This recipe is fast, easy, and wonderful especially when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a warmed serving of this dump cake. Feel free to use other fruits -- this is my son's and grandson's absolute favorite. Enjoy!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

You never know when a craving for a sweet treat will hit. That's why we love desserts you can prepare in a snap like this peach dump cake. Once baked, it reminds us of a cobbler. The peaches are warm and soft. We love how Diane adds a little hint of ginger to the cake mix. It gives the cake topping a unique flavor and pairs well with the cinnamon that's also added. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream and you have an easy treat.

Ingredients For peach dump cake

  • 1 box
    yellow cake mix
  • 3 can
    peaches, drained but save juice (12 oz each)
  • 1 stick
    margarine, room temp
  • 1/2 c
    white sugar
  • 1/4 c
    lite brown sugar
  • 2-3 tsp
    ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp

How To Make peach dump cake

  • Drained peaches cut into bite-size pieces.
    First drain canned fruit, reserving juice. Cut peaches into bite-sized pieces.
  • Peaches and juice in a baking dish.
    Cover bottom of 9 x 13-inch pan with fruit. Add enough juice to cover fruit about 1/4 of the way from the bottom of the pan. If you add too much juice, the dough will become soupy.
  • Working margarine into a bowl of cake mix, sugars, cinnamon, and ginger.
    Dump the remaining ingredients- cake mix, sugars, cinnamon, ginger in a medium bowl. Work the margarine into the dry mixture until a crumbly consistency.
  • Cake mix sprinkled over the peaches.
    Dump evenly over the peaches, being sure to cover all the fruit.
  • Peach Dump Cake baking in the oven.
    Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for approximately 40 minutes or until topping is golden.
  • Peach Dump Cake baked until golden brown.
    NOTE: 1) If using fresh fruit you will need to prepare it in bite-sized pieces. 2) If the cake mix topping is too mushy, add dry oatmeal to the mixture a little at a time until you get to the desired consistency.
