1. Southern peach dump cake
Dump cake may not sound like the most appetizing name for a dessert, but busy cooks will fall head over heels for this when they see how easy it is. All you need are three basic ingredients to make a delicious dish family and friends will love.
Cooktop Cove
Despite its name, dump cake actually is more similar to cobbler: a layer of canned peaches topped with a layer of simple boxed cake mix. A butter topping ensures that everything bakes up moist and delicious. Top it with your favorite ice cream for a crowd-pleasing dessert. Make this at home with the help of the video below.
2. Easy peach cobbler
A warm piece of cobbler and a scoop of vanilla ice cream is a perfect way to finish off a wonderful dinner party – or a nice way to start off the day. It's so good that nobody could blame you if you ate peach cobbler for breakfast.
Cooktop Cove
There’s nothing not to love about this recipe — crunchy edges, a sweet and buttery inside — and the fact that it comes together quickly with ingredients you already have on hand doesn’t hurt! Keep a can of peach halves in syrup in the pantry, and you can whip this together in no time. See how to make this in video below.
3. Southern peach crumb cake
A multilayered Southern peach crumb cake is a delicious treat to enjoy with coffee, and this recipe is incredibly easy. The sour cream cake base is topped with a layer of fresh sweet peaches and a spiced layer of buttery crumbs.
Cooktop Cove
This cake is just as delicious when made with fresh peaches as with canned, so you can enjoy it all year. Follow along the video below to prepare this dish.
4. Southern peach pound cake
Georgia peaches are the star of this rich, buttery pound cake. The recipe below features both peaches and peach schnapps for a double dose of flavor.
Cooktop Cove
Because peaches and almonds come from the same family, they're an obvious pair; a bit of almond extract really takes this pound cake to the next level. Serve it with a scoop of peach ice cream to make it even more special.
5. Southern peach dessert sauce
Next time you serve bowls of ice cream for dessert, consider swapping out chocolate or caramel sauce for the recipe below. The concentrated summer sweetness of Georgia peaches enhance this decadent dessert sauce.
Cooktop Cove
While this recipe was certainly invented to make the most of fresh Georgia peaches, it's just as easy to make with canned peaches. Just be sure to choose peaches in juice instead of in syrup so that you get the slightly acidic flavor of the fruit. Make it with the help of the video below.
6. Bacon peach jam
The rich smokiness of bacon pairs perfectly with the sweetness of ripe peaches in the recipe below, for a jam that makes a perfect sweet-and-savory condiment.​
Cooktop Cove
As for how to use it, the sky's the limit! Pair the jam with your favorite cheeses for a unique cheese board, or use it in place of ketchup and mustard to make your burgers a little bit more gourmet. It can even be dolloped atop a freshly baked pizza to make it a little bit more special. Check out the video below to make this recipe.
