Peach Dump Cake

I am finally posting a recipe for this month's recipe war. I have not avoided posting because I am bored with recipe war or because I don't like this month's theme, but rather because I posted one of the only recipes I ever make in my crock pot last month! Other than that taco meat, I put pork, chicken, or beef in to cook then add BBQ sauce and shred it for sandwiches. Occasionally I make a roast and gravy, but the roast hardly seems like a recipe to post because I just throw in the meat until it is done. Occasionally I put a package of onion soup mix or a couple spices on top, but no recipe. And Joanna already put up a BBQ recipe for sandwiches... So I have sat out until now. Honestly, this is the only other recipe I have made in a crock pot more than a couple of times. It is best made in a medium sized crock pot. If you only have one of the super big ones, you'll probaby want to double this so that the edges don't burn.

1 bag frozen peaches
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 Jiffy white cake mix
4 tbsp. melted butter

Lightly grease the crockpot; place peaches in the bottom. Sprinkle with cornstarch; 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.

See, I told you all I only like crock pot recipes where you litterally dump in all the ingredients, plug it in, then eat it!

I've never made a dessert in the crock pot. This sounds so good! I bet it'll be so good with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for posting this! I'm so excited to make something different in my crock pot.

I've got a bit of a problem. None of the grocery stores that I go to carry Jiffy white cake mix. So, I went to the Jiffy website and did a store locator search for the white cake mix. The nearest store that carries it is in New Jersey ... 188 miles away. Can I use another white cake mix? Would I just use a portion of the box? Help!!

You could just use half of a regular cake mix, I would think. I haven't tried that, but the jiffy one makes a one layer cake. So I would think that half of a mix that makes a two layer cake would work. You'll have to let us know!
