Peach Dump Cake

Quick, simple and tasty Peach Dump Cake is always a hit. This cake mix based treat is filled with peaches and butter and is the perfect dessert to make when you don’t have much time to prep but want a warm, delicious cake.

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. 😉

    1. I don’t think so. You need the butter for flavor. Why won’t your husband let you use butter it’s better for you than margarine?

  1. 5 stars
    very good . I used fresh peaches. It turn out delicious. Lil I want to thank you for the recipes. Keep on sending Them. I love to try new recipes all the time. Thank you and have a wonderful rest of the week

  2. I accidentally left my dump peach cobbler out on the counter in the pan with cover I cooked it in. We went out of town and it was 57 degrees in the house when we returned 3 days later. Is my peach cobbler trash now??😢

    1. Not sure?? I don’t think I would personally eat it, but it’s like leaving it in the fridge, so it could be ok 🙂

  3. I made this with a food processor. I put the cake mix, butter and oatmeal in and processed it until the butter was cut into the cake oatmeal mixtute and then poured it over the peaches in my crockpot it was wonderful.

    1. Yes, but you will have to add a little liquid. I use pie filling but add some peach schnapps to it! Its wonderful!

  4. 3 stars
    I would recommend compressing the cake mix down into the peaches/liquid before putting into the oven. This can easily be done with the back of a large spoon. If you don’t do this some of the dry cake mix will not incorporate with the peaches/liquid and will just sit on the top of the cake as a powdery uncooked topping.

  5. The peaches I have are not in heavy syrup they’re in pineapple juice unsweetened. What should I add to it to make the pie sweet?
