EASY FRESH PEACH CAKE WITH PINEAPPLE FROSTING

This is another old Southern Indiana recipe!

1 box plain yellow cake mix (no pudding added)
3 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups fresh peaches, peeled & chopped in the blender or food processor

Mix all the above ingredients together, except peaches, beating about 2 minutes.  Add the peaches and beat another minute.  Bake according to the cake package directions depending on the size of the pan you use.  Cool.

Frosting:
1 can (15-oz) crushed pineapple, not drained
1 package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 carton (8-oz) whipped topping

Mix together the pineapple with juice and the pudding mix.  Let stand for about 5 minutes.  Fold the whipped topping into the pineapple mixture and use to frost the cake.  Sprinkle with some coconut if desired.  Serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Don't think I have seen a recipe for peach cake like this before. It sounds very good. The frosting sounds like the one that is used on the cake made with mandarin oranges,that cake as a lot of different names. It is probably a similar cake but the peaches sound better than canned oranges.

Rochelle,

Yes, the two cakes are a lot alike.Peaches are one of my favorite fruits so I prefer this one but I like mandarin oranges, too. Oh shoot, I just love sweets!
