  • 9 x 13 baking dish
  • Wooden Spoon
  • can opener
  • oven (adjusted to the center rack position)


  • 29 ounces Peach slices in juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • 18.25 ounces Yellow Cake Mix
  • cup light brown sugar
  • 12 tablespoons butter unsalted, cut into thinly slice pats


  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  • Add peaches and all juice to the bottom of the dish. Add vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and give it a gentle stir.
  • Sprinkle cake mix over peaches mixture. Using a wooden spoon, gently incorporate the juice into the cake mix to moisten it. Sprinkle the top of the moistened cake mix with brown sugar evenly.
  • Evenly distrubute butter pads to the top of the cake.
  • Place dump cake into the oven uncovered and bake for 45-55 minutes. The cake will become a deep golden brown once done and will look crispy on top with a fluffy inner. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving warm.
