Prep Time:
Cook Time:

My mother use to make this cake for Christmas or Easter..As the years have gone by ,she now use's a box cake mix instead scratch cake ..Frankly ,there is no difference in taste...You can use fresh ,frozen or caned peaches ..I use the canned freestone peaches ,well drained..


1 box-butter yellow cake mix
1 1/2 cups of sugar
4 tbs of cornstarch
4 cups of chopped peaches-you can use fresh ,frozen or canned freestone peaches
1/2 cup of water
2 cups of whipping cream
2-3 tbs of powered sugar
1 cup of sour cream
a few peach slices for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

Prepare cake according to directions on the box ,using two(2)8-inch cake pans.Cool and split each layer using a large knife .
Combine sugar and corn starch in a saucepan.Add chopped peaches and water;cook over medium heat untill smooth,stirring constantly.Cool mixture completely..Combine whipping cream and powered sugar in a medium mixing bowl and beat untill stiff peaks form.
Spoon 1/3 of peach filling over split layers of cake ;spread 1/3 cup of sour cream over filling .Repeat procedure with remaning layers of cake.Frost with sweetened whipped cream and garnish with peach slices...
PERSONAL NOTE:::::I have used Cool Whip ,instead of the Whipping Cream .....P.S.Don't tell my Momma I got lazy...I like for this cake to sit in the ice box a while covered

Renee, Blondie Shannan was in the store the other day and after 20 minutes of wandering around a Super Wal-Mart while he tried to deceide what he wanted for supper. Finally I said will you please just choose something . He came up with this little Gem . Well they just do not have any thing I want to eat " I stopped and said No here is the problem you do not know what you want to eat. We are in Super Wal Mart they have ever thing under the sun, you could possible want to eat " he finally decided .I told him in the car that I never remember my Granny asking any one what they wanted to eat. You ate what was put on the table of did with out. His answer was "well that is because there were so many of all of ya'll . It would have been impossible and here there is only me ...So I get to choose, plus I am spoiled."" Really , you think.

That's kind of how I look at it Blondie, I cook what I like and you either eat it or don't. Eat cheese & crackers for all I care...I spent the time making a nice dinner or a divine leave it; more for me!
