  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 pounds fresh peaches about 5 large peaches, cut into ½ inch slices or 3 (15 ounce) cans of sliced peaches (drained)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice


  • Pour melted butter over the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker.
  • Top with brown sugar and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.
  • Top with peaches. You’ll need to make two layers of peaches.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in vanilla and eggs.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • In a small bowl, combine milk and lemon juice. It will curdle.
  • Alternately mix in the flour and the milk/lemon juice to the butter mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Pour over peaches.
  • Drape paper towels over top of slow cooker (to absorb any condensation during baking), then cover with lid. Cook on High until a wooden skewer inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  • Turn off the slow cooker and let the cake sit for ten minutes and then carefully invert it onto a serving plate. Lifting and inverting the cake from the slow cooker can be tricky because they are typically very heavy, so you might want to grab a friend to help.
  • Serve warm.
