Peach Cake

Peach Cake

This is a plain, old-fashioned cake.  It is best served with ice cream or whipped cream.  The recipe makes a 9X13 cake, but I made up 2 8X8s and froze one for future use.   I have been doing that  a lot lately; I hate to heat up the house in the summer.  By making two desserts during the spring and freezing one, I can have extra time to play with the kids, too.Peach Cake

  4. >Great recipe! I've never eaten a peach cake before, but it sounds like it would be yummy!

    I love your idea of baking it as 2 8×8 cakes instead of the 9×13. Sometimes a 9×13 is too big for us.
