Our kitchen crew used a little less sugar, brown sugar and butter, then added buttermilk to replace some of the moisture in this classic dessert remake.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

"The topping was sweeter than expected...probably because the peaches were canned in heavy syrup. Will try recipe with fresh or frozen fruit next time. Couldn't find my 9" pan, so used an 8" and baked about 15 minutes longer. It was wonderful served warm with whipped cream."

"This was a great cake. Not as pretty as the picture. Don't know why the makeover cake used canned peaches instead of fresh. Used fresh then used peach puree instead of juice from the can. Would definitely make again but would try doubling the peaches on top."

"This is really good. I have made it several times. The peaches are a nice change of pace from traditional pineapple upside-down cake."
