Some desserts are worth taking a bit of extra time to make from scratch — like these beautiful rosette mini apple pies, or a tantalizing raspberry galette with homemade crust.

But… sometimes you just want a quick, easy, and delicious dessert to serve a crowd. A bit of a “cheat” on a from-scratch home baked dessert.

For an added flavor, you can stir a tablespoon or two of cinnamon into the cake mix before adding it to the cake pan.

Then into the oven, and approximately 45 minutes later, you’ve got fresh wannabe cobbler (but way easier than a traditional cobbler). My family actually prefers this cheater version to regular cobbler!

Can I use fresh peaches instead of canned peaches?

Yes! You may need to add a bit of extra moisture depending on how much juice your fresh peaches have naturally. We’ve made this several times with fresh peaches and a bit of water and it’s delicious every time. Thanks for baking along side us. I hope you love is just as much as we do!
