Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix Tips
- You can add more than just peaches to this recipe! Peaches pair well with berries – especially cherries, blackberries, and blueberries – and also with nuts, like chopped pecans, hazelnut, walnuts, or almonds. Nuts give it a nice crunch and it becomes more like a peach crisp.
- In a pinch, make this recipe even easier by using peach pie filling or cans of peaches.
- If you want to add more flavor you can add your favorite spices. I have tried it with nutmeg and ground cinnamon when I want to mix things up. I add ½ teaspoon of each.

Peach 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.
How to Store Leftovers
Let this easy peach dump cake recipe come to room temperature and add it to an airtight container. It can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.
When you are ready to reheat it, you can microwave it for approximately 4 minutes. Enjoy!
