This is advice to others who might be turned off by previous comments. Dump cake is not somethig Jessica invented. The first one I made had cherry pie filling (yum), and I have tried blueberry, apple, and peach pie filling. The cherry dump cake recipe uses cinnamon; therefore, I use plenty with all of the pie fillings. Also, don't bother cutting the butter; just melt it. Vary the amount of butter depending your taste. (Real butter makes a big difference.) I like cake mix on the top and bottom. Experiment. Blueberry, apple, and peach pie filling might need added sweetener or sugar; just taste it before assemblying the cake. Don't expect an actual cake to pop out of the oven; expect a cobbler. If you're not pleased, try changing something (i.e. the amount of butter, coverage of the butter, sweetener, cooking time, etc.) Read More

I am sorry this tasted like baking soda and baking powder. I have to agree with a past review maybe if you actually make the mix with the oil and eggs then pour it over it would take the taste of baking soda away. Read More

If you notice this is my 2nd review. I did what others stated about melting the butter instead of thinly slicing.. NO WAY...Came out way soggy & i even drained a lil juice since I was trying the melted butter way. NOPE not for me.. The other is a little time consuming because you have to cover all AREAS with thinly sliced butter or will have dry patches. The time is worth it to me. Did not like the melted butter way, wish I did a lot quicker.. but nope... read my other review on this because this is outta this world good!!!! Read More

I LOVE to bake. I bake a lot of recipes that are very involved and time-consuming. My father explained a cake to me he saw on a cooking show and wanted it for Fathers Day. I, of course, turned to AllRecipes.com and found this recipe. I was a little hesitant because it seemed way too easy. I made it and followed some other reviewers suggestions and added 1/2 cup brown sugar sprinkled on top followed by the cinnamon. My husband and my sister-in-law wouldn't shut up about it!! I can't believe slaving over a stove making all of these fancy things - and this is the one he absolutely loves - go figure! Thanks - I'll be making this over and over and over.... Read More

This cake was so good. I changed the recipe a little though. Instead of just adding the dry cake mix on top of the peaches I mixed the cake mix with the eggs and the oil and then I spread the cake mix over the peaches. I also sprinkled cinnamon over the peaches. Very delicious served with vanilla ice cream on top. Read More

I am used to making peach cobbler from scratch, so I was hesitant to try this recipe but did so since I did not have alot of time the day I was making dinner for friends. Everybody loved it and I received just as many compliments when I make the homemade version! I read the reviews and also put a stick of butter in the freezer before grating on top of the cobbler. I also used the butter recipe yellow cake mix and used 3 cans of the peaches (only used the syrup of 2 cans). I added brown sugar, vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg to give it that extra something. It was a big hit and I have already made 3 times for guests. Try and with the little extra ingredients you won't be disappointed. Read More

Great recipe. Loved the ease of preparation and inexpensive items found in most kitchen pantry's. Made the recipe exactly as written and it was wonderful, but I have since customized it to my family's preference. Increased the peaches to 2.5 cans and drained the syrup from the 3rd can only (we like more peaches), used peaches in LIGHT syrup and I haven't been able to tell the difference. Sprinkled cinnamon over peaches before adding the cake mix and then finished the recipe with a 1/3 cup dark brown sugar on top of the cake mix, followed by the the cinnamon and finally chilled a cube of butter and grated it over the top (handheld cheese grater works wonders for this). This spreads the butter more evenly and allows it to achieve a crystalized finish. Rave reviews every time! Read More

I have made this recipe for many years and my family loves it. I partially drain the peaches and mine is never soggy. I also find it easier to melt the butter or margarine and drizzle it over the top. Read More

I've made this several times and it's a good easy dessert. To cut down on the "sweetness" use peaches in very light syrup instead of heavy syrup. Read More
