Cake Mix Peach Cobbler
If you aren’t familiar with dump cake recipes you are missing out! I explain a little more about the strange name below, but if you want to call this recipe a peach cobbler you can! All this simple dessert is, is canned peaches topped with a sweet cake crust. The topping is sweeter than a traditional cobbler because it’s made with cake mix, but the idea is still the same. I love dump cake recipes because this dessert feeds a crowd and can be in the oven in 5 minutes. It’s hard to beat this convenience of this cake mix peach cobbler. And the flavor is just so good! You can’t go wrong with a peach dessert!
What is a Peach Dump Cake?
When I posted my recipe for Cherry Dump Cake I explained what a “dump cake” is. The name is totally weird but it just means that all you need to do is dump the ingredients into your pan and bake. No mixing or bowls required! Remember, you can always just call this a cake mix peach cobbler if you want to. But no matter what you call it, it still tastes amazing! My most popular recipe to date is a recipe from waaaaay back when. I got dumped by a boyfriend so I made my first “dump” cake on the blog and it was this pumpkin pie dump cake and it goes crazy every fall!
How to make Cake Mix Peach Cobbler:
Because this is a “dump” cake, just grease your dish and then dump in your 2 cans of peaches, then cake mix, melted butter and top it with some cinnamon. Done!! Just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ll be in heaven. Another great part about dump cakes is they are very easy to bake in different dishes. If all you have is 2 pie dishes, use those! Or a few loaf pans, use those! If you don’t have a 9X13 inch baking dish but you do have a 8X10 pan then use that! It’s a great recipe for college kids who may not have the recommended dishes for some desserts.
Pour that melted butter right on top of the cake mix.

If it cools and you don’t eat it all, just store it in the fridge covered in foil and then reheat slices in the microwave!
We sprinkle about a teaspoon ground cinnamon or cinnamon-sugar on top of our cake before we bake it but you can also play around with the spices. You can use nutmeg or get really kooky and add pecans, walnuts or mix in blueberries with the peaches! Dump cakes are so easy to play around with and make your own.
4 Ingredient Peach Dump Cake
The easiest peach cobbler recipe you'll ever find! This 4 Ingredient Peach Dump Cake is a must have recipe all summer long!
- 2 cans sliced peaches in heavy syrup
- 1 box Yellow Cake Mix
- 3/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a casserole dish (approximately 9 X 13).
Open cans of sliced peaches and pour into prepared pan with heavy syrup.
Sprinkle cake mix over pie filling.
Pour melted butter over the top as evenly as you can and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake for 50-65 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown! Serve warm with ice cream!
If you want to cheat the “dump” part of the recipe, you can use a small bowl to combine your cake mix and melted butter. Then sprinkle that over your filling. You’ll have one dirty bowl but then you don’t have to worry about any dry cake mix spots.
I prefer to use peach slices instead of peach pie filling but you can use the pie filling if that’s what you have on hand. Pie filling already has lots of sugar added and that usually used with a non-sweet crust. Since dump cakes use cake mix as the crust, it’s already making the dessert very sweet.
