Let them eat cake Abigail calls it, 'birthday'.

Moriah (with a little help from me) made a peach 'cobbler' tonight for dinner. It was soooo easy, with three ingredients: canned peaches, cake mix and butter. That's it. Really. And it's oh so yummy.

Abigail seemed quite aware of the fact that there was a sweet thing for dessert. She often says "cookie?" after meals, but tonight she asked "birthday?" With Samuel's and Jim's recent birthdays, the babes loved having the birthday cakes, so Abigail's renamed 'cake'. Now every cake is festive. Sounds good to me.

Everyone had enjoyed their first serving, and there was about a third of the pan left. I asked the table at large if we should just finish it. The general consensus was "duh, yes!" Thus ended the 'birthday'.



  1. care to share the real recipe? Sounds yummy, and easy is a good place to start! :-)

  2. 2 cans peaches or other fruit*
    1 box yellow or white cake mix
    1 stick of butter/margarine

    (*I will probably use three next time, or maybe two large cans)

    Drain a little of the juice from the fruit then layer it in the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan.

    Sprinkle/distribute dry cake mix over the top of the fruit, pressing it down a bit to soak up some of the juice.

    Cut the butter into small pieces and place the pieces all over the top of the cake mix.

    Bake 30ish minutes at 350*. Serve with vanilla ice cream for full decadence. Then enjoy the exclamations of delight. ;o)
