It seems I just missed peach season this year and I have been craving peaches like crazy. I love my peaches with cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with a cobbler of some sort. Yes, they are also scrumptious in a smoothie, grilled, with whiskey, and of course fresh. But right now all I can think of is cake. Peaches and cake. Shocking huh?
Well if you know much about me, cake is my weakness. Crumb cake, cupcake, pancake, layer cake, sheet cake, cake balls... OK, before I start sounding like Bubba Gump let's move on. If you care to see into the inspiration behind my cake obsession check out our Cake Cake Cake Pinterest board.
A reader mentioned their favorite cobbler yesterday on our Facebook page and I got to thinking. In Florida, which is mostly southern whether y'all like it or not, we enjoyed many southern traditions. Cooking whole animals in a fire pit, drinking out of mason jars, muddin', 4 wheelin', and of course any reason to throw a get together. Would it surprise you to learn that I used to drive a big ol' pick up truck?
I will have to dig up a picture some day.
Anyway, anytime we were heading to a pig roast or a barbecue at someones place I would bring the baked goods. Southern baking in my opinion is simple and all about the flavors. I remembered a dump cake I used to make in Florida and thought I would share it with y'all. A very easy cake made in one bowl, poured into a pan and canned peaches are poured over top. It doesn't get much easier than that. Well my three year old did most of the work and that is a simple cake.
Also know as a dump cake where I came from because you just dump it all in one pan. You don't have to stir it together. I will admit this isn't a classic dump cake, but it is my kind. Its all from scratch and 100% delicious. You can use your own fresh canned peaches or store bought.
