This 2-ingredient peach cake is as delicious as it is easy to make. Although it only has two ingredients, it explodes with flavor with every bite.

Delicious and Easy-to-Make Peach Cake

If you’ve tried my 2-ingredient apple cake or my decadent 2-ingredient cherry chocolate cake, you know I like easy recipes.

But a lot of flavor is essential in my world. I don’t mind working hard in the kitchen, but if there’s a shortcut (or 2), I’ll find it.

As I already mentioned food has be delicious for me to make it a second time.

I figure if I’m going to consume calories, they’d better taste good. After all, I’ll have to take an extra walk or two later. But it is so worth it for this peach cake!

I timed this recipe so my husband could take most of it to his men’s Bible study group. That’s because if it stayed in the house, I’d eat it all.

2-Ingredient Peach Cake Ingredients

As the name implies, you only need two ingredients to make this delicious dessert. Basically, it’s just yellow cake mix and peach pie filling.

Yellow baking mix and pie filling

Yes, I realize that both of those ingredients has other ingredients in them. But look on the package of anything, and you’ll see that most packaged food has a list of more than one item.

As for this peach cake, it’s delicious and so easy to make you might feel guilty that you didn’t have to work all day for the results.

You can serve it without anything on top, or you can add some whipped cream. That would be super easy.

Another thing you can do is frost it with your favorite frosting.

Vanilla frosting and peach preserves

I used a combination of vanilla frosting and peach preserves. So my version—at least this time—is very … well, very peachy.

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!

Batter in a baking pan

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.

Cake Topping

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.

I wonder if you could add some chopped pecans to it? I always put some in my peach cobbler.

Hi Teresa. Absolutely! In fact, I think I'll do that next time I make it! Thanks for the tip!

My husband picked up the Apple Carmel pie filling. He could only find 1 can. Will it still be good, but thinner on the yummy part? I'm thinking of using a smaller pan, but you mentioned it's a BIG, thick cake! Should i just wait for a 2nd can?!? TIA, Grammyn2

I'm not sure how it'll turn out, but I'm one to try anything to find out. You might just discover your new favorite cake! As for the size of the pan, with only one can of pie filling, I think the smaller pan will be fine. If you decide to make it with what you have, please let me know how it turns out.

I’m just curious, is this supposed to be overly moist, almost gooey in the middle. It’s very tasty but we baked it for almost 50 minutes and it didn’t seem to cook all the way through.

Hi Marjorie, It should be very moist and maybe even a tad gooey, but not too much so. Did you use a 9"x13" pan? I've made the mistake of using a 7"x11" pan in the past, and it took a bit longer to cook. I hope you at least enjoyed the cake. Another thing to remember is that you don't have to worry about eating raw eggs with this cake, and the gooeyness is most likely a clump of peach pie filling.
