Just Peachy - Fresh Strawberry Peach Dump Cake

I love peaches. I love the smell of peaches in the farmers market and how their sweet smell can over power any other. I love their soft skin and how you need to wear a bib if you are going to really enjoy a good one.

Last week I was craving something sweet and had read on a blog a recipe for dump cake. You may be wondering what that is but if you have ever been part of a church pot luck then I am sure you have had dump cake. Dump cake is where you literally dump a can of cherries, pineapple, cake mix and pour a stick of melted butter over the top and bake. I love dump cake. I love how simple it is and how it turns out perfect every time. It is the perfect combo of sweet and salty and creamy and slightly crunchy. So, I decided to get to work and make up my own. I had some peaches that were a bit past their prime but would be perfect for dump cake. I also had some strawberries that were starting to look sad and lonely so I thought that they would be the perfect addition to the peaches. What turned out was dump bliss. This is the perfect dessert when you have any produce that needs to be used up quickly. You can use any berry or stone fruit and even apples if they were thinly sliced. Enjoy!

Strawberry Peach Dump Cake- serves 6
4 peaches pealed and sliced
1-2 cups strawberries hulled and quartered
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1/3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 package of butter cake mix (yep, good old Duncan Hines dry cake mix)(You can also use vanilla but I like the extra butter flavor. Freeze the other half to make another dump cake the next day)
1/3 c butter melted

Combine the first four ingredients and spread into a greased baking dish. Spread cake mix on top and drizzle butter on top evenly. Bake at 350 for one hour. Top off with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Try not to eat the whole pan.

  3. However, the tips provided in this app are of serious nature and sometimes turn out to be plain relationship advice, which
    can be helpful for women. You can compose it to present
    yourself in the best light but it's far better that the photo
    doesn't look too staged. Now it may be possible in rare instances to
    find relationships or love in an MMO but a glance at the evidence suggests it is
    a lot easier to find some quick relief.
