I get so many peaches in my weekly produce delivery.. I wanted something besides a cobbler or pie this time.. So I found this recipe (it originally called for canned peaches but I modified it for fresh peaches!)
It’s baking now.. Probably by the time I get this written up it will be ready. My daughter already said “O2h my gosh that smells good!”
So here you go!
1 box yellow cake mix, divided
1 cup all purpose flour
1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) dry yeast
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
5 cups uncooked peaches
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup confectioner sugar
2-3 Tbs milk
Wash peaches, and slice. Place in small saucepan with 1/2 cup water and 1/4 sugar. Cook over medium high heat and stir regularly. Peaches should be soft and syrupy. Remove from heat, let cool. Reserve 2/3 cup juice from the peaches.
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 pan.
Measure 2 cups of the dry cake mix and pour into a mixing bowl. Reserve remaining cake mix.
Add flour, yeast, warm peach juice (reserved from the peach cooking process) to the 2 cups dry cake mix . Mix well. Add the eggs, stir until combined. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan. Pour the cooked peaches over the top and spread evenly.
In a medium size bowl, put the reserved cake mix and the butter. Blend together with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle this mixture over the peaches.
Bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes.
In small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle this over warm cake.
As always – enjoy!
PS Cake is now out of oven and it smells fabulous!
