Canned Peaches And Cake Mix


Are you a fan of canned peaches and cake mix? If yes, then maybe you would like to buy a Canned Peaches And Cake Mix in bulk at wholesale prices. I’ve always wanted to try putting canned peaches into cake mix. The thought was always in the back of my mind but I never followed through. That was until this week, when I finally took some canned peaches and mixed it with a cake mix to see if it made the cake any better.

Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix

Prep Time: 5 mins•Cook Time: 30 mins

Did you know you could make peach cobbler with cake mix, butter, and canned peaches? That’s right! You can rustle up this classic comfort food dessert with just 3 ingredients!

I always keep canned fruit, butter, and cake mix handy so I can make this in a jiffy for unexpected guests. You don’t need any other ingredients either.

Just sprinkle the dry cake mix over the peaches, top with butter, and bake! This is one of those recipes you will really be wowed by because with just 3 ingredients and 5 minutes you can make the perfect dessert.

Nobody says no to an easy peach cobbler. In fact, most people ask for a second helping! This peach dump cake is tasty with vanilla ice cream which really brings out that juicy peach taste. Making peach cobbler was never so easy!

Main Ingredients

Of course, every ingredient in this cobbler is a main ingredient since there are only three of them. Let’s take a closer look at each:

  • Canned peaches: For fruitiness. You can choose from canned peaches in fruit juice or canned peaches in syrup. The liquid will be soaked up and turned it into a thicker cobbler-type sauce as you prepare this recipe, so you can use either kind. Even fresh peaches would work here if you don’t mind the extra labor! If you want to use fresh, add a splash of fruit juice to the first layer too.
  • Cake mix: To make an easy topping. Yellow mix reacts with the peach juice and butter to become a cobbler topping. If you’re used to having to combine different ingredients to make cobbler recipes, you’ll be delighted how timesaving this ingredient is. Try white mix if you want or even spiced mix. Any kind of cake flavor which goes with peach will work here (and I can’t think of one that wouldn’t!)
  • Butter: To keep the cobbler moist. Since there are only 3 ingredients here you will want to use real butter and not margarine which would lack the rich flavor and luxurious texture. I like using salted butter because I find a touch of salt complements the otherwise sweet flavors but unsalted would also be fine.

Instructions Overview

How difficult can a 3-ingredient cobbler be? Not hard at all, you’ll be pleased to know. The first thing to do is tip the peaches into a baking dish.

Next, sprinkle the yellow cake mix evenly on top and then drizzle the melted butter over it to moisten it all. You can use a fork if need be to ensure you don’t leave any dry spots.

All that’s left to do is bake and then enjoy it served warm!

Common Questions

What is the difference between a dump cake and a cobbler?

Although both desserts are similar, dump cake is made with cake mix. The ingredients are literally dumped into the baking dish (hence the name!) Cobbler usually has a pie crust or biscuit topping. However, this recipe can also be called a cobbler because it tastes so similar and the terms are often used interchangeably.

Why are canned peaches so good?

Perhaps you thought about using fresh peaches to make the dessert healthier, but wait! Canned peaches in natural juice (as opposed to those in light or heavy sugar syrup) boast all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients of fresh ones. In fact, one study showed that canned peaches have nearly 4x more vitamin C and also more folate. So stock up on canned peaches; they’re good for you!

Can dump cake be frozen?

I’m sure you won’t have any of this delicious dump cake leftover, but if you do you can definitely freeze it. I’d suggest freezing it in separate portions. After thawing you can pop it in the microwave to warm it back up.

Do you refrigerate dump cake?

You will need to keep your leftovers refrigerated because the cobbler contains fruit as well as dairy and it can spoil otherwise. This recipe makes 9 servings. It should be fine in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Chopnotch Tips

  • Swap the canned peaches for literally any kind of canned fruit you prefer, either in natural juice or syrup.
  • I love this with vanilla ice cream, but if you prefer whipped cream (or both) go ahead!
  • Make sure the butter is mixed into the cake mix or else you will end up with dry patches of topping.
  • Give it at least 10 minutes (preferably 20) of rest before serving because it is going to be piping hot from the oven.

Have you ever had dump cake before?? It reminds me so much of a cobbler of sorts, but it’s become one of my favorite go-to types of desserts. Dump cakes are usually made with a base of cake mix plus some sort of fruit filling and are usually dumped into a pan, stirred and baked.

I first tried it when my aunt gave me an amazing recipe for Pumpkin Dump Cake that quickly become a fall favorite and led us to make a Cherry Dump cake recipe and today’s Peach Dump Cake. We love peach treats in our home (and especially Peach Cobbler) so we knew this would be a hit and it was!

And when you are literally dumping everything in a dish and letting it bake – it can’t get any easier. We know this dessert is especially appealing when it’s cool or cold outside, but it’s also appealing in the Spring and Summer because of it’s fruity-ness.

Let’s make a peach dump cake. It’s super easy and printable recipe card can be found below.

The recipe makes 8-10 servings.

Prep Time: 5 mins Bake Time: 55 mins Total time: 1 hour


Here is everything you will need to make a regular peach dump cake with canned fruit.

3 ingredients dump cake, peaches, dry cake mix, unsalted butter with casserole dish and cooking spray
  • 1 can of peaches in heavy syrup or peach pie filling (if you are a hardcore peach lover, you may use 2 cans of peaches… just drain the second can of syrup)
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (If you don’t have a box of yellow cake mix on hand, white, butter or vanilla will do. Just don’t be mixing flavors that will clash.)
  • ¾ cup butter (while butter will taste best in the recipe, you can use oil if you prefer)

You will also need

  • 9×13 baking dish
  • cooking spray or Crisco to coat baking dish


First preheat oven to 350 F  (180°C). Then cut the butter into chunks and melt. Use the microwave in 30 second intervals, or melt in a small pan over low-medium heat.

Coat your casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray or grease the dish.

Dump in your canned peaches in syrup. Spread the fruit filling out. If you opt to use two cans of sliced peaches, make sure to drain one of them.

Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over the top of the peaches and spread out.

drizzle melted butter
unsalted butter, melted

Pour melted butter evenly over the top of the cake mix layer. Cover as much surface as you can, without getting too fussy.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 55 minutes. When top is bubbly and edges are golden brown it is done. The fruit bubbles up and cooks the dry mix from the bottom up, while the melted butter works it’s way down. 

Cool for about 10 minutes to serve the peach dump cake warm or cool to room temperature.  Top individual servings with a scoop of  vanilla ice cream on top or a big dollop of whipped cream.


The dump cake is good for a 3-4 days in the refrigerator, but then it should be tossed. [ref] Like a pie, this should not be left out at room temperature for extended periods of time. If it is all getting eaten in an afternoon, there is no need to chill it.

To refrigerate, store leftovers in an airtight container or place the casserole dish in the fridge covered well with plastic wrap. This should be done promptly after the dump cake has cooled (within 2 hours).

Can I use Fresh Peaches?

Yes, you can make the peach dump cake recipe with fresh peaches, but with changes of course. I highly recommend trying it during peach season.

You will need 5-6 peaches, peeled, de-pitted and sliced. The sliced peaches are then tossed with ¼ cup of brown sugar (add ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, if you like as well).

Frozen peach slices can also be used in the same manner. Simply toss the frozen peaches with the brown sugar.

Top with cake mix and butter as above.

NOTE: You may need to adjust bake time, as these options will take a little longer to bake.

Can I use peaches in light syrup?

Yes, though the thicker syrup is recommended. Light syrup will work fine.
