  • Oven


  • 2 pounds fresh peach slices, you can also use canned or frozen peaches
  • cups sugar, divided
  • cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • vanilla ice cream, optional, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish with butter and sprinkle with a bit of flour.
  • Arrange peach slices inside the baking dish in one single layer.
  • Sprinkle peaches with ¼ cup sugar; set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • Sprinkle cake mix over the peaches; shake the baking dish so the cake mix combines with the peaches.
  • Drizzle melted butter all over the top of the cake.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cake is golden brown on top and fruit is bubbly.
    Check on the cake around the 25-minute mark, and if you see dry flour on top, push the flour down into the fruit and continue to bake.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.


  • To reach 2 pounds, I used 6 large peaches. This number will vary depending on the size and weight of your peaches.
  • If using frozen fruit, you do not need to thaw it beforehand.
  • Check on the cake around the 25-minute mark; if you see dry flour on top, push the flour down into the fruit and continue to bake.
