Peach Dump Cake
Just like our cherry pineapple dump cake recipe you only need a few cans of this and a box of that to throw this easy cobbler style dessert together. After that it is up to you what you’d like to add in or on top to jazz it up even more.
If you’ve never made one of these throw together desserts, a dump cake recipe is extremely versatile. Beyond the pie filling, cake mix and butter you can swap the type of fruit used and flavors you love.
- Traditionally this is what it looks like once it is prepared.
If you’re having a brunch or holiday get together you might want to make this ahead of time. It can sit out for a good 12 hours, then store what’s not eaten in airtight containers in your refrigerator.
I generally don’t have any leftovers so there’s that. BUT if I did yes of course you’d want to transfer it into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and put into the fridge.
Warm in 30 sec. intervals in microwave.
Well generally you use boxed cake mix so it’s not “homemade” but I guess you could make that yourself. If so you just layer the ingredients as directed in the recipe. Generally pats of butter are at the very top.
Here are a few dump cake added ingredient ideas we’ve used. Use your imagination and add others.
- Crushed nuts – honey roasted are great
- Oats – old fashioned, not instant, to make it a bit more like a cobbler texture
- Raisins – I don’t know about you but I seriously think I could put them in almost every dessert for added flavor but totally up to you
Here is a quick step by step for our dump peach cobbler so you get the idea. Yes it’s named dump for a reason. There is literally No stirring involved.
If you’re unfamiliar with dump cake recipes they are different from a traditional cake you’d make in several ways.
- They don’t rise as you’d expect a cake to do
- They’re very moist
- Dump cakes are best eaten right out of the oven – my opinion obviously but I’ve made dozens of them
- You don’t follow the directions on the back of the cake mix box
- They are egg free – Important to know for those who cannot have eggs but want a yummy dessert. Yes there are some exceptions, but most do not use eggs.
Here is how our peach dump cake turned out when I took it out of the oven. Yes it’s a bit messy and wonderful.
- Don’t worry if you feel like it looks too wet. It is just right when the middle is golden brown like you see here.
Dump peach cobbler
- 9×13″ baking dish – I prefer glass
- Box of cake mix – we used yellow cake mix but you could use just about any flavor, spice cake mix would be wonderful too
- Peach pie filling – in a can
- if you want to use fresh or frozen fruit follow our fresh peach dump cake recipe
- Can of sliced peaches – with the juice and all, I used this one with lower sugar, you just dump it right in (I sliced the peaches into smaller pieces right in the can just so they would spread out a bit more)
- Melted butter
- Any additional toppings – nuts, oats
- Ice cream if you want to top it with that – and you should……
It’s almost as easy as our 3 ingredient dump cake but with one added can of fruit.

After you try this here are a few other goodies to make!

- Pineapple angel food cake recipe
- Pumpkin pie dump cake
- Fresh peach pie
- Our peach angel food cake below is what you should try next
- Using peaches in heavy syrup instead of pie filling it is lighter, our family loves it.
You’re just going to preheat oven to 350 degrees and melt your stick of butter. Then layer all the ingredients in the order I share below in the recipe card.
Make sure everything is spread evenly but do not stir. Serving warm is the best way. I allow it to sit for about 10 minutes to allow it to settle, then top with ice cream.
- You are going to just scoop it. No cutting is required, that is impossible with dump cakes so don’t even try.
- It’s not about that when it comes to this warm dessert. It’s about the fruit and flavors inside. You’re good….just dig in.

Time needed: 50 minutes.
Spray 13×9 pan with non stick spray and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour can of pie filling on bottom of dish, then sprinkle cake mix powder on top of that evenly across the pan. Sprinkle oats and nuts on top if you want to add those.
Melt your butter and pour that across your mixture evenly. Use a knife to slice the peaches in the can into smaller pieces (just do this in the can, they are very soft and will cut easily with a butter knife). Pour this across the top of your cake mix evenly.
Bake for about 50 minutes or until the top, cake part, is lightly golden brown and no longer looks wet in the middle.
Allow to sit for at least 10 min. once you take it out so it can settle and thicken up. Best if served immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
