In just a few weeks, it will be peach season, and the next best thing to devouring those peaches individually is devouring those peaches in a cobbler! There are many kinds of peach cobbler, but our Texas-Style Spicy Peach Cobbler is the best, hands-down. It’s also the easiest because instead of pie crust, it uses cake mix!
You can throw this cobbler together in just a few minutes – preparing the peaches is the only time-consuming part, and even that doesn’t take all that much time. Besides, it’s absolutely necessary to sample at least one slice of each peach. Quality control, after all.
7 or 8 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 cup sugar (I use Truvia)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup Texas Pepper Jelly’s Peach Habanero Pepper Jelly
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup milk
1 stick butter
What to do:
In a medium casserole dish, melt the butter
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the yellow cake mix, egg, and milk; set aside
In a large mixing bowl, stir the peaches with the sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Pour half the cake mix over the butter; do not stir.
Dump the peach mixture over the cake mix and butter.
Pour the rest of the cake mix over the peaches. Don’t worry if all the peaches aren’t covered. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top.
Bake in a 350 oven until the cake mixture is done and the peaches are soft, about 35 minutes. After 30 minutes, check every five minutes.
Serve hot or cold. Serve with or without ice cream. Remove a big piece for yourself before you let other people help themselves or you won’t get any.
You can even make this in a crockpot if you’d rather not heat up your kitchen. Just follow these same directions, layer the cake mix, peach mix, and cake mix in your slow cooker’s baking insert the same way, and turn your crockpot to low for 8 hours. It’ll be a little mushy but oh my, it’s so good.
