This makes peach cobbler, not a cake with peaches on it. There was much discussion in the reviews about how best to spread the 1/2 cup butter evenly over the pan. I think the person who grated it over the pan had the best idea. You have to freeze the stick of butter for this to work. One stick of butter = 1/2 cup of butter, so one stick will be grated onto the pan.
