Easiest Peach Cobbler

"This is the easiest desert I have ever made. I had the idea as a poor college student who rarely shopped anywhere but Walgreens. There are, consequently, only two ingredients. Because there are no raw ingredients, I often under-cook the cake so that it is still a bit gooey. Great as a desert or for brunch."

  1. NOTHING is easier than this tasty treat! We absolutely love this warm with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt. I used a reduced-sugar cake mix with lite Splenda-sweetened peaches. Most similar recipes on Zaar have a stick of butter sliced across the top, so to get some of that butter flavor, I sprayed the top with butter-flavored Pam. Lots less fat! I baked at 375 in a convection oven for 25 minutes (no time given in recipe). Just super!
  2. How easy is this?
  3. This was a bit of a disappointment. I checked online for a precise definition of fruit cobbler...and it varies so much that I suppose this is technically 'a fruit cobbler'. Most fruit cobblers I've eaten and made had a bit of sauce along with the baked pasty/cake like texture. This recipe made more of a peach cake. I wish I had at least sprayed the topping with some kind of oil or butter mixture like Chef DuChick did, because I didn't care for the flour like topping on it's top. The Chef said they usually cook it so it is still a little 'gummy'. If the chef would post how long this is supposed to be baked it might be helpful. I followed the box directions for a conventional oven and baked mine 30 minutes. Without the topping...it was a good cake with peaches throughout it...as a cobbler it was not as good as others I have made. I believe this recipe could be corrected however. I will just scrape off the topping and eat it that way. Made for Spring PAC 2010
