Peach Shortcake Cake

Peach "Shortcake"

Yeah, it’s kind of redundant. This cake really isn’t shortcake but it tastes like it. I was searching for a sheet cake my son might like and came across this one (on pinterest of course). It looked delish. Sadly, there was not a single strawberry at store where I go for weekly supplies (yes, I’m a Wal-Mart shopper–there, I said it.) But they did have some decent looking peaches and I had peach jam on hand from last summer’s canning.

So here’s my take on it:


  • Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup peach schnapps
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons peach jam

Bake as directed. Spread 1/4 cup peach jam on hot cake.


  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Beat in whipped topping until fluffy. Spread on cooled cake and refrigerate for at least one hour. Top with fresh sliced peaches just before serving.
