  1. Discard 1/2 of the juice from the peaches and pour the rest into a saucepan. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar. Empty the cake mix on top of the peaches in an even layer. Place the margarine on top of the cake mix in the center.
  2. Cover sauce pan with a lid and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Once you see steam escaping the saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking for 10 minutes. Do not lift the lid during this time! Remove from heat and allow to stand with the lid on for 15 minutes before serving. The cake mix should look like dumplings.

VERY FAST! VERY EASY! The first time I made it with canned peaches and I agree - omit most of the sugar. I added the cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg too. It was wonderful! The second time I used fresh peaches and it needed the sugar. I keep the little 9 ounce cake mixes in the pantry just for this recipe but I have doubled it and used a whole cake mix (in a much larger pot) and it turned out great! I have used several different fruits, altering the spices to match the fruit (apple pie spice with apples, etc.) and they have all turned out very well. I made it once with chocolate cake and strawberries and served it with whipped cream on top - YUMMY! This is an awesome and very versatile recipe! I made it today for some unexpected guests, a single mother with three kids, and she was impressed with how fast and easy it was. When she tasted it she made me give her the copy of the recipe I had printed out on the spot and took it with her!


I admit, I was a little skeptical to try this recipe after reading the one "bad" review on the first page. I decided to give it a shot anyways, and boy am I glad I did! I only used about 1/2 cup of cake mix (which turned out to be perfect), I omitted the sugar (I used canned peaches), and I melted the butter before drizzling it over the top. The result was anything BUT dry...(which is what I was most worried about per the bad review). We ate it with homemade whipped cream and some vanilla ice cream...perfect!


Great recipe when the peaches are ripe and the weather's hot so you don't want to use the oven! Beware! 9 oz. of cake mix is 1/2 the standard box usually sold. I almost made the mistake of adding the whole box. I used fresh peaches, added 1/2 cup fresh orange juice and sprinkled it with only 2 Tbs. sugar. Next I'll add some blueberries. Can't wait to try it with apples when they're ripe this fall! Very yummy!
