  1. Enjoyed this for dessert last night and it was a sweet success! Love the combination of peaches with cinnamon; hands down delicious!






  2. Huge hit at my house! I had a ton of peaches so I doubled the amount of peaches but left all the same and it came out great. Just peachier, the way I like it. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you!.






  3. I made this with a zero sugar cake mix and Splenda brown sugar and it is fabulous! My husband and I have diabetes. So this was a nice treat!






  4. Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I put pecans on only half (some people in my house do not like pecans). This is recipe that is definitely a keeper.






  5. So happy to hear that you enjoyed it!! Dump cakes are usually made in a 9×13-inch pan and I do have one recipe on the blog in an 9×9 pan and I agree! They’re definitely thicker. Personal preference and thanks so much for that feedback!

  6. Oh my gosh, this is so good, I made half with pecans, the other half with walnuts, then I added Carmel syrup on top of that.😋
