This colorful dessert, prepared with a packaged cake mix, goes together quickly. For an even prettier cake, top with maraschino cherries and pecans.




  • Prepare cake batter according to package directions.

  • Divide the butter or margarine between two 9x1 1/2-inch round cake pans. Place the pans in a 350 degree F oven for about 5 minutes or till butter is melted. Remove the pans from the oven.

  • Stir brown sugar into the butter and spread evenly over bottoms of cake pans. Arrange peach slices over brown-sugar mixture. If you like, arrange pecan halves and/or maraschino cherry halves (cut side up) in spaces between peach slices. Spoon cake batter over fruit.

  • Bake the cake in a 350 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or till a wooden toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Remove the cakes from the oven and cool them on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Loosen the sides. Invert onto a plate. Serve warm.
