This three ingredient peach cobbler is phenomenal

Sometimes it really is as easy as 1-2-3. This three ingredient peach cobbler is my go to dessert when I want something good but I don’t want to do a lot of work. The three ingredients are easy to find, and you can bet they’re always in my home. I’ve made many variations but I must say, this particular one still stands out as the best.

Three ingredients you can’t go wrong with

As much as I love making things from scratch, I always have some quick shortcut recipes up my sleeve for when I want dessert fast. This particular recipe comes form my sister and I must say, it has become my go to. All you need are canned peaches, a vanilla cake mix and butter. No eggs, no extra flavoring, yet it tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen. I do insist you use the no sugar added variety of canned peaches, or it becomes too sweet for my liking. But if you like super sweet desserts use normal canned peaches. While I have tried this with fresh peaches and other fresh fruits, I think the texture of canned peaches works better in this recipe. I have some delicious variations listed in the recipe notes so have a look!

If you’re only using three ingredients, they should be good quality ones. Use a nice salted butter like Kerrygold. I use Betty Crocker cake mixes but that’s just a personal preference. The peaches are the main focus, and I prefer using the no sugar added ones. This dessert has enough sugar on it’s own, no need for a sickly sweet syrup.

Quality ingredients make a difference
