Peach Cobbler Recipe Hack, Soda Cake

Hi. We celebrated my father in law's birthday yesterday. His favorite dessert in the whole wide world is peach cobbler, but he's gone and put himself on a diet, so I had to get creative.

I found some recipe hacks online and added my own twist to it. Considering that I didn't even get a picture of it because the people ate the entire tray of it, I'm just going to say that it went over splendidly.

If you're looking for a reduced sugar, low fat dessert idea that uses fresh fruit and is ridiculously easy, this is your thing. Promise.

Soda Cake Peach Cobbler
- 6-8 fresh peaches, peeled and cut up into bite size pieces
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 can lemon lime diet soda (I used Sprite Zero)
- Handful of oats (optional)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar (also optional)
- cinnamon

(Yes, really, that's all that goes into it)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick spray. Add the cut up peaches to the bottom, spreading evenly. (They do not, by the way, need to be ripe or cooked, which is a double bonus).

Spread the cake mix over the top, patting down with your hand. If you want it to be a little crispy, add the oats and brown sugar. Pour soda carefully over the top of the mixture. It will be bubbly. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon.

Bake for one hour.

I served it with light whipped cream instead of ice cream because of the diet, but you could use either.

Like I said, there was nothing left. They licked the container of whipped cream clean and scraped every bit out of the pan.
