Peach Dump Cake

I love peach cobbler every which way and plan on making several peach cobblers while the weather is cool. I'm going to try several different recipes that I have found on the internet and I also have one that I'm going to make that was Scott's grandma's recipe. I can't wait for that one. Of course none of this helps right now since I'm dieting. In fact, this is pure torture...I have no idea why I'm doing this to myself. This Peach Dump cake is very similar to the Ooey Gooey Pineapple Upside Down cake that my sister Denise makes. I will post about that later but for now, here is the latest and greatest and easiest and closest thing you'll get to cobbler in a hurry.

Peach Dump Cake

2 (16 ounce) cans peaches in heavy syrup
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Empty peaches into the bottom of one 9x13 inch pan. Cover with the dry cake mix and press down firmly. Cut butter into small pieces and place on top of cake mix. Sprinkle top with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 45 minutes.

Let cool slightly and serve warm with ice cream.

O.k., so I made this last night. It made my whole entire home smell SOOO good. Once it was done cooking, I let it set out to cool and then finally, I got a bowl, got a scoop of the cobbler added low calorie vanilla icecream and ate it. IT IS SOOOO GOOD!! OMG, seriously, Jaime, one of the best peach cobblers I have had!! Better than the cobblers I had in N.C. no lie.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe.

DRAIN THE PEACHES! I drained one can but not the other and it was still watery.

I think that I'll try this tonight with a "butter cake" as opposed to a "yellow cake" and see how it turns out.

okay, I have a family reunion (like, tomorrow!!) that I want to bake a cobbler for, and I've been scouring the 'Net for the past month trying to find just the right recipe where I don't have to do a double-crust (my favorite), but one that's quick & easy. I had a co-worker a few years back who did a blackberry Paula Deen cobbler for one of our holiday potlucks..Everyone was asking him for the recipe, it was so D'VINE; I'd make that but I don't want all the seeds from the blackberries! SO...I'm taking a few tips from this one, adding a few of my own (like adding a dash of cinnamon AND nutmeg to the cake mix before I pour it over the fruit plus a dash of vanilla added to a splash of dark rum & spritzed over the final product)! Grabbing my notepad & pen 'cuz I never really "measure" anything when I cook, but I'll probably post the recipe on pinterest later..wish me luck!

Delicious & easy recipe! Followed directions, but took it out 8 minutes early, as it was getting brown on top. It is a keeper.
