Easy 2-Ingredient Peach Cake Recipe

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.

That’s what makes it easy. If you’ve tried my 2-ingredient apple cake or my decadent 2-ingredient cherry chocolate cake, you know I like easy recipes.

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
Yellow baking mix and 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.

Vanilla frosting and peach preserves

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.

Baking mix in a bowl

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!

Batter in a baking pan

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.

Cake Topping

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!

I am not sure you will receive this since this is an older posting. I love this recipe. I am curious though...Could you make this cake into cupcakes? I know this is supposed to be easy and quick to make but I am helping plan one of my granddaughters birthdays and her theme is "One Sweet Peach". Years ago I made this type of cake with crushed Pineapple and a box of Pineapple supreme cake mix...OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SUPREME!!! I am just curious if you could turn this into cupcakes???

Hi Chanda. I'm not sure how this would turn out in cupcake form because the cake part of it is very dense and moist. But if you try it, please let me know if it works.

Hi Juliana. I'm sorry this didn't work out for you. Please keep in mind that dump cakes are typically gooey in the center when they're done.

Can you make the peach 2 ingredient cake with angel food cake mix?

Hi Kathleen. I think you can with regular angel food cake mix. I tried it with the gluten-free version, and I didn't care for it. However, others have mentioned that they use regular angel food mix for a lot of different dump cakes. Please let me know how it turns out if you try it.

I wonder if you could add some chopped pecans to it? I always put some in my peach cobbler.

Hi Teresa. Absolutely! In fact, I think I'll do that next time I make it! Thanks for the tip!
