Tips For Making Peach Cobbler Dump Cake
- Be sure to slice the butter very thinly in order to get as many slices as possible so you can cover the entire cake. If you leave any areas uncovered with butter, then you will have unappetizing spots of dry cake mix.
- If topping with ice cream, try freezing scoops of ice cream before putting them on top of the warm Peach Cobbler. This will allow the ice to last a little longer before it completely melts into the cobbler.
