Peach Cobbler Mug Cake {5 Minute Recipe}

Yesterday I made a peach cobbler, from scratch. Fresh peaches, the homemade cake and all of that. After taking pictures then trying it, I decided I didn’t like it. So it’s not blog approved.

The texture was just strange. Slightly gooey (which is okay) but then there were these chewy portions that were just odd. I guess I’ve never really been a big fan of the texture of a peach cobbler, let me rephrase that I don’t like the texture of some peach cobblers

My brother came up a few weeks ago and he made a dutch oven blueberry peach cobbler that was soooo good and actually had the perfect texture! He used a cake mix. Thinking of that made me realize I could do a quicker version that was similar but make it in the microwave, in a mug. I’m so glad I decided to try it. I’m in love with this mug cake. It’s definitely one of my favorites!

According to the photos it basically looks like a peach cobbler smoothie or something, let’s just say it’s hard to make a mug cake look pretty but there is definitely cake in there.

For some reason it just doesn’t really like to show on the edges. It is just like a peach cobbler should be, partially wet and runny when you get near the peaches, then above that there’s the fluffy and cooked through cake portion (you won’t get the golden crust but I think that’s nearly impossible with a mug cake, and this is so delicious you won’t really even think twice about that).

Once you start making these it could be come a dangerous thing because you’ll want them all the time and it is unbelievably simple to make! I’ve made it twice and I already have the recipe memorized.

I thought of using fresh peaches in this recipe but this is a mug cake. It’s all about ease and simplicity. I didn’t want to take the time to peel and dice a fresh peach so I just went with one of those individual cups of diced cling peaches. They worked perfect for this delicious mug cake. Enjoy!

    Hi i was just wondering which of your recipes are healthy ones i would much appreciate the help as im looking for new healthy recipes thankyou Shirley

  • Marianne

    I’m improvising further. I had no cake mix in the house- but I had pancake mix. So here goes….

    • Marianne

      It worked amazing!!!Ok for those others like me that make the decision to make something like this at 11pm…I made the pancake mix like it says on the package (I only use the add milk and egg kind) and poured it into a medium size microwave bowl. Then put the peaches in on top. Because this is more than one serving – possible 4 to 6, I microwaved for 8 minutes at 50% and then 3:30 at 100%. Came out amazing!!!

    I have crocks which are larger then most mugs. Do you think I could use them? How might you change the portions?

  • becky

    Looks amazing! I really would like to try this with pineapple and yellow cake mix instead but I’m not sure how much liquid to use; what’s your estimate of how much liquid goes in total?

      It’s been a while since I’ve made one of these but I’m guessing the liquid in the peaches was probably 2 – 3 Tbsp. The pineapple version sounds delish!
