  • 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.
