Easy Black Forest Cake

I tried this recipe for easy Black Forest Cake over the weekend and it was so good. My frosting in the picture looks weird because I used french vanilla pudding in the frosting instead of regular. The french vanilla turned it yellow. I think chocolate pudding mix would be good too.
 Black Forest Cake
1 devils food cake mix, prepared according to directions
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 can of cherry pie filling
2 tubs of cool whip
1 small pkg of instant pudding
Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan. Pour the mini marshmallows in the bottom and spread out evenly. Pour the cake batter on top and spread out evenly. Drop the cherry pie filling by spoonfuls onto the cake evenly (there will be parts with no cherry). Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until it is set in the middle. Let cool. Mix the cool with with the instant pudding. Spread on the cake.

Peach Cake

This is really easy to throw together and tastes so good. I baked it this morning to take with us to lunch today and it smelled so good we all had a hard time staying out of it until it was time to eat it.
Peach Cake
stick of butter
2 c. sugar, divided
1 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
2/3 c. milk
large egg
1 t. vanilla
2 cans of peaches drained
2 t. cinnamon
Spray a 9 x 13 pan.  Put the stick of butter in it and stick it in the oven at 350 to let it melt. While it's melting, whisk together 1 c. of sugar with the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the egg, milk and vanilla. Pour into the 9 x 13 pan (making sure the butter is totally melted). In the same bowl, mix the remaining 1 c. of sugar with the cinnamon. Toss in the peaches and coat them. Evenly distribute the peaches around the batter. Scrape the bowl of any leftover cinnamon/sugar mixture and drizzle on the cake. Bake for 40 minutes.
