This springtime layer cake is peachy and creamy. My mom gets requests for this cake from my brother for his April birthday. —Tamra Duncan, Decatur, Arkansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) sliced peaches, undrained

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) peach yogurt

"I discovered this recipe more than 13 years ago on the back of the yellow cake mix I bought. I made it several times until I moved out of state and lost the recipe. I searched and searched and was very happy to have found it again. Every time I make this, it's a big hit. I make a little extra whipped topping for those who want to add a little more to their personal slice of cake. Make this easy recipe and people will think you're a culinary genius."

"Lovely cake, will definitely make again. Next time I won't use so much peach yogurt (the topping wasn't firm enough) and/or I'll use a 9x13 pan and frost it in the pan."

"This is luscious! In the summer, I use fresh peaches. I also use a cream stabilizer (Whip It) to keep the whipped cream from collapsing. Thanks for posting, Tamra!"

"Really good and so light! If I were going to do anything at all to this recipe it might be to add apricot nectar to the peach juice instead of water to make the 1-1/4 cup. I didn't do that, but that's an idea. Other than that, I made it exactly like the recipe and everyone loved it."

"Made this cake for a Church Brunch. Everyone loved it and there was not one crumb left. I used a Mango Greek Yogurt and mixed it with Cool Whip and some of the peaches and used the rest of the peaches for decoration on the topping. The topping was firm and held up well all the way down to when the last piece was sliced."

" Most 2 or 3 layer cakes can be made in a 9x13 pan. Even Bundt cake recipes can be done in the flat pans. If you still want to make it as a layer, just cut the 9x13 in half and stack the 2 layers together.

"I made this cake for my husband's birthday and it was very yummy and moist. I thought the whole can of peaches would be a bit much for the frosting, so I added half of them to the cake batter before baking and the remaining half to the frosting. It turned out perfect!! Very pretty cake too."
