If you’re looking for a fruity dessert, then the slow cooker peach cobbler is precisely that. It’s incredibly easy, and you can use either fresh or canned fruit.
Like most slow cooker desserts this is best enjoyed with some ice cream or cream. With that said, you can have it just by itself, and it will taste just fine.
At the end of cooking, this will be quite a soft and gooey peach cobbler because of the way a slow cooker works, and this doesn’t mean it won’t be delicious. If you prefer a crunchy topping, then the best way to do this is to cook it in the oven and not a crock pot/slow cooker.
Most recipes use a packet cake mix, but instead, we’re going to make a cake mix from scratch quickly. This method doesn’t add much time and is much easier for anyone who doesn’t keep a ton of packet mixes in the cupboard.
The leftovers of this cobbler are well worth keeping and make for a fantastic, easy breakfast or dessert. Just store in the fridge and reheat in the oven or microwave when needed.

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 & ½ cups milk
- 1 tsp salt
- In a bowl, lightly toss the peach slices with the sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

- Next, in the slow cooker, add the butter and spread evenly.

- Evenly spread the cake/batter mix over the top of the peach slices in the slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 3-4 hours or until the cobbler is cooked in the middle.
- Serve & Enjoy
- You can use fresh, canned or even frozen peaches in this recipe. Any of the three choices will leave you with an amazing tasting dessert. This choice is perfect for anyone who feels like a peach dessert but finding it hard to source the fruit.
- If you’re using canned fruit, then it’s best not to add the syrup. Adding syrup may add too much fluid to the slow cooker which will result in an extra soggy cobbler.
- You can add some walnuts on top of the peaches to help provide a bit of crunch to this lovely dessert.
- Reducing the milk in the recipe will result in a less gooey and saucy cobbler.
- You can reduce the sugar in both the peach mix and in the cake mix, I recommend doing this if you prefer your desserts less sweet.
