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.

How to Make Peach Dump Cake

You hear me talking a lot about “your recipe is only as good as your ingredients” and most cases, that is my primary rule of thumb.  This dessert is designed for ease.  So, in this case, you won’t hear me say that.  For this Peach Dump Cake recipe, you need a box of yellow cake mix, your favorite can of peach pie filling, and some cold butter. Yes, there are a few ways you can make this dump cake fancy, but with a name like Peach Dump Cake, you really can’t dress it up too much.    Fresh peaches are a great addition, or you can add some canned sliced peaches to add some additional filling to the basic dump cake.

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.  I know cooking around the holidays, this happens to me quite a bit.

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 compliment 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.  To do that, you need one pint of heavy whipping cream and 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar. Essentially, from here you just pour the whipping cream into a bowl and whip until peaks start to form.  I would recommend using a hand mixer or a stand mixer unless you are really focusing on those arm muscles.  Slowly add in the sugar and serve.  Super simple.  You can put a few other fun twists on this by adding in cinnamon into the whipped cream.  You can do this with store-bought whipped cream too.  The same method applies here, you just add spices to the pre-made version.

    How would you convert this for canned peaches instead of peach pie filling ?

    • Audrey Woodsrd says:

      You would have to add cornstarch and cinnamon. You could Google the exact recipe.
