American Express Gift Card Winner {Recipe: Easy Peach Dump Cake}

If you’ll recall, American Express launched the search for easy recipes to help celebrate their new American Express Blue Cash Preferred and Everyday cards. American Express had me send a call out to Dine & Dish readers for some of your favorite 6 ingredients or less recipes, and boy did you all come through!

I can say, I am so glad this was a random drawing situation and not a judging contest because there were so many delicious, simple recipes submitted. I am excited to have a collection of easy dessert recipes to turn to now anytime I have the need for something sweet and simple.

The winner, chosen by Random.org, for the $600 American Express Gift Card is Joyce from Ballwin, Missouri. Joyce has always been a stay at home mom / homemaker. Her children are now out of the house but she has 3 grandchildren who keep her busy. Joyce loves to read, play golf and travel.

Joyce’s winning recipe was an Easy Peach Dump Cake. She was introduced to this simple recipe by some ladies at church and she has been making it ever since. Thank you, Joyce, for submitting your favorite 6 ingredient or less recipe to help celebrate with American Express. I hope you enjoy your gift card!

Peach Dump Cake

I’m going to be 100% honest with you as I was very skeptical of this recipe. 3 ingredients? How on earth can it be any good? I’m eating my words along with this Peach Dump Cake because it is soooo good, especially for how simple it is. It is almost like a peach cobbler and goes very well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped topping. I think it could also easily be made using fresh peaches in a simple syrup.

Recipe: Easy Peachy Dump Cake submitted by Joyce H.

  • 1 Large Can Peaches (I used a 29 ounce can and did not drain the juice)
  • 1 yellow cake mix

  2. This is a favorite of ours in the Dutch oven when camping. The flavor combinations are endless, too!!

  3. Easy *AND* gorgeous! You really catured some beautiful shots Kristen!

  4. This takes me back many many years. I mean MANY; when I was a girl in my 20’s. I think the one I made was a cherry dump cake. Same thing but a can of cherries instead of peaches. I suppose we get away from using canned fruit and boxed cake mixes as we move into the homemade realm yet I am now recalling all you have said. How easy and how good this cake is!

  5. This is absolutely so easy! I love Peaches and love how it just comes together in a few steps. Thanks for sharing. Must try this right now!

  6. This looks so good, and your photos just get better and better, so amazing.

  7. Lucky Joyce! I love anything with peaches and something this easy has me thinking of making this soon. Love the pics, Kristen! Beautiful as they always are!

  8. Do you drain the can of peaches first?

  9. Three ingredients, delicious and simple-yay, I’m all over this!

  10. 4 ingredients for a delicious dessert? done. thanks!

  11. Mmmm, the easier the better!

  12. One of my roommates in college made something like this and I had completely forgotten about it till now. I think she used frozen peaches and frozen berries. I love easy stuff like this! I need to figure out a DIY yellow cake mix because so many are not okay for Logan these days.

  13. Beautiful photographs as always, Kristen. I could just pick up that spoon and have a big ole bite of this deliciousness!!!

  14. Laurie@TheBakingBookworm says:

    I can see why you were skeptical! Only 3 ingredients?! This is a great beginner recipe. I’m going to see if my kids want to make it. Thanks!

  15. You had me at PEACHES!!!! I will make this for sure!!!! YUMMMMMMMM! XO, Pinky

  16. Easy enough even I could make it!

  17. I love the fact you admit you were sceptical but were pleasantly surprised, this makes me much more likely to give it a go myself as it really does look lovely but I too was thinking ‘too good to be true?’ No it seems! Hurrah! :)

  18. I’ve seen Peach Dump Cake before and always thought the lack of butter or eggs was so weird. I’ll have to trust you and give it a shot, though.

  19. Gorgeous cake … so simple and versatile. Beautiful photos too Kristen!

  20. Is it strange that I find the title “dump cake” so inviting? It sounds like pure comfort.
