Ridiculously Easy

I mean it. Easy. E…..Z…. Peach Crunch Cake.

IMG_2336

You need some sliced peaches in syrup.

Just dump them in a 13 X 9 dish. Syrup and all.

Note: this can also be called a dump cake. But that doesn’t sound all that pretty.

Cut the peaches into smaller pieces and you can distribute them more evenly.

Next up, you need a yellow cake mix.

Sprinkle it right over the top of the peaches. No mixing. None.

Keep sprinkling until it’s all covered up.

Then layer 1 stick of butter right on the top.

For some reason this photo makes me smile. Like little pats of butter floating in clouds.

And this really makes me smile. Brown sugar baby. I can’t put this on anything without sneaking a spoonful for myself. Sugar. Straight up. Don’t tell.

Oh this is looking good. So fluffy. I need a spoon. No… I need to wait.

Finally, add some chopped walnuts.

Here ’tis from the top and again from the side.

Bake it at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes and voila…

Peach crunch cake. Really though it’s more dessert than cake.

Some for me…

Some more for me…

Good alone… good warm… good cold… and

Good warm with something cold.
