Crock Pot Peach Dump
Last weekend was pretty hot. Ok we have probably had hotter days but it was another weekend without air conditioning in our household so it seemed worse. I was craving baked goods, probably out of comfort, but I was defiantly not turning on my oven! I had looked up slow cooker recipes but all the yummy looking ones are made with chocolate cake. All fine and dandy because I usually have every kind of cake mix on hand at home. Well this happened to be the weekend I was out of chocolate… go figure. I wasn’t in the mood to run to the store, let alone move around very much, so I put it off. Ok maybe I am a big baby in the heat, I know it could be much worse so I am thankful for what we had.
Today I had the baking itch again and wanted to make something. Two problems: it was still too hot to use my oven and I still hadn’t gone to the store. I decided to widen my search and find other recipes and thankfully I found one that calls for ingredients I had on hand. Todays search was very successful because I also found a new website that has tons of recipes and sortable searching functions. I found Crock Pot Peach Dump on Yummly and I already know I will be going back to look for other ideas. Make sure to check it out.
What you need:
- 2 cups peaches (frozen, sliced un-drained)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 9 ounces white cake mix (about half a two layer package)
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
First lightly grease the slow cooker. Place peaches in the bottom. Sprinkle peaches with cornstarch and toss. Drizzle with vanilla and sprinkle brown sugar over all. Sprinkle with cinnamon then cake mix. Drizzle melted butter evenly over cake mix. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. It is done when the cake mix begins looks like pie crust and the edges are browned.
They call it Crock Pot Peach Dump because basically all you do is dump the ingredients in and turn on your slow cooker. Cant get any better than that. Let me just say the smell while it is cooking is amazing, better than any candle would do.
If you are looking for an idea on how to use the remaining cake mix check out my post on Funfetti Rice Crispies.
