  • Canned peaches - instead of using peach pie filling you can use 2 (16 ounce) cans of peaches in heavy syrup.
  • Sliced peaches in light syrup - if you prefer a lighter taste substitute this canned version for the peach pie filling.
  • Box of white cake mix - for the yellow cake mix.

No special equipment is required but I do like to use a casserole dish with a lid to make it easier to store leftovers.

Once this delicious peach cobbler has cooled completely any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or right in the baking dish with a tight fitting lid.

💭Pro tip

It's a good idea to allow this easy dessert to cool for approximately 5 minutes before serving because it will be just too hot otherwise.
