Will abundt pan work?

Hi there! Unfortunately, a bundt pan will not work for this recipe because there is not enough batter to fill a bundt pan. However, we happen to have a recipe for Peach Bundt Cake on our site! Hope this was helpful. :)

I have made this my go to dessert, because I am NOT a baker, and this works quite well at 5,200 '. Not many cakes do. THANKS to the food team.

You are very welcome! We're glad you enjoyed this recipe. Thank you for commenting. :)

Would you be able to make this cake in a 9 X 13 pan? I know you would have to double everything, but how long would you bake it. Thank you, candy I haven't made yet so can't rate it

You can make this in a 9 x 13 pan. You'll just need to double everything and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. Enjoy!

can you use frozen peaches for this recipe?

Yes, you can! Just make sure they're thawed first. :) Enjoy!

Absolutely delicious very very moist and just enough sweetness to make it perfectly to me. I had no problem getting it out of my glass dish. I let it rest for the five minutes and I turned it out on my plate and it was so pretty! I will be fixing this for some of my get togethers with using other fruit! Mine actually looked just like the picture that is pictured on the recipe! YUM YUM!!!!

The best peach cake ever had, next to my mothers her recipe is about 100 years old. this cake is very moist because of the sour cream. it is scrumpcious.

so rich and yummy with vanilla ice cream. and due to the richness, smaller pieces will satisfy, with a tall glass of sweet iced tea or a cup of steaming coffee.

Never thought about using peaches. Sounds good. I do use can pineapple for upside down pineapple cake and i also use a yellow cake mix and i use the liquid from juice as part of the liquid. just mix it with water until you get however much liquid the mix asks for. I don't use the syrup can fruits. i use the lite. It gives the cake more of the taste. I can't wait to try this recipe. Sometimes you just don't have a cake mix.

just out of the oven and looks great. However it took almost 1 hour to bake 35-40 minutes it was still raw

My mom used to do this with gingerbread mix on top...WONDERFUL!!!

for fall cooking and serving a spicy dessert, I sometime use a box of DH Spice cake mix. just for a change.

Would canned peaches work?

frozen is my choice,better than fresh or canned. some canned peach slices get too soft

Shall I asume you thaw the frozen peaches first? Thanks

Will a yellow batter cake mix work? Thank you.

We have not tried this method in our Test Kitchen, so we can not guarantee the results. However, it should work, it just won't be as rich and delicious! Thank you for your question!

yes use a French vanilla is great
