Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

Have you ever had dump cake before?? It reminds me so much of a cobbler of sorts, but it’s become one of my favorite go-to types of desserts. Dump cakes are usually made with a base of cake mix plus some sort of fruit filling and are usually dumped into a pan, stirred and baked.

I first tried it when my aunt gave me an amazing recipe for Pumpkin Dump Cake that quickly become a fall favorite and led us to make a Cherry Dump cake recipe and today’s Peach Dump Cake. We love peach treats in our home (and especially Peach Cobbler) so we knew this would be a hit and it was!

And when you are literally dumping everything in a dish and letting it bake – it can’t get any easier. We know this dessert is especially appealing when it’s cool or cold outside, but it’s also appealing in the Spring and Summer because of it’s fruity-ness. Perhaps I’m just trying to find excuses to enjoy it all year long. 😉

How to Make Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

As per their name, this cake is one you dump and go. They’re so simple that you’ll be wanting to try all the fruit varieties!

PREP. Make this cake by preheating the oven to 350. Then spread peaches, with the liquid into a greased 9×13 dish.

LAYER + BAKE. Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the peaches. We like to cut the butter using a pastry blender. Makes it simple and quick! Place the butter evenly over the cake mix and bake for 40-45 minutes.

ENJOY! Serve warm on it’s own or with ice cream, and you won’t believe how tasty this cake is. You can also serve this whipped cream, but however you serve it, we think you’ll love it!

Tips, Variations + Storing Info

This dump cake is so easy and delicious it’s sure to become a family favorite! Here are a few handy tips when baking this tasty treat:

  • To save some extra time you could melt the butter in the microwave and then drizzle it on top of the cake mix before you bake it.
  • If you are wanting more of a “peach crisp” dump cake you could add some quick or old fashioned oats to the cake mix before baking.
  • This recipe can also be made in a crock pot! Just dump the peaches and syrup in the bottom of a greased slow cooker. Then melt your butter and mix it with your cake mix. Sprinkle over the peaches making sure to break up any large pieces. Cook on HIGH for 2 hours or LOW for 4 hours.

Other fruits we want to try include:

  • Blackberry
  • Blueberry
  • Cherry
  • Apple

Just used the canned fruits for this and the instructions will be the same.

To STORE, place in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave if wanting to enjoy warm.

To FREEZE any leftover dump cake make sure to store it in an airtight container. It should freeze well for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy it again, just thaw it in the fridge overnight. Transfer it to an oven safe dish and then warm it up in a 350 degree oven.

    1. We don’t for this specific recipe, but we do have a fresh peach alternative in our Peach Cobbler recipe. You could potentially do that same thing and swap out the canned peaches for that fresh peach mixture. Here’s the instructions for that (and you’ll actually want to double this. It makes the equivalent of a 15 oz can of peaches): Take 2 cups of freshly sliced peaches (about 4-5 peaches, peeled, cored and sliced), ¾ cup of sugar, and dash of salt, and bring to a boil over high heat.

    1. I haven’t tried it with the peach pie filling before, but you could certainly give it a try! You’ll have to let us know how it turns out if you do. 🙂

  1. Just found this dump cake recipe. As I live Alone. I cut the recipe in half. Great good cannot wait to try the apple and others. Sue M.

    This was amazing!!! Made it for my Dads birthday and he asked me to make it every year for his birthday. Had it one day with ice cream and next day with whipped cream.

    1. Yay! I’m so glad you all enjoyed it, especially your dad. Ooh I can’t ever decide my favorite… ice cream or whipped cream. So yummy with either one!

  3. 3 stars
    I would use the peaches in juice – not heavy syrup – too much sugar, and put some granola or toasted nuts on top.

    Absolutely delish!
    I meant to mix in a little nutmeg, cardamom, and vanilla but totally forgot. So I simply sprinkled it on top just after popping it in the oven. It turned out wonderfully and was an absolute hit for mothers day dinner yesterday.
