Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

Sorry this is the same picture as yesterday. I did not have a picture of both versions and they looked basically the same.

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.

  2. ooh thank you for sharing this recipe! i’m in the same boat as you now. -trying to figure out how to cook/bake gluten free. yikes! it’s like jumping into the ocean full of sharks.. hehehe.
    i just bought those betty crocker mixes but haven’t tried them yet. i’m going to try this one for sure!

  3. Lynn that looks so yummy. I love dump cakes. I need a quick dessert for tonight so I think i will try this will apples or peaches. I have to see what I have in the pantry. Thanks for sharing your moms recipe.

  4. Looks yummy! Makes me want to have some now lol.

  5. Lynn,
    I am going to try this with a dump cake recipe, using the same mix. Will let you know how it goes. I was happy to see that you did use the 9×13 pan anyhow and it worked. I use my co-workers as testers and they are a great bunch!

  6. Thanks for posting this!!! My daughter has to bring a “peach cobbler” to school for a project. The problem is that there is a child with gluten allergies and another with egg allergy and the teacher said the kids must make something ALL the students can eat so this looks like it will work perfectly!!
