Peach Drumpcake




     Here's a funny story, was at the river with my friend and had brought a bag of fresh Doughnut Peaches I bought at my local grocery store. They look like little doughnuts, (given the name), and are full of delicious flavor. Sweet, soft, and perfect. We were talking about how to incorporate them into a fantastic dessert. So, we came up with this great combination of a dump cake with a crumble topping and gave it the name; drumpcake. Quick, easy, and so so good. Peach Drumpcake

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 fresh doughnut peaches
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk

1. Make the cake mix according to the box; Combine mix, eggs, water, and oil and mix together until smooth.

2. Cut up the peaches into bite size pieces and mix into the cake mix. Cook according to box.

3. Meanwhile in a little sauce pan over medium high heat melt the butter. Mix in the brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Combine until a chunky sauce has formed.

4. Just as the cake is finished, let it cool for a bit then spread the oat mixture over top.
