Enjoy this dump cake warm, out of the oven, with some fresh whipped topping or vanilla ice cream for the BEST kind of easy holiday dessert.
Before you head to the kitchen to get baking, you’ll need the following, easy to source ingredients.
Cake Mix – You’ll need one box of gingerbread cake mix for this recipe. There are a few varieties available this time of year. You can use any variety between 14-15.25 ounces.
Pie Filling – Premium Lucky Leaf Peach Fruit Filling or Topping is a high-quality premium line of fruit fillings or topping. All of their fruit fillings are Non-GMO, gluten-free, and contain no high fructose corn syrup artificial flavors or color preservatives; they’ve been made with love by cooperative family farmers since 1949!
Butter – Unsalted pats of butter are needed to help bind the cake mix and fruit filling. You will need two sticks of butter sliced and neatly arranged over the dry cake mix. This will help the cake mix bake up to a deep, golden-brown perfection.

Achieving the Perfect Dump Cake
There are some tips for achieving the best dump cake possible!
After you add the gingerbread cake mix over the peach base layer, you will want to take your rubber spatula and gently pat the cake mix into the peach juices. This will help it absorb the initial liquid so it prevents a dry top layer.
Another way to get the perfect dump cake is to evenly distribute the butter pats. Some recipes call for melted butter over the top of a dump cake, but this tends to be problematic because many areas will be left without butter and will be “powdery” even after baking for one hour. You do not want to add too much butter or the end result will be a greasy, wet cake!
This dump cake is delicious when scooped out of the pan warm. You can eat it alone or with some vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. For a real treat, add a sprinkling of cinnamon over the top.
Place any leftover dump cake in an airtight container with a lid once cooled. This will keep unwanted odors from ruining the flavor of your deliciousness! Store it for up to 3 days before eating or refrigerating longer, but I think that if you enjoy this on day one when it’s still crunchy around the edges and has a then it’s absolute perfection.
