End of summer-get your seasonal produce while it lasts! Peaches-I love just eating them standing over the sink with the juice running down my arm, but they’re even better to bake with. I needed a dessert to take to brunch on Sunday at the home of my blogging friend L., from Cucina Cara Mia.
I consternated for days about what I should make with not a lot of time for preparation. Days went by and I still hadn’t made a decision. Finally a light bulb went off and I remembered this delicious and super easy peach cake that I’ve been making for years. It’s on a faded piece of paper with half the recipe washed away but I’ve made it enough times to know what to do. Try it. You’ll like it!
2/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1-3/4 cup flour
3 peaches, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9″ cake. In a mixer blend sugar with butter. Mix in eggs one at a time and when blended, add flour, until just mixed. Spread mixture over bottom of prepared pan. Arrange peaches over top of cake. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until skewer inserted comes out clean. Top with brown sugar and put cake under broiler for a few minutes, until sugar is melted. Enjoy! Serves 8.
