The beginning of the year is an exciting time, but it is also a big adjustment time for many kids and families. New schools, new classes, and new teachers are big changes and sometimes take a little time getting used to. School days can be long, especially for little ones, so sometimes those first few weeks can be hard on everyone. I remember loving days when we would come home to a special after school treat from my mom! I can remember the smell of cookies or something else I knew she made special for us at the end of the day!
Eagle Brand has some great recipes if you are hanging on to some summer treat ideas! Here’s one of my favorites:
Peaches and Cream Cake
1 package angle food cake mix, or prepared angle food cake, frozen (for easy slicing)
1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup cold water
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 (4-serving size) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cup (1 pt.) heavy cream, whipped
4 cup peeled, sliced fresh peaches (about 2 pounds)
CUT cake into 1/4-inch slices; arrange half the slices on bottom of 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
COMBINE sweetened condensed milk, water and almond extract in large bowl; mix well. Add pudding mix; beat well. Chill 5 minutes.
FOLD in whipped cream. Spread half the cream mixture over cake slices; arrange half the peach slices on the top. Top with remaining cake slices, cream filling and peach slices.
CHILL 4 hours or until set. Cut into squares to serve.
