Easy Peach Dump Cake

I was planning on scheduling this post to go up later this week, because I'm hoping to take a break from baking and "eat healthier"… But it's way too good to wait for. 

So I'm spoiling you. 

Known fact numero uno :: I like peaches. 
Known fact numero dos :: they don't have fresh peaches here {lame.}
Known fact numero tres :: I also like cake mix 

AND this dessert has canned peaches and cake mix in it. 

Really, all you do is dump everything in a pan. 

Hence the name Dump Cake… 

So basically, it's as easy as pie. Which is ironic because pie isn't easy. 

But life goes on… There's a lot of things that don't make sense, wouldn't you agree? 

My mom had friends over yesterday afternoon for lunch, and I take any chance I can get to bake for people.

I love making something and it's gone within hours… clearing up the counters for more baked goodness… That I get to share with you wonderful peoples.

Anyways. She suggested making a dessert she used to make.

When she was describing it to me I was drooling.

Some moments in life you just need to have a bib on.

Like when you're watching Unique Sweets. Happens to me EVERY SINGLE DAY. So sad.

I think I could start a little business. And I'll make millions. And you will be my witnesses.


If you're looking for a quick, easy dessert with minimal ingredients, look no FURTHAAAAAAAAAAH!

It tastes like a masterpiece. Which it is. But it's a 5 minute masterpiece… The best kind.

Hallelujah amen.

Easy Peach Dump Cake
slightly adapted from :: this recipe

2 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches, with juice
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Pour canned peaches into a 9x13 inch baking pan; make sure juices cover peaches, if not add a small amount of water to just cover fruit. 

Mix peaches with 1/2 cup of the sugar and sprinkle cinnamon to taste into mixture.

Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over top of peach mixture. 

Poke holes into cake mix to allow juice through.

Cut stick of margarine into small pats, placing randomly over the top. 

Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and a light dusting of cinnamon.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the juice mixture is bubbly and the top of the cake mix topping is crusty and golden brown.

Top it off with some powdered sugar and chopped nuts. Best served warm and gooey! :) 

Pin It!


  1. I just made peach dump cake yesterday!!! Too funny. Great minds, huh? Except I made it for a party. You couldn't pay me to eat peaches.

  2. I use a very similar recipe with blackberry pie filling or crushed pineapple and any pie filling. Dump cake mix on top then pecan halves and 1 stick of butter cut into thin pats. I've never had to add additional sugar to the recipe, it bubbles up well and forms its own crust. Deliciousss!!!

  3. Thanks so much for your wonderful blog and endless enthusiasm for food and baking! A heart like my own... or at least a tummy that appreciates the same things as mine!

  4. Haha I was just thinking, I thought Dorothy made a peach dump cake this weekend! Great minds DO think alike :) this looks so easy!

  5. Can you use fresh peaches too? or just canned?


Thanks so much for taking a moment or two of your time to leave a comment! I love 'em!
