I absolutely hate recipes that use the word “dump” in the title. I get the point that they are supposed to be ridiculously easy, but there has to be a better term for it than that. I’m totally open to any suggestions you may have. Something about food characterized as dump anything just completely ruins it for me. I apologize if that’s too gross to mention in a food blog.
Weekends are great for being adventurous or for being lazy. Especially when it comes to cooking. It’s a good time to tackle a recipe that is a little too involved for a weekday. It’s also a good time to whip up something easy with little muss and fuss while you binge watch some tv or read a good book. A big project does require a bit more planning, but the results are almost always worth the effort. And conversely, if you’ve had a busy week and just want a yummy dessert with minimal work, that just sweetens the deal, so to speak.
This weekend fell into the latter category for me. I wanted something a little sweet, but not a huge process or mess. And I wanted to utilize what I already had in my kitchen. After looking through my cupboards, I realized I had everything I needed to make a delicious and easy peach cobbler. Some recipes refer to this a dump cake. I reject that title due to the aforementioned reasons. This recipe doesn’t need eggs, and you could substitute oil for the butter and coconut milk for regular milk if you want to make it vegan. I have seen a variation of this made with a yellow cake mix, but it’s so simple to make without it. And why spend extra money on a box mix? Save your money for quality ice cream!
I hope you give this a try. It’s amazing served warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream ♥️
