Ingredients

  • 1 stick of butter (room temp)

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour

Recipe

Now all you need to do is:

Step 1: Prepare

Gather all of the ingredients you need and preheat your oven to 350F. While the oven is preheating, grease a baking pan (preferably around 9 inches).

Step 2: Make the cake batter

Add the butter and white sugar to a bowl and beat well for a few minutes. You want the mixture to be fluffy. If using a mixer, turn to low and add the eggs individually. Only add the next egg until the previous egg has been mixed in. Once mixed, it’s time to add the vanilla extract and sour cream. Stir well until you have a smooth batter. In a separate bowl, add the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well, and add the ingredients to the batter.

Step 3: Bake

Add the sugar and cinnamon to a bowl and mix well. Add half of the batter to your prepared pan. Now place half of the sliced peaches and around two-thirds of the cinnamon mix. Now pour the rest of the batter on top, alongside the remaining peaches, cinnamon mixture, and chopped nuts. Place in the center of your oven for around 50-55 minutes. To check whether it’s ready, insert a toothpick or skewer into the center of the cake, and it should come out clean.

FAQs

How to Make Peach Cobbler With Cake Mix?

It's super easy to make peach cobbler with a cake mix! The only additional ingredients you need are peaches, cinnamon, sugar and butter. The cinnamon and sugar are to add flavoring to the peaches and the cake. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and then goes into the oven for a similar time to the peach cake.

How to Make Peach Dump Cake?

Dump cakes are incredibly simple. Dump cakes usually consist of a cake mix, plus a filling. They get their name because they're usually poured into a bowl, mixed and then dumped into a pan. The only ingredients you'd need for a peach dump cake are yellow cake mix, peaches and butter.

How to Make a Peach Cobbler Pound Cake?

Pound cakes are chunky, yet soft and moist. They're usually Bundt shaped and drizzled with a vanilla glaze. Other than that, the ingredients of a peach cobbler pound cake are very similar to that of a peach cake. 

What's the Difference Between a Cobbler and a Dump Cake?

The difference between the two is simple. A cobbler is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients and no shortcuts. Whereas a dump cake is made using a cake mix that's bought from a grocery store. This skips a few steps from making a cake from scratch, but still tastes just as good. 

Do You Have to Refrigerate Peach Dump Cake?

Yes. It's best to refrigerate any cake that uses the amount of fresh fruit that's required for a peach dump cake. If left at room temperature, the fruit will spoil much quicker - and definitely will not last as long. If you refrigerate your peach dump cake, it will usually stay fresh for around 5 days. Be sure that it's covered in the refrigerator and in an airtight container for best results.
