  • 15.25 oz. boxed yellow cake mix I use Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix
  • 3/4 cup (1+1/2 sticks) unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 73 oz. canned peaches { 2 (29oz.) cans + 1(15oz.) can } well-drained and patted dry
  • 16 oz. (1 pint) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • ground cinnamon to garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
    Drain peach juice well. Place peaches on a double layer of paper towel or kitchen cloth. Blot peaches dry.
    Pour cake mix in a bowl. Cut butter into cubes then add to cake mix like pie crust and blend until dough comes together and no dry cake mix remains. I used a food processor to blend the butter and cake mix.
    Evenly spread dough into bottom of prepared casserole dish. Push dough until even and flat.
    Evenly spread peaches on top.
    In a small bowl, whisk together 2 egg yolks, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 16 ounces sour cream.
    Spread topping over peaches. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
    Bake in oven 25-40 minutes. The cake is usually done at 25-30 minutes but ovens may vary.
    Allow Peach Delight Cake to cool then cut into 18 slices.


THICKER CRUST - This recipe can be adapted to make a double thick cookie cake mix crust bottom. Simply double the crust ingredients (cake mix, and butter). Bake about 40-45 minutes.
