Recipe #15: Easy Peach Cobbler

It’s been a couple weeks! As of the last recipe, I was a tad behind where I wanted to be for my recipe pace. I knew that I would not be cooking much the first week in March due to my hosting a baby shower on that Saturday, so I kicked it into gear! I did 4 recipes in 3 days…Here we go!

Now, the original recipe was for a berry cobbler. I’m not a huge berry fan, particularly cooked berries. It’s not that I don’t like them, they just aren’t my preferred. (This does not apply to strawberries, which are wonderful in most applications, including being the only exception to my “Fruit and Chocolate Are Disgusting!” rule. But that’s another post…) Anyways, particularly when it comes to cobbler, I am a peach gal. It probably has a lot to do with my southern roots. That was an easy enough switch, frozen berries for frozen peaches.

The recipe itself is easy:

1 box vanilla cake mix

1 can Sprite (I used Sprite Zero)

2 bags frozen  peaches (or berries)

Put your fruit in your dish (I used a 9×13 Pyrex). Mix your Sprite and Cake mix in a separate bowl, then pour on top the fruit. Do not stir. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes or when the fruit is cooked and it looks like this:

Changes:

I added a bit of cinnamon because I was worried it would just be too bland with just cake mix and Sprite. I think I was right. Sprinkle a little in the cake mixture and a little on the peaches for good measure. 🙂

Also, this might be just me, but I really felt that the ratio of topping to fruit was off. I like more Peach and less Cobbler! When making again, I would add a whole additional bag of fruit.

I made this for movie night for some friends. We were watching “Argo”, Matt and I had seen it in theaters but our friends had not, so we decided to make a night of it. That meant they would be perfect test subjects for this recipe. 🙂 In the end, they all loved it. You end up with this insanely light, fluffy dessert! It’s almost lighter than angel food cake honestly. I would say this is a really good recipe if you are watching your weight (particular using Sprite Zero) even just for summer when you don’t want to eat anything really heavy. The only thing that would have made it better (other than more fruit) would have been some vanilla ice cream….(Note to self, stock up on vanilla ice cream in future)

    you need to take a stab at sweet potato cobbler. I have been buying one at the Farmer’s Market here at work and really love it. Of course I was a big sweet potato pie fan coming in so it figured. Hey how’s my mystery Grma’ Lewis cake coming along?

  2. I’m working on it. This is one I have found that is promising… how does it sound to you? Substitute walnuts for pecans?
