Create, Cook, Talk: Peach Dump Cake
Welcome to Create, Cook, and Talk
I’m Chantai, and to keep my daughter active, entertained, and learning during COVID-19. I started cooking with her and then sharing it with all of you via a cooking show (Facebook – Youtube). To keep it fun and interactive, we are asking you all to share a recipe with us. Then we will cook, adapt, and modify the recipe/method to make it easier for us to cook with our kids.
In this recipe, we are cooking a Peach Dump Cake.
The recipe was sent to us by one of Kailee’s friends, Ms. D., and was shared from The Stay at Home Chef’s site.
Today’s recipe involves peaches, so, to help Kaillee learn, talk, and practice language skills, I share a few fun facts about peaches. I ask Kailee questions like, “Did you know that Georgia’s nickname is the Peach State” and “Do you know why peaches are a summertime favorite?” The answer is because the peak season for peaches is June through August (summertime).
Then, I asked Kailee if she knows what peak season means?
I’ve often found that Kailee will nod her head at me in agreement but does not understand certain words. So, I have started to ask her if she understands the word, and if not, I try to break it down and explain it to her in a way that she will understand.
So, back to explaining peak season, I explained that it means when the peach is at its ripest, most juicy, and the best time to pick, eat, and enjoy.
August is also National Peach Month.
Did you know that according to AGhires, the inside of peaches has three different “flesh” colors: yellow, white, and less common red. Yellow is the most common in the United States.
Then we’re on to cooking our Peach Dump Cake.
PEACH DUMP CAKE
- 2 pounds sliced and peeled peaches (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Watch how to make this recipe below or get the directions from The Stay at Home Chef.
Cooking Tip (See above image): The nature of dump cakes makes it difficult to spread the flour mixture evenly. Flour mixture may not mix with liquids in spots and will remain raw if you notice raw spots while baking, use a spoon to flatten the spots out to absorb the juices and cook evenly.
We hope that you enjoy this recipe.
