Peach-Glazed Cake Recipe

Peach-Glazed Cake Recipe

"After tasting this cake, guests always ask for a second slice...and the recipe," writes Samantha Jones from her kitchen in Morgantown, West Virginia. "Everyone is surprised when they learn this dessert is so easy to make. I often garnish servings with pear slices instead of peaches."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) pear halves, drained
  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) peach preserves, divided
  • 1 cup sliced peeled peaches or frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed

Directions

  • 1. Place pears in a blender, cover and process until pureed. Transfer to a large bowl; add the cake mix and eggs; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  • 2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  • 3. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat 1/2 cup of peach preserves, uncovered, on high for 45-60 seconds or until melted. Slowly brush over warm cake. Cool completely.
  • 4. Slice cake; top with peaches. Melt remaining preserves; drizzle over top. Yield: 12 servings.
