easy peezy Peach Pie-Cake.
this is a definite go-to recipe that can be whipped up in no time. i always keep...HIDE...a can of pie filling in the back of the pantry just for this quick and easy cake. when someone, anyone, comes to visit they always expect a little something sweet from the kitchen and this one never fails.
i know...i have a reputation to keep up and canned pie filling does NOT boost my ratings, but this is one of those
NO-BRAINER...ALWAYS WORKS...ALWAYS TASTY
desserts that is worth standing in line at the market with canned pie filling in the basket.
it's a fabulous simple sweet treat that can be served as a dessert with ice cream or whipped cream, as a brunch side like a coffeecake with a little fresh fruit and ginger syrup...or i enjoyed it for breakfast with a little vanilla Greek yogurt
try any flavor filling...i must say that fresh fruit will not give the same outcome. you kinda need that eewey gooey sweet filling that only comes in a can...and besides the can is what makes this so darn EASY. so go out (to a market far far away) and buy a can of good ol' pie filling, quickly grab what ever flavor and dash home...no one will be the wiser...
EASY PEACH PIE-CAKE
adapted from Don't Forget Delicious
adapted from The Cutting Edge of Ordinary
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
1 cup AP flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 1/2 ounces peach pie filling
powdered sugar to finish
preheat oven to 350 F degrees. spray an 8 x8 baking pan with non stick spray...set aside
cream the butter and sugar together in a stand mixer or large bowl. add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. add the vanilla extract. mix until well combined. add flour and baking powder and mix until just combined. the batter will be thick.
spread batter into pan. it's OK if it's a little uneven because the pie filling will fill in those areas. take pie filling and scatter all over the top of the batter.
bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown, or toothpick test in the center. try to toothpick test in a spot where there is no filling.
cool and dust with powdered sugar.
