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

This sounds wonderful, Mary. I have peaches in the freezer from this summer. They were HUGE and on sale. I may have to make this before it gets too cold. It kinda screams warm weather to me, but, you just sounds so good!

Mary, I have a bunch of peaches sitting on my counter and I am looking over this recipe.
What do you do with the sour cream? Fold it into the whipped cream?
