Pro tips to know:

Use a slow cooker that has a minimum capacity of 6 quarts for this recipe if you want to be able to spread the ingredients evenly on the bottom of the pot. The recipe won’t work if your slow cooker is small since the ingredients would be much deeper in the smaller pot.

Additionally, every slow cooker cooks differently, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, so keep an eye out for when the cake layer begins to turn golden brown. To make sure that the middle is finished, the edges can be a little darker.

How to make Slow Cooker Cobbler:

To begin, combine the peaches, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a mixing dish. Until the peaches are thoroughly covered, stir everything together.

Spray the interior of the slow cooker with the non-stick cooking spray to prepare it for the peach cobbler. Then, just place the slow cooker with the coated peaches inside.

To make cleanup even simpler, you might use a slow cooker liner.

Add the yellow cake mix on top of the peaches in the slow cooker’s bottom to finish assembling the peach cobbler. Use ALL of the yellow cake mix to completely encase the peaches.

After that, spread the yellow cake mix with the small pieces of butter you just cut from the stick of butter. You are essentially going to be creating a layer of sliced butter, so once you are done there shouldn’t be any cake mix visible.

Last but not least, set the slow cooker to high and leave it there for about 4 hours, or until the cake is nicely browned. Additionally, have some vanilla ice cream on hand while serving it warm!

Other tricks to try:

  • You can use canned peaches, but you’ll want to be sure to drain them thoroughly before using them because the added moisture could make the cake soggy.
  • Prior to using them in this dish, we typically peel the peaches.
  • The quickest method for peeling peaches is to place them in a saucepan of hot water for 10–20 seconds, after which the skins will simply fall off.
  • Do you desire a fruit other than peaches?
  • For an apple cobbler, you could also substitute sliced apples for the peaches. For a berry cobbler, frozen berries also work fantastically!
  • Do you want to add extra texture?
  • Pecans, almonds, or walnuts are excellent when chopped and can be added to the cake mix or sprinkled on top for extra crunch.
  • To further improve the flavor, some people like to add 12 teaspoon of almond extract to the fruit.

Expert Tips & FAQs

Can I use other pie fillings instead of apple?

Yes, you may substitute your preferred pie filling for the apple! Use any of the home-canned or store-bought fruit pie fillings. Simply use the same quantity of your preferred pie filling, such as peach, blackberry, cherry (try our crockpot chocolate cherry cobbler! ), or any other fruit. According to reader comments, peach pie filling is an excellent alternative to apple!

Can I use other cake mix flavors?

Yes, you can substitute a different flavor of cake mix in this recipe. Instead of white cake mix, several people have praised yellow cake, while some have utilized spice cake mix or even caramel apple cake mix. You can omit the cinnamon sugar in this recipe if you use a cake mix that already contains spices.

Consider experimenting with other combinations, such as chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling or French vanilla cake mix and strawberry pie filling. We also believe that blueberry pie filling and lemon cake mix would be fantastic together! Make sure to mention your preferred variation in the comments!

It’s perfectly acceptable to substitute fresh apples for pie filling in this crockpot apple cobbler. You can use the filling mixture from this apple pie to make your own apple pie.

Can I make this gluten-free?

Can I double this recipe?

Yes, you can double this recipe, just make sure that you are using a 6-quart slow cooker or larger.

Can I double the cake mix for more crust?

We haven’t attempted to double only the cake mix. The only thing that would worry me is that, because to the mix’s height in the crock, there might be pockets of dry mix.

Can I use my Instant Pot?

Yes, you can make this apple cobbler on low for 4 hours in your Instant Pot.

Can I use salted butter?

Yes, you can use either salted or unsalted butter for this recipe.

What can I use instead of butter?

Use margarine or any other butter replacements, such as I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, Earth Balance, etc., to reduce the amount of calories you consume.

Can I add nuts?

Yes, depending on the texture you like best, you can add nuts to this apple cobbler. If you prefer soft nuts, I recommend adding them to the crockpot along with the rest of the ingredients and simply sprinkling them on top. Ten minutes before serving, roast the nuts in a pan on the stovetop if you like your nuts toasted. When serving, scatter the roasted nuts on top.
