What Makes A Dump Cake Different From A Cobbler?

Despite their similarities, dump cake is baked with cake mix. The ingredients are thrown into the baking dish (thus the name!) Cobbler is typically topped with a pie crust or a biscuit. However, because it tastes so similar, this dish can also be termed a cobbler, and the words are sometimes used interchangeably.

Ingredients That You’ll Need:

This very simple Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix just requires three ingredients. And, of course, you may adjust the measurements to match the baking pan you’re using.

  • Peaches: You may use fresh peaches or nectarines, but they must be really ripe and delicious. If you can’t locate ripe peaches, tinned peaches are a good substitute. So you can make this quick peach cobbler with cake mix recipe using fresh or canned peaches (with all the juice in the can included).
  • Cake Mix: In this recipe, you can use yellow cake mix, white cake mix, or vanilla cake mix. Everything works perfectly. If you’re following a gluten-free diet, you can even prepare this cobbler with a gluten-free cake mix. Simply use your favorite homemade cake mix for this recipe.
  • In terms of cake mix quantity, we use 425g Betty Crocker vanilla cake mix for our 9×13-inch (23×33-cm) baking pan. In the United States, a bag of 15.25oz cake mix will suffice.
  • Butter: Use unsalted butter.
  • (Optional) Nuts: The inclusion of nuts in this cake mix cobbler with peaches is optional. We like to top it with chopped almonds or pecans. They lend a lovely nuttiness to the dessert, but you may leave them out if you like.

Can I Make Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix With Canned Peaches?

Yes, canned peaches can be used in this Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix recipe. And the recipe gets much easier and faster as a result. Don’t empty the can of juice. Simply pour it into the pan since it moistens the cake mix as it bakes. You may even save some of the liquid and spread it over the cake mix right before baking.

Can I Use Other Fruits Or Pie Ingredients For Peach Cobbler?

Yes! I frequently replace the fruit layer with pears, apples, and even pie filling! Try it with cherry pie filling for a cherry cobbler, for example!

How To Peel A Peach Quickly?

The thin peel of peaches can be difficult to remove. The most basic way is to carefully lower the fruit into a kettle of boiling water for approximately thirty seconds before transferring it to an ice water bath. The skin will just peel off!

Recipe Tips

  • For this cobbler, try to locate the ripest peaches possible because we need all of their juice. If you can’t locate ripe peaches, use canned peaches with the entire can of liquid.
  • When you use canned peaches, you get a moister dessert that resembles a peach cobbler cake.
  • Depending on the size of your baking pan, you may adjust the amount of cake mix or peach slices. The idea here is to layer peach slices on the bottom of your baking sheet then cake mix on top of those peaches. So, if your baking pan is smaller or larger than ours, modify the measurements accordingly.
  • The baking time will vary based on your oven. After 30 minutes, check to see whether the top is beautifully golden and the nuts are brown. If it still appears undercooked, bake it for a little longer.
  • If you cook this on a hot summer day, save any leftovers in the refrigerator. Before serving, reheat or bring it to room temperature.
