Easy Peach Crisp

When it comes to a comforting dessert, it's really hard to beat sweet peaches, topped with a crunchy streusel-like topping, all loosely held together with a cake-y mixture. Granted, you can always make a crisp or a betty (or even a cobbler) from scratch, but sometimes, you just need something quick and easy to prepare. 

So, if you can open a few packages and layer things together, you can make this! 

Technically, this is what's known as a "dump cake", which is a TERRIBLE name for a dessert. It makes me think of those godawful "cat box/kitty litter". We'll just call it an "easy crisp", ok?

Easy Peach Crisp
adapted from Bakerella

1 large can of sliced cling peaches in syrup
1 package yellow cake mix
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pats
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

Cut up the peaches and add to a 13x9" baking dish. Add the syrup from the can and spread into an even layer. 

Sprinkle the cake mix over the peaches. 

Place the pats of butter atop the cake mix. 

Evenly sprinkle on the brown sugar, and then the pecans. 

Bake in a 350° oven for 40 minutes. Serve warm, by itself or topped with ice cream. 


  1. Yummm and I like the sound of easy crisp. Dump cake not so much :)

    1. Crisp definitely sounds a lot more appetizing than "DUMP"!

  2. Think would add some cinammon to this.
