Peaches and cream dumb cake

This is a version of an easy dessert, frequently called “dump” cake because everything is “dumped” into the pan.  In my case, we always called it “dumb” cake because it could be made by the dumbest person in the kitchen imaginable.  It’s easy and delicious, and the topping, while it sounds peculiar, is absolutely the most perfect addition to a peach dumb cake.

Peach Dumb Cake

  • 3 cans sliced or diced peaches, packed in juice
  • 1 yellow or white (vanilla) cake mix
  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine

Dump peaches into a 9×13 cake pan, juice and all.   Sprinkle cake mix on top.  Cut margarine into thin slices and distribute evenly over the top of the cake mix topped fruit.  Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and bubbly.  Remove from oven and let stand 5-30 minutes before serving.  Spoon out into small dishes and top with a dollop of Cinnamon Cream. (recipe follows)

Cinnamon Cream

  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine sour cream, sugar and cinnamon.  Let stand at room temperature 30-60 minutes to combine flavors and dissolve sugar.  Serve approximately on top of a serving of Peach Dumb Cake.
