That "Betty" she keeps me on my toes- I just love checking out her recipes- I thought you might like this one! It's a twist on her traditional dessert, just top this one with crushed pineapple and peach halves. My family loved this one -even better than the pineapple one- you will too! Enjoy!

15 servings


15 Min


1 Hr 25 Min




1 c
butter or margarine
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
15 medium
peach halves in heavy syrup, drained
maraschino cherries
8 oz
can crushed pineapple, drained,juice reserved
18 oz
box betty crocker super moist yellow cake mix
1/3 c
vegetable oil
3 large

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 350^.
Melt the butter in a 13x9-inch baking dish in the oven. Remove from oven; sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter.
Place peach halves on paper towel; pat dry.
Place a maraschino cherry in center of each peach half; place cut side down on brown sugar-so cherries are under the peach.
Spoon the pineapple around peaches.
Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure 3/4 cup.
In a large bowl, beat cake mix, juice mixture,oil and eggs with electric mixer on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes. Scrape bowl often.
Pour batter carefully over peaches and pineapple; spread evenly.
Bake 45-53 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and top of cake is golden brown.
Immediately run knife around side of pan to loosen cake. Place on a heat-proof plate upside down on pan; turn pan and plate over. Leave pan over cake 1 minute so topping can drizzle over cake. (I place a very hot wet towel on bottom of pan to help it along)
Lift pan and cool 30 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
"Betty" says store in refrigerator covered- but there is not much left when my family and friends attack it!
Sometimes I bake it in 2 cake pans and freeze one after it is baked and out of the pan. Or I bake it in a 9x9-inch pan and one loaf pan , it works great both ways. Enjoy- I know you will-Yummy....
