foil makes it easy to lift the peach cobbler completely in one piece from the slow cooker to a serving dish or into a container that will act as server and storage dish.
