Mary R's Story

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..

Ingredients

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

1
Prepare cake according to directions on the box ,using two(2)8-inch cake pans.Cool and split each layer using a large knife .
