Peachy Creamy Trifle


Tomorrow is my Father-in-law's birthday party and I was asked to make a dessert. He loves peaches so I thought I'd try a Trifle. I wanted to make it with out too much time spent in the kitchen and still have it look nice and taste great. Here it is:
Peachy Creamy Trifle

1 box of French Vanilla cake mix
1 can Peach Nectar
1 tsp cinnamon
Brown sugar

CAKE
Make cake according to directions except in place of water, add 1 1/4 c of peach nectar and add cinnamon.Pour into pans and sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Bake according to directions and golden in color- about 29 min.
Cool cakes completely.
When cooled, cut up into bite sized pieces.

SAUCY PEACHES
5 large peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
1 (21 oz) can of peach pie filling
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 c brown sugar

Peel and slice peaches. In bowl mix fresh peaches,canned peaches, cinnamon and brown sugar. Set aside.

VANILLA CREAM
1 c heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Beat in mixer on high until thick and creamy.

Now all you do is layer. Using large tall glass serving bowl, start with layer of cake pieces, then a layer of the saucy peaches. I sprinkled about 10 blueberries here for color. Spread a layer of vanilla cream over peaches. Just repeat until you run out of ingredients or run out of room. :) Just make sure to finish up with a vanilla cream layer. You can sprinkle with blueberries or add mint spring to finish it up. Put in refrigerator and keep chilled until you serve it - at least 2 hours.
Enjoy!

I love to make a good trifle any time of the year. They always seem to be the first thing to go on my buffet tables for any occasion. I love peaches so I have copied your recipe and will give it a try.
