This is little chef Jess here! I'm part of the mommy group at our church, and this past week, I was in charge of bringing a sweet snack to our meeting. I wanted something simple but super tasty, then foolishly decided to try a new recipe.
Thankfully, the dessert was a huge hit! I love that this recipe serves a lot, is very low cost and all the ingredients can be stocked in your pantry and fridge for months.
- Yellow cake mix (see below for a homemade version)
- About 30 oz. canned peaches (I used peaches in light syrup, but if you have peaches in juice, that will work too!)
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- Open the cans of peaches and dump them and their juice/syrup into a 9 x 13 cake pan. Cut the slices of peaches. I sliced mine in half; feel free to do yours smaller if you prefer.
- Dump the yellow cake mix on top of the peaches and spread it out a bit so all the peaches are covered.
- Cut the stick of butter into 18 to 20 slices. Place slices of butter on top of the yellow cake mix in rows.
- Dump brown sugar on top and spread it out a bit so all the butter and other yumminess is covered.
- Bake the cake in a 350 degree pre-heated oven for 40 minutes.
Directions for yellow cake mix
- Measure out 2 cups flour, 1.5 cups sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder and a half cup dry milk into a bowl. Mix well.
- If you're using this cake mix in the peach crumb dessert recipe, mix 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in with the peaches in the cake pan.
