What Is a Dump Cake?

A dump cake is one of the easiest desserts you can make. You prepare the filling and then set it in a pan before sprinkling cake mix on top.

Once you add the cake mix on top of the filling you’ve prepared, you don’t mix it! You slice thin pieces of butter, spread them out evenly on top of the cake mix layer, and then put the pan right in the oven, baking it for up to 55 minutes.

It’s a convenient and stress-free dessert that will leave you with an amazing treat to serve after dinner or at any family function. With this Peach Dump Cake, you’re spreading your peaches and cinnamon out on the baking pan and then adding your cake mix layer and butter on top.

FAQs About Peach Dump Cake:

  1. Can I use fresh peaches instead of canned?

    • Yes, you can use fresh peaches. Simply peel and slice them, and consider adding a little sugar if they’re not very sweet.
  2. Do I need to mix the ingredients in the dish?

    • No, just layer the ingredients in the dish and bake. The cake mix will absorb the juices from the peaches as it bakes.
  3. What kind of cake mix should I use?

    • A yellow cake mix is traditionally used, but feel free to experiment with white or even spice cake mix.
  4. Can I make this cake ahead of time?

    • Yes, but it’s best enjoyed warm. If you make it ahead, reheat it in the oven before serving.

Should I use fresh peaches when preparing the cake?

Instead of using fresh peaches, you’ll need to use canned peaches in heavy syrup. The syrup adds flavor to the dessert and is a must.

However, if you only have fresh peaches, you’ll need to combine them with ½ cup of sugar to get a similar taste for this recipe.

Overall, it’s much easier to use canned peaches with syrup that you’ll combine with your cinnamon, stir well, and then pour into your baking pan.

Tips and Tricks For Peach Dump Cake:

  • If using canned peaches, opt for peaches in juice rather than syrup to reduce the sweetness.
  • For an even richer flavor, you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or cinnamon to the peaches.
  • Make sure to evenly distribute the butter on top of the cake mix so that it all gets moistened as it bakes.
  • You can use a mix of half melted butter and half cold butter cubes for varying texture on the crust.


  • Peach Berry Dump Cake: Add a layer of mixed berries such as blueberries and raspberries along with the peaches.
  • Peach Pecan Dump Cake: Sprinkle some chopped pecans over the top before baking for added crunch.
  • Peaches and Cream Dump Cake: Add dollops of cream cheese between the peach layer and cake mix layer.
