Peach dump cake made with peach pie filling has to be one of my favorite desserts over this summer. Peaches are the quintessential summer fruit. A buttery tender crust lies on top of pie filling. It doesn’t get much easier to prepare a delicious cake mix recipe.

Easy to make, no need to measure ANYTHING!!

This recipe is made with white cake mix or yellow cake mix, peach pie filling, butter, and nuts if you desire. It may be hard to find an easier dessert recipe.

All you need to do is to spread two cans of peach pie filling in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Then you will top the peaches by sprinkling a box of cake mix on top of the peaches, see no measuring! Gently pat the cake mix onto the peaches, and then you will spread 1 stick of butter (4 ounces of butter) onto the cake mix.

Variation to the Peach Cobber Dump Cake

You can try this with different types of cake mixes. Some suggested cake mixes are:

  • French Vanilla cake mix
  • Yellow cake mix
  • White cake mix
  • Spice cake mix

Variations to the peaches!

I like to use two cans of pie filling, I love the thick texture and the flavor of the pie filling. You could easily swap one can of pie filling for a can of canned peaches that you cut up. The canned fruit can have light or heavy syrup. The heavy syrup will mean your peaches will be a bit thicker, than those of the light syrup. Or you could use two cans of canned peaches in syrup. You can use fresh or frozen peaches as well.

How to use frozen peaches in peach dump cake

You will need about 30 ounces of frozen peaches, empty them into a bowl, and after they have thawed, add 1/4 cup of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and continue to prepare the recipe by adding the cake mix and the butter.

Optional toppings!

You can add nuts such as walnuts, almonds, or even pecans to the top. Sprinkle on as many as you would like. You could also sprinkle on ground nutmeg or cinnamon or cinnamon sugar to the top. Add the toppings before you bake, and you will bake those flavors right into the cake! One thing is for certain you are doing to love very gooey decadent bite of this amazing cake.

    I served this with ice cream and I drizzled a peach syrup over all. Make a simple syrup and while hot pour over two diced peaches in a mason jar. Cover and cool. How easy is this!

    I am planning on making this have fresh frozen peaches in my freezer have never made anything like this before do you sprinkle the box mix dry on it without anything added? One of my kids was asking if I would make a pie this sounds easier. I appreciate all the great information to help feed my family.

    What size cake mix (ounces) are you using, since they’re somewhere like 15+ oz. lately. Some of my old recipes don’t work anymore, ever since the amount of mix has been reduced We love peaches, so I’m anxious to make this. I’ll try using fresh peaches, and adding some sugar, as you suggested for frozen peaches.

      I am using 15.25 ounces. I modify the old recipes by adding 3 tablespoons of flour, 3 tablespoons weighs about 3 ounces. The old boxed cake mixes used to be 18 ounces.
