Peach Dump Cake
With Fall festivities underway and the weather finally rumbling in, it’s beginning to look a lot like Autumn. It’s time to turn on the oven and start baking! In this article, I want to share an easy recipe for a Peach Dump Cake. You can easily substitute the peaches for Apple or Cherry instead depending on your fruit preference. It honestly just depends on which fruit you prefer best. I have tried all three and I promise they will smell and taste wonderful no matter which one you decide to dump into the pan! This is a simple recipe that doesn’t take hardly any prep time and is delicious if served hot with a side of vanilla ice cream. Now, lets get to baking!
1 Yellow Cake Mix
2 Cans of Peaches (or 2 cans of Apple Pie Filling or 2 Cans of Cherry Pie Filling… depending on which fruit you prefer)
2 Sticks of Margarine or Butter (whatever your preference is)
Nutmeg (Only needed when using Peaches)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9×13 cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place two cans of fruit filling into the cake pan and spread around. Sprinkle cinnamon (approximately 2 teaspoons) and nutmeg (approximately 1 teaspoon) on top and use a spoon to stir around the spices. Remember, do not use the nutmeg spice if you are making an Apple or Cherry Dump Cake. Nutmeg is only for the Peach Dump Cake. Now, sprinkle yellow cake mix on top. Make sure it is spread evenly on top of the fruit. Next, slice the two sticks of butter into squares. Cover the top of the cake pan with butter squares. If making the Apple Dump Cake, sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on top of the cake before placing in the oven. Next, place dump cake into the oven. Bake for approximately 20 to 30 minutes until the top of the cake is golden brown. Serve while warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!
