Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

This is a recipe that my mom made all the time when I was growing up. We always called it peach cobbler. It was not until I was married and had other versions of this dessert, that I realized it is really a version of the dump cake that many people make.

This dessert is easy and frugal, yet really good. It is one of those simple desserts that everyone enjoys. I also like this recipe because I usually have all the ingredients in my pantry. This is one of those recipes that I can put together when I need a last minute dessert.

If you serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream it makes it even better.

Saturday I will post how I adapted this to be gluten free.

  1. I’ve never made peach cobbler like this, but it looks delicious!! I’ll have to try it as peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts.

  2. I was just trying to decide what to take to some friends in the morning! This is perfect! Thank you.

  3. I have a similar recipe for Peach Cobbler but uses Bisquik and sugar I think. I’ll try this way and see if it tastes the same. Sounds scrumptious!!

  4. WOW that looks yummy!

  5. I love dump cakes! Have you tried making one with the Betty Crocker GF Cake mixes?

  6. Great minds think alike!

  7. Would it be possible to use frozen peaches instead of canned? I have a lot of frozen peaches and I am looking for ways to use them.

    • @Sheena, I don’t think frozen peaches would work in this recipe very well. I think you need the juice from the canned ones to give it the right texture.

      • Thanks for the answer. I have all these frozen peaches from the summer and I use them for smoothies but I am looking for new ways to work through my stash.

    • You can use them, Just add a can of sprite or any other flavor you like. But sprite does work the best. WE do it all the time while we are out camping.

    • You can use frozen peaches. Use a can of Sprite or 7up. Don’t use the melted butter. Try it, I think you will like it.!

  8. Delicious! I wish I had a huge bowl of your cobbler right now. No, TWO bowls. One for now, one for later.

  9. I’ve never had a dump cake, but it sure sounds good =D.

  10. hooray! I was just looking around my fav frugal sites for ideas on what to take for a church potluck this Sunday! This is sooo much better than a bag of rolls!

  11. I make this quite a bit. My recipe came from my mother. This is a great dessert for carry-in/pot luck dinners, too.

    Yours looks delicious. I may have to pick up the ingredients and bake over the weekend.

  12. I think you just hit the nail on the head of how I differentiate between my cobbler and my dump cake. My dump cake uses a cake mix and my cobbler is completely from scratch. Both are delicious, but the cobbler is by far my fav.

    You also just proved how easy it is to make dessert and I loves me some dessert! lol

  13. This really looks wonderful. I’ve never made it but I plan to remedy that soon. Have a great Foodie Friday.

  14. AWESOME!!! and EASY!!! dessert for the family.

  15. I was so thrilled when I found out you could make peach cobbler like this! SO GOOD! My hubby is crazy about it!

  16. I can’t believe how easy this was. 3 ingredients, wow! We enjoyed it. It didn’t last 24 hours and there are only 2 of us. Thanks. I will definitely be making it again.

  17. this looks so good i want to make this right now but all i have is angel food cake mix…………….

  18. so i made this tonight, the flavor is delicious but i had a fair amount of the dry cake mix still powder-like under the somewhat browned top. what do i need to do to avoid this next time? also, i saw many other similar recipes with higher (like 375 degrees) temps than this one, is the 325 degrees correct? thanks! lauren

    • I have always cooked it at 325 but you could try a higher temperature and see if that helps. The butter also needs to be drizzled pretty evenly over the top, so make sure it is melted all the way. Sorry it did not turn out quite right for you.

  19. We use to make this all the time when I was a kid too! I’ve never heard of anyone else making it, one of my favorites!! I will be making it tomorrow.

  20. Brittney Larsen says

    Please update your recipe to say the butter has to be spread evenly over the cake mix this didn’t turn out for me had dry cake mix over top…wasted ingredients makes people really frustrated when it doesn’t turn out. Thanks

  21. do I stir it before baking?
