This incredible slow cooker peach dump cake is super easy to make. It’s perfect for anyone who is limited in both time and ingredients.
Making a dump cake in the slow cooker or crock-pot is so easy, and the results are super delicious. It’s an excellent way to get a delightful dessert cooking while you do other things.
Much like all dump cakes, this cooks to have gooey bits of fruit in a delicious fluffy cake. Unlike most cakes, you will need to scoop it out of the slow cooker as you’re probably going to have a hard time slicing it.

Tips & Tricks
You can use any brand of yellow cake mix but make sure you get the measurements roughly correct for the best results.
As for the fruit, you can try either fresh or tinned peaches. It really just depends on what’s available to you and how expensive the fruit is at your supermarket. I usually use tinned as it’s generally readily available and very affordable.
If you decide to use fresh fruit, you shouldn’t need to do any extra steps except for slicing them and removing the stones. They will produce fluid as they cook that will seep into the cake mixture. It’s a delicious combination that I highly recommend that you try.
You can change the type of cake mix that you use. For example, a spice cake mix is super delicious as you get all the amazing spices mixed with the flavors of the peaches. There are quite a few different types of boxed cake mix that you can buy so feel free to experiment.

Reheating the Leftovers
If you love leftovers that taste great, then this dump cake will please you. Keep any leftovers in the fridge and heat in the microwave or a hot oven. It should be fine in the refrigerator for three to five days before needing to be frozen or discarded.
You can also freeze this cake, but it might not reheat the greatest. I recommend freezing for a maximum of six to eight months.

Slow Cooker Peach Dump Cake Recipe
- 400g (14 oz.) peaches, drained
- 400g (14 oz.) yellow cake mix
- 110g (4 oz.) butter, cubed
- In a slow cooker, add the peaches and top with the cake mix.
- Scatter the butter across the top of the cake mix.
- Cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- You can swap the tinned peaches for fresh if you have any around. Both will work out just fine, but for the best results, fresh always works better.
- I don’t recommend adding any more sugar to the fruit as it will be sweet enough as is.
- You can make some yellow cake mix at home, but I recommend spending the time and making something like the peach cobbler instead.
- Leaving the peach liquid in the slow cooker will result in a very soggy but flavorsome cake. I highly recommend that you drain the liquid first.
Note: I use a 5.5L (6 Quart) slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker, then you might need to adjust the ingredients.
