Yesterday, I posted my mom’s recipe for Peach Cobbler Dump Cake. I love that recipe and it is a childhood favorite that I still enjoy.
Now that I am eating gluten free, I can no longer eat many of the desserts that I used to enjoy. I am slowly learning new favorites, but I miss a few of the things that I used to eat.
I recently realized that I could easily adapt my mom’s Peach Cobbler Dump Cake by using a gluten free cake mix. I used the Betty Crocker gluten free yellow cake mix and it worked great. I was not sure how this would turn out because you never know with gluten free things. Sometimes they work and sometimes they do not.
I have tried the gluten free cakes mixes now for several things, and I have had mixed results. So, I was really glad this turned out so well. Now I have an easy gluten free dessert that I can make.
The gluten free cake mixes usually make an 8×8 pan instead of a 9×13 pan like a regular cake mix would. I was not sure how it would be best to adjust this recipe, so I just made it like I always did, but used the gluten free cake mix. It worked fine even though it was supposed to make a smaller cake.
This dessert turned out really well. It is not quite the same as the original version, but it is very close to it. This is definitely going to be a new favorite.
Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Dump Cake
Place peaches in a 9×13 pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over peaches. Carefully spoon melted butter over cake mix. Sprinkle with nuts if using them. Bake at 325 for about 50 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
