Cake Mix Peach Berry Cobbler Recipe



This is a recipe rewind I made this recipe a few years back using a pecan cake mix. I tried it with spice this time and wow either one is a big hit. Perfect summer dessert!

1 package 15.25 oz box spice cake mix,  butter pecan cake mix or yellow cake mix 
1 cup butter melted or margarine (I used all butter)
4 extra large peaches sliced or 6 small with skins removed (you can also used 1 large can of peaches instead of making your own  from scratch, (which I highly recommend fresh) then  just add the cinnamon to the canned with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch when you heat it)
1 cup fresh cherries, raspberries or blueberries or in a pinch you can used canned (or any fresh even apples will work or frozen berries of your choice drained) 
1/2 cup sugar or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Optional 1/2 cup additional pecans chopped

In a small sauce pan, add the peaches, cornstarch, cinnamon and sugar. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. I do not add the berries to this while cooking just add after the mixture is done fold in the berries.
Pour peaches and berries into an oil sprayed greased pan 13x9 inch.
Sprinkle cake mix on top and pecans if using. Add the melted butter drizzling evenly over the cake mix top.

 Bake 1 hour or  until browned and crisp on top. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

We use to call this a dump cake in the 1970's.
