4 Ingredient Recipe

Canned Peaches – Use the entire can, including the syrup so it makes the topping moist and fluffy. Other canned fruits to use are pears, cherries, even fruit cocktail!

Cake Mix – This recipe uses a cake mix, but it comes out more like a cobbler. Lemon or spice cakes are excellent switches for yellow cake mix as well.

Variations – Toss in a few fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries for variety. Experiment with different combinations of cake mix and fruit, like chocolate cake and canned cherries or a spice cake with canned pears! Create more of a peach cobbler with a sprinkle of toasted coconut, oatmeal and pecans, or a peach cobbler with Bisquick mix! Why not add some mini chocolate chips for a new twist to dump cake!

How to Make Peach Dump Cake

4 ingredients and 3 simple steps are all it takes!

  1. Pour both cans of the peaches into a baking dish and stir in cinnamon.
  2. Cover peaches with cake mix, then top with pats of butter.
  3. Bake until the top is golden brown and bubbly.
  4. Let cool and then garnish with a few mint leaves to make it fancy!

Peach Dump Cake Recipe Tips

  • Buy store-brand cake mixes and canned fruit on sale so you’ll always have ingredients for a dump cake on hand!
  • Fresh peaches can be added either peeled or unpeeled, unlike canned peaches, they’ll stay firmer after cooking.
  • Bake a dump cake at the same time as a main dish like meatloaf or chicken and let the oven do double duty.

Serving And Storing Peach Dump Cake

Peach dump cake is a delish dish on its own, but a huge dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel syrup makes for an eye-popping dessert! Keep leftover portions covered in plastic wrap in the refrigerator for about three days. Enjoy it cold or reheat portions in the microwave. Freeze portions in an airtight container for up to one month.
