Peach Dump Cake
The genius that decided to dump a bunch of dessert staples into a pan and see what happens next deserves an award. They are my hero! Dump cakes are a dream recipe for busy moms and dads. For those days when just getting through the door is a chore, you can still impress the entire family with a tasty dessert that doesn’t take much effort from you. The prep for this delicious peach dump cake recipe is five minutes. I’ll say it louder, FIVE MINUTES. No mess, no fuss, just dump it in the pan and go.
Can you Make Crockpot Peach Dump Cake?
You can and you should! It is literally the exact same recipe and instructions, except you use a crockpot instead of the skillet and an oven. For this method, you will put the peach pie filling in the bottom of a greased crockpot, top with the cake, and then butter, and then cover and cook on high for 2 hours or on low for 4. You can get the same great-tasting results with a slow cooker as with cooking in the oven. This is a great option if you are already using up some of your precious oven space!
Topping Ideas for Peach Dump Cake
The basic topping choices for a peach dump cake are whipped cream or ice cream. Within those two categories, there are a few variations that can really take this dump cake to a whole new level. For the ice cream, we almost always have vanilla or vanilla bean as a staple in our freezer. The vanilla ice cream is a perfect complement to the buttery, cakey, peach flavors in the dump cake.
Homemade Whipped Cream
Making your own whipped cream is probably one of the top recommendations that I will ever give you when discussing homemade desserts. I have traditional homemade whipped cream and stabilized whipped cream should you want to make this dessert ahead of time!
