What is a Dump Cake?
A dump cake gets it’s name from how you make it – you DUMP it into a pan instead of mixing the ingredients separately and then placing in a pan. This makes a dump cake the ULTIMATE EASY DESSERT! You can prep it in just a few minutes then put it in the oven while you continue on with other meal prep! I love making dump cakes even for a weeknight dinner, and my family thinks it’s a special treat!
Is a Dump Cake a Cobbler?
Yes, a dump cake is an old fashioned recipe similar to a cobbler or crumble in that you use the cake mix as the topping instead of mixing the ingredients together. If you want to test it for yourself, I have a really great Bourbon Peach Cobbler recipe!
What Kind of Fruit Can You Use in a Dump Cake?
This easy dump cake recipe uses a combination of fresh fruit and canned fruit. You can use fresh fruit, canned fruit, or frozen fruit in a dump cake. The most important part is that you have LIQUID to bubble up through the cake mix. If you have fresh or frozen fruit, make sure you cook the fruit down a little bit on the stove to make juice for your dump cake.
What Kind of Cake Mix Do You Use For a Dump Cake Recipe?
You can use whatever you have on hand, but a white, vanilla, or yellow cake works best! For my Peach Dump Cake with Berries, I used an inexpensive white cake mix.
How Do You Make a Dump Cake?
You literally dump the ingredients into a cake pan – starting with the fruit.
Then you add some spices (cinnamon and cardamom for this recipe!)
Add the cake mix on top of the fruit.
And then pour the melted butter over the top of the cake mix.
Even though it looks crazy, that’s all it takes before it goes in the oven!
How Long Does a Berry Peach Dump Cake Take to Make?

How Long Does a Dump Cake Take to Bake?
Just under an hour! You bake the dump cake at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes until the top is dark golden brown and the whole thing is bubbling through.
