This 2-ingredient peach cake is as delicious as it is easy to make. Although it only has two ingredients, it explodes with flavor with every bite. If someone asks me how to describe it, I might say it’s like a cross between a cake and a peach cobbler.
Regardless of how it’s described, it’s one of my favorite dessert recipes. After all, I love peaches and anything flavored with them.
Okay, so in case you’re wondering what the 2 ingredients are, I’ll tell you now: peach pie filling and cake mix. For the full recipe, you can click on the jump-to-recipe button beneath the title above or scroll to the bottom of this post.
Peach Dump Cake
This yummy cake is also often called a peach dump cake. I don’t like the sound of that, but I get it. Basically, all you have to do is dump the 2 ingredients into a bowl and stir.
2-Ingredient Peach Cake Ingredients
As the name implies, you only need two ingredients to make this delicious dessert. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Yellow cake mix
- Peach pie filling
For exact measurements of each ingredient and full directions, go to the recipe card at the bottom of the page. You can even print out the card by using the “print” button.
Yes, I realize that both of those ingredients have other ingredients in them. But look on the package of anything, and you’ll see that most packaged food has a list of more than one item.
As for this peach cake, it’s delicious and so easy to make you might feel guilty that you didn’t have to work all day for the results. And trust me when I say that the results are absolutely scrumptious.
If you don’t have yellow cake mix, you can use either white cake mix or angel food cake mix. The angel food mix will give it a lighter, spongier texture.
After it cools, you can serve it without anything on top, or you can add some whipped cream. That would be super easy.
Another thing you can do is frost it with your favorite frosting, either canned or homemade. I typically make this peach cake when I’m in a hurry, so I used canned frosting.
For my topping, I used a combination of vanilla frosting and peach preserves. So my version—at least this time—is very … well, very peachy.
How to Make a 2-Ingredient Peach Cake
Since I wanted this cake to be thin, I used my 9”x13” pan.
If you read my other recipes, you’ll know that I have used a smaller pan in the past. That made the cake very thick, which is also good.
After preheating the oven, I sprayed my pan with nonstick cooking spray. Then I set about the process of mixing the ingredients—all 2 of them!
In a medium-size mixing bowl, dump the entire package of cake mix. Since the cake has only 2 ingredients you don’t have to worry about the directions on the package.
Next, open the cans of peach pie filling and pour them into the bowl.
Stir to mix the ingredients.
Make sure they’re well mixed.
Finally, pour the mixture into the prepared pan. It’s that easy!
Bake the cake until it’s done.
After you pull it out of the oven, set it on a baking rack to cool for about 30 minutes.
If you plan to frost it, make sure it’s close to room temperature.
Otherwise, the frosting will melt.
Since I wanted this cake to be very peachy, I mixed some of the preserves into the frosting.
Then I frosted the cake.
After I frosted the cake, I put the remaining preserves in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften them up.
Next, I drizzled the preserves over the cake and smoothed it out with the back of a spoon.
Now your cake is ready to be served! If you like peach desserts, you’ll love this cake!
Everything I make is pretty easy, so you don’t have to have special skills. However, if you make this shrimp and grits dish, everyone will think you’re a brilliant cook.
This baked pecan-crusted fish is another dish that looks and tastes more difficult than it is. You’ll have folks oohing and aahing over this one.
