Ingredients in Homemade Crockpot Peach Cobbler
- Peaches – If peaches are in season, this recipe works best with juicy, ripe, fresh ones! If you can’t find fresh peaches, frozen or canned peaches will also work. Just be sure to remove any excess juice or water from them.
- Lemon Juice – Lemon enhances the flavor of the peaches, adding acidity and a bright, fresh flavor.
- Brown Sugar – To sweeten the peach mixture. Taste your peaches before making this recipe. If they aren’t super sweet, you can add more sugar to the mixture, up to a total of ½ cup.
- Cinnamon – This spice pairs wonderfully with peaches to add warmth and a wonderful scent to the dish as it’s cooking in the crockpot.
- Cake Mix – Your favorite boxed vanilla cake mix is the main ingredient for the cobbler topping. You don’t need to mix it into a batter, so disregard the instructions on the back of the box.
- Butter and Sugar– Unsalted butter is melted and then mixed with the cake mix and a bit of extra granulated sugar to create a sweet, buttery, and delicious peach cobbler topping.

Tips for Making This Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler Recipe
- Use quality ingredients – When making homemade desserts, even ones with shortcuts like this one, you’ll want to make sure you are using high-quality ingredients for the best outcome.
- Make this recipe super easy – Instead of making a fresh peach filling, use a can of peach pie filling instead! The result is slightly less homemade but still very tasty.
- To make clean-up easy, use a crock pot liner to cover the pot.
- Allow the cobbler to rest with the lid off for about 10 minutes before serving. This helps the filling to thicken and keeps it from being so hot that it burns your mouth!
How to Store Leftovers
Keep leftover crockpot peach cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. It’s best reheated in the microwave.
Crockpot Peach Cobbler Variations
This concept of making a cobbler in the crockpot can be adjusted to use other types of fruit! Try apples, plums, pears, nectarines, or even cherries in place of the peaches. Some people enjoy pecans with peach cobbler. Sprinkle a handful of toasted chopped nuts over the cake mix and sugar for an extra crunchy topping.
