Years ago I was in a class called Bible Study Fellowship. I learned so much and had an amazing teacher who made the Bible so plain and understandable for me. During one of our classes Ms. Briscoe (our teacher) used an analogy that involved dump cake. Now I can't remember what she was comparing the process of the dump cake to, but I remember being intrigued by her description of the dump cake. I looked it up as soon as I got home and tried it out for myself. I've been hooked ever since. I have tried several different combinations, but the recipe below for peach dump cake is one of my favorites because it fulfills my peach cobbler craving without all of the work. This is another one of those easy recipes that anyone can do and end up with a great outcome that will satisfy the whole family.
- 2 cans (21 ounces each) Peach Pie Filling
- 1 box Spice Cake Mix
- 2 sticks Butter
- 1 teaspoon Apple Pie Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
Start by spreading peaches in the bottom of your pan.
The peaches by themselves are a little bland so I like to spice them up a little with some seasonings.
Spread one box of cake mix (without mixing it into the peach pie filling) top with sliced butter and add a few sprinkles of additional spices on top. Then place in the oven. After 40 minutes check your cake and put additional butter in any places that still look dry.
Once the dump cake is brown pull out of the oven and allow to cool.
Serve with a bit of cool whip or ice cream. Dump cakes are so much fun to make and the possibilities are endless. Try mixing and matching different pie fillings with different cake mixes.
