Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this cake a few years ago and it was very good. I plan on making it again this weekend but as before, can anyone tell me who puts out an 18.25 oz. box of yellow cake mix. All I can ever find is 15.25???

how about turning this peach cake into peach muffins?

Hi there! While the Test Kitchen has not made this cake recipe into muffins, we do believe that this recipe should work out if made into them. Since we have not made it this way, we cannot guarantee the results. If you make this recipe, let us know how it turns out for you; we would love to hear your feedback. Enjoy!

Can this be cooked in a tube pan? Joyce in VA

Yes, you can cook this cake in a Bundt pan, but just watch the time. It may have to cook a little bit longer. Enjoy!

Could someone post a photo so I know what the finished cake is supposed to look like? Thanks much!

For people asking about using different cake mixes, try them! Today we used a lemon cake mix with a can of lemon pie filling and it was absolutely extraordinary!!! I can't wait to experiment - chocolate cake & cherry pie filling? Oh, my! Stocking up on pie filling when it's on sale is one way to keep the cost down.

Question? can olive oil be substituted for vegetable oil? I'd appreciate an answer at, I am erasing this after I print it off. Thanks

I use olive oil in all my baking and it does great for me.

How would just a can of sliced peaches work? Would I have to drain them? I always have those on hand and they cost less than pie filling.

Take note that it is a can of peach PIE FILLING, not a can of sliced peaches. I have made this cake and it is delicious and easy.

Sorry, I see now what your question was. I misunderstood what you were asking.

If the peaches are packed in juice, you can make them into pie filling. Drain reserve the juice from the peaches. Measure and add water to make 3/4 cup. Pour 1/2 cup into a small saucepan bring to a gentle simmer. In the reserved liquid, make a slurry with 1 tablespoon cornstarch or quick cookiing tapioca. Whisk slurry into the juice. Stirring constantly cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. If desired, add 1 tsp cinnamon or 1/4 tsp nutmeg, also tasty is 1 tsp vanilla or 1/2 tsp almond extract. You can also add up to 1 tbs lemon juice to create a brighter flavor. Allow this syrup to cool for about 5 minutes in the refrigerator. Pour over canned sliced peaches gently distribute over all the fruit. This is a pretty good sub for canned peach pie filling. I use this instead of ready made pie filling all the time.

How would this be with a drop of whipped cream on top instead of frosting?

I am not an expert, however I use whipped cream on this and the one made with chocolate cake mix and cherry pie filling. both better thsn good!!

The pie filling adds a lot of sugar. Adding frosting to the cake makes it too sweet in my opinion. Try it with just the whipped cream first. If not quiet what you want, then add frosting. Easier to put it on later then try to take it off.

Oh Boy, this sounds so easy and so good, I am going to try at our next potluck. thanks!!!

I have made this recipe many times and always have requests for it. Today however I am going to try it with strawberry pie filling and see if it is just as popular. Very easy to make.

Absolutely delicious with ice cream!!

Even though the recipe says to serve warm and does not mention icing, I made it the night before and iced it with cream cheese frosting. Was a big hit at my Sunday family dinner.

i have made this so many times and it is so good you do not need icing for it .instead of peach you can use any pie filling .i have used peach,blueberry, and apple pie filling they are all very good

any sugggestions for a substitution for the pecans? My family is allergic.

walnuts are a good substitute for pecans or even raisins if nuts are a problem

toffee bits!

does this need to be frosted or served plain? Thanks!

It does not need frosted. I put walnut bits in the cake mixture, then spread some across the top before baking. The walnuts on the surface were enough. This is a delicious recipe.

I just tried this out and found it easy to make and so very rich tasting and very good! big hit with my husband!

wonder how it would be with a french vanilla cake mix.

Only one way to find out.

I bet it would be delish!

I'm going to try this with my pumpkin cake mix. I love pumpkin and peaches together.
