Peach Crunch Cake from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Sometimes you find a recipe that is so easy, you think it can't be good too.  

Well, this recipe is both easy and good.  No, it's better than good.  It's delicious.  It's amazing!
I've made this peach crunch recipe quite a few times and each time I make it I'm reminded at how easy it is and how much people enjoy it.  It uses a cake mix and canned peaches.  Who knew a cake mix and canned peaches could turn into this amazing delicious peach crunch cake.  

And if you have to do a lot of baking for sports or church events, you're really going to love this recipe.  I've made it with peaches, blueberries and cherries.  
No matter which fruit you use, you're going to love it.  

And yes, don't forget to check the link out at the bottom for the Blueberry Crunch Cake.
I know you're going to want that recipe too! 

Peach Crunch Cake

  • 24.5 ounce can of sliced peaches; (I used peaches in lite syrup)
  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter cut into pieces
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (which I didn't have)

Begin by emptying the canned peaches, JUICE also, into a 13 X 9 baking dish that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray.  
Sprinkle the cake mix on top.
Add the butter that has been cut into pieces.
Add the brown sugar, followed by the chopped walnuts; I used dark brown sugar.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Ready for the oven...

Looks and smells so good...

All that's needed is a little whipped cream...

  10. Hi Lois,
    that cobbler looks awesome, and wish you could email me some over!! lol
    So glad Phil will be home tonight,
    know you can't wait.......
    was so happy to hear he will still be employed at the same place, didn't realize that he had the situation of possibly losing that position. God is good, always looking out for us.

    Hubby and I are feeling much better thank you! and yes, we are so happy for both our kids. Dee passed her state boards today for Mammography so now she can just enjoy life again.......cause she was having to study a lot and it was very hard to focus when she is wanting to have a good time with her new hubby. lol
    Take care sweetie,
    and have a good weekend,
    Say Hi to Phil for us.
    Blessings, Nellie

  16. I've made one with pumpkin, but this one sounds divine with peaches. Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)

  17. Peaches are a weakness of mine, and if I made this I would have to eat it all myself (no one else in the home likes peaches). I may try to turn this into a single serve. Looks delish!

    This sounds wonderful. I've made something similiar but it didn't have the brown sugar on top. I'm going to most certainly give this a try because I love easy and I think it will go over very well here!

  29. This was OK. I thought it needed more peaches. Too much hard cake crust on top.

  31. I'm glad I saw Gina Solomon's comment. I was considering doubling the peaches, half fresh, half canned for the juice. So I'm going to for sure. Also considered adding another half cake mix but with her comment, it sounds like it'll come out fine! Thanks!! Making today!

  32. My daughter would love this!

    Thanks for linking up with Welcome Home Wednesdays! Live every Wednesday at 7AM CT.

  33. That peach crunch cake looks scrumptious. So no stirring or anything? Just pour one thing on top of the other and bake? That sounds soooo easy! Pinning! ;)
