Uhhh what is a dump cake?

I didn’t grow up using the term dump cake so this one was new to me. But it’s as simple as it sounds.

You just dump all your ingredients together and bake. It couldn’t be easier!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake Ingredients

For this cake, you just need 3 ingredients.

Feel free to add some cinnamon if you really want to get fancy, but it isn’t essential.

Dump Cake Shopping List:

  • Canned Peaches (or other canned fruit)
  • White or Vanilla cake mix
  • Butter (in sticks)

Start with the peaches, then layer the cake mix and butter on top.

This would make such a great drop-off recipe or addition to your Easter brunch table.

Then you just pop it in the oven and wait for the magic to happen!

Peach dump cake is awesome with vanilla ice cream, but you could also serve with whipped cream on top.

Never mind! I just looked at the picture again and it shows unmixed cake mix. Looks so easy. I'm going to try apple filling. Thank you!

Do you put the cake mix on the fruit AS IS, without mixing it up like a regular cake batter? Sorry if it's a dumb question, but it didn't make sense.

That is correct. Just 'dump' the dry cake mix over the peaches. and top with butter.
