Spiked Peach Cobbler

Sunday I had a whim to make something with the peaches I got from the Pittsburgh Public Market the day before.... So 2 hours before we leave for our friends I decided to whip up a Peach Cobbler...

I've been seeing a few recipes that used cake mix as the topping for the cobbler. So I came up with my own recipe using what I had in the cupboard.

Tree's Spiked Peach Cobbler



  • 1 box of white or yellow cake mix (I used funfetti)
  • 1 Stick of Butter, Melted
  • 7-10 Fresh Peaches
  • Cherry Brandy
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Peel and cut peaches into slices and place into a 9x13 inch pan.
  • Combine hot water and sugar to make a simple syrup.
  • Add a couple splashes of Cherry Brandy and cornstarch to the simple syrup then pour over peaches.
  • In a separate bowl mix together cake mix and butter until crumbly.
  • Sprinkle cake mixture over peaches
  • Bake for 45 minutes until golden brown.

And here you have it! I forgot to take a picture before we dug in :)

This turned out really good and a lot better than I thought it was going to turn out! I think the brandy did the trick.

It was even better with ice cream! :)
