Dump Cobbler Dump Cake FAQs
A dump cake is essentially a type of cobbler recipe where you “dump” all of the ingredients into a baking dish, involving very little effort. It is a super easy dessert and oh-so-delicious. It gets its name because you literally dump all the ingredients into a baking dish. No mixing bowl is necessary.
You could use canned peaches, but fresh peaches have so much more flavor and are easy to prepare. I prefer fresh peaches when in season but have also used canned peaches.
Bisquick Peach Cobbler
Instead of cake mix, you can also make a peach cobbler with Bisquick.
- Mix 2 cups of Bisquick with 2 cups of milk and 1 cup of melted butter (about 2 sticks of butter melted).
- Pour over the top, and bake as instructed above.
- This version is also amazing. It has a bit of a thicker consistency but it also very good.
