TOOLS & UTENSILS needed to make this cobbler

Pro tips to know when making this cobbler:
You will want to be sure to use at least a 6-quart slow cooker to make this recipe – you want to be able to spread the ingredients all over the bottom of the pan. If your slow cooker is small, the ingredients would be a lot deeper in the smaller pot and it won’t set up correctly to make this recipe work.
Also, I know I have said it before but, every slow cooker will cook differently, so be watching for when the cake layer starts to turn golden brown. The edges might be a little darker to ensure that the middle is done.
How to make Slow Cooker Cobbler:
To start, grab a mixing bowl and mix together the peaches, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Stir everything together until the peaches are fully coated.
Next, get the slow cooker set up and ready for the peach cobbler by spraying the inside with the non-stick cooking spray. Then, simply dump the coated peaches into the slow cooker.
You could even use a slow cooker liner to make clean up even easier.
Continue putting together the peach cobbler by sprinkling the yellow cake mix over top of the peaches in the bottom of the slow cooker. Make sure to cover all of the peaches and using ALL of the yellow cake mix.
Then, take the stick of butter and slice it into small pieces and place it over the yellow cake mix. Essentially you are going to be making a layer of sliced butter, so you should not be able to see any of the cake mix once you are finished.
Lastly, turn the slow cooker on high for about 4 hours or until the cake turns a nice golden brown. Also, when serving it warmly, make sure to have some vanilla ice cream to go with it!
TIPS & TRICKS
- Canned peaches can be used, but you will want to make sure that you drain them really well before using since the extra moisture can make the cake soggy
- We usually peel the peaches before using them in this recipe. The best way to peel peaches quickly is to place peaches in a pot of boiling water for about 10-20 seconds and then the skins will slide right off.
- Want something other than peaches? You could also use sliced apples instead of peaches for an apple cobbler
- Want to add some more texture? You can add chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, or walnuts are delicious!) to the cake mix or sprinkle them on the top for an added crunch
- Some people like to add ½ teaspoon almond extract to the fruit to enhance the taste even more
