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. 😉

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! 😉

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

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.

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!

Dump Cake Variations

Who would have thought combining 3 simple ingredients could make a delicious, addicting cake?! We sure didn’t, but we are so glad we can add this to the long go-to dessert list. 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.

How to make dump cake in crock pot?

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.

How to store Dump cake?

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

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. 😉

  3. My grandma lived with us for a while before she passed away, and would always make dump cakes for dessert! I was feeling nostalgic, and decided to make this peach dump cake recipe, and it did not disappoint! For how simple the ingredients are, this cake tasted amazing.

    I’m a sucker for warm fruity desserts like pies and cobblers. It’s currently peach season and I wanted to try a new recipe with them. My family loved this recipe. I cant wait to make it again when the weather cools down.

    My hubby loves peach cobbler, but I’ve never been a fan of the doughy texture that a Lot OF cobblers have. I made this TONIGHT and it was AMAZING!!! This is seriously delicious and so simple to make! We found a wonderful compromise with this dessert! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

    it was delicious and incredibly easy. just two hints: I froze my stick of butter and the serrated knife. the butter came out grated and was easier to evenly cover the cake. i also mixed the cake mix well with the syrup so the whole dessert was moist after baking.

    This Is excellent just as described. The first time, I just followed the recipe, and Served it warm with He A v y cream. The second time I made it, I added 1/4 tsp almond Extract and a pinch of cinnamon. I served it at room temperature with ice cream. Both Versions were hits.

    I made this according to the recipe and added some mixed berries to the fruit. Came out wonderfule!!! will use this recipe again and again! Thanks for sharing.

    1. I haven’t tried using fresh, but you do need the juice, so yes, I would cook them a little to make a syrup. I’m not sure how many peaches it would take, but I am guessing one peach would be about one cup, so maybe 3-4 peaches?

    I MADE THIS RECIPE EXACTLY AS STATED, BUT WAS DISAPPOINTED, AS THE COOK TIME WAS OFF A GREAT DEAL. AT 350 DEGREES FOR 45 MINUTES I STILL HAD A LITTLE DRY CAKE MIX ON TOP, TOO MUCH LIQUID AND RAW CAKE BATTER. I PUT IT BACK IN THE OVEN AND HAD TO BAKE IT AN ADDITIONAL 30 MINUTES. I KNOW OVENS CAN VARY, BUT MINE ACCORDING TO A THERMOMETER READING IS ACCURATE. I WOULD SUGGEST MODIFYING THE COOKING TIME ON THE RECIPE. I WILL SAY THE FLAVOR WAS GREAT AND WITH THE MODIFIED COOK TIME IS AN AWESOME RECIPE TO HAVE FOR A QUICK DESSERT.
