I was confused by this recipe at first because it does not state whether you mix the cake as stated on the box or if you just dump the powder on top. I saw some reviews that talked about the powder, so I just went with that. I have made this twice. The first time I used the pan size recommended and one large can of peaches and dumped the whole bag of (white) cake mix on top, sprinkled a little cinnamon. The taste was really, really good. However, the cake mix was mushy and soggy in many areas, and then crumbly in others. A lot of mush in fact, more much than peach. The second time, I used a slightly smaller dish, doubled the peaches, forgot the cinnamon, left maybe a half a cup of (yellow) cake mix out, and poked it a little with a knife to get the powder down into the peach juice. I thought the second time was much better. I thought the cinnamon was missed, the flavor cake mix made no difference, and there was less mush. I think next time I will omit even more cake mix, having just enough to cover the peaches and definitely add some cinnamon. It's not a perfect "peach cobbler" which is what we've been calling it, but it is good!
