White Chocolate French Vanilla Peach Cake

I know! Why can't I just leave well enough alone! I am sure that French Vanilla Cake would be lovely! I am also sure that peach cake would be sweet and refreshing! And I know that white chocolate cake and frosting would be yummy! But put the three amazing flavors together and you get something that you absolutely can not resist! Plus it's a super easy recipe my friends! In fact, looking back, I can't take credit for this recipe at all, looks like the princess and the warrior made the whole thing! Oh well! And looking back, I think that I use the !exclamation mark! too much!!!! Sorry, it's just me!

first the eggs

super easy, a cake mix and a box of instant pudding!

a cup of milk

add the pudding

add the flour, sugar and some other pre-measured stuff

now the oil

mmm...white chocolate



White Chocolate French Vanilla Peach Cake


1 box Vanilla Cake mix
1 pkg French Vanilla instant pudding
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup oil
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 oz good quality white chocolate, chopped into small pieces

1 large can Peach slices, juice drained and peaches cut into small chunks (reserving several slices if you choose, for the top of the cake)

White Chocolate Frosting

1 cup butter, room temp
1 cup heavy whipping cream
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 oz white chocolate

Heat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer very well. Add all the rest of the cake ingredients except the white chocolate, and beat with the mixer for 2 minutes. Now stir in the white chocolate pieces.

Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Or grease a regular cake pan (if you choose not to do the triple layer like I did). Pour the cake batter into the pan and bake for 15 - 20 min (for baking in a jelly roll pan). When done, remove from the oven and cool completely.

While the cake is cooling let's make the frosting! Melt the white chocolate in a microwavable bowl for 30 second increments, stirring after each time. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter with an electric mixer for about one minute. Add the whipping cream and vanilla and beat for another minute. Add the white chocolate and sugar and mix for 2 minutes, it will look fluffy and lovely!

Mix 1 cup of the frosting and the peach chunks together in a bowl.
Cut the cake into 3 equal pieces. Set the first layer on a serving plate or platter. Spread 1/2 of the mixture on top of the first layer of cake. Set the second layer on top and spread the remaining peach mixture on that layer. Top with final layer of cake. Frost the sides and top with the remaining frosting. Use the remaining peach slices to garnish the top if you choose.

Enjoy this lovely bright and refreshing cake! Didn't the kids do an amazing job! I am so proud! They will each make someone very happy one day!
