As a mom on a limited budget, when I cook, my four favorite words to describe a recipe are cheap, easy, fast and delicious. These same four words describe my favorite peach pie recipe.
It tastes so delicious that people think I spend hours baking the pie; in fact, I finish baking it before the oven has finished preheating it. It’s my favorite “take-out” dessert every time we have company over.
HOW TO MAKE A PEACH PIE WITH CAKE MIX
This must be the easiest recipe you’ve ever tried. By making a peach pie with cake batter, you get all the delicious flavor and literally no hard steps!
Step 1: Start by pouring a large can of peaches into the bottom of your 9×13 casserole. If you want to include all the juices, just discard the whole can.
Step 2: Sprinkle a bag of yellow cake mix over the peaches in the pan. Don’t mix the cake mix with anything else, but cut the bag open and sprinkle it evenly over your peaches. It’s that easy. You also don’t need to stir or stir.
Step 3: Melt a stick of butter (8 tbls) and spread the butter evenly over your peach pie with the cake mix. The juice from the can of peaches and the melted butter will moisten the cake mix and the result will be perfect, again without mixing.
Now just bake at 350°F for 30 minutes and enjoy! I love to add a large scoop of vanilla ice cream to my 3-ingredient peach pie, but she doesn’t need it.
