Peach Dump Cake

Ingredients you will need

Peaches. We recommend that you use canned peaches in juice for the best overall result and flavor. While you can use fresh peaches, as long as they are peeled, canned peaches taste just as good, and have a decent amount of moisture to them as well. 

Cake Mix. For this recipe, you can use any brand of yellow or white cake mix. Our favorite to use is a yellow cake mix from Aldi, but you can use any type you wish. 

Butter. You will need some thinly sliced butter to help flavor this peach cobbler and make it moist. You can choose to use salted or unsalted butter for this recipe, although our preference is to use salted butter. 

Cornstarch. We recommend using a little bit of cornstarch to help thicken the peach mixture. You can use cornstarch or your favorite type of all-purpose flour. 

Brown Sugar. We recommend using light brown sugar for this recipe. However, if you prefer dark brown sugar, it can also be used just keep in mind it will give you a more molasses-like texture to the cobbler. 

Spices. The spices that we recommend using in your peach cobbler include cinnamonnutmeg, and cloves. Please keep in mind that the spices are entirely optional, but we have found that including them does produce a better overall flavored peach cobbler. 

How To Make Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

To begin making peach cobbler with a cake mix, start by opening your canned peaches. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish then pour the peaches into the pan. 

Sprinkle the peaches with brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves if desired. Stir to combine. 

Open the boxed cake mix. Sprinkle it over the peaches so that it is evenly distributed and covers the entire pan. 

Thinly slice your cold butter, and place the pieces evenly distributed on top of the cake mix. 

Place your cobbler into the preheated oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the top of your cobbler is a golden brown color and is bubbling around the edges. 

Remove from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

Including Cornstarch. We recommend that you include cornstarch or a bit of all-purpose flour in the peach mixture to help thicken it.

However, if you wish to skip this step, you can simply drain the juice from one can of peaches before adding it to your mixture.

Thinly sliced butter on top. With our easy recipe, you can simply dump most of the ingredients right into the baking pan. There is no need to melt the butter ahead of time and mix it into the cake mix.

While you can do this, you can also simply sprinkle the cake mix and top it with sliced butter.

Is peach cobbler served hot or cold?

How you serve this peach cobbler is entirely up to your preference. Peach cobbler can be served hot, warm, or chilled. Everybody has their own preferences. Below we will dive into our preference for this cobbler.

How To Serve

Our favorite way to serve peach cobbler with cake mix is simply to prepare it, then serve it right after it has had a few minutes to cool from baking. We like to serve this peach cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or topped with fresh whipped cream.  

Storing Info

You do not want to leave it at room temperature any longer as it could be exposed to unwanted bacteria and be unsafe to eat.

In the Fridge. Any leftover peach cobbler should be covered with plastic wrap, or transferred to an airtight container and then refrigerated for up to 3 to 4 days. 

In the Freezer. If you happen to have any delicious peach cobbler left over, it can be frozen.

To freeze you may consider storing it in individual serving sizes, in a plastic freezer bag, or in a plastic storage container, then placing it into the freezer for up to three months.
