The unofficial start of summer this week means graduation parties, summer vacations, potluck cookouts, and holiday parties are on the horizon. The next few weeks are jam-packed with celebrations and I’ve got an easy dessert cake that is perfect for any occasion. Which means this is the perfect time for a Peach Cobbler Dump Cake.
June is here and I already have a packed schedule planned with a graduation party, a weekend road trip to the Gulf Shore in Flordia, and a trip back home to Wisconsin with a much-needed vacation at our family lake house.
Since my schedule will keep me busy and on my toes, I need quick dessert recipes to bring along for the occasion.
My grandma has been making this Peach Cobbler Dump Cake since I was young and it was always a favorite in my youth. I usually make this cake mix cobbler on last minutes notice for cookouts and summer parties and it’s always a hit.
Truly, this 3 -ingredient cake couldn’t be any easier to make. The instructions are simple; just dump canned peaches into a casserole dish and top with store-bought yellow cake mix and butter.
It wouldn’t be cobbler without ice cream so go ahead and add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. The cold cream of the ice cream transforms this peach cobbler and is the perfect combination hot out of the oven!
What is a dump cake?
A dump cake is a quick and easy dessert that gets its name from the method used to prepare it. The ingredients are literally “dumped” into a baking pan in layers and then baked.
What is the proper storage for a Peach Cobbler Dump Cake?
Cooling: Allow the cake to cool completely before storing. This helps prevent condensation, which could make the cake soggy.
Refrigerating: Once the cake has cooled, it should be stored in the refrigerator. Cover the cake with plastic wrap or store it in an airtight container to protect it from absorbing other flavors in the fridge.
Freezing: If you want to store the cake for a longer period, you can freeze it. Wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place it in a heavy-duty freezer bag.
In the refrigerator, the cake should last for about 4-5 days. If frozen, it’s best to consume it within 3 months for optimal taste and texture.
Remember to serve the cake at room temperature or warmed, according to your preference.
What goes well with Peach Cobbler Dump Cake?
Ice Cream: A scoop of vanilla ice cream is a classic pairing with any warm, fruity dessert. The cold, creamy ice cream complements the warm cake perfectly.
Whipped Cream: A dollop of whipped cream on top of the cake can add a light, creamy element to contrast the sweet, dense cake.
Custard: Pouring a little custard over the cake can create a delicious, creamy combination.
Fresh Fruit: Serving the cake with some fresh peaches or berries can enhance the fruit flavor and add a fresh component to the dish.
Beverages: A glass of cold milk, a cup of coffee, or even a dessert wine can pair well with the sweet flavors of the cake.
Peach Cobbler Dump Cake is the quintessential summer dessert for potlucks. If you’re looking to bring a simple dessert that everyone will love, then this is the dessert for you!
This casserole cake even doubles as the perfect dessert for Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day.
