    Directions
    Topping:

    1.
    Heat oven to 350 F. Use wrapper from stick of butter to grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
    2.
    In a medium-size bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and liqueur. Divide between prepared pans and spread to cover the bottoms. Arrange peach slices over the bottom of the pans; sprinkle with nuts. Set aside.
    Cake:

    1.
    In a large bowl, beat cake mix, melted butter, sour cream, egg whites, liqueur and 1/2 cup of the reserved peach juice on low for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for 2 minutes, occasionally scraping down the side of the bowl.
    2.
    Divide batter between prepared pans, being careful not to move peach slices. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of cakes comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire racks for 5 minutes.
    3.
    Run a small knife around the edge of cakes; carefully invert each onto a serving platter and remove pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.
