Peach Cobbler Dump Cake
This dump cake reminds me a lot of Peach Cobbler or a peach crisp. It’s the kind of cake you eat in a big bowl with a spoon. Add some vanilla ice cream on top or a hearty helping of whipped cream and you have a dessert that amounts to summer in a bowl.
It may taste like summer, but since this Peach Cobbler Dump Cake uses canned peaches you can make it all year long. No need to wait for peach season to enjoy this peachy keen dessert.
Ingredients At A Glance
You only need four ingredients to make Peach Dump Cake. I promise. Four. Really!
