Fresh Peach Berry Cobbler with a Butter Pecan Cake Mix Recipe

Sunday, July 21, 2013
Sometimes great desserts take hours of your time or seem complicated, not this one. This is a summer time fast, easy and as some call this semi homemade dessert that everyone will want the recipe for and it's great. Fresh peaches and the combination of fresh blueberries or whatever kind of berry you like,  make this a special dessert that you will  be asked to make again and again. The addition of cinnamon brings that homemade flavor out and compliments the fruits.  The topping is bursting with a pecan butter crunchy crust that will wow everyone you make this for.  It's our secret, just don't tell them it's a cake mix topping.
They will never know!

1 package 15.25 oz box butter pecan cake mix or yellow cake mix (betty crocker is the only brand I can find in that flavor)
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 blueberries or any fresh or frozen berries of your choice (I used fresh blueberries)
1/2 cup sugar
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. We use to call this a dump cake in the 1970's.

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.
