How to make peach dump cake

  • Step 1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is warming up, get out a 9×13 baking dish.

Step 2. Then add 2 cans of the peaches to a baking dish with cooking spray. You will need to drain the juice of the 3rd can of peaches and only add the sliced peaches this time. Just stir to combine.

Step 3. Get out a mixing bowl and whisk together the dry cake mix and the spices. Once combined, sprinkle over the top layer making sure to cover all the peaches.

Butter layered on top.

Step 4. Place the sliced butter squares all over the top of the cake mix. I prefer to use butter squares instead of melted butter.

Step 5. Finally, bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the cake mix and butter starts to get golden brown. The fruit should be bubbly. Allow the peach cobbler to sit for a few minutes before serving. It’s great served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Topping ideas

  • Ice cream. No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream is delicious but feel free to try different ice cream flavors. Use peach ice cream for more peach flavor or butter pecan would be fabulous.
  • Top with nuts. Chopped pecans or walnuts are great.
  • We have also made a crumble topping with brown sugar, chopped pecans and butter to put on top. This is totally optional but really delicious if you have a few extra minutes

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store leftovers?

Place in the fridge up to 3 days inside an airtight container. Make sure it is covered with aluminum foil or an airtight lid.

How to reheat?

You can reheat in the microwave in individual servings for 30 to 40 seconds. If you are reheating the entire dish, place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until heated through at 350 degrees.

Just be careful to not leave it in the oven too long or you risk it drying out.

How to freeze peach dump cake?

Make sure it is wrapped properly. I suggest wrapping in plastic wrap and then again in foil.

If your baking dish has a lid, place that on before freezing as well.

As long as it it stored properly, it should last up to 6 months in the freezer.
When ready to serve, just thaw and reheat. It is one of the easiest dessert recipes.

    I use the Betty Crocker Sugar Free yellow cake mix & am looking forward to trying this. I also will use peaches in light syrup. I am diabetic & have to modify almost every recipe I find.

      I love those ideas!

  2. Maxine says:

    What are the measurements for the Crumble topping?
    Is the topping placed on top of cake and baked at the same time or added after some time in the oven?

    1. Carrie says:

      You just place all the topping on top and then bake.
