Ingredients That You’ll Need:

The Pioneer Woman Peach Dump Cake is quick and easy to make, with just 5 ingredients! They’re straightforward, and you may already have a couple on hand!

  • Canned Peaches – For this Pioneer Woman Peach Dump Cake recipe, you can use either peach in heavy or lite syrup, juice, or even canned peach pie filling! Make sure to reserve 1/2 cup of the peach syrup or juice.
  • Butter – The butter must be melted and cooled for this Pioneer Woman Peach Dump Cake recipe. You can use unsalted or salted butter – it’s entirely up to your preference!
  • Yellow Cake Mix – Yellow cake mix makes the perfect buttery topping for this Pioneer Woman Peach Dump Cake! I recommend yellow cake mix over white cake mix as the flavor is much better suited.
  • Light Brown Sugar – This is optional but recommended! The brown sugar mixes with the butter to create a caramelized, crispy topping.
  • Nutmeg – I love nutmeg in this because its gentle flavor perfectly complements the peaches! Nutmeg is optional here – you can leave it out or swap it for cinnamon.

What’s The Difference Between Peach Dump Cake And Peach Cobbler?

Peach dump cake and peach cobbler are almost the same! The main distinction is that a peach cobbler is normally topped with a biscuit or pie crust, but a peach dump cake is topped with a cake! Both are quite tasty and showcase the distinct peach taste!

How To Make Pioneer Woman Peach Dump Cake?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and drain 1/2 cup of peach juice to be poured with melted butter over the cake mix. * Increase the quantity of melted butter to 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) if using peach pie filling.
  2. Coat the bottom and edges of the baking dish with melted butter, a light coating of cooking oil, or nonstick cooking spray. Spread the peaches evenly on the dish’s base.
  3. Spread the dry cake mix evenly over the peaches, carefully pressing into the borders. Do not combine!
  4. Drizzle melted butter over the top of the dry cake mix, ensuring that as much surface area as possible is soaked. Repeat with 1/2 cup of syrup or juice reserve.
  5. (Optional) Sprinkle a uniform coating of light brown sugar, nutmeg, or cinnamon over the top of the sponge cake.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 45 minutes, then remove aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The dump cake is done when the fruit filling is bubbling around the edges, the cake topping is gently brown, and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake removes crumbs rather than batter.
  7. Allow the baked dump cake to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

You may also use a microwave! Scoop individual portions into bowls, cover with paper towels, and microwave for 30 seconds at a time until warm.

Recipe Tips

  • To ensure that the Pioneer Woman Peach Dump cake is moist, save the liquids from the canned peaches.
  • When using canned peaches with heavy syrup or peach pie filling, do not drain the cans after retaining the 1/2 cup of juice.
  • If using canned peaches in lite syrup or juice, one can be drained after reserving the juice.
  • Stir the ingredients only once! You must not mix the ingredients if you want that lovely, buttery golden cake topping! However, be careful to get as much of the cake mix as possible to avoid floury, dry patches.
  • Nutmeg is optional but recommended!
  • The same quantity of cinnamon may also be used to spice up this Pioneer Woman Peach Dump cake. If you prefer, use a baking spice blend, such as my pumpkin pie spice. You may also add a little vanilla extract to the peaches for added flavor!
