This recipe was touted on Pinterest as being the 'Best Dessert EVER!'. Well, I'm gonna have to disagree with that, but it was pretty tasty. I like peaches, but I hardly ever eat them, so I was excited to try this.
This is a great dessert for people (such as myself) who hate baking. It's an easy recipe that doesn't require any great skill, and it is tasty. Not the 'best dessert ever', but good (with cream cheese as an ingredients, you really can't go wrong).
As for the cake mix, I used French Vanilla. It was 'Eh'. I think I would recommend using yellow. I was going back and fourth about which one to use, and I just don't think the french vanilla was the best choice.
I realize it's kind of strange to be sharing a peach recipe in September, but as I said a couple days ago, I'm digging into my drafts folder for recipes. This is one that's been sitting in there for quite some time...since about July. It was time to get him out of there. Besides it uses canned peaches which you can get all year, so if you're missing summer, or live in the south where summer sticks around till about November, then this is worth a try!
