This seriously tastes like homemade cobbler but without all the work. The cake mix combined with the peaches and other ingredients make this oh so tasty.

You can add vanilla ice cream and it is even more amazing. It is the perfect idea for dessert even when you don’t have much time at all.  We have had last minute guests and I made this in minutes.

I love that I can serve dessert with so few ingredients and have it turn out so amazing.  If you like easy desserts, try one of our Delicious Cake Mix Desserts.

What is Peach Dump Cake?

You are going to love it. It is an easy toss and go recipe.

  • unsalted butter

How to make peach dump cake:

  • First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is warming up, get out a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Then add 2 cans of the peaches with the heavy syrup to a baking dish with cooking spray. You will need to drain the 3rd can of peaches and only add the sliced peaches this time. Just stir to combine.

  • Then use a mixing bowl to whisk together the yellow cake mix and the spices. Once combined, sprinkle over the top making sure to cover all the peaches.

  • I like to pat the mixture down just a little. Then put the sliced butter squares all over the top of the cake mix. I prefer to use butter squares instead of melted butter.

  • 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 15 minutes before serving. It is so delicious served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Yum.

Try it with other fruits:

  • Cherry Pie Filling
  • Apple Pie Filling
  • Blueberry pie filling

It is really tasty with any type of pie filling instead of canned peaches. You can try using peach pie filling. This is really delicious and another great way to make this easy recipe.

You can even use fresh peaches or fresh fruit.

How to Store leftovers:

Place in the fridge up to 3 days. Make sure it is covered with foil or an air tight 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.

Topping ideas:

  • Ice cream. Vanilla 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.
  • Whipped cream
  • Caramel sauce. Drizzle all over the top. It is so good.
  • 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.

Give it a try.

My favorite is a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chopped pecans. The hot cobbler with the cold ice cream is amazing! Each bite is so delicious and so decadent.

This is such an easy dessert but one of our favorites.  I just love recipes that are so easy but turn out so delicious.

It is possible to enjoy a wonderful dessert with little to no work. Just another example that it does not have to be complicated or expensive to be amazing.

More variations:

  • Try white cake mix instead of yellow cake mix. You can also try regular spice cake and that would be yummy with the peaches.
  • Add nuts to the mix before baking for even more flavor.

The ideas are endless for dump cake recipes. They are so easy and delicious and a ton of fun to try new varieties.

  1. 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.

  2. 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. I haven’t tried that yet but I’m sure it would work great and would be delicious too! If you try it, please let us know how it turns out!
