Funny story: I don’t like peaches. I don’t like the way they taste or the way they smell…basically I just don’t like them at all. BUT….I ate this cake.

That means I either do like peaches and don’t think I do or this cake is very, very good. I like to think it’s mostly the latter (and maybe a teeny bit of the former). But probably, it’s because the peaches are combined with blueberries and cake mix and butter.

I mean…is there a better combination than cake mix and butter? I don’t think so.

Are you wondering why I would name a cake a Dump Cake? Trust me, I know how weird the name is. However, the name comes from the method: you just dump everything into a pan and bake. Dump cakes are the easiest kind of cake recipe…but really they’re no cakes. They’re more like a crumble or crisp recipe that tastes like cake because the crumble starts with a cake mix.

Besides the cake mix, which can be any flavor, you can use any fruit and/or pie filling to make the filling of the cake. I’ve made cherry berry dump cake and cherry pineapple dump cake, as well as cherry peach. I really love dump cakes because they’re so versatile and easy to take to parties or serve with ice cream.

Also, it turns out that Blueberry Peach Dump Cake can make you like peach when you don’t like peach. Who knew?!

When you’re making a dump cake, the best part is there is no mixing bowl. You just need the pan you’re going to bake the cake in, usually a casserole dish or a 9×13-inch pan. You literally dump the can of pie filling and fruit into the pan, and then dump the cake mix on top.

You may wonder how the cake mix turns into a crumble from just pie filling – and that’s because of the main ingredient: Butter. Glorious, glorious butter.

Lots of butter is placed all over the top of the cake and while it’s baking, magic happens. The butter melts into the cake mix causing it to become crunchy and soft all at the same time, forming a glorious crumble crust for the fruit.

Dump Cakes are the perfect marriage of cake and cobbler, paired with your favorite fruit. Blueberry Peach Dump Cake is the perfect fruit crisp for summer!

I have a secret to make sure that the butter fully covers the dump cake during baking, and it came from a reader.

What’s the butter secret when making a dump cake?

Freezing it, then grating it. That’s right – freeze the butter then grate it over the crust. Freezing and grating it ensures an even coating. I’ve tried slicing it small and melting it and they all work, but the freeze and grate method has worked the best.

I absolutely love all dump cakes and, math nerd that I am, I know there are more permutations and combinations of recipes than I can count. Pick a cake mix flavor and pick some fruit and you have dump cake recipes for years to come!

Tips for the perfect dump cake:

  • Freeze the butter in sticks and grate it frozen.
  • For this Blueberry Peach Dump Cake, I’d use a yellow or white cake mix.
  • If you can’t find peach pie filling, use two cans of peaches and a can of blueberry pie filling. It’s easy to mix and match.
  • Switch up the fillings and cake mix to your liking. I can’t wait to try a chocolate version!

  1. My dump cake is famous at my husband’s work. This is what I do differently. I mix the melted butter and cake mix in a little bowl. Then I pat pieces in my hand and place them over the fruit. Just cover it all and fill in spaces. Then I put the fairly finely chopped nuts over that. No dry cake spots and its evenly covered. It works like a dream.

  2. I found this recipe over three years ago and I still make this cake. I have a request to bake one next weekend for a birthday party. Everyone that has tried a piece just loves it.

  3. Sounds great! When I make these I want less fat so I use half the butter (love the grating idea) and the other half applesauce.

  4. I think there’s a third choice when people say they don’t like a food but are surprised when they like it in a certain recipe. In this recipe, maybe it just doesn’t taste like peaches! lol

  5. I love dump cakes! This looks absolutely delicious!

  6. Oh my goodness….this taste just like summer ….well at least what summer tastes like in the south ! : )

    Dump cakes must of been born in the south….a church function or cook out isn’t possible without 3-4 different dump cakes. But somehow, I’ve never had one with fruit, how have I lived !?

    Thanks Dorothy !!!
