How to Make a 2-Ingredient Peach Cake
Since I wanted this cake to be thin, I used my 9”x13” pan.
If you read my other recipes, you’ll know that I have used a smaller pan in the past. That made the cake very thick, which is also good.
After preheating the oven, I sprayed my pan with nonstick cooking spray. Then I set about the process of mixing the ingredients—all 2 of them!
In a medium-size mixing bowl, dump the entire package of cake mix. Since the cake has only 2 ingredients you don’t have to worry about the directions on the package.
Next, open the cans of peach pie filling and pour them into the bowl.
Stir to mix the ingredients.
Finally, pour the mixture into the prepared pan. It’s that easy!
Bake the cake until it’s done. After you pull it out of the oven, set it on a baking rack to cool for about 30 minutes.
If you plan to frost it, make sure it’s close to room temperature. Otherwise, the frosting will melt.
Since I wanted this cake to be very peachy, I mixed some of the preserves into the frosting. Then I frosted the cake.
Then I put the remaining preserves in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften them up. Afterward, I drizzled the preserves over the cake and smoothed it out with the back of a spoon.
Now your cake is ready to be served! If you like peach desserts, you’ll love this cake!
