Fruit-Bottom Cake

Fresh peaches and blueberries are the perfect pair in this dessert with old-fashioned taste and new-fashioned ease!

Ingredients

1
Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ French vanilla cake mix
1
to 1/4 cup water
1/3
cup oil
3
eggs
2
large fresh peaches, ripe but not mushy
1
cup fresh blueberries (or more, as desired, plus extra for garnish)
1/4
cup melted butter
1/2
cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2
cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/3
cup flour
1
teaspoon cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon nutmeg

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare 9x13 cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix as directed on package, using the eggs, oil and water. (NOTE: These ingredient measurements are specific to a Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Cake mix.) Pour batter into pan.
  • 2 Wash, peel and slice the peaches. Lay slices on top of batter. Wash blueberries and sprinkle over peaches.
  • 3 In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, flour, nuts, and spices. Mix well to make streusel and sprinkle over fruit.
  • 4 Bake cake at 350° F for 35-40 minutes, until golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Fruit will drop to the bottom during baking.
  • 5 This cake is delicious served warm with softened vanilla-bean ice cream or whipped cream sprinkled with fresh blueberries. It is also good cooled or chilled. Refrigerate any leftovers so the fruit on the bottom doesn't spoil.

Fruit-Bottom Cake


Retro Recipe Redo is a new Quick Dish series that gives old recipe faves a mini makeover so they're easier and quicker for today's busy cooks.


This week's recipe redo: Fruit-Bottom Cake! Light and fluffy on top, moist and fruity on the bottom -- vintage taste brought up-to-date with a cake mix kick start.

My fresh peaches and blueberries were planning to elope. Admittedly, they're the perfect pair, but I wasn't ready to give them my blessing just yet. I had to think fast, so I married their summery tastes in this super easy cake with a fruity base:

Cake with Fruit on the Bottom

This recipe is crazy and fun. And easy? Oh, yah, it's easy.

Start with a Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix (I chose the French Vanilla flavor) and mix it up just like the package says. Slice some peaches and toss those on top with fresh blueberries. If you love fruit, don't be shy -- add lots! I used a bunch of blueberries:

Then crumble the sweet and crunchy stuff -- a quick streusel -- over all, and bake away:

Add some time to the bake time listed on the package because the blueberries and peaches are fresh and add moisture.

Then, SURPRISE! The fruit and streusel take a dive during their romp in the oven, so you have a lovely golden-topped beauty to serve warm, garnished with whipped cream and fresh blueberries.

Or, if you're like my hubby, opt for softened French Vanilla ice cream on top instead of whipped cream. Either way, you've got a super fresh, super delish dish for dessert tonight. And you didn't even break a sweat to make it.

Grandma would be so proud -- even if you didn't make the cake totally from scratch. Turns out, even she wouldn't be able to tell!
