How to Make Dump Cake with Peaches

Dump Cake with Peaches is a very easy recipe made in one bowl, poured into a pan and canned peaches are poured over the top.

It doesn’t get much easier than that. Well, my daughter has been making this cake since she was three, and that is one simple cake!

This peach dump cake is a little bit different than the traditional since I don’t use a box of cake mix to start.

You make a simple cake batter and pour it into your prepared pan. Then, you spoon on the peaches, reserving the liquid.

Pour a mixture of the reserved liquid and your spices over the top and bake until the top is golden brown.

Of course, you can also make it with a box of prepared cake mix if you prefer.

Can you make the cake with frozen fruit?

You can make dump cake with peaches using frozen fruit. Defrost them first and drain the excess water.

Then, proceed with the original recipe. It also works just as well with peach pie filling instead of the canned peaches.

Difference between dump cake and a cobbler

Dump cake and cobbler are similar but there are a few key differences. In a dump cake, dry cake mix is poured over the top of the fruit filling.

In a cobbler, spoonfuls of prepared cake batter or biscuit dough are spooned over the top.

So, this recipe is similar to peach cobbler with cake mix. I guess you could call it a peach cobbler dump cake.

How to make dump cake in a Crockpot

You can easily make this dump cake with peaches in your Crockpot. Simply layer the ingredients in your Crockpot in the order given in the recipe.

Then, place the lid on and bake it on HIGH for two hours or on LOW for four hours. Spoon it out into bowls and serve.

This is a wonderful dessert to make on a busy night because it is so easy to make in so little time.

Should dump cake be refrigerated?

Dump cake is traditionally served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream.  So, you don’t need to refrigerate it before it’s served.

But, if you have leftovers, they should be refrigerated after being tightly covered. You can keep them in the refrigerator for three to four days.

To reheat your dump cake with peaches, simply place it in the microwave for a few minutes. Or, you can place it back in the oven until it is warmed through.

How long it takes to reheat will depend on how much you have left.

Recipe notes and tips

  • You can use your own fresh canned peaches or store-bought in this peach dump cake recipe.
  • You can short cut the recipe even more by placing the butter in the pan and put it in the oven until melted. Then proceed with the directions.

Serving suggestions

The best way to eat this dessert is warm, with a big scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream on top! But, some people also enjoy it with a scoop of whipped cream.

  1. I'd like to use my own home-canned peaches instead of the supermarket kind. I'm thinking I would need about 3 cups of my own canned peaches… Would that be about right? I'm looking forward to trying this with fresh peaches too! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  2. I used Pyure sweetener 1/2 cup in the cake recipe. I also added some fruit cocktail cups I had to fresh peaches and used the cocktail cups juice for my liquid for the top of the cake. I added 1/2 cup of sugar free brown sugar to the juice with the spices and baked it for 1 hour. It was delicious! Thank you for the recipe 🙂

  3. Really delicious! Came out perfect. The only thing I will change the next time I make it is to add maybe another half can of peaches & chop them up. Couldn't be easier & quick to make.

  4. This cake is fabulous. I'm wondering how much liquid is in the 29 oz canned peaches. Should have measured it before I poured it on the cake. Any one know?

  5. when do you add the butter? To the flour mixture or do you just melt it in the pan and pour the batter over it?

  6. Used half fresh and half canned. Turned out delicious. Only had trouble sticking to pan, Even used pam with flour. Bonnie I am signing as anonymous.

  7. 4 stars
    Several things:
    1. I used salted butter bc that’s what I had and didn’t add the salt
    2. Used oat milk instead of whole and I added it to the container I melted my butter in to add as much of the fat as possible
    3. Used frozen peaches, tried to remove as much of the solid ice chunks as possible, microwaved the frozen peaches to thaw, and saved the fluid for the topping, to which I added Brugal Rum because someone in the comments recommended rum, and I added a squeeze of lime bc it felt fitting
    5. I used the rest of my Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter since I had it and wanted to get rid of it. I used it as a base and spread it on my pan before pouring the cake batter.

    1. I forgot to mention the outcome: this wasn’t as soft as I imagined for a cake, but it was perfect with ice cream. The cake itself was not too sweet and I think the pair was phenomenal. I’m ambivalent about trying this again: it was simple with simple ingredients but I think I want that texture improved. If I didn’t use the pumpkin butter I think it would’ve been less impressive.
