Do you have a movie that you watch no matter how often or when it’s on?
For us, that movie is Mrs. Doubtfire. You’d think we’d never seen it before because we watch it constantly. Whenever it’s on TV, it’s on our TV. Whenever it’s coming up next, we always eagerly anticipate it beginning.
We are Mrs. Doubtfire freaks.
I mean, there are worse movies *cough*minions*cough* but Mrs. Doubtfire is an odd choice, too. I mean for one, it’s an old movie that I guarantee the generation of today hasn’t seen. And it’s one of Robin Williams’ best films, methinks. I actually think we watch it so we can see the run by fruiting and count how many times Sally Field makes that face. You know, that face. (Spoiler: she makes it the entire episode).
And frankly, it’s a nice change of pace since I’ve been watching back-to-back episodes of Orange is the New Black. It’s my new fave show, and I’m watching Netflix like it’s going outta style. Needless to say, not a lot of work has been happening. TV has a way of sucking my soul out in a way I love.
But I have done enough baking, and I baked something different for a change: this Peach Snack Cake is a hugely different thing for me to bake since I’m not a fan of peaches at all. But I know you guys are, and I do things for you, ya know. I put my peach-hatin’ aside and baked you this cake and I think – no, I know – you’ll love it.
Bursting with peaches and that sweet peach flavor, it’s the perfect summertime cake for any festivity!
Peach Snack Cake
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 (21 oz) can peach pie filling
- 3 eggs
- Whipped cream
- Fresh peach slices for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, peach pie filling and eggs with a handheld electric mixer for about 2 minutes or until blended. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer.
- Bake for approx. 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Cool the cake completely before cutting into slices and serving with whipped cream and fresh peach slices.
Easy, fast and delicious – you can’t ask for a better cake! Even my peach-hatin’ family was eating this up. It’s our favorite with freshly whipped cream on top!
Have a sweet day!

I haven’t seen that movie forever!
It’s so good!
I’m the only peach lover in this house and will love this cake!!
Yeah you will! Enjoy Zainab!
I wonder if you could make this in a bundt pan
Probably! Just increase the baking time.

I’M SO HAPPY THAT YOU’RE ON BOARS THE OITNB TRAIN!
also I’ve only seen Mrs Doubtfire once! I should totally watch it again! (I feel like there’s tons of movies that if they come on I’ll watch ’em, I can’t even pick 1! lol)
Haha you make me smile Kayle!
could you do this with defrosted frozen peaches? I have some to use up.
I’m not sure how it’d work with defrosted peaches since the peach pie filling has the compote mixture in addition to the peaches. The compote helps provide moisture to the cake batter since the only other moisture is the eggs. You could prepare the cake mix according to the package directions and add defrosted peaches to the batter, though!
i have made this twice, once with apple and also with blueberry pie filling. both turned out great. with the apple I added more cinnomen and more blue berries and nuts. My question is only baking for 30 min just is not enough the cake just is not done. With the apple it took 45 mins and the blueberry took 1 hr. Is the time diff from the type of berry im using? I cant find the peach so was trying something diff. my family just loves this cake thanks for putting it out there.
Hi Debbie – the only thing I can think of is since the berries are smaller and there’s more “liquid” in them, it would cause them to bake longer. The peaches are fairly large slices so there isn’t as much liquid (that thick compote substance) as there would be with berries. Otherwise, I’m SO glad you and your family loved them! Apple and cinnamon sounds amazing!
Perfect! I need a dessert for this weekend. My sister in law loves peaches!
Awesome, Zaida! Glad to hear!
