Peach Dump Cake Cobbler

June 27, 2012Teresa

Peach Dump Cake Cobbler is awesome. All the Dump Cake recipes are heavenly and this one is no exception. I’ve made Dump Cakes with every imaginable combination over the years and all of them turn out so spectacularly.

When I first posted this recipe over a year ago I made it with fresh peaches because I was trying to use them up. Recently, I made two more versions of this Peach Dump Cake Cobbler, one with regular peach pie filling and another one with the new peaches and creme pie filling that I had never seen before. Both were wonderful but the one using peaches and creme pie filling was beyond marvelous! The pictures below reflect using that particular pie filling.

I love Dump Cakes and I have several versions of them. The first time I tasted a Dump Cake was at a potluck labor day picnic in 1978. The woman who brought it used peach pie filling and apple pie filling. She sprinkled hers with cinnamon and also added the coconut and nuts. It was absolutely delicious.

Here are some wonderful Dump Cake combinations:

1) cherries, pineapple, coconut and nuts

2) cherry pie filling, blueberry pie filling, crushed pineapple, coconut and almonds

3) apple pie filling, cranberries with coconut and pecans

4) fruit cocktail, crushed pineapple and coconut and nuts

5) canned pears, apples, peaches and pineapple, coconut and nuts

6) strawberry pie filling, coconut, and nuts….

You get the idea. It’s a very versatile recipe and the more fruit in the batch the better it tastes! I have no idea who originated the dump cake recipes. I didn’t.

I got this recipe from a friend back in the early 80s and have enjoyed it probably hundreds of times. It’s a great quick and easy dessert to prepare for someone when you are taking them a meal–which is what I did with this one–twice!

Peach Dump Cake Cobbler is a featured recipe on  Recipe Lion. You can find the post here.

Peach Dump Cake Cobbler a la mode is a dessert worth writing home about!

Doesn’t Peach Dump Cake Cobbler look amazing? It sure tastes amazing. I don’t think I can rave enough about how delicious this dessert was with the peaches and creme pie filling. I tried it on a lark and it was sensational.

This cobbler-type dessert has a wonderful topping and it’s filled with gooey ingredients from the peach pie filling. The nuts and coconut add texture and taste. None of your guests will turn down this delicious cobbler!

Here’s what I did.

Peach Dump Cake Cobbler - IMG_0392.jpg

Spread three cans of peaches and creme pie filling into the bottom of a 9×13″ glass baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Sprinkle with coconut. Sprinkle with nuts. Any kind will do.

Spread a box of yellow cake mix over top. I usually use butter-recipe yellow cake mix. Drizzle with 2 sticks melted butter.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. In this picture you can see the creme from the peaches and creme pie filling has bubbled up from under the crust.

The peaches and creme pie filling was sensational, but this recipe is good with any kind of pie fillings including homemade pie fillings. If you make homemade pie fillings from plum, peach, or apple trees, or you pick berries–all will work in this recipe. Mix and match as you desire!

Peach Dump Cake Cobbler is so easy to make. You can have this ready for the oven in 5 minutes and baked in another 45. So this dessert is ready in an hour!

We like our dump cakes served with ice cream, whipped topping, and even plain! Every bite of this delicious Peach Dump Cake Cobbler was mouthwatering. Each recipe makes about 15 servings–although most people will want LARGE servings and extras!

Here’s the original recipe.

    Hello,

    My family doesn’t like coconut or nuts can I omit these?

    Thank you

      Hi, Marla. You can omit both and the cobbler will still be terrific.

    I needed something quick and easy to make for dessert, so I made this recipe with the Lucky Leaf peaches and creme pie filling. It was wonderful! Teresa, thank you so much for posting so many great suggestions for various dump cake combinations. They are ideal for a beginner cook. It gives me lots of options for creating different desserts to share. I am so happy that I can bring a delicious contribution to a potluck that everybody enjoys!

      You’re welcome, Mary. You can literally make this basic recipe using almost ANY combination of pie filling or canned fruits. It’s wonderful with apple/peach/pear combo. My Texas Cobbler using cherry, blueberry and pineapple is another favorite. And one of these days, I’m going to get brave enough and make it with the chocolate pudding and pie filling! —throw in a few snickers or oreos…..yum!

    I’ve made several of these dump cakes and while they are very good, the fast of box cake is prominent (I don’t care for box cake). Is there any other way to do these dump cake.

      Hi, Ida, thanks for stopping by. You can make up your own cake mix from scratch. I’m sure there are recipes online that will give you the basics of what goes in the dry mix.

    Does the creme pie filling come in a can? If you make your own creme pie filling, which is cooked on the stove first, can it be used in this recipe and baked?

    1. Teresa

      July 11, 2015 at 9:58 am

      Hi, Mary Ann. Yes, I bought the Peaches and creme pie filling from Lucky Leaf. You can also just use regular peach pie filling. Both work really well. Use whatever is easier for you.

      You probably could, Veronica, but you’d still have to purchase a whole box of cake mix even though you’d only use have of it. On the other hand, you can use half for this recipe and half for another delicious dump cake! 🙂

      June 6, 2015 at 10:42 am

      Dottie, I use a sugar called “Whey Low” which is for diabetics. ( I get it online)Betty Crocker has a sugar free cake mix, yellow and chocolate. I make my own fruit filling using whey low and the sugar free cake mix. Works GREAT, and is sugar free.
      Good Luck, and happy eating.
