Gluten Free Peachy Cake Balls

Pin It

               Peachy Cake Balls


      Peaches, what can I say about them; I think Peaches are one of the GREATEST fruits ever, so anytime I can put a Peach in a dessert I will, and cake balls and peaches together, there is NOTHING better!!!  Every time I go to a wedding, baby shower, or wedding shower they always have Fantastic looking desserts that I NEVER get to eat!!  I smile and nod and have a piece of fruit, and a vegetable with no dip, for fear it will make me sick, then when I go home I feel more bitter every time, and make a big batch of something I can eat, because I am so jealous of all the pretty desserts.  So enough whining, I make cake balls so when I need a pretty dessert, or my Gluten Free Friends need one, we can just pull a couple out of the freezer, and have OUR very own tasty and pretty treat, that others are jealous of!  So, if you need a pretty treat, make cake balls and eat them in front of your Gluten eating family, they will be jealous!

-1 box Betty Crocker GF yellow cake mix

-3 large eggs

-3/4 cup buttermilk

-1 stick of butter melted(not bubbling)

- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

       Mix all of these ingredients together in a mixer or large bowl with a hand mixer, for 2 min.  Pour it into a 9x13 inch pan.

     Bake at 350 degrees for  25-27 min, don't overcook or it will be dry.  Use a 9x13 inch glass pan and spray it with Pam.   Once it is cooked, let it cool completely then crumble it up and set aside.  You can even put the crumbles in a Ziploc and freeze or wait until the next day.



- 1 brick of cream cheese, that has come up to room temperature

- 1/4- 1/3 cup powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)

-1 cup fresh peaches (you can also use frozen) if you want less peaches you less, I love them, chop them into small chunks.


       Mix all of these ingredients together with a wooden spoon,or like I do, with fresh clean hands.  When it is all combined then roll them into nice even balls, and put them on a pan that has been sprayed with Pam, and then throw them in the Freezer and leave for 2 hours or over night.


      Finish: sometimes I am lazy and when the balls are frozen, and I don't have time to finish them that day, I just take them off the pan and put them in  a freezer bag for another day.  Don't buy candy coating, it cracks and it's the pitts!!! I always buy the big bricks of Chocolate white or dark, it melts so much better, and stays on the cake balls or anything.  So get your chocolate, put it in a microwave safe bowl and heat it up a minute at a time, and stir.  If it is too thick, add some Crisco, sounds nasty but makes it so much easier to dip!  I put tooth picks in the top of the frozen balls and then use that too dip it in the chocolate,  then when it hardens it pulls right out.  Once you do this it is so easy, if you want pops add sticks when you are rolling them.


 Cake Balls are Fantastic, and they store really well; that is if you can keep them around that  long.  My longest batch has lasted 2 months in the freezer and been great, tasting like they were made that day!  Let me know what you think.
