Good Eating Monday: Peach Cobbler Dump Cake!

Yes, I tried another new Pinterest recipe and this one is a winner!
The primary dictionary definition of a "Dump Cake," is an easily made cobbler in which cake mix is dumped over canned fruit or pie filling. 
This recipe was pinned from Del Monte, which means it's been a recipe that's been created & tested in a corporate test kitchen. That's one benefit of all those label, can & box recipes provided by manufacturers on their product packaging. You can even buy cookbooks featuring nothing, but package & label recipes of which many are vintage.

The only changes I'd suggest is add one more 15 oz can of fruit. It can be more peaches, cherry fruit cocktail, regular fruit cocktail or whatever you want. (So, I've noted 4 cans of peaches in the recipe.)  It just needs a little more volume on the fruit quantity. 
And stir a teaspoon or two of cinnamon into the fruit!
Otherwise, this is an excellent, quick dessert you can serve hot with vanilla ice cream or cooler with Reddi-whip!

Peach Cobbler Dump CakeIngredients
4 15oz cans of sliced peaches
1 to 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1 box of yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter or lite butter, melted (1 stick)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with oil spray.
Dump 2 cans of peaches with juice into 9 x 13 pan. Drain the other 2 cans and add just peaches to the rest. Add cinnamon and stir peaches around to mix it in.

Top peaches with dry cake; gently shake it evenly across the entire surface of the peaches.

Drizzle melted butter over top of dry cake mix.

Bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour until cake is a deep golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
