My go to recipe when I want a sweetie fix. Easy and yummy. But, I had to increase the melted butter to 3/4 cup as the amount called for left the cake top grainy as the cake mix did not absorb the butter. Used both the peaches and pineapple and were both great. Used the fruit packed in natural juice, not the slightly sweetened,

Our patients really enjoyed this; however, when I made it, I found that I needed 3/4 cup margarine as the 1/2 cup wasn't enough to absorb into the mix. Also, while both peach and pineapple versions were good, the texture was much softer and kind of "gooey" for the peach, but both were very good. For a flavor boost, I added 1 tsp. rum extract to the pineapple and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the peach version (mixed into the fruit juice). A great, easy recipe!

I have made this using nuts on top, but I now know nuts are not kidney friendly. My mom has CKD 3, so I am very happy to know that this cake is kidney friendly, without the nuts. We have made this many times and it is wonderful. Thanks Davita!!

I tried this recipe last night. I thought it a little confusing since it didn't say to place the cake mix dry on the fruit or mix as directed. So, I placed the cake mix dry. I used Pinapple crushed and it came out very delicious. We are diabetic so 5 carbs was great. Try it you'll love it. We have a sweet tooth so we are always looking for something, this was the bomb!

This was great. We really liked it and great both for diabetes and renal. Just a couple things that could have been on recipe. should put undrained fruit and size of cans. We used pineapple and from other recipes i knew that it should be undrained and the size of pineapple can we used, we only needed one can. Its a great dessert.
