Gluten Free Peach Dump Cake without Cake Mix


Gluten Free Peach Dump Cake without Cake Mix

Gluten Free Peach Dump Cake without Cake Mix is a gluten free version of the classic dump cake recipe, but instead of using a cake mix you make it from scratch.

I am so excited about the gluten free dessert recipes that I have planned to share with you all over the next few weeks. I know not all of you are gluten free, but most of you know someone that is gluten free, so I hope you will find the recipes helpful. 

Today I am starting out by sharing a quick and easy dessert that no one will know is gluten free.

I love sharing ideas of how you can make gluten free quick, easy, and delicious without breaking the budget. Gluten free eating can be expensive, but it doesn’t always have to be.

Gluten Free can be quick, easy, delicious, and budget friendly. Today’s recipe proves that.

Peach Dump Cake without a Cake Mix

This gluten free peach dump cake is the classic dump cake recipe made gluten free without using a gluten free cake mix.

Gluten free cake mixes can be expensive. They are also often not quite the same as a regular cake mix when it comes to size and what it makes. Making your own gluten free cake mix topping for a dump cake solves this problem. It gives you a simple gluten free dessert that is easy to make and relatively inexpensive. It is also a dessert everyone will love even if they are not gluten free.

This is one of those desserts where I tried using a gluten free blend and I was not happy with the results. It was okay, but not quite what I wanted. With some work I came up with a much better version using individual flours. My family thought it tasted just like the gluten filled recipe that my mom has been making for years.

If you need a quick and easy gluten free dessert I think you will like this one.

  1. Can’t wait to try it. Was heading out the door to the store when I thought I would check on my e-mail. So glad I looked. Will let you know how it turns out.

    • I hope you enjoy it!

      • The flavor is great and I ate it while it was still really warm. Maybe that was the reason it was a little soupy. The crust wasn’t as thick as the picture you posted, so I don’t know what happened there, I used a 9 x 13 dish (which I greased also). Next time, will add a little nutmeg, or allspice also.

        • I took the pictures after it had cooled down a bit, so it does set up a little when it cools. I am glad you liked it. My mom always kept it simple, so I have too, but yes you can easily add nutmeg or other spices. It would be great that way too!

  2. Can you use gluten free flour or almond flour instead of rice flours?

    • I tried a gluten free flour blend in this recipe and it worked, but was not as good as the individual flours. If you have a gf blend that you like it might be worth trying though to see how you like it. I don’t do much with almond flour because my daughter is allergic to almonds, but if you have done that in other recipes it is probably worth trying in this one. I hope that helps.

  3. I can’t use rice flour. Can you use almond flour? What is xantana gum?

    • I have not done much with almond flour because my daughter is allergic to almonds. If it works in other recipes in place of rice flour I think it is worth trying. Xanthan gum is an ingredient used in gluten free baking that helps replicate gluten. It gives gluten free baked goods a better texture. I hope that helps.
