True Blood Recipe of the week: 'Wicked Peach Cake' from the New Sookie Stackhouse Comapnion Book

You know Ol' Dallas can be a bit cynical,  but I have just loved the new Sookie Stackhouse Companion book that was released this week. Make sure you buy this one - you will love it too.
This recipe this week is from the book and is in  the wonderful recipe section found in the book. The map of Bon Temps is worth the purchase alone ... but the special Sookie novella,  Small Town Wedding has Sookie going on a trip with Sam and the Quinn relationship is resolved ....

THE OFFICIAL BLURB:Charlaine Harris has topped the bestseller charts and has become a nationwide phenomenon, thanks to the unconventional-and otherworldly- life of Sookie Stackhouse. Now, in her own words, Sookie gives readers a look at her family, friends, enemies, adventures, and-of course-the lovers who set her world on fire...

Readers will:
            • Tour Bon Temps, the small Louisiana town that Sookie calls home, and visit the houses of her Gran and her sometime vampire lover, Bill
            • Prowl around the werewolf and were-panther communities
            • Browse through her best friend Tara's dress shop
            • Belly up to the bar in Merlotte's, where Sookie works
            • Get must-have Bon Temps recipes-including Caroline Bellfleur's famous chocolate cake
            • Test themselves with trivia questions from the series

I also have a donated copy as one of the MANY, MANY prizes in the fundraiser raffle !

In honor of the Season 4 Witch War I've chosen Wicked Peach Cake from What's cookin in Bon Temps chapter. Peaches are plentiful and cheap and maybe you need something to bring to that Labor Day picnic or  True Blood finale party!

Wicked Peach Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 pkg. peach Jell-O
1/2 c. Peach schnapps
3-4 good sized peaches chopped to make 1 1/2 cups
1/2 box powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degress. Grease and flour Bundt cake pan.
Prepare cake mix according to box direction. Add Jell-O and 1/4 cup Schnapps. Fold in peaches. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 35-40 minmutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Let cake cool and turn onto cake plate . Mix together 1/4 cups schnapps and powdered sugar to amke glaze. Poke several holes in top of cake with ice pick ( I use a wooden spoon ) before drizzling the glaze over cake. Add more schnapps if glaze is too thick ( haha) !!
