Peaches are my favorite fruit, so you can imagine my excitement when Summer rolls around and peaches come in season. There’s a peach orchard not far from my house, and they harvest peaches there that are to die for. Once they’re ripe, we head over and buy a huge box full. You’d think that we’d be rolling in peaches for months with the amount we buy, but we usually end up eating them all within the first week or so (we freeze a bunch of them so that we can use them in smoothies once we run out of fresh).
Recipes that include peaches are abundant, and we try out a large amount of them each Summer. There are a few recipes that have become family favorites and one of them is this super easy 4-Ingredient Fresh Peach Dump Cake. I love this recipe so much because it can be thrown together in no time, and as long as you have the fresh peaches, it’s pretty likely you already have the other ingredients in your kitchen.
This recipe is a combination of a few recipes I found online. When I first searched for a Peach Dump Cake, I was met with recipe after recipe asking for canned peaches in heavy syrup. Gag. (Okay, not really “gag,” I like canned peaches, too. And using the canned type works great during the winter when peaches go out of season. But I definitely prefer using freshly picked peaches when I have them on hand.) In addition to that, I’ve always loved oats in my cobbler, but I had no luck finding a recipe that included them. Because of that, I decided to experiment a little and come up with my own version. Let me know what you think!
4-Ingredient Fresh Peach Dump Cake
1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
1 Stick Butter, Melted
1 Cup Rolled Oats
About 5 Fresh Peaches, Sliced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan, then add all of the sliced peaches.
In a medium bowl, mix together dry cake mix, oats, and melted butter.
Dump the crumbly cake mix and oat mixture over the top of the peaches, and sprinkle on a little cinnamon.
Place in the oven and let bake for 25 minutes.
I don’t think that it can get any easier or yummier than this recipe. You basically just “dump” all of the ingredients in a pan and bake it. Talk about my kind of recipe! This is perfect for putting all of those peaches to use, and is a great last-minute dessert if you want to whip something up but are short on time and ingredients. Also, you can always use canned peaches or substitute the peaches out for a different fruit entirely!
