My husband had a really long week at work and I wanted to surprise him with something warm and comforting when he got home. I saw this Crockpot Peach Cobbler from Six Sisters Stuff and I knew I had to try it! They promised it was foolproof and delicious. They were right! My husband’s tired face lit up when I put this down in front of him! I’ve got to say that this was ADDICTING! It even tasted good reheated the next night. You simply have to try it!
Step 1: Pick Your Peach
This recipe works great with fresh, ripe peaches or peaches from a can. I have even done a combination of the two.
Fresh peaches: slice about 6-8 peaches, removing the skin.
Canned peaches: 2 15 oz cans drained of syrup.
Basically, you need about 4 cups of peaches all together.
In a medium-sized bowl, smother the peaches in 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Make sure every peach is thoroughly coated and then dump them into the Crockpot (this one is on sale for $26!).
Step 2: Get a Little Cakey
Pull out a box of your favorite yellow cake mix. I got this one on sale for a buck!
Pour the entire mix over the peaches and then slice up a stick of butter. I put slices of butter all around the cake so that it would evenly seep into all the cracks during cooking time.
Cover the Crockpot and cook on HIGH for 3.5 hours or until the top is golden brown and bubbling on the sides.
Step 3: Dish it Up
Pull out some pretty ramekins or small bowls of some kind. Why small, you ask? Because this peach cobbler is so addicting it requires a lot of restraint to keep from eating it all!
While it’s nice and warm, scoop on some vanilla ice cream and watch it melt into the cracks. Oh man, I wish there were smell-o-vision and taste-a-vision on the computer because this peach cobbler is to die for! I love how the heat from the cobbler meets the cold of the ice cream and melts in my mouth! This has got to be one of the most down-home comfort foods ever created!
Now that I’m done swooning (and wiping the drool off my chin), let me tell you how versatile this recipe is. Keep the basics the same and you can try all sorts of flavors: cherry, apple, blackberries, etc. What a great dessert to have cooking while you host a dinner party! How convenient would this be to serve at a potluck or BBQ? Want to score points with the spouse? Have this waiting and my, oh my, you’ll make one happy camper!
Since the dessert is on the heavier side, I opted for a lighter dinner of grilled chicken and artichoke salads. The peach cobbler would also go well with chicken ceasar salads or hearty 4 cheese ravioli and kale soup. Just some ideas if you need inspiration. Happy cooking, ya’ll!
